Removing Window and Door Headers to Insulate
My siding/exterior insulation project is soon to start back up. I will be removing a few unwanted windows and one door permenantly, install studs and making wall.
Questions on the window/door headers- I assume they should be removed to make room for insulation? Likely build a temporary wall to brace the truss above while surgery happens and studs are installed?
What about the gable side? I understand gable ends are usually (but not always?) Not load bearing walls… I wouldn’t know if mine are or not, so should anything be done while remove those window headers for structural safety or such?
Thank you for any pointers and opinions 😁
