Maximize Deck Space - Forget Common Sense!

By
Home Inspector with EKAN Home Inspection CPBC #69177

Here's an example where a seller has maximized their deck space and forgotten all about safety. In this case, we have a deck on the upper floor which is almost at the height of the overhead electrical service wires. When it gets wet (and believe me that on the west wet coast, in our rainforest environment, we get a lot of wet), electricity is on the skin of the conductors because of micro-cracks in the insulation and if someone were to touch the wires then they would be stung, possibly with fatal results!

Eugene Kanciar Great 'catch' for your clients. With this shocking discovery, did the buyers still buy this home?
