One of the most common questions we get is about the “popping” or “crackling” sounds they hear from their vinyl siding. Unfortunately, if it isn’t installed properly, some kinds of vinyl cladding can make noises that last for weeks or even months. In some severe cases, it can happen on and off for the life of the installation. If it’s installed properly in the first place, however, you can enjoy the beauty and durability of your vinyl siding for years without having to tolerate mysterious popping or crackling sounds.
Expansion And Contraction
The most common cause of noises such as pops or creaks is the expansion and contraction of your siding as the seasons change. When temperatures soar, vinyl will expand; when it’s cold outside, it will contract and become more brittle. This expansion and contraction is sometimes accompanied by crackling or creaking when the temperature changes are dramatic, although the sounds shouldn’t be noticeable if the materials have been properly installed to allow for this action.
