In this month's home inspection pictures, we are going with an electrical theme. In the first picture we see a meter box for a service lateral (underground electrical service). This can be a real safety issue, especially if there is not a frost sleave on the conduit. Moisture intrusion can also be a big problem here. In the second picture we see an outlet tester with a single light on it, which means it is an open ground outlet. If you have a 3-prong outlet, be sure it is properly grounded. Questions? Contact me!
Being informed and staying informed are vital in the home inspection process. I work hard to be the most qualified home inspector possible. I also work hard to make sure that my home inspection reports are thorough and detailed, but also easy to understand.
As part of this effort to keep you, my client, informed I have provided a portal to the world's largest home inspection glossary below. Simply input the term you want and see the results. Questions? Contact me!
