Home Improvement Questions? Ask a Handyman for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today.
When you say mended, do you mean in a junction box that will be accessible or inside the wall? Is there an attic above or a basement below? Did the electrician know that the wall would be removed in the future before starting the work?
A junction box is just like an outlet box or switch box but instead of a switch a cover is put on and the wires are connected inside. As long as they can install an access box there is not any problem with mending the wires that way. The wires cannot be mended where there is not access to them like inside the wall. As long as the connections are accessible there is not a problem. Actually if there will be electrical plans in the future plan of removing the wall you may just want to leave it as is. No point in spending extra money now to move the wires only to find that you never remove the wall.
You are very welcome
