Thank you for the invitations to connect at this Profile page. Early on, I inadvertently established two Google Plus profiles. In an effort to keep things simple, I only utilize one personal Profile. If you have a second, please reconnect me here: https://plus.google.com/+SteveParton/ or just search for +SteveParton. Thank you!

If you’d like to follow my company’s activity on Google Plus, here is the link. Thanks in advance.

During home inspections we make every effort to open the electrical panel. Here's an example of why - - the kitchen is on the other side of the wall where the panel is mounted. When hanging the bracket for the microwave oven, lag screws were installed. Lucky for the home owner or the appliance installer, they missed service entry cables by an inch or so and the neutral bus bar by the slimmest of margins.

All day I thought about the person driving around town with no clue how lucky they are able to do so. 

When scheduling your home inspection, please ask the inspector if he/she opens electrical panels. It's pretty important!

Thanks +Charles Schiller. +Glenn Fricke, that's a rough approximation of what I said. Had a sick stomach for a while. Pretty wild stuff, huh? I bet you both also have some real head-scratchers in your photo files.

Thanks for checking in.

This home inspector saved lives today.
 
This is a sample why I warn my clients concerning FPE panels. It was so hot it was bubbling .

Well, this is interesting. During a recent home inspection, I was having a look at the roof and made my way over to the chimney, where I saw this. Just a random cluster of nails wired together and sitting loosely. I can't imaging the 4 ounces of combined weight holding down the "squirrel cage". Sometimes it's best to just make a note and move on :)

Need more of this, along with Google+, as my marketing "secret sauce". How about you?
