I recently insulated my attic. The angle portion ((12-12 PITCH) from floor to ceilings was sprayed with corbond. I was responsible for insulating the ceiling and exterior walls. I use kaft faced R-13, in some areas I had to cut and fit, and was not able to get it stapled so there is not a seal in all areas. Should I use vapor barrier on the walls over the Kraft faced, or is this not recommended. By the way the ceiling was done withR30 non-faced with a 6-mil vapor barrier.

red tuck/sheathing tape on the unstapled bit. but craft face batts allow moisture to go through easier than 6 mil vapor barrier, especially due to all the joins.
