Radon is not an issue on the exterior of the house because it is not in a confined area. I am not looking for a fight just some factual answers.
The whole radon test for homeowners is a big scam. Better tell the miners who spend more countless hours underground that they are more susceptible to radon, etc, than a typical homeowner. I look at radon tests as an unneeded expense, next to some of the other snake oil that is being sold out there.

Dick, I just looked up the whois on this so called website that was listed, and it comes up listed with namecheap as the domain name provider. I do have to love the "About Us" that the site that was linked has. All the OP linked was someone's blog that has been or has not been active since 2007.
