New Build - Noisy Vents

    Hi all.

    Bought a new build recently.

    When it's windy the vents make noise. So the ones on the wall make a vibration sound and you can hear the flaps.

    Bathroom vents, which have a fan, make a flapping/ticking sound during wind too.

    Raised it with the builders. They said they were installed to regulations so nothing they can do. I said well would you be happy in a house trying to sleep with vents making noise like that.

    I've never heard of this happening with vents before.

    Any thoughts?

    If it persists only thing I can think of is to get an engineers report and threaten to sue in respect of the vents!

    (House was snagged twice btw, unfortunately some of these things are only seen upon moving in!)
