Re: Replaced electric panel

Looks like they used a couple of drywall screws in the bottom holes and they are barely in the wood behind the panel. I use 1/4" lags and put a piece of 3/4" plywood up first.

I see a major problem. Someone installed a Square D panel in your house.

What I've seen of Square D panels seems to be very reliable and well built to me. Although... I've only ever seen the commercial grade panels with bolt-in breakers.

Are the Square D residential panels really that bad?

Is that kind of strength necessary? I can tell him. I'm sure he'd do it if I asked.

What's bad about square D panels and what effect does/will it have?

Awesome. More handouts, food stamps, welfare and entitlements to come. I'm so proud.

J/K, I have a personal vendetta against SQD. They really aren't that bad.

Drywall screws aren't allowed for electrical work.

Other than what's already been pointed out, I think neatness is the only issue I see. They could have tidied things up a little.

Good. Whew.

Will the inspector catch the drywall screw thing?
