We have a 70 year old home and need to add insulation.  It is painted brick and we are interested in adding insulation and recladding the exterior.  Is this the best way to go?  What kind of products should we be considering.  Pros and cons?  We live in Chicago area--so hot/cold extreems are an issue.
