Moisture Testing Protocols


Recommended Posts

OK; who's got the moisture testing protocol that would be "court worthy". I own a Protimeter Surveymaster, did a bunch of deep probes on this afternoons inspection (no Chad, not that kind of deep probe), & found a million dollar house full of water. This baby is going to court.

Please, who has the definitive testing method that makes me look smart?

Hi Kurt,

I don't know whether this would stand up in court, but if I see an area of damp, I first test several areas of the same wall or ceiling that appear to be un affected to establish a base line, then I take a reading in what appears to be the visible middle of the area and every 12 inches working outwards until the meter readings return to the baseline. Sometimes I document where the B/L readings were taken and all the reading on the damage.
