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.
