Richard Moore Posted November 10, 2009 Report Share Posted November 10, 2009 I've seen some nasty wood shake roofs, but today's may have been the worst. And this on a home listed at just under two million. The following is a typical example. Download Attachment: 091109P043x.jpg 247.86 KB 1986 home BTW, obviously original roof. Inside the attic I found half a dozen holes to clear daylight through the felt and shakes above. But the best is the one I found after a knee-screwing-up crawl to the other end. This I could put my fist through. Download Attachment: 091109P071x.jpg 240.6 KB It looks like it got enlarged by rodents (no bird nest stuff). There were typical runs in the loose-fill insulation, some rat traps (still set) back at the hatch, but I didn't see any droppings. Easy call on the roof replacement but I have...questions: 1. Do squirrels poop in attics? 2. If so, would it resemble rat poop and be found in the same places? 3. Why would a rat bother to make a hole WAY larger than it needs. 4. Are roof beavers a figment of my imagination? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
