New to learning about electrical systems here. Have questions for the pros who hopefully can shed some insight...

1) Is it normal to wrap electrical tape on service entrance conductors, and other hot wires on the exterior of a house where the insulation has diminished due to weather?

2) Is it normal for electricians to use large amounts of putty to fill holes where gromets should be placed to keep the wire securly in place? (also the use of pipe insulation)?

3) Can wire nuts be used within a new electrical panel that was just updated from the old screw in fuse box?

I had a home inspection done on a house to be purchased. We looked today at the "so-called" repairs, and I'm questioning the "licensed electrician's" ways of fixing electrical issues.
