Radon Mitigation

Air Mitigation for most homes is sub slab depressurization. A hole is drilled through the basement slab and a pipe is plumbed to the exterior. A fan is attached to the pipe and the exhaust is run above the roof line. Free inspection and testing to determine the condition of the sub slab to give a price for the job. Please see the FESTA website for more information. The fan has a warranty of five years.


Water mitigation by aeration is used to remove radon. The equipment blows air into a tub of water that collects radon and vents it out of the building. If the water contains high iron or hardness a water softener will need to be installed ahead of the equipment. This will be included in the price. Two systems are used, the Bubble Up or the AIRaider depending on the existing conditions. Please see the R.E. Prescott and the RadonAway websites for more information.  Both have a two year warranty.

Home Inspection

It's very difficult to gain experience building houses. You have to work for many years at low pay in all weather to get a good understanding of what it takes to build a building that will last. New construction, remodeling and insulation work has shown me where buildings fail and what can be done to fix it. I use this knowledge and an array of test equipment in inspecting your house. I'm certified by InterNACHI as a building inspector, a Third Party Inspector for the Maine Building Code and  certified as a Building Analyst by the Building Performance Institute. Experienced as a registered radon mitigator I can give you useful information about cost. A thermal camera scan and an energy evaluation are free. The report will be online at Horizon Inspection Software for seven years. I will inspect your house as if it were my own. Inspections are $275.
