Q:

The roof of my 2013-built single-family house makes loud squeaking/creaking noise on windy days. The problem started in one room and expanded to another. It's getting louder over time. The builder says "It is my belief that the noise you are hearing is caused by the wind coming through the two homes, almost creating a natural breezeway and getting behind the siding, causing it to tap against the exterior walls. This is a natural occurrence." However, my neighbors (all in new houses by the same national builder) do not have this problem.

The noise is very annoying, life disturbing, and makes me worried of the safety of MY whole family. Sometimes I hearing tapping sound too. What could be the reason for a brand new home to have such A problem? Is it possiblY due to a natural breezeway, like the builder claims? What should we do?
