Double Tap
Double Tap

A double tapped circuit breaker is when two wires (conductors) are connected to one specific circuit breaker or one terminal on the same circuit breaker. With two wires connected to the same breaker or terminal, the circuit breaker could overheat. If the two wires are not fastened tightly enough, this could result in arcing. (Arcing occurs when two electrodes produce a plasma discharge.) A fire may also occur if your circuit breaker is double tapped.

Modern homes have roofs attached to the walls of the home with clips or straps having 3 or more nails on every truss. This home from the 1950s had only 2 nail clips. Insurance will be significantly higher but can be retrofitted to the new standard.

Skylights require extra attention. They are often the source of leaks, but also need to be inspected for whether they are hurricane impact tested and approved.
