Unexpected electrical complications

Sometimes a homeowner may not know the full extent of the work which needs to be done until well after starting the project. In the early rehab stages whether for flipping or rental purposes, sometimes 'unexpected complications' may arise which, although unfortunate at times, is all part of any total reconstruction project. When removing paneling from walls and in removing drop ceilings, keep in mind that electrical boxes, outlets, switches, and light fixtures all must be attached to proper NEC (National Electric Code) approved boxes. At times, these devices may be connected to the structures being removed. While not a serious problem for a professional to correct, it can be a homeowners nightmare when planning minor cosmetic repairs to later find sparking electrical devices literally hanging from threads.
