Places where I should not put batt insulation
Hey everyone I know I’ve asked a lot of questions on here but this should be my last, once I finish this insulation myself I’m paying people to finish the rest, thanks for all your help
i know that I can’t put batt insulation on the rim joist in my crawl space, with that said are there any other areas that I shouldn’t put batt insulation?
2 particular spots I have in question were these pictures, the top of my knee wall and a 2×12 on my second floor where the rest of my roof is secured to. Any danger of moisture build up around these 2 spots like the rim joist if I stuff insulation around them? There will also be a gap behind my insulation all the way to the top of the roof 1.25 inches – 1.5 inches for air flow
thanks again for all the informantion
