Missing Kitchen Outlet Covers

Missing outlet covers are normally not that big of a deal. While doing your home inspections simply make a note that these covers are missing and the telephone jack is not installed in the electrical box.

This is common when someone is painting the interior of a house. Most painters remove the outlet covers and cover the plugs or light switches with tape before they start painting.

If the electrical outlet covers can not be found they are relatively inexpensive to replace.

In this house for instance all the electrical covers were missing and the interior walls had recently been painted.
