Thanx, petey, I'll sleep much better tonight. However, I stand by what I've stated.

In today's litigious society, I really don't enjoy paying out my hard-earned dollars to lawyers for defending me from people who insist I have not adequately warned them (with strong enough terms) about possible hazards in their future home. Been there, done that, no thank you.

Oh, and for the record--I have never told any Buyer to have the Seller do anything. I've only pointed out potential hazards, and leave it up to the two parties to determine who pays for what. Pointing out deficiencies in properties can make things difficult for the Inspector, and I've been called a "deal-breaker" by Realtors who blamed me (instead of the house's condition) for giving a Buyer cold feet.

It is all in the way the buyer takes it. And more often than not the buyer takes it that things MUST be done.
I can't tell you how many times I hear "The inspector said this HAS to be done, or that HAS to be replaced", only to find of that it was a home inspector that said it.

Siemens is the brand we prefer. They make a good panel with copper bus bars and are a good company. Square D is also a quality panel but is a little pricey. I would steer clear of GE...IMO.
