Every home in Wisconsin should be tested for Radon. Get the information you need to mitigate radon exposure in Northeast Wisconsin. These posts will help you save money on your radon system installation.

  • Does the system get routed to the outside, or through an attached garage and roof?
  • Do we have to install a new sump pump?  Will one suction point do the job or are two needed?

Most Radon mitigation systems cost $800 – $1400 depending on where you are located and what we have to do to get the system installed properly. To be honest, some system have cost more. But those are the exceptions not the norm.

I can get someone Cheaper to do the same job

Today I received a call from an Realty agent. He said the buyers had requested our company by name. I said, “great, that’s what keeps us in business.” He then said if it were up to him he would have someone else do it because he knows he could have it done cheaper. I agreed…
