Mains power attachment point - creaking

Job description

Posted 1 week ago

From our living room, on windy days, there's a subtle creaking/grinding noise. It's quiet, but enough to be annoying.

A few months ago the power company replaced the nearest power pole to our house. I'm pretty sure it started then, and the noise does seem to be coming from where the power line attaches to the house. It also looks like it might be rubbing against the gutter, or maybe the actually board that it mounts to is flexing slightly. Either way, I'm not really keen to faff around next to the power line myself.

We can offer $100 for any qualified builder to sort this, even if it just takes 2 mins and a few nails, but only if it stops it - so ideally come on a windy day.
