About Us


Robert and Kendal Hughes have been happily married over 20 years and had always dreamed of creating and running a business where they could each bring their BEST skills.


Our mission is to provide services and solutions of quality and value helping our clients achieve peace of mind.


Robert Hughes

Robert started his first handyman business before the age of ten repairing bicycles, cutting grass, and delivering newspapers.

After serving in the US Navy (Honorable Discharge) he was accepted into the Newport News Shipbuilding Apprentice Program (Honor Graduate).  

A career including Journeyman Welder, Nuclear Quality Inspector, and Nuclear Engineering Analysis required several top clearances, strong planning & communication skills, risk identification and mitigation skills, and "make it happen" work ethic.  Later, as a Construction Superintendent for Southern Home Builders he oversaw the building of over 100 plus homes a year.  Robert is proud of his reputation of being a problem solver and successfully delivering projects on time and on budget.

Kendal Hughes

Kendal's love of problem solving started as a junior camp counselor. Over the last 30+ years she's worked in both private and public owned companies in Back and Front Office leadership and management.  Now she's excited about using all her best skills at RWS.




Kendal is a P.E.O. sister and member of DYG.  She loves all things creative including writing, cooking, baking, building dollhouses, interior design, crafting, and so on.
