Re: Moisture meter
The meter is on non-skid. Tough to measure. Did you try it on large, clear non-skid areas with no deck penetrations? If so, did you also get variable readings? Salt and dirt also effects readings - were these areas cleaned and dried first?
I don't know why you would hesitate to tap an area - it is non-destructive and the owner shouldn't mind. You don't whale on it with a hammer. Some gentle tapping with the end of a screwdriver handle will tell a lot. The reason surveyors use a phenolic hammer (besides being a more comfortable tool) is that with experience, the hammer gives a physical feedback that adds value in addition to the sound.
