Handyman electrical work is something I come across on a regular basis. Electrical work can be expensive, so DIY work in this arena makes perfect sense if possible.

During a recent inspection on Lopez Island, I found yet another example of handyman electrical work when I discovered exposed Romex electrical wiring within a covered porch that needed to be sleeved in conduit or otherwise protected from mechanical damage.

Wiring should always be protected from the elements, and properly installed. If you are going to be a handyman, make sure your work is safe.
