About Baffle Installation

Attic ventilation is as vital as attic insulation in making your home your home. Every efficient house ventilation system has exhaust and intake vents. Soffit or intake vents are located at the soffit or eaves. Cool air from the outside enters your home through these vents. Exhaust vents are responsible for removing heated and stale air from the dwelling.

Insulation baffles are necessary for proper intake ventilation. Fresh air entering through intake vents is frequently obstructed by attic insulation and other garbage. Insulation baffles are intended to keep this from happening.

How Is Baffle Installation In Ontario

Insulation baffles range in price from $0.75 to $2 per square foot, including materials and labor. These perforated baffles are available in 16-inch and 24-inch diameters.

This is how professionals often install rafter vents.

  • Find external soffit vents. Check that they aren’t just vent screens.
  • Check that you have selected the correct size baffles based on the rafter size.
  • Remove any soffit obstructions, such as old insulation.
  • Remove the fascia board as well as the vent screens.
  • Slide the baffle over the insulation and staple it in place.

Types Of Attic Baffles

Foam Rafter Baffles: These attic baffles direct hot and cold air to roof vents, preventing insulation from obstructing the soffit area of the roof. They resemble egg boxes and include additional cones for opening the soffit vent. Polystyrene rafter vents are also lightweight, flexible, inexpensive, and can be installed with staples.

Attic Baffles Made of Cardboard or Plywood: Cardboard baffles work similarly to extruded foam baffles. They are made of corrugated stock that can be readily folded and stapled to prevent insulation from overflowing into the soffit area. In addition, cardboard absorbs moisture, which aids in the reduction of mold and mildew.

Plastic Attic Baffles:
High-impact polystyrene (HIP) makes plastic attic baffles. They do not absorb moisture or mold and can sustain insulating pressure. Furthermore, plastic attic baffles have a variable design that may accommodate different heel heights.
