What is the best practice for attic air sealing when it's new construction?
In my jurisdiction I have to get my insulation HERS (California's new Home Energy Rating System) inspected before I can install the drywall, and the ceilings will get batt insulation, instead of blow-in. But proper attic air sealing requires that the drywall is already installed, since one of the places you need to hit with the expansion foam is where the ceiling drywall meets the plate. So then, it looks like I'll need to get my insulation inspected, then I will install the drywall, and then I'll have to get up in the attic and pull the insulation off again, so I can properly do the air sealing. That seems like an inefficient practice, and I'm wondering if there is an alternative work sequence that I'm not considering.
