Preliminary work for projects can range from 3 months to 2 years so if one plans to build in spring and summer months; they would do well to hire professionals during winter and fall months. This provides ample time for the design and permitting processes, thereby making one's endeavor ready to start with their licensed contractor in the spring and summer months. Preliminary professionals are structural, civil, electrical, and mechanical engineers, designers, architects, geotechs, etc.

"RNS Consulting helped us prepare for a construction defect arbitration. Mr. Pitts demonstrated professionalism and thoroughness as he conducted the structural investigation of our home. His perfectly prepared reports explained the defects and illustrated a variety of techniques for suitable repair, while he worked with our contractor to estimate those repairs. His testimony during the arbitration was clear and concise. We were fortunate that Mr. Pitts was involved in the process."

"We were hit by a severe storm and had a mud slide. I called RNS Consulting. Ricardo Pitts answered, and calmed my nerves. He helped me with new retaining walls, and now I don't worry about the earth around our home moving. Thank you so much!"
