I live in Southern Alberta and will be replacing my exterior vinyl siding with wood, I also want to add insulation at the same time. It's a 2x4 wall with pink insulation and a vapour barrier behind the drywall, and only vinyl on the outside. There are a lot of different kinds of foam and I don't want to choose the wrong one, which do you recommend and how much will I need? Thanks, Michael.
for retrofits, should you install insulation on the inside or outside?
