Who Needs That Electrical Box

In The Ceiling?

 

 

While we may not always understand why some things are required when building a home, we can't just change things without doing them right. The homeowners asked me to replace their track lighting in the living room and I was happy to do so. I assumed that things would have been wired correctly up to the light. I was wrong.

 

There were two light fixtures that had been filled with expanding foam instead of an electrical box that is required. Since the fixture mounded to the ceiling along the track, the missing electrical box was not noticed until it was removed.

 

A contractor can correct this electrical problem in Sacramento, and you can probably find one in a neighborhood near you!

Good morning Tom,

Some will do anything to save a nickle or cut corners costing someone else time and money.

Make yourself a great day.

Tom, I'm surprised that no one has wrritten a book about the 101 uses for expanding foam. Sadly, this homeowner's idea did not make the cut.

Tom, Nice. Expanding foam is taking a very rightful place next to duct tape.

Pretty amazing, what some people do rather than take care of things correctly.
