I bought house that is almost 160 years old and it had zero insulation. I just recently had spray foam installed in the attic, new energy efficient windows installed and now I am considering insulating the walls. I am not sure what to go with. I was told open-cell injection foam would my best bet, but I am considering taking off the siding and having closed-cell foam sprayed. I live in New Orleans and it gets HOT here.

My concern is I'd like to remove the lap siding, apply spray foam, and reuse any pieces of the siding that aren't damaged in the removal process. I am just not sure if this is the right to do to this house.

Any advice would be great.
Thanks in advance
