Hello, and welcome to JA!!
This house has had vandalism?
yes it was they were trying to steel the box I think this is what it looks like
I have quite a bit of experience with this
Great what should I do
The wires can be brought into junction boxes above the panel and extended back into it
however, it looks like some of them are missing
they may have been taken out
No all the wires are there I traced them all back to the origins
but I didn't know if I needed to have the house rewired or if it could be salvaged
As long as all the wires are there, you can install junction boxes above the panel, then reconnect new wires to the breaker box
You need to be VERY careful and inspect the rest of the house for damage.
I cant stress that enough. You need to visually inspect every exposed wire in the basement and attic, and anywhere else that wiring is exposed
I am in the process of doing that now we are tearing out most of the walls in the and we also have to do the plumbing
Thanks for the advice I am suppose to meet with a few electricians this week. I just need to get some advise before I talked to them.
Please dont forget to rate my service, and thanks for using JA!!
