Our Additional Inspections & Prices
Structural Inspections: $400
Radon Gas Tests: $150.00 ($130.00 if done with complete inspection)
Radon is a naturally occurring, colorless, odorless gas that is a result of the radioactive decay of radium in the soil. According to the EPA, it is the second leading cause of lung cancer, present in about 1 of every 15 homes in the U.S. Our test involves the placement of two (E-perms) electret ion chambers in the house for 2-3 days. It is required that the windows of the home be closed 12 hours prior to and during the testing period. We will analyze the results in our lab and work with you to determine any further steps.
