Someone's banging on our roof

For the past month or more now, the cockies (Cockatoos) have been in our Liquidamber tree which towers above the office roof of our house. They like to chew the nuts or whatever it is the trees are producing. All day long, during daylight, there is this constant banging as they drop their castoffs below them. It used to make me jump but I’ve gotten used to it now. They do make quite a mess – leaves, small branches and nuts they’ve finished with. Autumn is both a pretty and messy time. Our garden is littered with leaves. I’ll rake them up one day but for now they look lovely.

  1. In most instances, the roofing system was compromised due to a weather event, animal or fire. Mother Nature is an incredibly strong opponent for roofing systems. Winds that exceed 50 mph have the force to tear shingles from the roof and expose the substrate. Trees limbs will be torn off trees and tossed about like toothpicks penetrating the structure. Lightning can strike and literally blow a hole through the structure. Raccoons and squirrels love to chew through rotted wood and create sizable holes in the roof. Fire, of course, will decimate anything in its path.
