Who wants their infants, children and spouses breathing in from a Radon Resistant construction technique.  Possibly this is still why over 21,000 people in America die each year from Radon Lung Cancer.  Radon Lung Cancer is only second to smoking for causing lung cancer!  I would want a VAPOR BARRIER SYSTEM that blocks 100% of ALL vapors of anykind.

If Radon is the U.S 2nd leading cause of LUNG CANCER who just wants the gas reduced or suppressed.  No!  I want it eliminated!  for my families sake.
We know that building practices/code changes to litigious events that occur with ignored pertinent information.  We at Sealed Solutions feel Radon and Mold are among the 2 most important items concerning the health when dealing with a persons living space that America has.  So we address that and have an affordable and permanent solution to eliminating Radon gas.

The purpose of this map is to assist National, State, and local organizations to target their resources and to implement radon-resistant building codes. This map is not intended to be used to determine if a home in a given zone should be tested for radon. Homes with elevated levels of radon have been found in all three zones. All homes should be tested regardless of geographic location. Learn more
Directory of Builders Using Radon-Resistant New Construction
EPA offers the Directory of Builders as a one-stop service to home buyers who are looking for builders that use radon-resistant construction techniques in new homes. The Directory contains the names of builders using RRNC who have voluntarily registered with EPA. EPA encourages all builders that use the recommended radon-resistant techniques to be listed in the Directory.
