Inspected home built in 1982 with additions added on over the years. The service mask is through the roof and the service wires are not the proper height above the roof line. I am looking for comments to place in the report. This is what I have and wanted opinions.
The service wires do not have adequate clearance above the roof. In general, overhead service conductors must maintain a minimum vertical clearance of 8 feet above the surface of a roof for a minimum distance of 3 feet in all directions from the edge of the roof. If the slope of the roof exceeds 4 inches for every 12 inches, 120/208V or 120/240V conductor clearances can be reduced to 3 feet over the roof. If the service mast is used in a through-the-roof application, 120/208V or 120/240V conductor clearances can be reduced to 18 inches over the overhang portion of the roof. There must not be more than 6 feet of service-drop conductors over the overhang portion of the roof and the service mast can’t be located more than 4 feet from the edge of the roof overhang measured horizontally. It is recommended that you consult with a licensed electrician.[
