Festa Radon Technologies Mitigation
We don't believe in quoting prices over the phone!
Festa Radon Technologies Co. believes 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.
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 DEP 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.
Our warranty is 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 a year long test If a test does return higher then 4.0 pCi/l, 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.
Festa Radon Technologies 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). 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!
Cosmetic & Aesthetics
Radon systems are not designed to beautify a home, but Festa Radon Technologies gives every consideration of outside appearance of the home, as well as the future utilization of space.
We are properly insured for radon mitigation - $2,000,000. Surprisingly, most mitigators are not (some falsify their insurance certificates to state coverage for radon work, when it really is only general contractor's insurance!). Without proper insurance, a claim will not be paid.
Post Mitigation Follow Up Testing
Although we are state licensed to perform testing, we do not re-test our own work. This would be a conflict of interests, and the EPA and DEP strongly discourages mitigators from re-testing their own work.
We provide a free follow-up test kit. The results are processed quickly, but more importantly, this ensures no falsification of the test results.
Continuous Monitor Testing
Festa Radon Technologies Co. is licensed by the DEP to perform radon testing. We follow EPA and DEP regulations in performing tests. We use continuous monitor test because they are:
Accurate- taking radon reading every hour
Quick- with results usually faxed from the independent laboratory within one hour
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.
