House looks funny without any siding on it. The last picture is what's going back on it.

While you have all the siding off check the window installation ! Now is the time to fix it. Hardly anyone puts the sticky water barrier around the openings to seal out water leaks. The home shows on TV are about the only ones I have seen do it ? Mom had window world put new windows in her place. They did not do anything to seal around them to the openings. They leaked water around them and damaged the house framing ! They guarantee the windows (maybe) but NOT the installation !

They sealed our windows when they installed them. Just like any other occupation, there are conscientious workers and sloppy workers.

It's Window World. We had them replace all of the windows several years ago, and we liked their siding, too.

Sure is a pretty fescue yard. Hard to keep them that green this time of year around here. I like the other poster would probably wrap the house even though the siding has built in insulation, think you would make money by adding the wrap .

The lawn is my wife's project. It's a fine blade fescue, and we have underground sprinklers. But, it's rained lately, too.

To answer others, the house will be wrapped. I'll post some pics when it's done.

I would do the foam backed if doing again, make sure and wrap house.

The Window World salesman told me that actually the foam is to give the siding more substance and more resistance to impact damage. Any increase in R value is a bonus.

This house already has 6" outside walls and extra insulation, but this might help a bit more. When my wife and I were both commuting to work, I'd be the last out in the morning and she'd be the first back in the afternoon. When I'd leave, I'd turn the thermostat back to 64 and when she'd come back in the afternoon it would still be 66 degrees in the house, even in the dead of winter, so you knew the furnace hadn't even run all day. Back then, we'd get by on about 800-900 gallons of propane per year with the furnace, water heater, and kitchen range all on propane. Now that she's retired and I'm working out of a home office we heat the house all day and our propane usage is up to about 1100 gallons per year.
