Radon gas is colorless, odorless and, in high enough quantities, potentially deadly.
The radioactive gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, trailing only smoking.
It is also quite prevalent in our area. The average indoor radon level in Nebraska is 5.0 pCi/L, almost four times the national average. In Iowa, that jumps to 8.5, about 6.5 times the national average. Given that radon mitigation is suggested for anything at or above 4.0 pCi/L, that means that even the average Iowa and Nebraska home has too much radon.
At Jerry's, we offer both radon testing and mitigation. If mitigation is called for, we implement a system that vents the gas, which enters from within the soil, out into the open air, keeping it from accumulating to unsafe levels in places such as your basement.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation
If you have a crawl space foundation, that area beneath your home is usually cramped, dark, and, if it isn't properly maintained, damp.
And excess water, be it flooding or even high levels of humidity, can cause a host of crawl space problems.
The list includes mold, wood rot, pest infestations, and a musty odor traveling up into your home.
Our crawl space repair services are two-fold. First, we will repair any damage to the crawl space, whether your beams need additional support piers or if wood rot has made it necessary to replace the beams or floor joists altogether, Jerry's can do the job.
We can also prevent moisture problems from happening again through crawl space encapsulation.
This process uses a tear-resistant vapor barrier applied to the walls and floor that, along with other sealing methods, can prevent moisture from entering the crawl space from the ground.

Egress Window Installation
The only entrance, or exit, to most basements is from a single stairwell. This can be a problem in the case of an emergency such as a fire.
An egress window gives an exit directly to the outside from the basement that is accessible and easy to climb out of.
There is a reason why they are often mandatory for each of a home's bedrooms.
For most bedrooms, the normal windows serve as egress windows. It is when you get down to the basement that it gets tricky.
We will dig out a window well in the area in which the window will be installed. Once installed, the lined window well will provide an exit point from the basement in case of emergency. As an added benefit, it will also let in more natural light.
