Baffle Venting and Blown Fiberglass
Smooooooth is how are guys do it. This is typical of our Coastal field guys.. This is a craft, not easy to do. Anyone can blow in, but blowing it in level and quickly is learned over time!
Make sure your coverage is uniform!
Sure there can be some humps and dips... not that we do it the way... but it can happen. make sure you have an even thermal boundary!
Air Seal than Insulate!
