Air sealing near soffit question
Hi there everyone, first time poster here. I am in the process of air sealing my attic, in addition to installing baffles so that I can add insulation on top of the existing fiberglass batts that are in between the joists in my attic.
My question is, where exactly should I air seal near the soffit vents and baffles? I have attached a couple of pictures showing what I currently have in my attic. I have pulled away all of the existing fiberglass batts for now. In the pictures I have drawn some red arrows and lines indicating where I was thinking I should air seal with Great Stuff foam, but wanted to confirm with you folks here that this would be a worthwhile exercise. I am already sealing top plates and any other penetrations that I can see on the attic floor, but wasn’t sure what I should seal next to the soffit vent.
Should I also seal around the edges of the baffles themselves?
