Question

Romex simpull


Is ROMEX SIMPULL within NYC CODE in a two family house Directly under vinyl siding for exterior lighting?
Looks like a opening in the insulation was made for the ROMEX SIMPULL to lie in and then just covered with vinyl siding.
Is this considered a wet area or damp area?
I think it might be 12 gague or something like it.
I was told about a code # 334.12(B) (4)
I am somewhat confused about the interpertation of this code.
I am not sure this should be used outside going across under siding like a conduitit.
Not sure if it good even in conduitit?
Also just in case of decorating or hanging something- could it be a fire hazzard?
Anyone that knows this kind of info please answer.
I called the NYC coding dept. and was told not within code.
I called NYC inspectors and was told not within code.
My contractor and a neighbor said it is within code.
My contractor said the NYC code dept is lieing to me.
Please help.
This contractor said he would put my conduitit under the siding.
Then the siding guy came and said can't cover it - would stick out.
Siding guy talked to the contractor and they changed it.
Left a piece of scrap of it and I went to the computer and my questions began.
Please help.

Did your contractor have in inspection and pull a permit. He should have. When the inspector comes he will fail it most likely. Does your contract state all work is to be inspected and to code?

Note that the cable may not be laid in a notch in a stud and run less than 1-1/4 inches from the edge of the stud where the siding is nailed or stapled on, unless a metal plate intended to protect wiring has been put over the notch with the wire in it.

. that's a new one on me. Can't say I have ever heard anybody tell me the inspector is the one lying in such a situation.

have your contractor call the inspector out before it is covered. If the inspector says it's good, it's good. If he says no, unless your contractor can convince the inspector it actually is a legal install, then it's no and it gets changed.
