Kitchen sink light

This is a listing photo for tomorrow’s inspection. I have initial concerns about this light, but wanted other’s thoughts.

Back splash doesn’t match the counter top. Write hard. :grinning:

What’s your concern? No lens, glass bulbs? Clearance?

The light fixture is nickel finish and the faucet is chrome.

Logic dictates that this would be similar to a luminary above a shower…damp location; in reach while soaking hands in Palmolive.

You need to get out more.

That would not make my report.

They tightened the screws on the switch plate covers too tight. :slightly_smiling_face:

If this were a damp location then the switches and receptacles would require damp location covers.
Just for the record are those LED or actual incandescent lamps?

Are inspectors actually reporting on relevant defects anymore? JFC.

Those “unbreakable” vinyl cover plates just keep bending and warping with every turn of the screw.

If this works, I’m satisfied. I just hope the button does not pop out onto the counter top. :smiley:

No air gap for the dishwasher.
Lights will shine into eyes of anyone using the sink.

Like the lights shine down on a exhaust hood over a range. You folks out west sure are the sensitive type.

I’ll bet there’s a switch to turn the scary light off. Maybe the owner can install bulbs that better set the mood while washing dishes.

The OP’s challenge was apparently to find something to complain about, from a generic Realty glam shot.

I don’t expect a home inspector charging $200 for an inspection is going to find anything more important than glaring lights over a sink.

NEC 410.4(A) discusses damp and wet locations.
NEC 410.4 (D) discusses pendant fixture over a bathtub.
Those are the only references that I know of.

Those are some pretty cool fixtures, hopefully they installed LED bulbs. :bulb:

Seriously funny shit here. I admit, I’m still learning. But I’d rather look like an idiot to you all than my clients. Thanks for the responses.

There has been a big influx of inexperienced and poorly qualified inspectors in recent years. What you are seeing is the result of there being so many unqualified people in the business who shouldn’t be.

I agree with you George.
