Radon is a dangerous, radioactive gas that can seep into your home through your foundation. Recognized as the second largest cause of lung cancer in the United States, this substance is scary stuff.
When you purchase a new home, radon testing is frequently included in a home inspection. If your home has not been tested for radon in recent years, you might want to consider having a test performed, especially if you are now occupying a lower part of your home such as the basement. Weatherseal is a certified radon test and mitigation company.
Customized Radon Mitigation Services
Like our other services, we have no one-size-fits-all approach to radon mitigation. We strive to find the lowest-impact method to keep radon out of your home. Sometimes, we can resolve the issue by properly sealing air gaps in your foundation or building envelope.
Often, radon requires a ventilation system. We can install an energy regulation ventilator to help control airflow and keep radon out of your home. We also can install below-slab piping that works in cooperation with your home systems to provide cleaner, safer indoor air.
“James, Lesley, Michael:
Your radon remediation was effective.
Post-mitigation radon tests came back well below the maximum safe threshold of 4.0 pCi/L, with levels indicating little short-term risk:
0.6 pCi/L (finished part of basement)
1.3 pCi/L (unfinished part of basement)
This is a big improvement over the pre-mitigation numbers, which were way over the maximum safe threshold:
7.6 and 9.8 pCi/L (finished part of basement)
16.6 and 19.1 pCi/L (unfinished part of basement)
The Cost of Radon Mitigation
We work with you to make the process as cost-effective as possible. We frequently perform radon ventilation work in conjunction with crawlspace encapsulation. When you decide to tighten up your home to improve energy performance and reduce moisture, it is important to monitor all aspects of indoor air quality.
Making Your Home A Safe Place To Live
As always, we concern ourselves with your whole home. At Weatherseal, we understand the long-term effects of our process, and work to reduce risk and improve benefits for homeowners. Our mindful approach to indoor air quality and energy efficiency offers our customers reliability and value unmatched by other contractors in our field.

Well, I am so grateful to Weatherseal who insulated my reconstructed 1840 house and sealed my crawl space. It was -9 last night here in Bumpass...and we lost power for two hours. All my pipes are still unfrozen this morning and the house is nice and snug.
