Advice on how to properly air seal/insulate a covered patio ceiling
Looking for some advice on a new construction build in Climate Zone 5. Attached is a picture of my covered patio with attic space above it. We plan on finishing the room above at some point in the future, so I want to get the details right now.
Does anyone have any advice on how to get this ceiling sealed the right away? I know I’m going to need at a minimum R-30 insulation (its sort of like a garage with living space above you think about it) but what about sealing to minimize the air infiltration? Your thoughts would be appreciated.
