If you’re building a home or are in the home construction business and want to be at the top of your game against radon, it’s easier and more cost-effective than you might think. Radon-resistant systems are being added to homes at minimal cost and they successfully reduce the risk of elevated radon levels.

Radon-resistant techniques have grown in popularity since the 1990s and for good reason. These building techniques not only help with radon, but they also help prevent moisture buildup that may lead to other problems.  A healthier indoor living environment is important and should always be a top priority in any construction project.

The radon-resistant building standards are easy to follow and with the right guidance, you (or your contractor) can build your new home with radon-reducing features.
