my hardwood floor is disintegrating as well as a couple of cabinets falling off the wall. new soft spots are showing up in other rooms on the hardwood. the trim around a window is soft also. the house used to be stucco. it was torn out and visibly rotted wood replaced. the house was termited about 5 years ago before this started. where can i go to get a piece of the porus wood checked to find out whats going on

Houses that were improperly "stuccoed" or "Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems" installed wrong usually have more than one problem. Termites, carpenter ants, and pervasive wood rot/fungus go together. The termites may be back in spite of treatment. Taking a piece of wood somewhere will get that piece diagnosed, but if multiple problems exist then you will be missing potentially important information about your house. I suggest hiring a structural engineer to do a thorough assessment of your structure. They will be objective as they do not do repairs; they are in the information business. It will be expensive, but my sense is that much is wrong at your house. Keep us posted.
