which would you do first?

1. upgrade conventional vinyl siding  to insulated vinyl siding (adds
an additional  4.0 R-Factor) on a frame house.

2. upgrade 6 dual pane conventional windows and a patio door(approx. .
60 U-Factor)  to energy star argon filled dual/triple pane windows
(about .25  U-Factor)

Replace the windows first. Most energy loss is through the windows. And
replacing windows can mess up the siding.

  Which one is needed most  ?
1. Is your vinyl siding ugly or falling off ?
2. Are your windows dripping wet all winter & rotting away ?
  6 of how many windows ?
Are these 2 jobs similar cost  .. ?
