Recently we were called to a job to fix the work of a not so handy “handyman” here in Birmingham. The owners had paid him to install a new light in a drop down ceiling. Something must not have been going right for him, and the wires were getting in the way, so he rigged it in WITHOUT putting the aluminum and copper connections in the proper fire protection junction box. This could have led to a terrible disaster for the homeowners. In the end, the ‘handyman” never answered calls from the homeowners, leaving them on the hook for his shotty work and having to essentially pay for the job twice, once from his mess up and one for our electrical repair.
Please do not attempt any electrical repairs or installations on your own or from anyone who is not a licensed electrician. It is not worth the risk!
