Radon Resistant New Construction
Are you finally building your dream house or getting that addition to your house you've always wanted? Maybe your project is larger like a school, office building, or multi-family dwelling. Either way, you may find that in order to pass certain inspections during the process, you must have a passive vent pipe installed. This practice is know as Radon Resistant Construction.
Radon resistant construction, or radon resistant new construction (RRNC), entails adding a passive vent pipe that runs from under your slab, (or under the sealed vapor barrier installed in your crawlspace) up a wall cavity and through your roof. This passive pipe allows radon and other soil gases to vent naturally. While in most cases, a passive radon system is not enough to lower a home's radon dramatically, it does make it easier and more affordable to install a fan and make it an active system.
With a growing number of counties adopting codes that require radon resistant new construction (especially in middle Tennessee), you may find yourself seeking out a certified radon professional to get the job done right.
Commercial or residential, The Radon Guys can deliver a smooth experience from installing the sub-slab vent through the building's interior and out the roof, to testing and activating the system if necessary. So give us a call before your next big project and know radon won't be an issue!
