How we got started

Gary started Teton Construction Services in 2000 in Fort Collins, Colorado providing residential and commercial remodeling services and some new construction for select clients. Most homes on the Front Range of Colorado have elevated levels of Radon and in addition to remodeling, Gary also provided measurement , design and mitigation services. When he moved back to Idaho is 2011 he formed Teton Radon Services and has provided radon related services exclusively since that time.
Teton Radon Services is licensed and insured. We service all of southeast Idaho and offer free consultations and free quotes.
Gary is nationally certified through NRPP (National Radon Proficiency Program) for both measurement and mitigation system design and installation. The NRPP is the only nationwide U.S. certifying agency and certification is based on standards established by the EPA and NEHA (National Environmental Health Association). We service all of Central and Eastern/Southeastern Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
We guarantee in writing to reduce the radon levels in your home to less than 4.0 pCi/L and use only the highest quality fans and thick-walled Schedule 40 PVC piping.
An experienced choice
We have over 15 years of experience and pride ourselves on providing the highest quality radon solutions in Idaho. We pay attention to even the smallest details. If you want quality then you want Teton Radon Services.
Gary’s experience in residential remodeling gives him the knowledge and ability to design a system that can, in most circumstances, be hidden within the structure of the home. If necessary, the system can be designed and installed on the exterior of the home in an aesthetically pleasing manner.”
The EPA states that there is no known safe level. If your home measures at 4.0 pCi/l and above, the EPA says you should have a mitigation system installed to reduce the radon level. If you have between 2.0 and 4.0 pCi/L, the EPA says you should still consider a system to reduce the radon level. The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) has adopted the level of 2.7 pCi/L as the action level.
Per EPA standards, the minimum test period is 48 hours and up to 96 hours maximum for a short term test.
