    I am installing batts with vapor barrier attatched. stuffing insulation around the windows has no paper on it. the widest is probably 2 inches. I am wondering if it is necessary to cover it with something? plastic which I have or what? can good tape work? or nothing at all?

    Thanks

    Hello PapaSon:
    Nothing at all is the best choice; there is a flashing on the outside to cover the area anyway.
