Vented crawlspace rim joist insulation
At some point I plan to encapsulate my vented crawlspace, but atm It seems it might end up year or so before I do it.
I cant seem to find info if it is okay to cut and cobble or spray foam the rim joist for air leaks, etc.. or if it would even matter if the crawlspace is still vented.
It seems it would still let air leak in to the walls, so it looks to be worth doing.
Can you seal/ insulate a vented crawlspace? or will it cause issue should it not be encapsulated?
Feel free to shoot me articles or books, or keywords to look up.
Thanks again for the info.
