McKinney is a city in and the county seat of Collin County, Texas, United States. It is Collin County's third-largest city, after Plano and Frisco. A suburb of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, McKinney is about 32 miles (51 km) north of Dallas.

The U.S. Census Bureau listed McKinney as the nation's fastest-growing city from 2000 to 2003 and again in 2006, among cities with more than 50,000 people. In 2007, it was ranked second-fastest growing among cities with more than 100,000 people and in 2008 as third-fastest. In the 2010 census, the city's population was 131,117, making it Texas's 19th-most populous city. The population estimate produced by the city as of 2019 was 199,177, which made it Texas's 16th-most populous city. In 2020, its population was 195,308. As of May 2017, McKinney was the third-fastest growing city in the United States.

The Census Bureau defines an urban area of northern Dallas-area suburbs that are separated from the Dallas–Fort Worth urban area, with McKinney and Frisco as the principal cities; the McKinney–Frisco urban area had a population of 504,803 as of the 2020 census, ranked 83rd in the United States.

On March 24, 1849, William Davis, who owned 3,000 acres (12 km) where McKinney now stands, donated 120 acres (0.49 km2) for the townsite. Ten years later, McKinney incorporated, and in 1913, the town adopted the commission form of government.

For its first 125 years, McKinney served as the county's principal commercial center. The county seat provided farmers with flour, corn, cotton mills, cotton gins, a cotton compress, and a cottonseed oil mill, as well as banks, churches, schools, newspapers, and from the 1880s, an opera house. Businesses also came to include a textile mill, an ice company, a large dairy, and a garment-manufacturing company. The population grew from 35 in 1848 to 4,714 in 1912. By 1953, McKinney had a population of more than 10,000 and 355 businesses. The town continued to serve as an agribusiness center for the county until the late 1960s.

By 1970, Plano surpassed McKinney in size. McKinney experienced moderate population growth, from 15,193 in the 1970 census to 21,283 in the 1990 census. By the mid-1980s, the town had become a commuter center for residents who worked in Plano and Dallas. In 1985, it had a population of just over 16,000 and supported 254 businesses. Since then, McKinney's rate of increase has been much more dramatic. In the 2000 census, McKinney had grown to 54,369 with 2,005 businesses and in the 2010 census the population had more than doubled to 131,117 residents. The Census Bureau's most recent estimated population for McKinney (July 1, 2015) is 162,898. The most recent population estimate, produced by the city as of January 1, 2019, is 187,802.

Both the city and the county were named for Collin McKinney, signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, and a congressman for the Red River district of the Republic of Texas. He was the author of a bill establishing counties in the northern part of the state.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has an area of 62.9 square miles (162.9 km), of which 0.7 square mile (1.7 km2), or 1.07%, is covered by water.

McKinney is considered part of the humid subtropical region.

It is also part of the Texas blackland prairies, which means it gets hot summers because it is in the Sun Belt. Humidity makes temperatures feel higher, and winters are mild and are usually rainy; snowstorms occasionally occur. Spring is the wettest part of the year, which brings winds from the Gulf Coast.

At the 2010 U.S. census, the city had a population of 131,117 people. In 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau tabulated a population of 195,308, representing continued growth from the city's 2000 population of 54,369.

As of the 2000 U.S. census, 64% of the foreign-born residents of McKinney originated from Mexico. Since 2009, 70% of McKinney's total population born outside of the United States had arrived in the U.S. in the 1990s. In May 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that McKinney was the third fastest-growing city in the United States. It had a 5.9% growth rate between 2015 and 2016.

Of the 68,458 households at the 2019 American Community Survey, 59.8% were married-couples living together. The average household size was 2.88 and the average family size was 3.36.

The average household size was 2.89 and the average family size was 3.29.

In 2010, the median income for a household in the city was $63,366, and for a family was $72,133. Males had a median income of $50,663 versus $32,074 for females. The per capita income for the city was $28,185. About 4.9% of families and 8.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 9.2% of those under age 18 and 7.9% of those age 65 or over. In 2019, the median income in the city increased to $89,828; the mean income was $111,588.

