First: Is Aluminum siding a good insulator? Good enough to not worry about "non insulated" walls under it?
Second: Does this sound like a good idea for prepping for a new roof?
Its cold here now. About 20 degrees F. Can't do a roof now. Have to wait for the Spring. I have 3 leaks that I can see now. I will get them patched up. Then I have drop down ceilings upstairs in 3 rooms. They all have molded ceilings above them. I want to rip down all those ceilings. Then I have plastered walls with lath. And it looks like their is mold on the plaster. So I want to rip down all the plaster in those rooms also. Then throw all that crap in a dumpster and ship it out of here. Then Spring will come and I'll get the roof done.
I'm looking at some semi-open walls and no ceilings in three rooms for a few months. This shouldn't be a big deal right?
Its a two story house. We currently live on the main level. We don't even go upstairs really. We have a door that is closing off the entrance to the stairs which leads to upstairs.
