Well I wish I could say that these pictures are not from the same home... However they are.
I know I shouldn't have opened the panel but I did test it before I touched it.
7 Double tapped breakers and 3 Triple tapped breakers.
Sometimes it gets pretty scary / unhealthy to be an Inspector.
In today's age we all work hard... and it seems saving to get ahead is a thing of the past, Something else is waiting inline that needs repaired or replaced , Its something we can always count on. Of course none of us want to spend more than we need to.
As a Professional Home Inspector I get to see these home repair savings on a daily basis and as an Independent inspector I feel the trust that a buyer puts into your hands should be an honor and not a way to make a fast buck. These are normally Hugh investments, Whether it is a $20,000 home or a 2 million dollar home it still means just as much to the buyer. Period!
Home buyers look at a home and see the new roof shingles and hear the roof is only 2 years old and think they are buying a safe / leak free home when in fact the damaged sheathing under it has been repaired with aluminum coil metal and is UN-safe to even walk on. Or the home has a new electrical panel with 60 year old knob and tube wiring still powering the home. 50% of the homes I inspect have open grounds on the wall plugs from being wired incorrectly.
The list could go on and on however the best way to prevent this type of danger is to make sure the contractor has the correct license for that trade and will be purchasing a permit for your repairs. This protects you as a consumer.
If defects are found in your new home most are easily properly repaired from a qualified licensed professional.
I am a retired home builder and remodeling contractor and would never consider offering a repair service to a buyers home I just inspected. I am there to inspect the home not inspect for future work.
