    Termites! All our experience are second hand, thank God.

    Screw jacks are a safer choice. A jack that is holding up the roof should not be brought down by a leak. Just sayin’.

    I was hoping Luddy had a secret family stashed in the garage.

    A couple of jacks with the right stakes, and they can afford a new home!

    This one hit too close to home! Wow. My wife and I just completed replacing the entire subfloor including ALL the floor joists in a 900 square foot rental we bought years ago. It’s a 1943 farmhouse a foot off the ground. The place spent 18 months on 8 jacks while we worked our way around it twice: Once for the joists and again for the sub floor and insulation. Saved 10k just in doing the jacking ourselves. The rot from years of moist air under the house had turned the 2" thick sill plates to sponge and dust. In places we literally swept them away with a broom. At least 2 floor joists snapped when we stepped on them once they didn’t have plywood helping hold them together. Still have the scars on my shins from scraping them when the things went out from under me.

    Uh oh, termites are never a good thing to find unless you’re an aardvark.

    My barbershop is in a home. Has a porch. The son cut down a tree and stacked the wood on the porch. I go in winter and they’re burning green wood in the fireplace!! I informed them that they have to wait till the wood seasons and to get it off the porch before they get termites. People love to do stuff without knowing what they are doing.

    My son had cardboard boxes in his garage. He moved them one day and they were eat up by termites. Fortunately they went for the boxes instead of the house.

    Well, SJWs think they don’t need no man, so get a could of Jills to hold up the roof.

    Funny, when Arlo talks about Dick, Janis doesn’t think of it as a man’s name.

    Who says we don’t know? We also know what a miter saw is, a center finder, a joiner and planer, and what biscuits are for. We also can change a head gasket on our cars, know what tappets are, and know to NOT hide a junction box behind drywall when we rewire the basement rec room. Next question? lol

    Bit disappointing. From yesterdays cliffhanger, I was expecting a rat or something ran up Arlo’s pant leg.

    I know its only a comic, Arlo are you sure this is something you want to do yourself? Most garages are attached to the house, if you get it wrong and the roof collapses you could also do major damage to the house.

    If Arlo had put Janis INSIDE the garage, THEN told her the problem, her reaction would’ve raised the roof without jacks.

    Arlo’s system is actually much easier than convincing the termites to spit out what they ate and put it back where it came from.

    Never have anything in direct contact with the ground and touching the wood siding on the house. Got a deck? Make sure there’s no wood-to-ground contact in the posts or they’ll travel straight up inside them to your house. Have the deck end an inch away from the house. Spent $79k two years ago repairing termite damage, had no idea there was even any problem till I leaned on the outside a moment and the wall gave inward.
