Building Clinics

GOT TALENT? We're on the hunt for our next LIVE presenter to join the lineup...

JLC LIVE building clinics are the heart and soul of the exhibit hall. These interactive demonstrations are presented by top industry experts in a real-world jobsite setting. Live building clinics, or some call them workshops, cover a range of topics including drywall, high performance, air quality, deck building, window installation, stair building and much more.

We're amidst creating incredible schedules for 2023... here's a teaser of what's in store!

Deck Workshop

To meet homeowners' expectations and code officials' demands, decks need to be more than just beautiful. Decks must be constructed safe and long lasting.
