Mountain State Inspections LLC, DBA: Radon Solutions of WV – We guarantee Radon levels below 4.0 pCi/l
We don’t believe in quoting prices over the phone!
We believe that it is vitally important to see each home to evaluate specific areas of concern. In this way, we are able to design a system that Buyers, Sellers, and Realtors know what to expect prior to the start of the work. If the job is out of our home service area, we will interview the building owner and get as much information as possible and give a range on the cost of mitigation. We then will follow up with an on site inspection before writing the contract.
Choosing a radon mitigation contractor to lower your radon gas levels can be difficult. Different contractors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, methods and pricing. Radon mitigation requires specific technical knowledge and special skills. Mitigation costs vary due to technique, materials, and the extent of the problem. Typically, the cost of radon mitigation is comparable to other common home repairs. Ultimately, a thorough and well-designed system depends heavily on the individual mitigator’s own skills, knowledge and effort. If you honor me by permitting my company to mitigate your home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort. This I promise you!

You would not trust a Plumber, Roofer, or Electrician who gave you a price over the phone without first seeing your house!
Both the EPA and State of OH say if you are given a price over the phone, disregard it! If a contractor gives you a price over the phone, how does he know what conditions exist, what materials are needed, and what system design is best for your house. Look at the pictures of some of these jobs!
5 year no hassle warranty comes standard with every system we install and that the levels are below 4.0 pCi/l, which is transferable for the home. In WV, we follow the American Society for Testing and Materials, ASTM, Standard Practice for Installing Radon Mitigation Systems in Existing Low-Rise Residential Buildings, E2121. For testing, we follow EPA guidelines. In Ohio, under rule 3701-69-07 of the Administrative Code Appendix A and B. For Mitigation, under rule 3701-69-08 of the Administrative Code Appendix A. All of our customers have an option of a limited lifetime warranty which is transferable for the life of the home. We ensure that the radon level is less than 4.0 pCi/l average, based on post mitigation testing. If a test does return higher then 4.0 pCi/l, additional testing may be needed, and/or we return promptly to correct the problem your clients can rest assured that we will respond to every service call in a prompt, professional manner and resolve the problem to their satisfaction. We use a LIMITED COMPONENT / PERFORMANCE WARRANTY, it accompanies all contracts.
We realizes that deadlines are crucial in the Real Estate Industry. We are committed to do everything in our power to help you meet your closing dates.
Everyone wants to get the lowest price on everything-especially disgruntled home sellers who are forced into fixing high radon levels to sell their home. However, a low price means nothing if you don’t get to closing because the buyers look over the mitigation system during the walk-through and are dissatisfied with the way the system looks (or if it isn’t fixed at all!) The least expensive price is very rarely the best value. (nobody asks why a Cadillac isn’t the same price as a Hyundai, does anyone remember the “Yugo” car?) In getting a lower price, you are usually giving something up. In Radon Mitigation, this may mean inferior materials, unattractive appearance, being under-insured, using cheaper labor, or falsifying post mitigation test results to ensure no service calls. Problems on the job may kill a deal. And false re-test results may mean a lawsuit in a few years when today’s buyer decides to sell and finds a house was never really fixed. The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten! Most systems in are area can be installed from $1200 – $2500 and depends of the complexity of the system.
Cosmetic & Aesthetics
Radon Systems are not designed to beautify a home, but we gives every consideration of outside appearance of the home, as well as the future utilization of space. Look at our installations at the top of this page.
Post Mitigation Follow Up Testing
In WV, we do not test our own work. We provide a free follow-up test kit or we hiring the local testing company, and clients have the option of hiring there own testing company. The results are processed quickly, but more importantly, this ensures no falsification of the test results.
In OH, we are required to do follow-up testing; or to hire a licensed tester, clients have the option of hiring there own testing company.
Continuous Monitor and E-PERM Testing
Mountain State Inspections LLC is licensed by the WV radon program and also with ODH to perform Radon testing and mitigation. We follow EPA and State regulations in performing tests and mitigations. We use continuous monitors and E-PERM tests because they are:
Accurate – Our QAQC plans are very detailed and reliable. Ask us to show you!
Quick – with results usually emailed from the laboratory within the same day the test is stopped.
Tamper – resistant – They detect changes in position, temperature, pressure – things which indicate that the monitor was moved or that windows were opened to try to influence the test results.
