What we look for...
Type of Wiring
It is important to know the type of wiring because some older types of wiring have safety limitations, such as lack of ground, or insufficient power for modern appliances.
We'll help you navigate the information we find.
Inside of a breaker panel. The wiring looks modern and updated form the outside, but from the inside the panel appears to be overloaded. These components may be subjected to more current than they are designed for.
Location of Emergency Shutoff
We'll locate your breaker and shutoffs, which are important in the even of a power failure, for maintenance, and even in emergencies.
Main Breaker Panel. It is very important for any homeowner to know the location of this shutoff in case of emergency or breaker event.
Repairs & Modifications
Repairs are inevitable, but how they're carried out is important. Improper repairs can be cause for a closer look, while quality upgrades can bring peace of mind.
We'll help to show you the difference.

Sometimes things just aren't installed correctly, or are not up to modern standards. We can help you to understand the state of the property, and prepare you with the info to make a judgement on further actions.
Electrical panel overloaded. All the spaces were used, so multiple wires used on each slot. These connections are unreliable at best, and dangerious at worst.
Nothing lasts forever, and that's okay. We are trained to spot signs of deterioration and in common causes, ensuring we know where to look and how to interpret what we see.
