Why do contractors neglect using quality electrical materials?

Our home, built in 1997, which we purchased this past June of 2017, had switches and outlets that sparked and at times switches that did not work. After removing the covers I found wires that were not connected because the plastic had deteriorated and the wires were not connected to the screws but instead pushed into the tiny hole behind the unit.

Not a fan of the quick and easy way of installing the wires! Cheap materials and substandard installation is not acceptable especially when safety is concerned. Do not expect even new construction to be safe just because it’s new!

Have qualified trade people you trust to double check contractor work, the money spent then will save you peace of mind as well as cash!
