A contractor installed some wiring and drywalled a room in my basement. He
used a box that is mainly used for cable/internet/telephone wiring for the
electrical outlets.(Open box). I guess there was not enough room to fit a
"normal" box. Behind the opening of the box is concrete block. Do I have a
potential problem? If so how might I resolve the problem?
There are boxes made called "pancake" that are designed for furred walls. I
have seen them in plastic and in metal. IMO the contractor is uninformed
about the proper installation of electrical products.
Call him back have it repaired.
I am not aware of a cut-in/remodel box that will work in this application.
