The test and follow up went very well. The tech explained the results and is forwarding me documentation.

Before the system was installed, the Radon levels in the basement were almost 8 PCi/L when I did a short term test. The electronic monitor I have was also showing levels varying from 10 pCi/L to almost 20 pCi/L from day to day. The Radon system installation went well and was done in a day. Now that the new system is installed, the Radon is down to below 2 pCi/L in my basement, per the electronic monitor I have. The system is also quiet and the installation looks clean on the inside and the outside of the house. I'm pleased.

While preparing for a crawl space encapsulation project, it occurred to me to test for radon. The test came back 2.0 pCi/L, which is a level at which the EPA recommends retesting every 2 years. I was concerned the encapsulation could increase the radon level, so I found Dan online and called for his opinion. He advised that it probably would be good to put in the system before the liner goes down and that the radon could increase with the encapsulation (which will close off the vents that use to bring fresh air into the crawl space). Dan was very responsive on the phone both in terms of reassuring me that this wouldn't be too bad to add on and in getting the estimate and work scheduled as quickly as possible to avoid holding up my encapsulation project. His business partner Ryan came out within a day or two to provide an estimate, and then they returned within a week to complete the work. The system is nicely done at an inconspicuous part of the house. Since they were only installing the pipes and fan, they offered to return after the encapsulation is done to ensure the fan is drawing well under the liner (which would normally be part of a radon system anyway). They showed me how to check the pressure and clearly marked the exterior switch as part of a radon system that needs to remain on 24 hours a day. Also, they used a licensed electrician to install the fan, and their price still came in below the other price I received. All-around professional yet laid-back guys who know their stuff and do good work. As an engineer I really appreciated their overall vibe.

During home inspection on the house we are selling, radon tested above acceptable level. Commonwealth provided an estimate of work to be done and cost. They retested, determined it needed mitigation, drilled a neat hole in basement floor, installed pipe that led to outside, fan, arranged for electrician, retested, and provided report - levels very good.

They showed up early to our appointment and were very professional. They went onto the roof and inspected every crevice of the house. Not only were they thorough, but they walked us through the whole inspection and explained everything along the way in a way that was easy to understand for someone not familiar with the trade. We also received a detailed report of every problem encountered as well as everything that had no signs of damage. It was definitely reassuring to see that they paid close attention to both and was able to convey these findings in a report that was color coded for serious problems to simple fixes. It really helped prioritize what we needed to further negotiations on the purchase of our first home. Not only was the report complete with rough estimates of what it may cost to fix, but it included pictures and detailed explanations of the damage and what could happen if it was left unchecked. The best part about the inspection was that we received this detailed report within a few hours of them leaving. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a home inspection and will definitely use them for any and all future home inspections I will need moving forward in my home buying process.

Wally was great, he worked directly with our Realtor to get into the house to setup the detectors, and then came to collect them during the home inspection several days later. Very nice and courteous guy, even took his shoes off at the front door. Best part of all their equipment was pretty high tech, while he was still there in the house we received the report via e-mail. Came up negative which was great and obviously did not try to sell us anything further.

Mr. Dorsey was punctual, knowledgeable and professional. He answered all my questions. On the second visit, after reviewing the readings from the meter, he indicated that he couldn't justify follow-up testing (at additional cost) by him.

When it came time to purchase a new home I turned to Angie?s List to find an inspector. I reviewed several different highly rated inspectors and found items that didn?t sit well. Some of them had sample reports that were simple checkbox affairs without any details. A few of them were using boilerplate websites with sections that still had ?insert comment here? in a live page. A House On A Rock seemed to have it all together. Their sample report was detailed and included extensive comments. There was an active blog section with comments from the owner. Their website was really showed attention to detail. My wife is an animal lover. Animals of all shapes, textures, and color. When I showed her their write up on bat mitigation that went into detail about how this was the wrong season due to baby bats being born it caught her attention. The front page of the website shows Juan and his family. When I read into their website there was an entire section about how he encouraged his customers to bring their entire family to the inspection. Here?s where he cinched the deal. Juan does a ?monster inspection?. My wife and I built our current home 12 years ago and brought our daughter into our home 4 years ago. This is the only home she has known. The prospect of moving to a different home simply scares her. Juan took a few minutes to talk to my daughter and explain how he looked for monsters. When she mentioned ?good? monsters like those from Monster?s Inc. he didn?t miss a beat. He assured her he had checked her room, the bathroom, the closest and guarantees that there are no bad monsters to be found. He took a few minutes to talk to a 4 year old girl about what could be her new home. At the end he gave her a certificate certifying her new home ?monster free? and a small stuffed monster. The man knows how to win over a little girl. Sold. Now back to the reality of the inspection. He brought a team that impressed my realtor even though I didn?t go with my realtors inspectors. The guys were there early and up on the high roof before I got there a few minutes before our appointment. They spent a long time going over the house. The checked every nook and cranny. They sent a drone up to take video and pictures of the chimney. They inspected every inch of the house. My wife and I are skeptical engineers by trade. Juan and his team blew us away. They covered every inch of the property and sent us a detailed report that covered every possible issue. After reading his website I even asked for a radon check. I showed back up 3 days later when they picked up the meter. I had a detailed radon report in hand not 2 hours after they left. It showed radon levels well above what the EPA recommends for mitigation. His report armed me with the information I needed to negotiate the deal and not walk into a surprise after the purchase was closed. I hope to not have to buy another home any time soon, but if I do I will be calling A House on a Rock. They are good, attentive, and focused on little things that make life easier when buying a home.

CEA was excellent! From initially speaking with Fred Mayes and working with Sam Hull, the whole process was very smooth. They put my mind at ease and were meticulous in planning and executing the install. My system had to navigate four finished floors from the basement to the roof and they did an excellent job installing it and minimizing the obtrusiveness of the vent pipe. In the end they clearly demonstrated that the system was working and effectively solve three issues (Radon, excessive humidity and ejection well odor). Nice work guys! Thanks!!

Recent Review: The structural/electrical/plumbing inspector was fantastic. He spent over 4 hours going through every inch of the home, provided immediate in-person feedback showing significant issues, and followed up <48 hours later (on a holiday weekend) with a 133-page report with pictures, thermal scans, etc. On a lesser note, the radon inspector showed for a few minutes during the structural inspection and set-up measurements in the basement. The report was issued quickly but I found out later that the radon inspector had not taken into consideration the attached (inaccessible) crawlspace that made up 25% of the lower structure. I found out from a radon remediation contractor that the state code required the radon inspector to measure levels on the 1st floor above the crawlspace in cases where the substructure could not be accessed. Overall, the huge amount of time the structural inspector put into the property was worth the A rating. Just watch the radon inspection if you have a strange basement set-up like the house I am purchasing.

Recent Review: Adams Donald Did a thorough job. Was very patient, polite and freindly. Answered all questions, explained things in details and performed a detailed inspection to come up with a long list of issues that required attention and action. He also brought the moisture meters to detect any leakages. We are fully satisfied with his work and would gladly hire him again and recommend him to others interested. Raj

Recent Review: Very well. Burgess got to the property quickly and provided us with an accurate reading and breakdown of of the numbers. They were also available by phone and e-mail afterwards for follow-up questions. Burgess even emailed us a list of recommended radon mitigators to alleviate the problem. Would definitely recommend.
