I was working at a home this week building an access ramp for a wheel chair. Above where we were working I noticed that those silly electricians put the incoming electric wires at a place that would interfere with the rain gutter system…the nerve.
Sorry I was unable to photograph, but the aluminum K gutter was installed in a manner that was actually pushing the ‘service drop’ (hope I got my termonoloy right, I go to Paul’s class at the end of the month) down around it.
- what is a comfortable minimum distance between the gutter and the incoming service.
- how would or should something like this be stated in a report so as not to send flags and flares
- who should yeild here, I suspect the gutter as it is the easiest to move yet in this case it would cause the meter base to have no protection from the water coming off of the roof because of the design of the home.
Thanks for any input
