Removing stapled kraft-faced fiberglass batts
I have an attic with Kraft Faced Fiberglass Batts that are stapled between the joists. I’m looking to air seal the attic floor but this will entail ripping the kraft facing in order to remove them.
Am I better off leaving it alone and not ripping the paper (I know it acts as a vapor retarder) or does it not really matter if I rip the paper where it’s stapled and then just place the batts back in between the joists after air sealing?
Thanks for the input!
