The Surveymaster Moisture Meter can help building professionals such as contractors, surveyors, home builders and architects assess building moisture levels during new build and refurbishing activities.

  • Identify the extent of the moisture penetration
  • Diagnose the cause of the problem
  • Monitor change in the moisture level

Protimeter moisture meters and hygrometers satisfy these requirements comprehensively. The Surveymaster Moisture Meter is the preferred industry choice for surveying and investigating moisture in buildings.
