John White of Dr. Sweep said, “From the moment Dr. Sweep’s owner started working at a chimney company, something within him clicked. He realized how much he enjoyed being out daily, meeting homeowners and their families, and solving their chimney and fireplace problems and issues.

With time, he realized that customers deserved a higher quality of workmanship and customer service than presented at the company where he worked. Thus, he felt inspired to form his own company in 1999, which has grown from one location to more than 10 locations and dispatch centers.

Dr. Sweep started exclusively as a chimney sweep, inspection, and repair business. As his team discovered homeowners’ additional needs, the company evolved into also cleaning and repairing fireplaces, roofs and gutters, and porches.

Cracks and gaps in concrete are more than just an eyesore. Water can get into the joints, freeze and then expand, making the cracks even more prominent. Gaps against a house can direct water against the foundation, leading to more problems. Once a year, go around your home and look for these gaps and joints to prevent problems. Concrete cracks of any type are the bane of many homeowners. They can be in flat slabs, retaining walls, foundation walls, and steps. Concrete has incredible compressive strength, but usually, only ten percent of that is in tension when you try to pull or stretch it apart. This lack of tensile strength explains, for the most part, why concrete cracks.”
