Did you ever imagine that just like the way a thermometer detects whether you have a fever or not, there could be a device that detects how well the walls of your home are doing? That’s right!

The Homeshield Moisture Meter technology enables to quickly scan large surfaces of walls and roofs in no time, detecting the level of moisture present in them. This comes in handy because when it comes to dampness in a wall, finding the source of dampness quickly is crucial.

The water damage caused by moisture intrusion into the structure can require thousands of rupees of remediation and repair if left unchecked for long.

We, at Berger Paints India, use Homeshield Moisture Meter to easily detect moisture trapped in walls and roofs, which could be due to leaking roof, rainwater or underground seepage.

The Homeshield Moisture Meter quickly scans and targets spots where one can confidently take measurements, analyse readings and ensure that problems are fixed with customised waterproofing solutions.
