How Do We Test for Moisture?

We use a Protimeter tool to detect moisture content to coincide with our visual inspection. Protimeter is a brand that produces moisture meters used in various industries such as construction, building inspection, and restoration. These meters measure the moisture content in materials like wood, drywall, concrete, and other building materials. The readings obtained from a Protimeter typically indicate the percentage of moisture present in the material being tested.

It's important to note that acceptable moisture levels can vary depending on factors such as the type of material being tested, environmental conditions, and the specific requirements of the application. Additionally, Protimeter readings are just one part of a comprehensive moisture assessment process, and other factors such as visual inspection and environmental conditions should also be considered when evaluating moisture issues in buildings or construction materials.

Interpreting Protimeter readings generally involves comparing the obtained moisture content to acceptable levels for the specific material being tested. Here's a general guideline for understanding Protimeter readings:
