Angry outside fuse box

we have an outside fuse box that was without a cover we hired a contractor to replace the box to our surprise we came home to find instead of being replaced it was coverd with an untreated wooden box that looks like a bird house we want to know the codes and #'s of the codes to see if the work done it legitimate common sense is telling me it is more unsafe now then before

It depends what you mean cover. If you mean the one that coves the wiring and electrical pieces, that needs to be metal and made and listed for that box. Outside of that, a cover could be used over the front of the box. Depending on where you are, a "doghouse" as it is called could be required, or at least permitted.
