Flooring Inspection: Screeds and concrete floors must be sufficiently dry before the floor covering is installed. Excessive moisture can lead to a host of problems such as adhesive degradation, delaminating floor coverings from the slab and within itself, condensation, blistering, movement, mold and overall deterioration of the covering. Excess moisture under wood floors leads to swelling, cupping and movement. Tramex moisture meters help you avoid these problems. Our moisture meters will let you regularly check the moisture content of sub floors to ensure they are sufficiently dry before installing your floor. Our moisture meters are the most precise, versatile and easy-to-use available and will allow you make multiple tests over a large area in the shortest time possible. We offer the widest range of both non-destructive and pin type moisture meters available.
Roofing Inspection: Leaks cause damage to the structure and contents of the building, can lead to disintegration of the roofing systems, necessitating expensive repairs or replacement. The thermal performance of roof insulation is dramatically reduced when it is wet leading to higher heating and air-conditioning costs. When you need to manage these situations, choose Tramex moisture meters and electrical impedance scanners. Tramex offers the best and most cost effective moisture detection tools available for deep moisture scanning, surveying, leak tracing across a range of building materials.
Wood Inspection: We supply individual moisture meters, both non-destructive and with pin-type probe attachments, as well as complete kits. These instruments are an essential part of a Wood Professional’s toolbox. The three main reasons for controlling moisture content in wood are: • To minimize problems due to dimensional change or distortion which can be caused by moisture loss or gain by the wood or wood byproducts when in use. • To enable efficient processing such as milling, machining, gluing, laminating, spraying and painting. • To prevent deterioration and decay, ensuring adequate strength.
Pest Control: The detection of areas of excess moisture is one of the most important elements in the location, control and eradication of wood destroying organisms. Termites and other common wood destroying pests need moisture and high humidity to survive and multiply. Inspectors should not focus solely on moisture-prone areas, as termites can relocate water to dry areas.
Our Moisture Meters help Pest Management Professionals determine if existing conditions are conducive to the infestation of termites, carpenter ants and other wood-destroying insects. They are very useful tools for deciding on the optimal placement of aboveground bait stations and can also be a useful monitoring tool during follow-up inspections after a termite treatment. Assessing moisture level changes pre- and post-treatment can be useful in determining whether or not further investigation is warranted.
Our moisture meters and kits will help you perform a more thorough inspection, increasing disclosure and possibly decreasing liability. Results could lead to a satisfied customer, enhancement of your professional image, fewer callbacks and increased sales.
