Searching for “pergola builders Kansas City” or “pergola builders near me”? Having a pergola in your outdoor living area can provide an open feature that will give containment to a certain area, giving you and your family and friends a dedicated area to relax. From a design perspective it really does parcel an area, and makes for a great aesthetic home feature. Owning a pergola in your backyard will more than likely prevent harsh sun rays, and yet allow open light and the breeze that you still wish to have on a warm day.

Why Pergolas in Kansas City?

Pergola structures are built many different ways, but their designs are simply for providing minor shade from harsh sunlight and yet giving a structure to be covered yet giving an open feel. The way that the pergola boards are set is often determined by the sun and the of direction of light and heat during different times of the day.

If you had harsh sunlight during the evening hours, it is best to structure the pergola in a way that would protect you from that direction of the west and provide the shield from the direct sunlight during those hours. On the contrary, if you have harsh sunlight during the morning then the best way to build that would be to structure the boards took them back the direct sunlight to the east.

Are Pergolas a Good Choice for Kansas City Homeowners?

Pergolas are ideal for Kansas City and are an inexpensive feature to put on your home in addition to outdoor living spaces and decks. Outdoor kitchens & outdoor living areas, including stamped patios and fire pits, look wonderful with pergolas that are designed to provide minor shade and minor shelter without going to the full extent of fully enclosed outdoor living spaces.

Pergolas can be built out of any type of wood. Heartland Decks is Kansas City’s #1 Pergola builder. We will find the BEST material to use for pergolas is Cedar. The look and the feel of a cedar pergola that are designed well, will hold up and provide useful functionality and is also beautiful.

What Kansas City
Homeowners Are Saying

The Proof Is in the Pudding

We used Heartland Decks to build a large custom deck for our newly remodeled house. From the first call through project completion was top-notch. Just watching these guys work is amazing and the pride they take in their work is inspiring.

Angie G., Parkville KS

We had Heartland Decks build us a custom screened-in covered deck with cedar posts and a cedar board ceiling. We used composite for the flooring. It's so beautiful and low maintenance. Best home improvement decision we've ever made.

Vivian S., Overland Park, KS

Heartland Decks made us fall in love with our house again! We couldn't be happier with our new patio, fire pit and outdoor kitchen. If you're on the fence about investing in your backyard, just do it, you won't regret it, especially if you work with these guys.

Why We Started
Heartland Decks & Pergolas

Because the Local Market Needed Less Corner-Cutting & More Service

After serving in the local home construction industry for over 30 years, we found that the quality of deck and pergola building in Kansas City is not in great shape – but homeowners expect and deserve more. 

Most pergola building contractors “just want the sale” and don’t really have passion for this trade or pride in their work. 

Heartland Decks was formed to serve homeowners first, and to build a higher standard of deck, with true craftsmanship by skilled carpenters that will stand behind their work.

We love building decks & pergolas with our own hands – plain and simple.

We also love the process of working with you to understand your vision and your family’s outdoor living goals. Your will find that  our process of concept to creation is just as fun and exciting for us as it is you and your family.

A pergola shouldn’t be just a functional afterthought for your backyard.  Your pergola, deck or patio is, after all, where you spend your time with family and friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Your new deck should be beautiful and built to last, with the best materials, engineering and design.

Heartland Decks is a family-owned outdoor living company in Kansas City, with industry leading craftsmanship and warranties. Our process starts with hand picked wood, not the low-end lumber you typical get from big box home improvement stores. 

We have exclusive relationships with Kansas City’s top lumber suppliers who supply the best natural wood and composite decking materials in the market.

Our material selection process is meticulous – all materials are hand-picked and with quality visually verified to meet our stubborn quality standards.

We only use the highest quality wood, fasteners, and finishing materials available. This means one thing: Unmatched Quality.

These days, concrete patios have become very popular.  At Heartland Decks, we also build stamped concrete patios as standalone projects, or in addition to our custom deck project.  Many homeowners in Kansas City like the option of being able to step off a covered deck or grilling deck onto a concrete patio with fire pit or fireplace.

Measure Twice, Cut Once

Our craftsman are trained and paid for quality, not just completion. We don’t hurry or rush the process like others do ultimately resulting in cutting corners just to “get it done”. A wise man once said, “measure twice and cut once”, our crews are careful about the building process, make sure they are thinking of what they are doing, and making sure that perfection is always the goal.

You Get What You Pay For

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”- Benjamin Franklin

Heartland Decks, at one time built lower budget decks, similar to what you might see from a home builder. This was based on price as well as trying to meet the clients budget needs. However, we found that most wanted a better product for their house after it was built, and we as the Deck Builder wanted that as well! We have since moved on from those days, now only providing the best decks in Kansas City.

You will receive a wonderful consultation for your deck or pergola project, ideas and suggestions given to you by our designers, and the final project will be how we all envisioned it before we started. We keep a clean working environment, we try to protect the yard at all costs, and we are professionals from start to finish with the greatest attention to detail and customer service you can find.
