Clayton NC Home Inspection - electrical problem

By
Home Inspector with Clear Choice Home Inspections, Inc

During our latest Clayton NC Home Inspection, we inspected a brand new 3,300 sq ft house and found a wire in the main electrical panel that was overfused.  An innocent mistake, but I am glad we caught it as the breaker would not trip until the circuit saw at least 20 amps (the breaker size) and the wire was only rated for 15.  It is nearly impossible to build a perfect house and that is why a home inspection in Clayton NC (and all other areas) is so important.  A few of the other items our home inspector noted: a smoke detector that was not electrically tied to the others, a broken shingle, caulk missing in a channel between the tub and shower (over time water will wet the drywall and wood behind that - see it frequently on older houses) and an un-supported drain pipe in the crawl space.

This is shocking.  I am glad you have this outlet (active rain) to plug into.  LOL
