CONSTRUCTION DEFECT EXPERT CONSULTING
RCG represents, developers, subcontractors and homeowners in Construction
Defect Litigation all over the United States. As construction defect experts, RCG
consults on all issues of construction defects and related post-construction
installation issues associated to assemblies and building components.

LITIGATION TEAM MANAGEMENT
RCG coordinates and manages consulting expert teams for residential, low rise to
high rise commercial buildings and hospitality projects to ensure professional,
appropriate, and cost-effective results for all of our clients. Unlike some of the larger
firms, RCG never hires inexperienced consultants. We provide you personal
attention and the most experienced consultants to bring a clear and concise
understanding of your project’s issues.

DEFECT ANALYSIS
RCG compares the as-built situation to the construction plans and specifications to
determine if defects exist and, when required, provides the correct repair
recommendations, strategies and cost of repair estimates.

SITE INSPECTIONS
RCG actually investigates exterior and interior site conditions of post-construction
projects to provide thorough and comprehensive analysis of the building and site
conditions.

BUILDING CODE ANALYSIS
RCG researches and analyzes the appropriate Uniform Building Codes (UBC),
International Building Code (IBC) and appropriate local requirements to establish if
the project was built in compliance with all applicable building codes.

DESTRUCTIVE TESTING
RCG determines appropriate destructive testing methods that will prove our issues
and bring resolution to the table. RCG provides and manages the scheduling of
destructive testing crews. Moreover, RCG collects digital photos and detailed notes
of each issue necessary for field investigation evidence.

COST OF REPAIR ESTIMATES
RCG prepares detailed cost of repair estimates using line-itemized breakdowns of
labor and material and comprehensible costs.

SCOPE-OF-REPAIR RECOMMENDATIONS
RCG takes pride in preparing the correct scope of repair recommendations for each
issue. Our team of contractors and architects will evaluate each issue that will
determine a sensible repair for your project.

WINDOW PRODUCT FAILURES
RCG investigates window product or installation failures to determine the correct
contributing factors to window leaks. Many times the window is not the problem and
an RCG window expert can identify the primary source of water intrusion. Why is this
important? We, as window experts, do not want to remove and patch your building
project. RCG’s approach is to determine the primary water intrusion source and
make the appropriate repairs.

MOLD CLAIM INVESTIGATION
RCG investigates the cause and origin of the primary water intrusion to determine
the source(s) of water triggering mold growth. Ensuing to the investigation, RCG will
prepare repair recommendations to eradicate the water intrusion and will manage
the remediation and restoration of the construction project from start to finish. RCG
also collects factual evidence to support attorneys in the revitalization of damages
from the mold claim.

defects/damage throughout the United States. Building types range from large high-
rises to single-family homes. Investigation services range from visual through
