Ok got a customer that Has a house that was broken into? The crooks took some of the wiring. They left it about 4-10 feet from the panel. Most of the rest of it is still in tack. They just basicaly took what little they could. That was by the panel.

My question is what will be the easiest way to re do this job and save the customer money.

Generaly when this happens they take all of it. I am just wondering what they code correct way of doing this is. I have a plan just wanted some feed back

Thanks

SBI

Basically the main code issue will be to be sure all of the J boxes remain accessible.
Did the cut the wire or just pull it until it broke. The latter might make things a lot tougher.

Both. Some looks cut with a knife. Some is pulled. I plan on replacing the stuffed that was pulled. I was thinking j boxes also. that seemed the only way with out a complete re wire.

I plan on using new wire going form each breaker to a box. make connections and be done. I am just concerned how it is going to look

It might be worth megging out all of the circuits that were damaged to be sure they did not damage the cable in the wall.
