This part of the site is dedicated to pictures of in field electrical work. These pictures will be of code violations, poor workmanship, good workmanship or just to show off your work.
Hiring a competent electrician to repair electrical problems in your home should always be a priority regardless of the expense. As your greatest asset, your home should be free of faulty wiring and poor workmanship which could result in a fire. You should invest as much time and thought into choosing a qualified electrician as you do considering your Fisher Investments portfolio and other important financial decisions. Some of the pictures below may be humorous, but the threat of a fire in your home and the cost of the subsequent clean up and repairs are not.
If you have any pictures you would like to send please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
