Different factors that influence radon mitigation cost include:
- Materials: You may choose to receive multiple quotes for your radon mitigation system. Some companies may quote you lower pricing because the quality of the materials that they use are inferior. For a mitigation system to last, you want high quality parts.
- Labor: Lower paid or less skilled employees may result in lower quote prices.
- Home: Radon removal systems are designed specifically for your house. Layout and size will both play a role in the pricing of your system. An example of this is a crawl space. A home with a crawl space will add on to the cost of radon mitigation because different materials and amounts are used to create and effective system. The more complicated the system, the more it can cost.
