This is proper scary! I used to hear loud noises of footsteps on my roof every once in awhile and told my husband about it. He said could be possum (we saw a huge possum many times outside our house). And when the contractor came to fix our roof due to some leakage and I asked him, he said it's almost impossible for a human being to walk on our roof because it's glazed and very high chance he could slip and fall.

Now that I read this news, I wonder what the contractor said is true?

@Veron Hi dear, what you need to check are the beam spaces in your roof. I've heard once before that the older houses have wider beam spaces and are hence easier to get between and climb down. But for the older houses there is usually a proper space where they can climb down to, so you will need to put an alarm sensor there as well.

As for the roof being glazed, professional roof specialists won't have a problem with it. I have observed before a roof repairman climb up one of those very steep 45˚ angle roofs to repair them. Remained perched there for half a day at that. You may want to get a second opinion.

@Fu, alarm sensor under the roof??? I've never heard of that before! I think generally people won't think of putting alarm under the roof because the odds of burglar climbing in through the roof are pretty low, I assume?

Oh, my house has an alarm sensor in the roof. :) It was quite common at one point in the past, there was a story of a teenager who was raped and murdered in her room while her parents were asleep in the next room. Escaped scott free too. Because the opening from the roof into the house was in her bedroom.
