Building a new home in 2010 or thereafter?  Here's a heads up for you!

Several American residents, moving to Canada, have demanded a RADON test as a condition of sale.  As well, the recent finding of unacceptable radon levels at a school site in Ottawa has led to the possibility of a new requirement being added to our local Agreement of Purchase and Sale.  My feeling is that it is much easier and therefore, less expensive, to ask your builder to include the National Building Code of Canada's SOIL GAS CONTROL REQUIREMENTS in your design and construction process.  If I can provide any further information to you, don't hesitate to e-mail me at or

All the best for a great weekend.
