Certain sorts of fungus can cause damage. Its spores land on wood, and with enough dampness it flourishes. Too much continuous dampness and lack of sun can cause wood decay also. You may see white or gray development on the wood and even a mushroom-like body once it develops. Other obvious indications of wood damage may include blistering, cracked or peeling paint, wood darker than other immediate areas, and green or black algae on the wood.
Door and window sills can be frequently affected by moisture damage, yet it can develop into non-wood surfaces in contact with the ground. It also can spread to non-wood materials, for example, plaster and mortar.
Test for wood decay by inserting a sharp or pointed tool such as a screwdriver into the affected area. In the event that it goes in easily or feels soft, you likely have wood damage.
