I've got a situation and need some help. I'm currently in the middle of a pretty big remodel job for a customer. I've got most of the work done and am just about ready to get the flooring portion done. That will wrap the job. I've installed a lot of laminate floating floors but never done an engineered wood floating floor. I usually do regular nail down hardwood or laminate. But this floor is a 3/8" engineered wood floating floor. I've got the material on site and should start installing it early next week. The thing is that it's going down on a lower level over a concrete slab. In order for the warranty to be valid, I have to check and document the moisture content of the slab. This house is thirty-nine years old so it's WELL cured but I still need to check the moisture content of the slab. Normally I don't install over concrete so I can't justify spending several hundred dollars to buy a meter for the job. I've called several rental places but haven't found one yet that has one to rent. Do you know of anyone in SE Michigan that has a concrete moisture meter that is available for rent? If so, a PM would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much in advance!
