The historic district of downtown McKinney is a dying breed in America. It is one of several downtown areas where so many buildings still sport 19th-century brickwork. Not surprisingly, many property owners in McKinney TX want to incorporate this into their buildings or add to existing brick structures. After doing so, brick then requires maintenance to retain its old charm and strength.
Unfortunately, stone masonry is not as common a skill today as it was even a hundred years ago. Very few professionals can claim to have mastery over the necessary skill sets. While we continue to learn every day, we take pride in counting our contractors among the best of these professionals.
Our McKinney TX Services
Over the past few hundred years, Americans have steadily moved away from brick-and-mortar to wood. However, for those proud owners of brick structures — or who wish to be — we are happy to serve you. Our team is also skilled with concrete, which is another stone masonry art form. See below for details on the specific services we provide:
Matching Mortar: Completing brick repairs is an exciting experience for property managers. However, few enjoy the eyesore of the new miss-matched mortar that fails to blend in with the rest. Don’t let contractors convince you this is “okay.” We can match the mortar for you.
Chimney Repairs: The most common brick repairs homes tend to need is the chimney. This repair is especially important because delaying it can mean either fire or water damage to your home. The repairs we do most often include chimney cap repair, brick tucking, and flue repair.
Brick Restoration: If you own a larger building and wish to breathe new life into it, brick restoration is important. We incorporate as much of the old materials as possible to save on cost, preserve a building’s history, and maintain its old charm.
Brick Masonry Construction: If you would like to construct a new building of brick from the ground up, we are eager to take on the project. We also take on brick landscaping projects, such as freestanding arches, pavers, and site walls.
Screen Walls: We can create screen walls on your property in either brick or concrete. Some clients have even asked for an artful combination of both. Use screen walls indoor and outside to create privacy, separate spaces, and offer shade.
Retaining Walls: If you need your walls to do more heavy-duty, structural work, we can tackle this as well. Both brick and concrete make good materials for your retaining wall. Not sure if you need one? Consider them for providing structural support to your home and making sloping land more accessible.
Concrete Masonry: Concrete has become a common material choice for builders who prefer simple and contemporary styles. It is also commonly found in spa-style bathrooms, on sidewalks, and in some parking lots.
Masonry Repairs: Whether you need to complete repairs to your concrete or brick structures, we have the necessary skills to get the job done. From broken cobblestone driveways to cracked concrete basements, we can remedy the situation.
