Someone in your state may have an answer for you, the laws in our state require a master, or J man or someone who has worked 3 1/2 years under a Master or J man to do that type of work, Techs in many cases are not electricians.

IMO, using a 'safety inspection' as a sales tool perverts the intent of the code, and undermines respect for the code by the public.

This is especially true when the bill for swapping out a receptacle for a GFCI is $400.

This only creates hostility between the customer and contractors in general.

That was one of the issues brought to light in the recent CEU law update class, it was also noted that in my state we have a rehab code which allows most of the existing work to remain under the code it was installed. The consumer does not by law have to upgrade, so up selling on code changes will not fly
