Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - Ask Roy -

In my Jan­uary col­umn, I an­swered a ques­tion about a mys­te­ri­ous thump­ing noise in a reader’s house. I sug­gested loose sid­ing or trim, a loose vent cap on the roof, or even a grill bump­ing against the house. Many of you had ex­pe­ri­enced your own strange sounds and wrote in to share what caused them.

Shin­gles that would bend up in the wind, then slap down with a thump.

Dryer vent or a bath­fan damper.
