Radon Mitigation

Christopher Robinson, owner of Daggett Builders, Inc attended a Radon Class last summer in preparation for the new Building Codes.   

Although radon mitigation will increase the cost of new construction, there are several advantages to the homeowner.  First of all, as new homes become tighter, it is more important than ever to expel radon gases.  Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer. One in three homes in Maine have elevated concentrations of radon gases.  Radon is basically radio active. It is like getting a very low dose of x-rays on a regular basis.  Another advantage is that the system removes moisture underneath the basement slab.  It works much better than a dehumidifier and for a fraction of the cost. You can also get up to 15 Energy Star Points for having a radon mitigation system.
