Moisture Meters: An Essential Tool in the Hardwood Flooring Industry 

Meters can help professionals keep hardwood material in top shape by preventing damage caused by high moisture content, across trades, such as carpenters, woodworkers, and building inspectors. 

The Benefits of High-Quality Moisture Meters for Hardwood Flooring Professionals 

High-quality moisture meters give woodworking professionals a thorough and accurate assessment of moisture content in hardwood flooring that determines its suitability for installation. Checking moisture levels during floor installation and acclimatization lets you assure customers that they will receive quality and durable products that last. With reduced liability issues, you can expect less repair work from warranty claims, so you can focus on other value-added aspects of running your business. 


Your Guide to Choosing the Best Moisture Meter for Your Hardwood Flooring Applications 

The NWFA guidelines state that installers should typically take 20 readings per 1,000 square feet for wood flooring to acquire an accurate average result. A high-quality moisture meter enables you to obtain precise MC measurements for the most lasting and well-fitted hardwood flooring installations.
