Good afternoon guys,
I appreciate you taking the time to read my post and offer any advice. Allow me to provide some back drop.
I performed a wind mitigation/4pt today for an out of state customer who is buying a home in Apollo Beach FL.
While inspecting the electric panel I observed single strand aluminum branch wiring. Please see attached photos.
Now I’m pretty sure this is aluminum wiring. Is there any way possible this could be any other wiring type?
The reason I ask is when brought to the attention of the Realtor, who was on site, and the home owner by phone they were shocked. Because the full home inspection they had done prior identified this as copper clad wiring.
Should this indeed be aluminum wiring my next question is how should I proceed with regards to the inspector who was hired to perform the new purchase home inspection?
This , without a doubt, is going to cause the ball to be thrown back in my court. I can see the questions from the Realtor, Homeowner and insurance agent coming now.
I just need some guidance as to how to handle this situation.
