Is It Normal for Vinyl Siding to Make Noise?

Sometimes, sliding makes noise even after proper installation. For example, exterior siding may make noise due to temperature changes or windy conditions. However, appropriately installed siding should make minimal noise, even in these conditions. 

Why does Siding Make Noise When Temperatures Change?

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. However, the sounds shouldn’t be noticeable if professionals correctly installed the materials to allow for this action.

Hiring an experienced contractor can minimize the issues associated with poor installation. 

Does Siding Make Noise When It’s Windy?

Sometimes, strong winds can result in noisy siding in Illinois. However, this issue is more likely if you’re dealing with loose siding. 

The wind can grab loose siding and shift it around, resulting in loud noises. Strong windows can also leave you with damaged siding if the wind pulls it completely free of your wall. 

You can reach out to a professional contractor if you have concerns about wind noise and the effects of the weather on your exterior siding.

How do You Fix Noisy Siding?

One of the most common questions we get is about the “popping” or “crackling” sounds they hear from their vinyl siding. Unfortunately, if workers fail to install it 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. So, how do we fix issues with noisy vinyl siding? In these cases, prevention represents the best method to handle this issue. You want a reputable contractor to properly put in your siding.

Installing your siding to the right level of tightness prevents noise and other issues caused by temperature fluctuations and wind. However, you may also speak with siding professionals about tightening loose siding to reduce noise.

Does Older Siding Make More Noise?

Even properly installed siding can start making loud sounds as it grows older. Continued exposure to hot and cold weather can loosen formerly tight siding, resulting in increased noises and other issues. 

Loose siding can cause more than cosmetic issues. The issue can also allow moisture into your home, potentially causing damage to your walls. We’re ready to handle issues with vinyl siding, including unwanted noises, when you contact us for help.
