Aluminum Wiring – Hidden Hazard!

The burned and scorched outlet you see in this picture looked fine with the cover plate on. The power was even working when we plugged in our tester.

So HOW DID WE FIND THE DAMAGE? We know how to look. Aluminum wiring in a house requires a specific inspection protocol that our Professional Inspectors know exactly how to do, and exactly how to report to you BEFORE YOU BUY!

The truth is: aluminum wiring is fine if it’s been installed and/or repaired properly. Thousands of metroplex homes have it, and are working just fine. If there is aluminum wiring in the house that you want to buy, we’ll let you know its condition, discuss any problems we find, and help you gain the information you need in order to decide regarding your purchase.
