Default Moisture Inspection

Was asked by client to check moisture levels in basement. Client stated her Insurance company needed this before releasing funds to pay for water damage. Client stated " Insurance company told me to buy a moisture meter or pay someone to check walls for moisture levels. Question is... What type of an agreement should I have client sign prior to inspection?

Default Re: Moisture Inspection

Not a high liability job if you back it up with photos of the readings on your moisture meter to even need an agreement. Just get paid before you release your report. Keep in mind that according to IICRC, wood moisture show be no higher than 16 percent.
