Roof rats frequently enter buildings from the roof or from accesses near overhead utility lines, which they use to travel from area to area.
Neophobia is more pronounced in roof rats than in Norway rats.
Check the repairs you've done, to make sure no new areas have been chewed open.
I highly recommend snap traps, not live cage traps, certainly not glue boards, and most definitely not poison! Never poison rats, it doesn't solve the problem and it just creates more problems.

However, rats are a nuisance animal wherever you choose to release them, and they also have a particularly low rate of survival once they have been relocated, so in most cases using humane lethal traps will be the best way to deal with the infestation.
Roof rats prefer to nest in locations off of the ground and rarely dig burrows for living quarters if off-the-ground sites exist.
However, the complexity in mode of action of newer materials makes these classifications outdated.
Only after you've sealed the openings shut, you should start trapping and removal.
Roof rats are polygamous and group themselves into colonies of multiple males and females.
Once established, they readily breed and thrive within buildings, just as Norway rats do.
Damage - a rat's teeth are constantly growing and that means they have to chew on hard things like wood to trim them back.
Taste perception of rats is good; once rats locate food, the taste will determine their food preferences.

Exclusion is an important rodent control technique.
For a one-time fee, we trap and remove all rats, and identify and reconstruct all rat entry points.
