Flooring Manufacturer Warrenty in Relation to Moisture
The flooring manufacturer installation guidelines typically call out specific moisture testing requirements. The requirements will vary depending on the flooring manufacturer. Some state to conduct testing in accordance with ASTM F1869 (CaCl) and/or ASTM F2170 (rapidRH), others may use solely and meaning both test methods.

I believe there are many instances where ASTM F1869 requriements will be met but the F2170 results will be too high. For instance, the CaCl result will be under 5 lbs. and relative humidity will be at 85% exceeding the required 80%.

In an and/or typr guideline does the flooring contractor install the flooring with a typical warrenty?
