Fungal decay or Termite damage?

Many homeowners get confused if the funny looking skirting board or damage external balustrade is caused by termite damage or wet rot (fungal decay).

Fungal decay – wet rot – what does it look like?

On the outside, it can look similar to termite damage. As a rule of thumb, if you push the affected area with your finger or a screw driver and it feels spongy, it is probably caused by fungal decay.
