BafflesIn any roof system with an attic, ventilation is crucial as it allows airflow to come through the attic and exit out the roof vents, which manage hot air and moisture. Installing baffles between the roof's rafters and trusses will stop the insulation from blocking the airflow through the attic space. Baffles should be installed in the attic wherever there is an intake vent (soffit vent) to ensure proper airflow in the attic. The devil is in the details of the installation, though. Installation guidance can help ensure that the baffles are correctly installed.
