A Winter Wonderland
These customer's were concerned homeowners, worried about the health and safety of their family. These tend to be the bulk of our customer base due to the fact that we offer options that a lot of other companies don't, ie. aesthetic packages, extended warranties, etc.
For this project we had to pull a permit for the city of Bay Village. Which extended the job time a little bit but we appreciate the work they do to make sure that licensed contractors are performing the level of work that they should be.
This house had a basement with a footer down the middle, which complicates airflow movement underneath the slab. Though to our and the homeowner's luck, there was plumbing that went from one side of that footer to the other, which gave our fan a pathway to suck the radon out from that side of the basement. Otherwise we would have had to put a suction point on either side in order to lower the radon levels as low as possible.
During the actual install it was snowing outside, and a couple inches had begun to gather, making the job a little more challenging. We had to make sure that our PVC glue and primer were kept inside as well as our caulk to ensure it would work correctly. Otherwise it gets very thick and almost unusable. Though besides that, the job was very quick and clean, we went straight up and out in the basement. Luckily there was also an outlet right next to our system that we were able to hardwire into. On the exterior section, it was a similar story, we went right up and around the gutter line. The fan was able to be placed on the side of the house where it wasn't easily seen, making the homeowner very happy with the install!
