We were very impressed with how thorough Chris was during our inspection. Nothing was missed. After the inspection we received a well documented report and Chris took the time to explain in detail on all reported issues. A month later Chris called us to offer his assistance in an insurance issue that we were dealing with. In our opinion Chris went way beyond his duty and we would happily recommend his services.

Hi George, Your recommendation is appreciated. As we discussed the issue your insurance provider is having with your electrical system is most likely a communication issue with your insurance broker. The electrical system within your home is up to date and the changes they are asking for are unreasonable. There appears to be some confusion between the use of multi-strand aluminum wiring and single strand aluminum wiring. Multi-strand aluminum wiring is commonly used today for larger appliances and to power electrical panels, this is perfectly acceptable. Some insurance companies will not underwrite policies on homes with single strand aluminum wiring, used during the mid-1960’s to late-70’s to power outlets and lighting, because of an increased risk of fire. As your home does not use this type of wiring it should not be an issue. Thanks again for taking the time to write and if any further questions arise please contact me. Sincerely, Chris