According to the city's 2022 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the top 10 employers in the city are:

According to the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (2016), the city's various funds had $324.6 million in total revenues, $247.9 million in total expenditures, $1.36 billion in total assets, $437.6 million in total liabilities, and $363.9 million in cash and investments.

At the federal level, Texas's U.S. senators are John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. McKinney is in the 3rd Congressional district, which is represented by Keith Self.

The McKinney Police Department is the primary municipal law enforcement agency that serves the city. Chief Joe Ellenburg is the head of the department. As of 2023, the department had 252 sworn peace officers and 81 non-sworn civilian positions.

The department was awarded national accredited status from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and is also a Texas Police Chief's Association Foundation (TPCAF) Recognized Agency, making it only the third agency in Texas to receive both state and national accreditation.

Notable recent incidents in the department's history include the high-profile investigation of the McKinney homicide that claimed the lives of two adults and two high school football players; a 2010 attack on the police department headquarters by a gunman who fired over 100 rifle rounds at the building and employees after attempting to detonate a truck and trailer full of explosives; and protests and media attention after a video was released of the 2015 Texas pool party incident.

 Garage Door Maintenance in McKinney, Texas

Simple Garage Door Maintenance You Can Do Yourself

The garage door is an important part of your home, and it can be a safety hazard if you don't keep it maintained. If you haven't had a professional tune up your garage door in a while, there are some simple maintenance steps you can perform yourself to help improve your safety conditions and decrease repair costs for years to come.

Visual Inspection

A visual inspection of the garage door is a must every six months. Look for peeling, fading or cracking that could affect your curb appeal and cause moisture to leak into your garage. Also, check your weatherstripping for tears or rips that can allow moisture to enter your garage and encourage mold growth.

Adjust the Photo-Eye Sensors

A common problem that causes garage doors to not automatically reverse is a misalignment of the photo-eye sensors. To fix this, remove any debris and clean the sensors. Then, realign them until the indicator light no longer flashes.

Tune Up Your Spring System

The springs on your garage door help it raise and lower. Regularly checking and maintaining the springs can keep them in good condition and extend the lifespan of your door. You can do a simple test to see whether or not your springs are properly balanced by pulling the release handle when you shut the door, then lifting it halfway up. If it stays in place, it's balanced; if it starts to slowly rise or drop, the springs are worn and need to be replaced.

Grease Your Overhead Springs and Chain or Screw

Keeping your garage door parts greased up will help them last longer and prevent corrosion. You can do this by spraying a white lithium grease, available at your local garage door specialist, on the opener's chain or screw. Then, you can add some spray lubricant to the springs.

Inspect the Tracks and Lift Cables

When your garage door is closed, it rests on the horizontal tracks that are attached to the wall on either side of your opening. The tracks can be damaged from rust or other damage, and they'll affect how your door opens and closes. Inspect the tracks for bending, rust or other signs of damage and contact a professional to repair them if necessary.

Install a Weather Seal Strip

The rubber weather seal strips on your garage door's bottom help keep water and other outside elements out of your garage. They're available at hardware and home improvement stores in different sizes, and can be installed in just a few minutes. They're a simple way to save energy and keep out unwanted drafts, insects and rodents.

Inspect Your Hinges and Vertical Tracks

When the hinges on your overhead door panels bend or sag, you'll need to replace them with new ones. Inspect the jamb brackets and strut that connect the vertical tracks to the framework on either side of your garage opening for excessive wear or dents.

If you notice a gap or tear in the weather seals or weather stripping, call a professional to have them replaced. This will ensure that you're not having to pay for repairs in the future, and will help keep out unwanted insects, critters and water from entering your garage.

 Garage Door Openers in McKinney, Texas

Choosing the Right Garage Door Opener

A Garage Door Opener is an important component of any home. They make it easy to get in and out of the garage while also keeping your family safe. They are also convenient and affordable to own.

There are many different kinds of Garage Door Openers available on the market today. Choosing which one is right for you can be confusing, but there are a few things to consider when making the decision.

Drive Options: There are four main drive types to choose from – chain, belt, screw and jackshaft. Each type operates differently and achieves the same goal – opening and closing your garage door.

