To Baffle or Not to Baffle
I was installing baffles so I can install more insulation in the attic and make sure the ventilation was adequate. The soffitt on the outside is perferated so I should have seen some daylight when I pulled away the insulation from the wall/roof area. But I noticed where the trusses met the wall at the soffitt area I could not see any daylight except for like 10 places. In fact all I saw in the other areas was basically a 2x4 nailer in between the trusses tight up against the roof sheathing. I installed the baffles where I saw day light coming in and did not do the rest. I have gable end vents plus a ridge vent. Should I bother to install baffles through out the remaining spaces before I add the additional insulation or am I wasting my time with the baffles?
