Exterior retrofits on walls, roofs, windows and foundations can be expensive and may occur at a time when a building has failures or is in desperate need of maintenance. For a relatively incremental cost, energy efficiency can be included as part of the exterior remodel. Incorporating energy efficiency into exterior retrofits can be achieved with minor design changes and put money back in your pocket while making occupants more comfortable. Guidance on product selection, costs, and maintenance will be provided for re-siding, window retrofits, and roof repairs. Examples of HUD-sponsored projects will be discussed.
