Ask an Architect

The goal of RTA’s Ask An Architect tool is to build a free library of responses to frequently asked questions. Hopefully, you’ll be able to easily find some guidance that will help you with your project.

Please try not to ask questions that only apply to your project. For example, people occasionally ask how to size a structural member for their project or something that’s too specific for an answer that benefits all visitors to the RTA website. Please try to be creative with your questions.

Providing your (project) location helps us try to give you a response specific to your region.

Providing your your email address allows us to ask a follow-up question if we need more information to address your question. Your email address won’t be added to the RTA email subscription list and it won’t be sold to any third parties.

We’ll do our best to answer all of the questions we receive so please use the following form to submit your question(s):

Your First Name:
Your City & State:
Your Email Address:
