Sealed Solution: Radon News
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.

|Map of Radon Zones for North Carolina|
|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|
