I'm both a Level 1 thermographer and a home inspector. I recommend a non-destructive meter (pinless) like a Tramex Moisture Encounter Plus or equilivant. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. There are specific meters for roofing depending on application. Hope this helps.

I have used them all and I still prefer a non destructive. I went thru a stage of using delmhurst ones with the pins but the one I use now ia the same one I started out with 15 years ago . The dryez non destructive meter.

Hi I have just read this thread and think that you should be aware that moisture meters are not the be all and end all. As a UK Chartered Building Surveyor I have been asked to review a book on this subject by Jeff Howell, and it makes very interesting reading worth the price. most moisture meters as with thermal imaging rely upon surface moisture. This is not an indication of actual moisture within the body of the subject and this is where errors are often made when delivering an analysis. To prove without doubt that excesive moisture exists you need to drill the structure and test the moisture content of the drillings. A moisture meter is only an indicator not a positive to be relied upon.
Stay well
The Verfier
