Should I shoot foam sealant here?


I am in the process of replacing my fascia trim and noticed that I can see some light shinning through the wooden blocks that are nailed between the rafters when in my attic.



Even though my eaves don't have any soffits and are enclosed with stucco, perhaps this is a good time to shoot some foam between the edges of those blocks (from the outside)?

Are you sure you shouldn't be working on venting.

There are no soffit vents anywhere in the eaves. Originally the house relied on the gable end vents for both intake and exhaust. Since, replacing the roof, additional intake and exhaust vents were put into place.


These old houses were always built a little "drafty", but I doubt they were relying on that for air intake needs.
