It was shocking to see the devastation that happened in the house across the Street. The Home Inspector who had looked at the house was surprised at the shoddy Electrical job that was done. He insisted that an Electrician must be called to look at the wiring and various connections in the house. One of the Electricians who came in to look at the building saw the state of things and tried to be conservative. He was concerned about the cost and tried to create some palliative measures for the house. This infuriated the Home Inspector because the house was almost burnt down due to the wrong Electrical wiring. The Inspector insisted that cost must not be the constraint in doing the right thing.
The Electrician agreed but felt that the Home owner might not have the required budget. This led to a sharp argument between the Home Inspector and the Electrician. The weight of what the Electrician said came as a surprise to the Home Inspector. ’In my years in the Home Inspection business, I have never had such an experience. You are a professional and a certified Electrician. Safety cannot be compromised. It is wise to do what is right” the Home Inspector said. It dawned on the Electrician that he could no longer play to the gallery. He saw the need of the hour and decided to do what is right.
The Electrician began to re-assess the connections and compute the cost of the job. He was thorough and decided it was in the best interest of everyone to get it right. The Home owner had been quiet while the altercation went on but he managed to speak when everywhere was calm. He asked the Home Inspector that he would love to know more about his penchant for excellence. The Home Inspector talked to him briefly and gave him a link – http://www.waltechhomeinspections.com – quotes and more information could be found there he told him. The Homeowner promised to search the page because he had realized that there is the need to do things the right way.
The cost of putting the Electrical works in top gear was on the high side. However, based on the input of the Home Inspector; the Home owner gave the go-ahead for the work to begin in earnest. It took a full week for the House to be restored to normalcy. The incessant sparks and other electrical challenges became a thing of the past. The Homeowner who had wanted to sell the property at a give-away price had a rethink. It dawned on him that he could rent out the house for a season before selling. His projection worked out well because the market value of the house jumped in two years. The Homeowner was able to recoup the investment he made on the property.
He thanked the Home Inspector and the Electrician in his heart as he remembered the event that had played out two years earlier. He was at the center of the storm but he was currently enjoying the positive aftermath.
