Homeowners often get sidetracked when it comes to “to-do” lists, especially in older homes and homes that have not been well-maintained. There is always something to do!
Just when one task seems to be priority No. 1, another one creeps up and takes its place (sometimes after the first job has already started).
Case in point: on a recent assignment in Anacortes, I noted unfinished electrical wiring practices in the bathroom. I also identified handyman extension cord wiring practices at multiple outlets in my report.
When I see these types of issues, I try to convey them in my reports and encourage the client to have the work completed.If you have questions or comments about electrical issues or home inspections in general, tweet me (@AIHomeInspect).
