​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Real Estate Transactions: Radon Mitigation


Adamski Builders LLC feels bad for the seller's situation when they just found out they have a high radon level.  They have been living in the home and had no idea of the radon levels or may not know what radon is.  This may be the first time the seller and buyer are learning about radon. 

As a result, when it comes time for a radon mitigation system during a real estate transaction, the number one thing I am asked by sellers is, how cheap can you put a mitigation system in for?​ Sellers often look at the lowest cost of the project rather than the quality of work. Sellers do not always keep the buyer’s best interest in mind. Adamski Builders LLC prides itself on quality work, and not cutting corners. Not all radon mitigation system installations are the same. As a buyer, you need to educate yourself what a quality radon mitigation system is. Before being stuck with inadequate mitigation system.  

Buyers can insist that Adamski Builders LLC installs the radon mitigation system in your new home so you can be confident of the work.  And not worry what corners were cut once you have moved into your new home.  Once educated, buyers are more than willing to pay the difference to have work done properly.  Another option is to ask the seller to take some money off the price of the home so that you can have quality radon reduction system installed.

  Why should I choose Adamski Builders LLC to do the radon mitigation work? Adamski Builders LLC is concerned about the quality of the entire project, for current and the future owners. Not just the next owners, but the owners after that.  With the guarantee the radon level is below the acceptable 4.0 picoCuries/liter (pCi/L).  Average post radon measurement test readings are between 0.4 to 0.9 picoCuries/liter (pCi/L). 

  Comment heard from sellers: “I don’t care who installs it, how the system looks, where it’s placed or how noisy it is, I just want the cheapest system and a passing test.” 

  There is no need to get stuck with what the seller was willing to pay for, or with a company that is willing to do it wrong. Less expensive systems are cheaper because of how installers cut corners, and don’t include all the necessary items.  Even though a company may be a licensed radon mitigation provider, does not mean they know what they are doing.  Mitigation systems are not inspected after they are installed.  Meaning the buyer could be stuck with not to code radon system.  

   For home buyers: Contact Adamski Builders LLC, if you want a quality radon mitigation system for your family, placed, quiet system, and energy efficient.  Do you want the company to be there if something goes wrong with your system. Adamski Builders LLC has been in business since 2001. 


Questions to ask: 

  How will the sump cover be airtight and will the sump cover be easy to remove to access or change out sump pump?  Insurance companies recommend replacement of sump pump every 5-7 years.  Adamski Builders prides itself on a clean installation. The ability to easily remove and re-install sump cover. Especially when the sump pump fails, and water is flowing out of sump basin.​​

bolted down cover, removable inspection port access, drain with

trap, and grommet seals for electrical cords and discharge pipe.        Above sump cover installed by others.  White caulk 

                                                                                                                                               was used to seal openings in cover.  Imagine trying

                                                                                                                                                to remove this sump cover then re-installing it.

  Will Pressure Field Extension (PFE) be performed?  PFE is: Testing to determine if there is sufficient vacuum / suction under the entire slab. To help determine / find possible large cracks/voids covered by flooring, and walls items that will reduce operation of mitigation system. Calculate the number of suction pits that may be needed and location. To properly design, determine pipe size, and fan size for mitigation system.

  Will the radon system be noisy?  Most radon systems should not be noisy.   Items that make radon system noisy: Pressure Field Extension was not performed, suction pit is not large enough, over sized radon fan, incorrect vent pipe size, improper installation of vent pipe hangers. 

  Will sealing slab cracks and slab openings be included?  Not sealing items could cause poor suction under slab, resulting in installation of an oversized radon fan, higher electrical bill, and noisy radon system.  Also, higher cooling and heating costs. Additional utility costs can range
from $100.00 to $800.00 or more per year if sealing projects are not completed or

completed, and if mitigation system is not properly designed and installed.
