Need some advice?

If you'd like some help please fill the form out below. Yes, I know it's a bit long. All the items are necessary to help me to understand your radon problem. The more detail you can provide the better; and I always appreciate your diagrams and photos as this speeds the process along.

You'll receive my e-mail address after I reply back, if you have anything to send me.


I do not charge for my consulting. But my phone bill and time spent answering e-mails adds up. If you end up saving a few bucks, we do accept donations to help keep this site moving along....

Thanks for your support!

If you just have a quick question, my contact page forgoes all the detail required below.

I will be sending some PDFs to get you started but the bulk of my help comes in the form of e-mails and phone calls.

I do not charge for my consultations. So the only way that I get paid is when you purchase the materials from my store, which you'll find very competitively priced and great shipping terms too.

I'm sure that my help will save you many hundreds of dollars and possibly a lot of head scratching and banging too. But I have to start justifying all the time I spend answering e-mails everyday to the boss, my lonesome wife!! So I do ask for voluntary donations for my phone bills and time spent typing e-mails. Don't feel obligated now, just remember this later if this turns into a long relationship :-) You will not hurt my feelings even if it's just a few bucks...

Thanks for helping me keep this site up and growing.
