Radon Testing

Whether you’re moving into a new home or concerned about the safety of your current home – radon testing is a must. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas that enters your home through small cracks in your foundation or through air gaps over a crawlspace. All homes have Radon Gas in them, but without Radon Testing you don’t know if the levels in your home are critical and  dangerous to your family.

Gateway Home Inspection uses the newest technology in radon testing. We will set up our testing equipment for a minimum of 48 hours. Once the test is complete, we will provide you with an easy to read report. If our testing proves that there is elevated radon levels, we will recommend a certified radon remediation contractor for you.  The US Surgeon General recommends that you have your home tested every 2 years.


Day of Inspection

Should I walk around the house with you?

Absolutely. I’m happy to explain everything I’m looking at. There will be times where I need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.

Can my agent be there too?

Yes! Agents are encouraged to be there and be engaged so they can know what they’re writing up in your Repair Request Addendum.

The Report

What should I be looking for?

My reports have lots of images to help you recall what you’re looking at. I break down my reports into areas that are safety hazards and other recommended items to fix/ask for.

The summary will be the most helpful area of the report, right at the top.

Will there be recommendations on who to call?

With each defect I include which type of contractor you will need to search for to get quotes.


Can I call you if I have questions after I get the report?

Absolutely. This is one of my favorite parts. Call, text or email.


Can you give me some preferred contractors to call?

I have a few contractors that I’ve worked with in the past that I can recommend. I still recommend you contact at least 3 in each area for quotes and do your own research.
