What Kansas City homeowners are saying about our work!

Very Responsive!!

John Graber built our beautiful deck last summer. We had an issue with our lighting at about the one year mark. He followed up at one year, as he’d promised, and also fixed the light issue. Very responsive, excellent workmanship!!! I highly recommend Graber Outdoors!

Very Professional & On Time

Deck Storage Area

We highly recommend Graber Outdoors if you are in the market for a new deck, pergola, and storage area under deck. John and his team built us a new deck with the Trex materials that far exceeded our expectations. They were very professional, completed the job exactly on time, and communicated every step of the way. We initially were not planning on using this type of material but after seeing another deck they had built we made the switch. This company was not our cheapest bid but they were worth every penny. John worked with us every step of the way from design to helping us locate another company to do the concrete work (they were also fantastic) and making sure the job went very smoothly. We selected the Trex transcend in Havana Gold and Spiced Rum. We also selected the Trex railing in Vintage Lantern and did the Cocktail Rail. The pergola is beautiful and shades well. We used a pre-treated lumber for this. They even helped us to design and built an amazing storage area under the deck for storage.

Punctuality & Attention To Detail!

Graber Outdoors did a great job on our deck. I had built our deck on our last house and just didn’t have time to work on this one. They showed up on the exact day that they said they would and had it done in almost 2 weeks (it’s a large deck, close to 950 sqft). The final product looks great and they have a good eye for the finish detail.

John’s Suggestions Were Great!

Graber Outdoors recently built a beautiful covered front porch for us & I can’t believe how much better it made the house look! John’s suggestions were great & he was so helpful to get just the right look for the house. I highly recommend Graber Outdoors for any deck/porch needs…in fact, they will be working on another project for us this Spring!

Sandy B.

Very Happy!

I’m very happy with my new deck John constructed for me! He does high quality work at a very fair price, besides being a great person to work with. He did exactly what he promised and was very prompt in getting the job done. I highly recommend Graber Outdoor to anyone!

Barbara Collins

Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I made a huge mistake hiring the wrong person to build my deck. Needless to say that I went with someone that was cheaper and he totally messed it up. I called John Graber and he was more than happy to come and look at it. They completely rebuilt my deck and it looks Great! They are very meticulous with their work. I had them build my pool deck also and I absolutely love it!!! You get what you pay for and I strongly recommend John and his crew!!!

We Chose The Right One!

Unbelievable Results!! You know when you use a contractor, particularly when it deals with construction, remodeling, repairs….you hope you chose the right one. You’ve heard of those contractors that took some upfront money, did SOME work, and never returned. Well – We have never enjoyed an experience like we did during the building of our new deck. A teardown of the old 12×12 – 20-year-old wooded deck…replaced by a new Trex 24×12 deck. John Graber, the owner, managed the entire process. He communicated frequently by phone and in person. His work crew was the kindest, courteous group of men that worked well together. I have recommended Graber Outdoors to 2 neighbors already. Everything was carefully planned from the delivery of materials to setting of the dumpster to EVEN the clean shiny porta-potty. The clean-up after the deck was completed was so good that an outsider would have no idea we just added another “room” to the house. Don’t use anyone else because you’ll never find a contractor that will exceed your expectations as Graber Outdoors did. Great pricing also. We asked for other bids prior to choosing Graber. Can you tell we liked this company???

Ed Coulter

Fantastic Quality All Around

John Graber and his team are awesome! Not only great people to get to know, but also very high-quality work. From the moment I first contacted John, he was very responsive and assisted me with decisions without any pressure at all. His crew was very impressive and cleaned up at the end of every day. Completely on-time and no hidden catches. We love our remodeled deck and have had several neighbors stop and stare! I highly recommend Graber Outdoors!

Jason Tucker

Excellent Job!

Graber Outdoors did an excellent job on our deck.
He and his crew were very professional, courteous, and friendly. We are so proud of our deck and were amazed at the finished product!
I highly recommend Graber Outdoors for your project.

Dan Hatcher

Reasonable Prices!!

Does great work, they know what they are doing. They also have reasonable prices. Are very helpful when you have question’s about things you are wanting to do. Would highly recommend them to any one and all my friends!!!!!!!!!!

Lynda M.

Exceeded Our Expectations!


John Graber and his crew did a fantastic job for us! He built a very large deck for us using Trex and it is beautiful. It really exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are both engineers and we are so delighted with the quality of the workmanship and the attention to detail. As small business owners, we had limited time to dedicate to holding the hand of a contractor or looking over their shoulder. John gave us total confidence in his ability to handle our project and was able to limit our involvement to key design decision – just what we needed from our contractor. We would certainly recommend John and Graber Outdoors!

