    We all know that OSB s not a good choice, it's a cheap choice. In western Canada we know that OSB on northern exposure walls may not last very long, and maybe a bit longer on other exposures. But if you don't value money health, and time, ignore what I just said.

    On the Windows quality, its the glass sealed units that I see failing the most. Fiber Glass and Aluminum frames can last the longest without much maintenance. If you need to paint a quality Acrylic pain will last the longest, often after 20 years they look brand new.

    Martin,
    Thanks for sharing,

    Martin,

    Thanks for sharing, that was fun and informative.

    Do you ever travel to the northern middle part of the country for these types of Q&A?

    Greg,
    I'm glad that you found that the video was fun. Here is a link to one of the sessions from last year: Stump the Energy Nerd 2013, Part 1.

    Q. "Do you ever travel to the northern middle part of the country for these types of Q&A?"

    A. I am occasionally invited to speak at conferences related to green construction or energy efficiency. When my schedule permits, I accept such invitations -- usually two or three times a year.

    Thanks Martin.

    Would there be anyway to find out if you are going to be in the local area ahead of time?

    Greg,
    I have no plans at this time to visit the Midwest. My next public speaking engagement is scheduled for . I will be speaking in French.

    In most cases, my speaking engagements are announced ahead of time on GBA (either in a news story or as a post on the Q&A pages). So if you read GBA regularly, you should hear about these events.
