About Moisture Meter Experts
Moisturemeter.com was created to provide a non-stop source of expert information related to moisture management in a variety of building materials. Our experts understand the challenges and the stakes involved in accurately monitoring moisture conditions and know the tools and technology that are available to make that happen.
With wood and concrete building materials, woodworking materials, paper materials and agricultural products, it’s critical to monitor moisture. From the point of manufacture to transportation, storage, installation and post-installation, these materials and products require constant moisture monitoring.
The stakes are high and Moisturemeter.com understands the on-the-ground realities of the need to accurately measure and assess moisture content. We provide extensive laboratory tests, in-depth hands-on reviews and side-by side comparisons of all the leading brands of moisture meters.
Our goal is to provide professionals and hobbyists with both the options and the information they need to make the best choice possible when selecting a moisture measurement tool or system.
Our thorough testing methodology puts each meter through rigorous tests for accuracy and repeatability that considers the effects of:
- Surface Moisture
- Cable Interference & Drift
- Meter Temperature
- Wood Temperature
Then we evaluate the meter for:
- Ease of use
Finally, we evaluate the company to make sure they have excellent customer support.
This gives you the most complete information you can find to make your decision on the best moisture meter for your needs.
Moisture Meter Experts, Inc.’s purpose is to make sure the end users of these moisture measurement devices know whether or not they’ve got a reliable instrument with dependable accuracy. In recent years, there has been a proliferation of cheaply manufactured devices that make confident claims about accuracy and performance that appear to have no basis in reality. Many people using those meters stand to lose a substantial amount of money and even their reputation if those claims are inaccurate. We saw a need to provide clear testing and replicable procedures so that professionals and hobbyists can buy with confidence.
Our testing is done under rigorous conditions to industry standards via the procedures that are published on this site, with the intent that the testing and results can be repeated by any other party that uses these procedures. This testing is much more in-depth than simple moisture meter reviews on Amazon or any other website we’ve seen so far. We hope this level of detail is useful to our readers who aren’t able to do these objective, time-consuming moisture meter tests on their own at scale.
Moisture Meter Experts, Inc. is funded by advertisements and industry partners. If you’d like to help support the testing, please contact us here. We are grateful to Wagner Meters for providing funding for past testing, and we hope for future funding from them and other industry manufacturers and partners. If you’ve got a popular moisture meter you’d like us to test, let us know.
We are here to help because we know moisture meters.
