McKinney Chimney Repair
A Crack or Worse, in the Chimney of Your McKinney Home, is a Disaster Waiting to Happen

What causes chimney damage? That is a good question. Many things can stress or damage your chimney, including natural wear and tear, the amount and type of wood burned, birds, and other animals, and the most significant cause are the elements. McKinney, TX is known for rain, lightning, hail, tornadoes, and intense sun and heat. Weather-related damage builds up as the chimney ages and will eventually take its toll. Every home in McKinney will need some type of chimney repair.
Additionally, some chimneys are built with brick and mortar. Bricks have a life span of up to 100 years; however, the mortar needs attention far before then. Sweeps and Ladders is highly skilled in masonry and understands what is required to return your chimney back to normal.
As noted, Sweeps n Ladders is more than chimney repair. We can restore cracked or missing bricks, replace crumbling mortar, repair the firebox, repair or replace the chimney cap, whole chimney rebuilds, chimney remodels, and more.
