We have a diamond shaped wood decoration high up on a gable roof, with the decoration about a foot below the peak of the gable. In windy conditions it seems to be making a noise, so I am wondering if it is installed properly. It is not attached directly onto the brick, but seems to have nothing behind it. Our neighbour's homes that have the same decoration have two screws vertically in the decoration, one in the top half of the diamond and one in the bottom half.
Should our decoration have some kind of bracing behind it? Is it possible that it is moving slightly in the wind creating a noise?
