How Not To Fix Loose Outlets

February 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Charlotte home inspector Preston Sandlin was inspecting a home in Weddington NC when he saw several metal bands over the outlets.  The homeowner had put these metal bands over the top of the outlets because they were loose.  This isn’t the way to fix loose outlets.  The outlets should be secured or fastened better to the studs.  Unfortunately it wasn’t secured properly during original construction.  If you would like to find these problems and others that aren’t so visible call Home Inspection Carolina.
