Default Moisture Meter

Need to purchase myself a moisture meter and would like some recommendations regarding brands and models.

Thanks!

For wood, I had good success with Delmhorst units. They are professional grade and priced accordingly but they are accurate and they hold up. Good customer service.

Thanks Ken. My primary use will be checking walls from the inside - not that it should matter.

I use one made by EXTECH INSTRUMENTS model #MO210.
Got it from Grainger, had it several years with no problems.
It works for wood or other building materials.
Cost around $100.00 if I remember correctly.

I got a set from Costco, moisture meter and temp gun. The MM can be set for wall, masonry, soft and hardwood, with push of a button and an easy to read digital readout. Mannix is the brand, model MMD7NP, the set was like $50.

I've used a Delmhorst for the past 10 years with excellent results.
We call it 'The Fishing Meter'.
