Overhead Electric Service Mast - Advanced Corrosion
Rust and corrosion are common defects found in homes, condominiums and commercial properties.  The photo above shows a close-up view of an overhead electrical service mast that has corroded completely through, exposing the electrical service feeder cables inside the mast.
Photo to the left shows a wider view of the electrical service mast and masthead shown above.

Corrosion to electrical components is a hazard that requires immediate replacement by a licensed electrical contractor who is experienced and qualified to make this type of repair or by the electrical utility company..

This condition is dangerous.  The structural integrity of the mast has been seriously compromised.  This is particularly dangerous when you consider the amount of tension that is placed upon this service mast from the overhead electrical feeders stretching from the utility pole.  Visible corrosion at any electrical component is a hazard and should be immediately replaced by a licensed electrical contractor who is experienced and qualified to make this type of repair or by the electrical utility company.
