Great Non-Invasive Moisture Meter for the Price.

As home inspectors, our firm uses this model to easily and inexpensively find areas of elevated moisture in many building materials. We've been very happy with them.

Does not appear to function as advertised

The General Tools MMD5NP Non-Invasive Digital Moisture has two modes, one for wood and another for "construction materials" including things like concrete. My meter gives marginally accurate readings for wood -- it appears that I can tell if wood is wet or somewhat wet. For other materials, I am not sure I have ever gotten a reliable reading. Readings for concrete are pegged at 99.99%. Readings for drywall are always 0. It projects a short distance into the material which can skew readings. I have a bookshelf whose bottom shelf is higher than this distance. When the bookshelf is on its side, the bottom shelf can read 0 while the same location when the case is standing on a concrete floor will be high, often pegged due to the odd readings on the concrete. It is often impossible to know what to do with the readings from this tool.

Moisture meter

Cons: Gives me a reading of 56.6% all over the house. Whether on hardwood floor or the concrete slab. Glad it wasn't $500.00.

Great Non-Invasive Moisture Meter for the Price.

Your review: I needed to find a less-expensive moisture meter for the new inspectors we've hired. I was looking for a responsive meter that could signal comparitive differences in moisture levels without making stab marks into finished surfaces. This meter seems to do just as well as the $500+ meters we've been previously using.
