Just had my new replacement windows installed. Ended up going with an "earthtone" exterior / white interior. All exterior trim was wrapped in the same color. My bedroom windows are on the east side of the house. The other morning the outside temps were fairly cold, and when the morning sun hit the windows I noticed a fairly loud intermittent popping sound. I assume it is some sort of expansion/contraction. We haven't had much sun the last couple of days, so I haven't noticed it again. Any ideas if this could be the window frame, the glass unit, or the outside wrapping? Is there a "break-in" period? The old windows were wood. Thanks!

Your glass and the vinyl frames expand at vastly different rates. What you heard was the glass IGU settling a bit into the vinyl (actually it''s the vinyl making the noise). Not to worry, it's normal. You probably won't hear it again
