Kansas City, Missouri is known for a lot of things.

It’s where Walt Disney began cartooning at his Laugh-O-Gram Studios. It’s where the National World War I Museum and Memorial resides. It’s where Bob Bernstein, founder and CEO of Bernstein-Rein Advertising, came up with the Happy Meal for McDonald’s. That’s right. Happy Meals were first introduced in the KC market in 1977, two years before they rolled out nationwide.

But aside from cartoons, historic artifacts, and kids’ meals, Kansas City is known for its great general contractors.

If you’re thinking of doing some home remodeling, either in preparation to sell or for your own enjoyment, consider using these Kansas City contractors that are sure to give new life to your home. And don’t forget about a roll-off dumpster. Budget Dumpster roll-off dumpsters pair well with any home remodel for the disposal of construction debris and household debris.
