    Wind noise with uPVC double glazing

    Wind noise with uPVC double glazing 26th Mar 08 at 12:35 PM
    I had my windows replaced with uPVC double glazing last spring. Most of them are fine, but the one in my bedroom has a problem. It's a square bay, and in high winds there's a noise in the room like a kazoo, or like when you blow through a piece of grass at school and make that sort of buzzy squeaking sound (don't know how else to describe it).

    There's obviously a tiny hole somewhere, but I can't find it. I had an engineer from the window company round, and he couldn't see anything wrong. He put some sealant where I thought there might be a hole but it hasn't made a blind bit of difference. Trouble is, it wasn't windy when he was round, and since they book their engineers a week or so ahead, I can't get someone round on a windy day (I have to take time off work to have someone out).

    What can I do? Short of stropping about it till they replace the whole window?

    The noise is really irritating, it's very audible (though not loud) and especially annoying overnight.
