Jump in, the Water’s Fine!

Matt Clark, owner of KC Pool Pros, is ready to make your pool dreams become a reality

Imagine it’s a beautiful, hot, day in the middle of summer with your friends and family relaxing in your beautiful backyard oasis. The outdoor stone kitchen grill is wafting the neighborhood with the smell of homemade barbecue ribs while your loved ones are swimming in your custom in-ground pool. Sounds like the perfect day, doesn’t it?

Summer is right around the corner, making it the perfect time to have a consultation with Matt Clark, owner of KC Pool Pros. Matt has more than 32 years of experience in the construction industry where he’s worked on residential homes, commercial buildings and custom pools. 

Fast-forward and Matt introduced his own pool company, KC Pool Pros. Matt partnered with Fine Line Designs Designer Meg Steen, and Matt and Meg work with their clients to create a custom design to fit the budget and aesthetic for the perfect backyard escape. “We not only custom design your pool, we create unique lighting and do hardscape design including landscaping, outdoor kitchens, patios, fireplaces, fire pits, outdoor kitchens…the whole gamut,” he explains. 

Matt is front and center of each project with a hands-on approach from the start, “You get me from the beginning of your project to the finish,” he says. He builds pools ranging from modest to magnificent, and he helps you design, build and install your custom creation with a high-quality finished product. Starting with an individual design, KC Pool Pros will build a beautiful custom swimming pool to your specifications, offering unique designs and shapes to create your own private backyard paradise. 

Since COVID, he says they have seen an increased demand in private pools with the public pools closed and more and more people wanting to keep their distance and privacy during the pandemic. His staff has combined experience of more than 40 years and ensure they stay updated on the latest trends through continuing education programs.

Matt is a dedicated family man with a large family of seven children and four grandchildren with one on the way. He loves creating a magical outdoor space for families and couples with his own family experiences in mind. Two of Matt’s children work with him at KC Pool Pros. His daughter, Lilli, is digital media coordinator and a senior at Park University. His son, Larrsen, works with Matt on day-to-day operations. 

His tip for anyone thinking about transforming their outdoor living space is to work with an experienced swimming pool builder who can guide you through the design and build process. KC Pool Pros are focused on providing an excellent customer experience including financing options. With them by your side, you can make a well-informed buying decision.
