Electrical Alterations

So today's photo is of a 1970's vintage home in Mission Viejo, CA. The home is tenant occupied and has had electrical wiring, switch, light fixture and or outlet alterations and additions throughout the home.

This particular issue is regarding electrical wiring splices. We'll refer to this configuration as an exposed pig tail splice without proper junction box.

In most areas of the U.S. you may not have exposed 120v or higher wiring in the interior of the home and it would NEVER be acceptable to have an exposed splice as shown in the photo.

Remember, always use licensed contractors when working on your property, pull those permits when required and when in doubt, error on the side of safety.

Call us today - we perform home and commercial inspections throughout California including Laguna Niguel, Dana Point, Irvine, San Clemente, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo and a community near you!
