Power vents


#1

Something from a liability standpoint struck me today. I just got a re-roof job that needs a new power vent. Does anyone think there could be liability involved with messing with wires on this level? Obviously a power vent is no different than changing a light fixture but officially I’m not an electrician right? What does anyone think about this?

I don’t come across power vents to often and when the occasion does present itself I absolutely do not touch them, and it all as to do with liability.
I do offer them a number to a qualified licensed electrician who has worked for me in the past.

Do them all the time. I’m allowed to ‘step out of trade’ in Va. I can’t pretend to be an electrician, and the job cost can’t exceed $250.00.

Usually, an installation work and electrical wiring
must be done by qualified person(s) in
accordance with all applicable codes and
standards, including fire-rated
construction. But, I do it almost on all of my projects.
