aluminum wiring

this is aluminum wiring, right?
do most inspectors just recommend further evaluation by an electrical professional?

Yes, aluminum wiring. When I see that, I’ll pull a few receptacle and switch plates to see if the connections have been repaired or not.

Also, looks like the sheathing on the second one up is melting.

Yep, AL single strand wiring (and overheating). Also FPE panel…both non-insurable in Florida with most carriers.
