WOOD STRUCTURE ASSESSMENT
Moisture meter brands, types, manufacturers, sources & prices. This article lists examples of moisture meters useful for measuring building materials such as concrete, wood, plaster. We give examples of the differences between pin type moisture meters and electronic sensor moisture measuring devices and explain the particular uses of each type of moisture meter.
This article series explains the use and reliability of different types of moisture detection equipment to find water entry problems on buildings. We demonstrate where moisture meters work successfully and where (and why) they don't.

Note: here we list only devices specifically designed to measure moisture level in typical building materials (wood, plaster, drywall, concrete); we exclude humidity measuring devices (moisture in air), and similar devices.

Details are at SIDING, FIBER CEMENT MOISTURE LEVELS.
Watch out when pricing moisture meters, not only for the fundamental limitations of various moisture meter device types, but also because some retailers quote a "lowball" price that does not include equipment that you need to use the meter, such as probes.
Also note that this list is incomplete; many of these manufacturers offer a wide range of moisture meter models with varying prices & features.
