During the manufacturing process of wood as the moisture content increases or decreases the wood expands or contracts and can cause many problems. Some of these problems include uneven floors, cupping/crowning, sunken joints, panel end splits etc.
The moisture content in wood for interior use should be between 6-7% for excess moisture problems above not to occur. A moisture meter is a perfect way to detect moisture build up in areas during manufacturing to prevent excess moisture and to properly dry before selling and installing.
