Every member of this organization was an absolute professional! This is the business that I would continue to consult and hire for all my Radon testing and remediation needs! If you're a first-time buyer or landlord and need Radon remediation, Tommy's the guy!
Tommy and his team came highly recommended, and they did not disappoint.
My new house had a radon level above the 4.0 max requirement, so Tommy came out to install the passive pipe fan. Unfortunately, the pipe was disconnected somewhere within the walls between the basement and attic, but long story short, Tommy worked his magic. End result, 0.2 radon level.
In addition to the professionalism and amazing work quality, Tommy is very good in terms of communication, and will guide you through each step of the process.
I would highly recommend Atlantic Radon and Tommy's team.
Atlantic Radon recently installed a radon remediation system at our house. Our radon levels went from 4.5 to .8, so we are very happy with the results. I find the owner, Tom, to be highly knowledgable, professional and honest. Another company wanted to charge more than double to do unnecessary work. Tom took a step by step approach, meaning that if the initial radon remediation did not do the trick, he would then look into doing additional work like sealing the crawlspace. He also didn't try to upsell me on a sump pump, pointing out the reasons why it wasn't necessary at this time. If you go with this company, you can't go wrong!
We had a difficult, double foundation challenge and readings above 6.
Paul designed a creative and cost-effective solution and got our readings to below 1. The team was professional, creative, open to suggestions and truly cared about their work and results. If you have a radon issue, look no further than Atlantic Radon.
