From Customer “can you match another companies price?”

The answer is, depends. When we give a quote  the price includes installing all the necessary components of a Radon system. One of the biggest things I see being left off Radon systems is Fire Collars. When routing a pipe through a fire wall, such as the wall between the home and garage that is attached you need to install a fire barrier material, wrapped in a metal sleeve. (this could save your home if there were a fire in the garage)  Fire caulk will not collapse a 3″ PVC pipe. So, on a Radon system fire caulk will not be sufficient. If the garage has a finished drywall ceiling, that also may be a firewall, so it too may need a fire collar. The biggest thing that companies are doing out there (not just for Radon) is installing electrical work, without a licensed electrician. It is illegal to install, for hire, any electrical work if you are not licensed. Most municipalities also require a permit, which needs to be acquired by the electrical company. Not using an electrician or getting a permit can save a company $100 to $150 on the cost of installing the system, so they will show a lower cost. Anyone who says you don’t need an electrician for a simple outlet is not being truthful, and is taking a risk if they get caught in paying hundreds of dollars in fines. We will match anyone’s price, but their proposal/system needs to match ours. A wise man once said, “getting the cheapest job done is like getting the cheapest set of tires put on your car. They may be round & black, but you won’t like them once you go down the road.”

You Might Think You’re Saving Money on a Cheap Radon System, But…

Is saving $25-$50 dollars really worth it? Looking for a cheap Radon system?

Your looking for a Radon system to be installed. So, you need to hire a Radon company to do that. If you are selling you’re probably looking for the least expensive option. You check around and find a company that is offering a really cheap price. You think you will be saving money, but may not be. Not all Radon mitigation services are created equal – and saving a few dollars on your system installation may not be worth it. A poorly installed Radon system can be a far greater risk to your health than no system at all. That’s because a poorly installed Radon system can actually increase your Radon exposure! Click here for some examples of bad Radon system installations. The last thing you want to happen is to have the buyer not approve where the system is located or how it was installed. Maybe it doesn’t meet standards and you have to have it fixed.

If any company, regardless of whether or not they’re certified to install Radon systems, provides a written proposal that matches our warranty, Radon level guarantee, routes the system the same way, uses fire collars, and provides proof of workers comp and liability insurance, we’ll match their price. We back up our statement of “the best job at the best price” not just by saying it, but by putting it here, in writing. We can provide the lowest price because of the number of systems we install. Quality of work will not and has never been compromised.
