For 26 years, JLC has provided professional builders and remodelers with the most practical information, tips, and techniques available in print. Now, with a redesign and re-launch of JLC Online, we’ve taken important steps toward creating the best resource for information exchange among construction professionals on the Web.

Here are just a few of the features and benefits you’ll find on the new site:

  • Fresh content -- including videos, slideshows, and forum discussions -- from JLC and other sources posted every day
  • Much more free content, including free access to most JLCArchive articles
  • Expanded coverage of building products and tools by professional reviewers
  • Relevant news about the industry issues that affect the way you build and do business
  • World-class search engine, more relevant search results drawn from the JLC Archive and Forums
  • Improved navigation, simplified browsing by topic
  • Online access to the most current JLC print articles with subscription purchase
  • Single sign-on (one login for access to premium subscriber content, JLC Forums, and commenting tools)

  We’re eager to hear what you think, and how we can improve on what we’ve begun. Please email us at  -- JLC Editors
