Electrical Guide

Code violation corrections
As you know, any major electrical work must meet local code, in order to pass inspection. This applies for both new construction, and re-wiring of an older home.
Electrical inspections
Electrical projects may be inspected at two different phases: the first visit must take place when work is done, but before walls are insulated or closed.
National and local electrical code
The standards that govern electrical materials and installation are based on the national electrical code, or N-E-C. The N-E-C is not a law, but does set voluntary nationwide standards in regards to safe procedure.
What permits are needed?
Depending on the extent of your project, you'll need to file for certain permits with the building inspector's office. An electrical permit is required for any substantial electrical work; if you're adding on to the home, a building permit will be needed as well.
