A client is working to make his tract-built house as air-tight as possible. Windows and doors will be installed this week, mechanicals are in progress and insulation will start near the end of this week. Drywall is hopeful for the week of 3/14. The builder doesn't typically meet his optimistic schedules but that's what it is right now.
Once windows and doors go in, and hopefully before insulation, my client wants to blower door test so he can seal as much as possible. This test is NOT to collect a number, just find the leakage and fix it. There's about 70 lf of eve (vented soffit) - I think that will be the biggest barrier to get good pressure on the house.
We need a quick and dirty way to block the soffits during the test. I'm thinking to roll scrap fiberglass in trash bags to stuff in the soffit. Is that a good idea or is there a better way? Other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
