Electrical Code Violations

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) makes the standards for which all codes and laws regarding electrical wiring and has them compiled in a book, the National Electrical Code (NEC,) that is nearly 1500 pages. Due to the dangers associated with electrical work, in most areas it can only be carried out by licensed electricians, property owners are required to have permits to complete commercial and home improvement projects, and inspections performed by licensed electrical inspectors may be required.

Electrical code violations can cause you all sorts of grief, not to mention cost you money.

If an inspection uncovers any electrical code violations the property owner must have them repaired and may incur fines. Having construction done is nerve-wracking enough without having the inspector cite you for electrical code violations you never dreamt existed.
