MY house was built in 1896. I believe thiere is some type of wall insulation, as cold walls are not my problem. On one outside wall of my house, I can feel cold air drafts between the floor and where the wall hits the floor. It is not coming from the basment as it is cold air, and the floors in the basement along the walls have insulation. I am suspecting it is coming up under the siding and then into the house. There is a gap at the bottom of the siding where it hits the foundation. What kind of insulation can I stick up under the siding to see if this will help? I assume something that might be resistant to moisture, etc.
