We were closing on a house in a month, and wanted the details on the house the appraisal wouldn't provide, and
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
did just that! When we got there, he dug right into the problems he noticed and caught some broken shingles on the roof which we brought to the seller's notice, buildup on faucets, and a very small water leak in the closet and garage. He walked through the house with us and as first home buyers, he explained to my wife and I what he was looking for, and gave us tips on home ownership. He also explained anything we asked about, and was very knowledgeable about anything I could ask. The level of detail on the inspection was outstanding and I was thoroughly impressed. He gave us detailed homeowner tips to keep the house in good condition. This is definitely someone I will trust when buying a house again and would recommend to any potential homeowner. Thanks for your expertise and professionalism!

He showed up early to our appointment and was already checking out the exterior of the property.

was really friendly and easy to work with. He told us everything he saw on the premises and spent a good hour and a half going through every nook and cranny with us. He offered sound advice and was extremely professional. We really enjoyed our inspection with

I emailed
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
in mid-August and told them about the air readings in my basement. They quoted me a price via email that was competitive with others I received. They proposed a date about 3 weeks out, which was fine. I'm sure they can come faster when a purchase transaction is hanging in the balance, but I wasn't in that situation.

showed up on time, ready to work. We discussed the location for the system that I thought was best, and he suggested an even better one that I had not considered.
He installed the system, and just in time, his licensed electrician showed up to do the wiring. Reilable guarantees their work, but I haven't yet run the post-installation test to confirm the numbers are good.

showed up on time and immediately got to work. They were quick, efficient, and concerned with minimizing dust. They picked a good spot for the PVC pipes near the furnace and out of our way. They safely installed the vent pipe up the side of the house away from windows all the way to the roof line. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking to have a system installed. After they were finished,

went over the system with me, explained about the post installation test and explained he would be back to pick up the results. He also explained the vacuum level gauge and discussed maintenance, future tests, and the warranty. They were so easy to work with from scheduling through installation.

Our radon system had been making a lot of noise over the weekend. We called and left WEC a message. I followed up on Monday morning by calling again.
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
referenced my message and was able to pull up all my system information while we were on the phone, he was able to tell me that the fan would probably need to be replaced and said he could be out that afternoon to fix it. We couldn't get back to the house to leave him a check so he said it was fine for us to mail it. Overall, I was really impressed with how quickly we were able to get this handled for what seemed like a pretty fair price. My only complaint would be that when we asked about how we could prevent the fan from needing to be replaced prematurely in the future, he did not really have an answer for us. Other than that, WEC was fast, professional and affordable.

Called
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
on Thursday August 28, 2014 to see what his availability was, for as soon as possible. He heard the urgency in my voice, and even though Saturday Aug 30 was part of a holiday weekend he scheduled the appointment anyway. He showed up at the house we are planning to purchase on time and got quickly to work. He worked by himself for the first 2 & 1/2 hours and then we meet up with him around 11:30 where he then took us on a step by step tour of everything he found. He was extremely professional but had a good sense of humor as well. He pointed out all of the "safety" issues as well as all of the smaller issues that may become major if not addressed. He gave detailed feedback on what he felt the owner should fix before we purchased the house and what things we should deal with ourselves, which was a major help because we are first time home buyers. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. Made us feel confident in the home we were planning to purchase.
His report was emailed to me later that evening with details and pictures of everything he found. The termite inspection and Radon testing were not done till Tuesday due to his partner having the weekend off for the holiday. Both reports were still emailed to me in a timely manner.
Communication was great on all aspects of the inspection process.

showed up on time and it was clear that he was going
to take the time to install the system the right way. He put down a drop cloth over
the carpet, which I appreciate not only because it protects the carpet but
because it shows that he’s paying attention to the details of a job. He walked
me through what he was going to do, and why, and then got to work. He was
careful to perform the install correctly, and afterwards he caulked the holes
he had made and cleaned up nicely.
I learned a lot not only about radon but about house
construction in general from him. His pricing is competitive with other quotes
I received, but what sets him apart is that you’re going to get an experienced
technician who pays attention to the details and performs the job correctly.

Very informative with initial contact by phone. Arrived on time. Completed job in a timely manner (less than estimated). Left a clean and very unobtrusive installation. Original radon was 6.7 before mitigation -- after mitigation 1.0. Two thumbs up to
Ames Radon Mitigation Experts Provider Name Locked
and company -- would highly recommend. Give them a call!

They discovered crawl spaces I didn't even know I had! They sealed the 3 crawl spaces and installed a new fan. They also told me they use a higher grade pvc and other materials than just a "handy man" would. I felt really confident that with their licensing and better quality materials that my family and I are safe.

I went with this company because the person I spoke to on the phone (who was friendly) seemed to explain a more sophisticated method for determining the optimal location for the system then their cheaper competitors, who may just drill a whole in the slab and hope it works. When the installers were on site, I saw really no sophistication in placing the system suction point; fan unit was placed near the AC fan, which they say is common, and a suction point was placed in the slab about 6 feet in from where the vent duct entered the house. Installation was on a ranch style house with a concrete slab crawl space.
Also, they quoted an air draw suction point as a second suction point for an additional $500, which was higher than the prices I was quoted for additional suction points. The air draw suction point was to be a vent pipe run into the inaccessible crawl space underneath a home addition. The installers couldn't really give me any piece of mind that this air draw suction point would work for the radon issue or of the inefficiencies of an air draw type suction point, and I got the impression that they didn’t want to install it anyway. I opted out of this second suction point installation.
All in all, I thought the work done was clean and

; although I would recommend this company again, having gone through this experience, I probably would have called around for a few more quotes because I suspect the end product would have been very similar across the board.