Chain: The most common and least expensive, these openers use a metal chain to raise and lower the door. However, this can lead to noise issues and requires maintenance to keep it working properly.

Belt: Similar to automobile tires, these openers use a rubber belt to move the door up and down. They are quieter than chain or screw drives and also last longer.

Jackshaft: These garage doors are a bit noisier than belt or screw drives, but they are less costly and can save some vertical space in your garage. They can also be installed in places that are difficult to reach by other garage openers, such as over a low-ceilinged room or at the top of a steeply pitched roof.

Power: If you are concerned about power outages, then look for a garage opener with battery backup. These models will continue to work after the power is out, and some of them come with solar panels for extra energy storage.

Motor: Some openers use DC-type motors, which are quieter and more reliable than AC-type motors. They have variable speeds and can start up slowly and then slow down as the door opens to prevent it from slamming.

Security: Some garage door openers also include a rolling code feature that changes the code each time it is opened or closed. This helps to prevent thieves from hacking into your system and opening the door in your absence.

Keyless Entry: A lot of newer openers have keyless entry, which allows you to use a keypad or remote to open the garage door from inside the house. Some even have Wi-Fi capabilities and can be controlled with a smartphone app.

Safety Features: The most modern garage door openers are equipped with sensors that will detect objects in the way and reverse the doors automatically. This can be helpful if you have young children or pets, for instance.

Protector System: Some garage door openers have a protector system that projects a light beam across the entire door opening. This beam is used to detect any objects or people in the way.

If the beam is interrupted, it will automatically reverse the doors and close them. This helps prevent accidents and injuries.

You can also find garage door openers with a photo eye or safety reversing sensor, which uses a light beam to detect anything in the way of the door opening. This feature can be a lifesaver if you have to evacuate in an emergency.

 Garage Door Repair in McKinney, Texas

When you’re looking for a local garage door repair company, it’s important to do your research. Check their reviews, find out if they offer payment plans and look for one that has strong work guarantees.


Pros and Cons of Doing Garage Door Repair by Yourself

If you’re handy and enjoy working with your hands, do-it-yourself garage door repair might be a good option for you. It’s a great way to learn about the mechanics of your door and its parts, and you can save money on labor costs.

Some repairs are pretty easy to do, while others are more complex. Before you start, make sure your tools are the right size and you have enough time to complete the job. You should also have a list of tasks and a timeline for when you need to get them done so you can stay on top of it all.

For example, if your garage door is shaking when you open or close it, that could be a sign that the tracks are misaligned or damaged. You can try straightening them with a soft mallet, or you can call a garage door professional to do it for you.

Another common problem is that your garage door doesn’t seem to move when you press the button. You may need to adjust the limits on your opener to make it move a little more slowly when you open or close it.

This problem could be caused by a broken spring, which will need to be replaced. Replacement springs can cost anywhere from $100 to $200 depending on their size, material and weight.

If the doors of your garage aren’t properly sealed, they can let in drafts and heat that can increase your energy bill. Replacing them with insulated polyurethane panels will help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, saving you a lot of money over time.

It’s also easier to replace a door with multiple cracked or rotting panels than it is to repair a single panel. If the damage to your garage is extensive, you’ll want to think about replacing it altogether so that you don’t have to worry about cracks spreading and compromising the structural integrity of your garage door.

Lastly, hiring a professional is always safer than trying to fix your own garage door. You don’t want to end up hurting yourself or your family. You should always follow the proper safety precautions and use the right tools when fixing your own garage door.

 Gutter Installation in McKinney, Texas

Gutters are a vital component of any home that’s in need of waterproofing. They channel rain and snow off the roof, preventing water damage to foundations, basements, and landscaping. They also help keep your home free of mold and mildew.


What to Expect from a Professional Gutter Installation

When gutters need to be replaced, hiring a professional is the best option. This will ensure that your new system is installed correctly and safely. It can also save you money in the long run by avoiding costly repairs down the road.

The first step in a gutter replacement is measuring your current gutters and finding the right lengths for your roof. Ideally, gutters will extend about 10 feet from the center of the house to both ends and will have a gradual slope toward the downspout outlet.

