Tools and Supplies:
Biodegradable plastic container
Durham's Water Putty™
Kilz primer.
Ladder (extension) 
Paint brush
Paint can opener (Free from Home Depot)
Painter's scraper
Paint tray

This post shows the four steps to repair roof line termite damage.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Durham's Water Putty™ and biodegradable plastic container, and painter's scraper. This job was a bit more difficult because it was only on one corner of the house. An extension ladder was used to get to the corner of the house. The tiles were not  removed per the customer but some of the wood was damaged. The painter's stated they would handle that damage themselves.
