I just want to thank you guys for the great advice I received to a question I had about my first home inspection earlier this month.
I have a couple of questions about a 1965 Split Level home I inspected yesterday.
The brick veneer has cracks above the window. My concern is the crack that has split the brick its self instead of through the mortar. This side of the house is on a slab and the other half is a crawl. How would you guys call this out in your report?
My other question has to do with the electrical panel. This is a pic of the panel in the wash room and you can see where the conductors have been cut at the bottom. I’m not sure if these wires are live but this has to be a safety hazzard doesn’t it? This is suppose to be the main panel but there is no main shut-off. I say this because there is a panel outside that is mainly for the a/c and it says “subpanel” on it. This has a main shut-off switch with it. It also shows a 200 on the shut-off so would I be correct to say that this home has a 200 amp capacity?
My last qustion again has to do with the panel (see picture). Someone used a piece of copper wire for a handleon the breaker. Is this a concern and should I write it up? I’m thinking of having a licensed and qualified electrician inspect. I really don’t like those exposed condutors.
Thank you guys so much for any advice you can provide.