Gutter slope is one of the most important elements of a seamless gutter installation, as it creates an ideal drainage system. If the slope is too steep, water may pool in the gutter, instead of flowing into the downspout. If the slope is too gentle, water will flow onto the house and foundation.

A reputable gutter installer will take the time to measure your existing system and calculate the new sizes needed for your roof. They will also be able to determine whether or not your current downspouts are working properly and if they need replacing.

Once your gutters have been measured and ordered, it’s time to install them. Most reputable installers use special screws to affix your gutters to the fascia boards of your home, so you won’t have to worry about nails damaging your siding or other home materials.

Next, a pro will measure and cut your downspouts to match the size of your new gutters. They will also attach downspout elbows to the end of your gutter to direct water away from your foundation and prevent further water damage.

If your home is older or has a low-sloped roof, a pro will recommend installing gutter extensions at each corner of the house. This will increase the length of your downspouts by about half a foot and allow for greater flow.

The pro will also measure and install downspouts at the correct pitch for the roof. If the gutter is too steep, it can cause water to overflow and overrun the downspout, causing it to leak and deteriorate faster than a more gradual slope.

A good gutter installation pro will also know how to attach the downspouts at the proper angle so that they can direct water efficiently and safely. They will also make sure to leave a sufficient amount of space between the downspout and your foundation for the water to flow away from it.

During the gutter installation process, make sure that the pro doesn’t install any gutters higher than your roof shingles. This will prevent rain from running down the shingle edge, which can cause a drip that could lead to water damage inside your home.

A professional gutter installation company will be able to install seamless gutters that look great and work well on your property. They can also be trusted to perform the job in a safe manner and follow all local building codes and regulations. In addition, they will have the tools and equipment to complete the job quickly and efficiently. They are usually bonded and insured, and most carry warranties on their work.

 Roof Repair in McKinney, Texas

How to Keep Your Roof in Good Shape

A roof is an important part of a home. If it becomes damaged, the home can suffer from severe structural issues. It can also promote moisture buildup that can damage wall paint or furniture, and even short circuit electrical wiring. Whether your roof is old or new, there are ways to keep it in good shape.

A leak is one of the most common signs that your roof needs repair. If you spot a leak, try to find the source by using a garden hose. Soak the area just above the drip, then move the hose up to the roof.

Roofing materials vary in cost and durability. Asphalt shingles are on the low end of the spectrum, while metal and slate tiles are more expensive.

The material you choose for your roof affects how much you’ll pay to have it repaired or replaced. Some materials, like clay tile and cedar shakes, are more likely to deteriorate than others, so you may need to replace them sooner than you think.

You may also need to have a roof repair if it is showing signs of wear or if you live in an area that experiences severe storms. For example, hail can cause a significant amount of damage to your roof and make it impossible to repair it on your own.

When you do have to have repairs done, it’s important to do them right the first time. That way you can minimize the chance for future issues to occur and save money in the long run.

A professional Texas roof repair company can do all of the work, saving you time and money in the long run. They’ll be able to get to the source of the problem and get it fixed properly the first time.

The best roofers will be able to inspect your entire roof and determine what repairs need to be made. This includes taking a look at the soffits and gutters, as well as the decking and insulation. They’ll also be able to spot any soft spots that need to be replaced, which will help prevent rot and mold.

If you’re having a roof replaced, you should also make sure it has proper drainage and ventilation. That way, any water that does get into the home won’t cause any serious damage or mold to develop.

Check for cracked or broken seams at the top of plastic roof vents. If you see any cracks, then they’re probably a sign that the vent needs to be replaced. You’ll also want to examine the vent for pulled or missing nails at its base. These are usually easy to work loose, so you can pull the vent free.

Shiners (or sags) on the roof are another sign that you might need to have your roof repaired. This is because nails that were missed by a carpenter when they nailed the sheathing to the rafters are often left behind, and when they’re cold, they freeze, causing moisture to condense on them.

 Roof Replacement in McKinney, Texas

A roof is an important part of any home. It protects your home from weather, and it helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. A roof also adds to the overall look of your home.

What to Expect from Roof Replacement

Whether your roof is old and in need of replacement or you are planning a renovation, it is important to know what to expect before the job starts. This will help you prepare for the big day and make sure your project goes smoothly, resulting in an excellent finished product.