John Robinson

Very Professional!

Graber Outdoors built a deck for me recently and I was extremely pleased with the deck itself and the men who built it. They were great to work with. They were very professional in all ways. They listened to my ideas for the deck and executed them. Also I was very pleased with the way they cleaned up my property when the deck was completed. Also enjoyed working with John throughout the process. It was easy to describe what I had in mind for the deck and to exchange ideas.

Marilyn Moore

A Great Job!!

John Graber and his crews are just super. We could not have asked for a more accommodating and professional group. Thank you. The communication was top notch. The pricing, permitting, scheduling, construction and cleanup was just great. I do not hesitate to recommend the young men of Graber. Thank you. Bill

Excellent Deck Expansion

My husband and I are thrilled with the expansion of our deck just completed by Graber Outdoors! From the beginning, working with John on the design through completion by his hardworking, pleasant and polite crew was a great experience. The project was completed on time and on budget. John and his crew obviously know all the ins and outs of Trex decking, anticipating any issues in advance and coming up with great solutions. I would recommend Graber Outdoors to anyone. Thanks for a terrific job!!

Jane Miller

Great Job From Start To Finish!

John and his team did a great job on our deck project from start to finish. This includes the bid phase, demo, local permitting, all the way through completion and punch list items. We had multiple contractors working on our house, and John was more than willing to coordinate with others on technical details and schedule in order to provide the best finished product. As with any construction project of this size, issues will arise. When they did, John and team attacked them head-on, communicated with me, and provided solutions. I will recommend Graber Outdoors to others looking for a quality TREX deck at a fair price.

Tyler Best

Epic Customer Service!

Graber did an amazing job on a difficult project. Epic customer service that is equally well matched by a very high level of craftsmanship. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with this amazing crew.

Ilya Tabakh

Top Drawer!

Steps Porch

Graber Outdoors provided me with local clients who were willing to allow me to look at their work. Those clients sang their praises, and the decks I saw were gorgeous and had beautiful detail and quality. When my project was booked to begin, Graber Outdoors were right on time and had the necessary support equipment to keep the project uncluttered and progressing. I am very pleased with the new wrap-around Trex porch and the quality of the vinyl railings and posts used on my project. I also appreciate that they will check back with me in a few months to see if there are any problems- who does that? This outfit is top drawer!

Wendy Borders

The Best You Could Ask For!

This was the best experience you could ask for. They are very helpful in explaining everything that we needed for our deck. They returned our calls in a timely manner. The finished product was amazing. Our new hot tub looks great on our new deck! Thank you John and your team. We will definitely use you again in the near future.

Kristie Lesmeister

Very Flexible To Changes!

Graber Outdoors completed an awesome Trex composite deck at my residence. Mr Graber was very up front about the cost and was very flexible to my changes/upgrades. They are very professional, on time, and among the best contractors that have worked on my house. I would recommend Graber Outdoors to anyone needing a deck!

Scott Hafford

Very High Quality Work!

We are extremely pleased with the professionalism and attention to detail given to our retaining wall/deck project. Great communication throughout the project and the results show very high quality work. We won’t hesitate to use Graber Outdoors for any future projects.

Jennifer Wright Hazelman

Highly recommend!

Graber Outdoors did an outstanding job on our deck. We are extremely pleased with the craftsmanship and work quality. Worked well with us to create our vision for outdoor living space!

John S.

There Was No Comparison!!

We contacted John from Graber Outdoors after seeing his work on 2 different relatives’ projects. We talked to 3 other deck builders and there was no comparison, John really knew his stuff and we were immediately comfortable with his explanations and ideas. His pricing fit our budget and he kept his word the whole way through. No surprise add on charges. We wanted to replace our existing deck with something bigger and re-designed. He had great ideas we hadn’t thought of and it turned out beautifully. His crew was professional and very hard workers that did an outstanding job and cleaned up after themselves. Can’t say enough nice things about these guys. If you want it done right and at a reasonable price for quality craftsmanship, these are the guys for you. Just waiting for some warmer weather so we can enjoy the fruits of their labors! Very rarely do I do reviews, but they deserve it!!

An Eye For Detail!

Great experience with a great team. They were courteous, efficient and had an eye for detail. We were very pleased with their work and exceeded our expectations. We would recommend them to anyone.
