We installed seamless steel siding on our new house. We have 5/8" drywall and plywood sheathing. The noise from the siding is unbearable! We chose a light color siding to minimize the heat induced expansion and contraction. I work from home and there are days when I cannot concentrate because it sounds as if someone is crushing an aluminum can and continually "crinkling" it. The siding company has come out and replaced 2 walls of siding with no improvement. The noise doesn't stop when the sun goes may continue to "pop" well into the night. Anyone else experience this and are there andy suggestions? We are ready to tear it off and put up higher maintenence wood siding.

I would say that the siding is either nailed too tightly, the locks are formed too tightly on it, or there are bows in the wall which are putting the siding under stress.

Do one of two things:

1) Contact the franchisor for your siding and have them send a regional rep out to inspect


2) Have a third party experienced siding contractor come do an inspection.

My personal guess is that the top lock on the siding has been rolled too tight.

Let me know if you have further questions.

I really wish there was an update to this as 14 years later we have the exact same problem after installing seamless steel siding. I haven't slept in months. The installers have said I am "too sensitive" to sound and the franchisers (US Seamless) will not respond to me. I don't have 20K to do it all over again.
