Seal Soffit Baffles
Still working on our remodel. Trying to get the attic done this week so we can have it blown in with cellulose and get the heat going.
Attic floor has all be air sealed. We put long Accuvent soffit baffles in from the exterior and they need to be stapled to the roof deck from the attic/interior.
How important is it go back over these with can foam to air seal the edges? They are pretty tight in place, but obviously there will be small gaps. Our roof pitch is pretty low so it won’t be fun, haha.
Also, due to the low pitch roof the end of the baffle is about 18″ off the top of the attic floor. Will cellulose we need about 16-18″ to get R60. How far down from the top of the baffle should we bring the insulation up to?
