This Electrical Inspection Checklist: Residential Rough Inspection General is engineered to provide an NEC compliant process to guide you in your safety inspections.
As a result of its frequent use, the residential home constitutes one of the more dangerous electrical locations. The sheer number of residential houses mean that fires or other problems resulting from poor wiring practices and other electrical faults pose a serious danger to the public.
The purpose of the residential rough inspection general is to begin to identify the key areas which require checking, and to make sure all electrical systems adhere to appropriate standards.
This process is editable and you can add or remove steps as you please. Each inspection-specific task contains the relevant NEC section reference which applies to the action. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the standards before beginning any inspection.
As you work through the checklist, you will encounter form fields where you can enter information and notes in relation to each task. The checklist will save each entry and the data can be accessed from the overview tab on the left-hand column of your template overview.
You can also opt to print your checklist once you have completed the inspection. This will give you the option to save it as a PDF and act as an automatically generated report.
You can watch the video below for an introduction into the residential electrical inspection process.
