Are you finally building your dream house or getting that addition to your house you've always wanted and wondering how to address a radon issue?

Radon resistant construction (RRC) entails adding a vent pipe that runs from under your slab, (or under the vapor barrier installed in your crawlspace) up a wall cavity and through your roof. This passive pipe allows radon and other soil gases to vent naturally. While in most cases, a passive radon system is not enough to lower a home's radon dramatically, it does make it easier and more affordable to install a fan and make it an active system.

With a growing number of counties adopting codes that require new construction (especially in middle Tennessee) to be radon resistant, you may find yourself seeking out a certified radon professional to get the job done right. Call The Radon Guy and get your radon problems solved.
