Houses in Logan are usually a pretty easy target for the Common Brushtail Possum.
With the extensive use of timber for housing construction and the general age of the suburbs, unfortunately possums simple chew through weakened and aged timber to gain access to your roof space. The other big issue is that there are a lot of homes which have been renovated or extended and often the join between new and old has holes where possums can get in.
Before possums became a big issue in Logan, houses were built with ventilation and airflow in mind. The extensive use of tiled roofs causes particular problems because the pointing (grout) in the tiles deteriorates over time and falls out. This is a huge problem, not only with birds but now days possums. Commonly these gaps were sealed off with chicken wire but a possum with a will to get in will chew through or rather keep biting at it until they get through.
The reason possums are in your roof is because they want a place to sleep. Under normal circumstances they would live in a hollow in a tree but we have encroached on there territories and by our expanding urban sprawl which takes away the natural habitat and replaces it with a beautiful dry, comfortable roof to call home. Now I know they’re native animals but they’re far from stupid and lets face it what would you rather?
