Sealing the outside walls is like putting a wind breaker on your home to prevent uncontrolled ventilation. A Right Choice new home uses the following methods to protect specific areas:
- Caulk the bottom plate to the floor
- Seal all exterior wire penetrations and receptacles
- Seal the outside sheathing between all seams
- Caulk and seal areas where two wood pieces join
- Seal around windows
- Sheathing and blocking air from the knee wall and the floor insulation above the garage.
