Preserve The Attic's Airflow: Covering up the soffit vents with loose fill or batts, which can happen if you stuff insulation along the eaves, is a huge no-no. The airflow from the soffits to the ridge vent keeps the roof cool and prevents ice dams, and the material will block that flow. For the same reason, insulation shouldn't touch the roof's underside. Staple plastic or foam baffles to the roof sheathing, near the eaves, to keep the material away.
