While there will continue to be plenty of outdoor activities in Kansas City that you and your family can participate in throughout August, there’s a chance that the summer heat might be keeping you inside. However, there are a number of great outdoor activities in Kansas City that will allow you to cool off while still letting you enjoy the outdoors. The following are a few places that we suggest you go this August in order to cool off from the August heat:

Our Customers LOVE The Results

Johnson County Siding & Window Co.
"The whole team was awesome. Justin was super helpful in helping us pick windows and answered all our questions. We had the whole house done and the installation crew were professional and hardworking. We noticed a difference right away with how quiet the windows made the house. We also noticed that the house has a more even temperature between levels. I am excited to go into winter now with a great set of windows that are so easy to use and with quality installation that will last.”

"It was a most pleasant experience to work with Johnson County Siding and Windows for the replacement of a few windows in our home. Bill Christie came and gave us a price. No glib, "well this is what it cost, but we can do it for this if you pay cash right now ..., but, no, wait, we can do this, if you hurry ... " He sold his product, and company, with pride and experience. The team to install, lead by Justin, arrived early on the appointed day. They went right to work and completed the task in due order, answering any questions we could have, and explaining the total function of the system. They cleaned up after themselves, and left the windows shining! What a day! Thank you Bill, Justin, William and Brian!”
