Unbelievable Day

Last Wednesday was an Unbelievable Day. I was asked to go look at a Radon system that was just recently installed. The new owner did not think it looked right. So, I went to take a look. Wow! I could not believe what I saw. This system was installed by a local, “certified” company. They broke about 6 or 7 codes and Radon venting standards. The biggest thing is that the Radon fan was in the basement. When you get certified, this is about the 1st thing you learn not to do. Among other things they did not install fire collars on the pipe in the garage, they used an electrical splitter on the single outlet for the sump pump to also plug in the fan. The flashing was not installed properly. The company then told the customer that it was  a “moisture” system, so they could put the fan where ever they wanted. (even though this was for Realty and the home had tested high for Radon) Best price? Yeah, they got what they paid for. Now the system has to be completely redone. What a great service that company is doing to the public, and they are certified. Wow, what an unbelievable day.

Did you really check out that Radon company?

Two things happened within the last week. The first was an angry customer that called me complaining about the initial price quoted, and the final bill that he received.  Turns out he was calling the wrong Radon company. He explained how he was quoted a very low price, but by the time they installed the system, and upgraded his guarantee that his bill was much higher. He got his companies mixed up because we had quoted him a system also. Our final quote was $750. The other Radon company originally quoted $540, but by the time they were done the price was $900! If he had gone with us he would have had what he wanted with no price changes. Please compare quotes item per item, then make your decision.

The second thing that happened was we had to remove an improperly installed system in Green Bay. Have you seen the cable show Holmes on Homes? Well, we consider ourselves the Radon Gurus of our area. We have fixed and replaced many Radon systems over the years. What really irks me is a certified Radon company out of Green Bay installed the system we replaced. The customer paid us $700 to remove the existing system and install a new one, and patch their roof. We were able to reuse two of the holes cut, but everything else had to be changed. This customer paid dearly in the long run. Why was the other company hired? The person seemed like a nice guy and the price was a little lower. Check out the company you are going to hire, no matter what the work might be. Get references, check out their shop/business, and go see their work. Make sure they are following local laws and codes. Does their work vehicle even say who they are? Hiring a company that does anything on the side is a big risk.
