Building a Home to be Resistant to Radon!

  • It is often easier and much less expensive to incorporate Radon Resistant New Construction (RRNC) techniques than it is to mitigate after construction is complete.

 

  • RRNC techniques have been shown to increase both the value and resale potential of your home. 

 

  • RRNC can protect your home from the presence of mold and too much moisture.

 

  • RRNC techniques have been shown to reduce heating and cooling costs of homes.Þ RRNC techniques often incorporate construction standards that builders already use and system is less visible than post-construction systems.

 

  • Soil suction is the most effective way to prevent radon from entering the home. Piping is installed into the soil, crawlspaces and soil under slab are sealed with plastic, pipes are concealed and routed through the house, if radon levels are high the system can be activated with a fan.

 

  • Radon exposure is very preventable. The use of mitigation systems have been shown to reduce radon levels in the home by up to 99%!!  

BASICS OF RADON RESISTANT BUILDING

“In my experience, homes built for health and safety sell faster. More and more of my customers know the importance of indoor air quality to their families’ health.”
