PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: After our round-table discussion, we welcome Matt Hendrick, an educator and builder with radon testing and mitigation expertise in residential and commercial construction, including new and remodels. As a home inspector doing radon testing and inspecting, communication with your clients and all parties involved is key to successful testing. Radon is still the # 1 environmental hazard in the home, and yet many homeowners are still unaware of its dangers and the steps needed to protect their families. Often times as the radon professional, your guidance is critical on what steps to take before, during and after the test is completed. We will discuss risk communication of Radon, the proper protocols for testing and the right recommendations based on the updated and ever evolving standards, plus a look at the current status of the industry and where we are headed. Next, we welcome Master Plumbers Tim and Matt Sullivan of Plumbing Solutions in Dedham, MA who will discuss common plumbing materials and practices seen in the older homes of Massachusetts that are surprisingly not code compliant. Many outdoor showers, sump pumps that drain into the sewer, and mechanical plumbing vents can be commonly seen in this area and are acceptable in most other states of the country but not in Massachusetts!
