Anyone know what a pin moisture meter would read on a "normal" concrete floor? Normal meaning fully cured. This is a basement and house has been there a little over a year. I have read conflicting info on drying times for slabs from 3 months to 2 years.

Try this link, it tells about moisture in concrete and how to test for it. A normal pin meter will not give you a proper reading. You need to drill a hole and place a probe in the hole for a proper reading, and the meter needs to be calibrated or have a concrete setting.
