Every home or work place is different and the cost will vary. We can come to your home or work place, make an assessment, and give you a free proposal.
passive system as the home is being built. This can be accomplished with your building contractor making a simple phone call to Advanced Radon Services. When we install the system we accept the liability that it will work properly.
Newer homes with concrete slab floors on grade. Usually with a newer home you have good dry rock under the slab which gives you channels for the radon gas to pass to a suction point and be expelled by the suction fan motor above the roof line–an older home may only have dirt.
Newer homes with concrete slab basements . Again, usually with a newer home you have good dry rock under the slab. Only additional piping and labor would raise the cost versus a slab home.
Homes with crawlspaces may add to the cost of mitigation. Porous piping need to be added in the crawlspace; radon resistant vapor barrier is laid over the piping and sealed to the foundation walls. Then solid piping is extended to the suction fan motor and expelled above the roof line.
Basement and crawlspace combinations offer yet more challenges. Piping from each is combined and extended to the suction fan motor and expelled above the roof line.
Additional costs come when homeowners want piping extended through one or more floors into attic areas and through roofs instead of the easier system going to the exterior wall of a home or work place. When we recommend diagnostics be performed on older homes with suspected Kentucky red clay or when moisture is found under slabs or in crawlspaces, the price can escalate. You may need a suction pump motor rather than a suction fan motor. There is a large price difference between the two. Another problem is when we expect the building contractor to follow the Kentucky building codes and he doesn’t, causing many problems for the home owner and the radon mitigation contractor.
