Renovate exterior in ~3 years, but need to redo siding ASAP
We are saving to do an energy retrofit on our home. We are probably about 3 years away from having the money to retrofit the exterior (exterior foam, new doors, new windows).
Currently we have fiberglass batts in between the studs, 1″ polyiso, and then 4’x8′ wood panel siding.
The siding is deteriorating significantly. Some areas are rotted through. We think we cannot really wait 3 years to do something about it.
What should we do now to minimize redoing work and wasting materials?
