You probably have heard of electrical code violations… This is one of them.

The photo is worth a 1000 words… maybe more. This is an example of how people get shocked or electrocuted; Or how a house burns to the ground.

 

Hints, if wiring is illegal:

  • · If you find any exposed (normally white) wiring, it is likely to be illegal
  • · If you find any electrical fittings that are not secured, it is likely to be illegal
  • · If any wiring looks untidy, twisted, hanging or loose, it is likely to be illegal
  • · If you find a join in electrical wiring not within a junction box, it is likely to be illegal

You can count on the certified and trained home inspectors at Pacific Coast Inspections, Inc. to highly recommend further review by a licensed electrician prior to the close of the contingency period.
