Air sealing the bottoms of walls
We are finishing up a gut renovation of a house and sheet rock has just been hung. I was wondering whether or not I should try to air seal the space between the bottom of the sheet rock and the floor. I’ve found some differing opinions on whether or not to do this and how to go about it and I was hoping that some of you might want to weigh in. Right now the walls are insulated with unfaced roxul mineral wool. The exterior walls have old aluminum siding that will need to be replaced in a few years and no house wrap. To me, it looks like this space might leak a lot of air and be a source of dust entering the house from inside the walls. Thanks for any responses.
