    Can anyone recommend a decent damp test meter please?

    Also would you use an invasive or non invasive one?

    Invasive damp testers are only as invasive as you wish them to be. sufficient pressure to confirm contact is all
    that is needed the prongs can pierce paper to gat at plaster etc if desired
    for non professional use a basic BQ version at £25 is good enough as an indication and to monitor suspect areas
    for getting worse etc to send you running for professional advice if needed, which you would need to prove a case against say a dealer for example
    Average Jo will not be qualified even with the best meter to prove his case
    You will have to learn how to interpret either type of meter
