Say what??? What you have is a failure to communicate. You need to get the surveyor to explain the significance of his reading...if it was not your surveyor, then you need to hire one. God forbid that all 27 year old decks should have moisture and will delamin...that is a pretty odd-ball concept. Some do but most don't.
