Historic home insulation questions
I am new to the forum and the new owner of a 5700SF Historic home located in Newburgh NY, 12550. The home is in excellent condition overall but will be going through some upgrades over the next few months and I was considering insulating the house while I am at it.
Plaster walls everywhere with clapboard on the exterior. I have spoken with a couple of insulation contractors who are suggesting we would go about it from the exterior. I have read a lot of mixed reviews on this online and also read a lot of the previous post on this topic but still do not have a definitive answer on what to do. Also, anything I did find on the topic was quite old and I am sure there have been advancements in products since then.
The site will not allow me to attach a picture from my phone or computer. If this is possible and recommended, what type of insulation should I be looking for? I know one of the guys mentioned they use victory polymers foam.
