Any reason not to put on an inch of foamboard insulation under new siding?


Strategery,

Do you plan on leaving the cedar siding on the house?

Have you considered removing and re-installing windows and doors?

2" of polystyrene around your basement would be a great thing.

What about your soffits?

Difficult to find a place to stop...

Not going to keep the current cedar siding. I want to put a house wrap and foam board layer underneath new siding. I am going to put in 2 new doors for sure but not sure about new windows.

Do you plan on leaving the cedar siding on the house or removing it?

Do you know what your sheathing material is (if any)?
