How should I fix no wall insulation?
My house built in 1953 has no insulation in the walls and I’d like to do something about it. The exterior is cedar shake siding with tar paper underneath and also in need of a paint job or possibly vinyl siding. I will also need to replace the windows at some point.
I’m looking for recommendation on how to insulate.
Would I better off insulating with blown in cellulose from the outside or tearing off the exterior siding and putting up a foam board insulation? Or is any of this just a bad idea?
