Hey guys. Climate zone 5/6 in Northeast Ohio. I decided to air seal all gaps from studs, sheathing (60’s-70’s fibery type board with cedar siding), and plates with beads of canned foam and caulk. I’m using r-15 rockwool unfaced batts with the Certainteed Membrain on the inside as the vapor retarder. I used styrofoam soffit baffles in the eaves but had to staple them to the top plate due to the pitch of my roofs. I’m putting a lot of effort into air sealing and was wondering if the space under the soffit baffles, curving around the top plate under the staples, and getting behind the certainteed would be a problem. Thanks.