Your Roof’s Aesthetic Needs

If you are replacing the roof on your home, the style of shingles you choose can make or break the overall look of your new roof. There are many types of shingles, ranging from low-cost asphalt to luxury copper and metal. The materials you choose will have a huge impact on your new roof’s aesthetic and cost, so it’s important to consider what you want your roof to look like before making any decisions.

The Cost of Your Roof

Several factors can affect the cost of your roof replacement, including the size of your home, the type of roofing material you select, and the complexity of the job. You’ll also want to think about the type of slope and roof pitch that your home has, since these will play a role in your choice of shingles or other materials.

The Aesthetic of Your New Roof

You may not be thinking about the aesthetic of your roof, but a great looking roof will not only protect your home but also boost your property’s value. If you are unsure how to create an attractive roof, contact a professional roofing company and ask for advice on the best materials and options for your unique property.

How Often Should I Replace My Roof?

How long your roof will last depends on the material you use and how well it is constructed. Composite shingles typically last between 15 and 30 years, wood shingles will last much longer, and rubber and metal roofs can last for up to 50 or more years.

Your roof’s square footage will also have an impact on your roof’s cost, so it’s important to get a good estimate of how much square footage you have before getting an estimate for the project. This can be a challenging task, but it’s an essential step in the process.

Measure the Footprint of Your Roof

Taking measurements can be time-consuming and confusing, but it’s a vital step in the roof replacement process. Count the steps you take when walking up and down your roof to find out its footprint (you can even use a measuring tape).

Next, draw your roof in flat planes using a pencil and a notepad. You’ll need to label each plane with a number and the length and width of that plane. If you don’t label each plane properly, your contractor won’t be able to build your roof back up correctly.

 Roofing Maintenance in McKinney, Texas

Why Roofing Maintenance Is Necessary

Your home's roof is one of the most important and vulnerable components of your property. Its main function is to protect your family from the elements. Roofing maintenance is necessary to make sure that your roof serves its purpose for many years to come.

Roofing Maintenance is essential for a variety of reasons, including:

Minor damages can quickly turn into major ones if left unattended. This is why it's vital to regularly inspect your roof for any small issues, such as a leak or missing shingles. These problems can cause rot and structural damage that will require costly repairs or replacements.

The most effective way to maintain your roof is through an annual maintenance plan with a licensed and experienced professional roofing company. These maintenance plans offer a guaranteed inspection that's sure to catch any minor issues before they become serious, costly and damaging.

Flashing: A common problem that causes water damage is broken or rusted flashings, which are pieces of metal installed on the edges and joints of a roof system to prevent water from entering the home through the roof. If you see cracked or damaged flashing, have it replaced immediately to prevent further water damage.

Keeping Your Roof Free of Debris: Over time, debris can cause moisture to build up on your roof and may even encourage mold growth and rot. It's important to clean your roof and remove any debris that's accumulated on it, especially in the winter.

Regular cleaning of the gutters and downspouts is also key to maintaining a healthy roof. This will help prevent ice dams and other damage that can result from water sitting on the roof for too long.

It is also a good idea to check your attic regularly for any signs of leaks or water damage. These problems are not always obvious but can be spotted by discoloration or puddles of water inside your attic.

You can also check your soffit for any signs of moisture or leaks. These are often caused by clogged gutters or drains, so you'll want to clear them out as soon as possible to prevent further damage from occurring.

Trees and limbs can also be a hazard to your roof. Trimming branches that are too close to the roof can be a great way to avoid damage in the event of a storm.

Lastly, have your roof ventilation system checked and maintained by a professional. This can help keep energy costs down and allow your roof to better handle weather extremes.

If you notice any of the above conditions, it is recommended to hire a professional roofer right away to fix or replace the damaged part of your roof. A professional will be able to ensure that your roof is in tip-top shape and ready for the upcoming seasons.

A well-maintained roof will last for years to come, so it is worth investing in a comprehensive roofing maintenance plan that includes guaranteed inspections and repairs. This plan will also save you money by preventing large and expensive repairs later on.
