If the guy had a license, he must have been drunk when he did this job. The photos are just a small subset of the defects I found.
He also “approved” and K&T wiring in the attic, telling the homeowner, “a ground isn’t required for lights.” He left it in place although it was covered by insulation.
I summed up the electrical section of my report with this statement:
“The quality and condition of the electrical work that was recently performed in this house is among the worst we have ever encountered. It is difficult for us to imagine that this work was performed by a licensed electrician. We therefore recommend that a competent and licensed electrician perform a review of the entire house and make repairs as deemed necessary.”
