I am getting new roof in a week. I have 4 feet of sloped ceiling that now is filled solid with fiberglass batt insulation. My roofer will pull up some of the 1 x 8 deck boards so I can install smart baffles. Rafters are 2 x 8 so that will only leave me with 5 1/2 inches for insulation. Will that be enough?
I am getting ready to air seal the balance of the attic today. The 700 square foot roof has soffit vents and a ridge vent but the soffit vents haven’t worked at all because of the rafter bays plugged with insulation.
Thanks for any advice you can provide,
