Q: How important is it to measure the moisture levels of my concrete subfloor?
I'm finishing my basement and I would love to have hardwood floors installed. Can someone giv eme advice on how to accurately read the moisture levels?
It's very important. Well a profesional would use a concrete moisture meter. they cost from $200-$400. A less expensive way is to but not as accurate is to tape a 12"x12" piece of plastic to the concrete and wait. about 72hrs. If there's condensation the level is to high. Remember the level can change at diferant seasons. They're moisture control systems you can use if you moisture level is to high.
