Flash-and-batt quality control advice
Have started the batt placing process with R-23s over 2 inches of foam in our 2 by 6 bays, as Dana suggested.
These are 15.5 inches wide in a 13.5 wide inch space… some we trimmed a smidge (half inch).
Is this how it should look? Should we add screws every 18 inches along the rafters and string wire in between? The wire they sell for insulation doesn’t seem like it would work because it’s tension based, and obviously we have no rafter space left.
We’re just worrying a little as the batts seem to be fraying some in the effort to get them in.
