A spring broke on my garage door and Andrew was able to come fix it that same day within 30 min. Thanks Andrew.
I had another opener installed at my rental house today. Another fabulous job. Thanks again. ~Dale Collins
Wow! Professional, educational, punctual and saved us a small fortune. Highly recommended! You will not be disappointed. ~Heather Hoffmeister
Andrew is great. He is very accommodating to my schedule. I appreciate the fact that he was not a pushy salesman. He did not push anything extra or try to upsell. Gave advice on things to be aware of that saved me money even though he could have made more money.
Doors are awesome and installation was quick. He is very particular and takes pride in his work. He saw a ding smaller than a quarter and said it is unacceptable. He wants to replace it regardless. I can't say enough good things about the man or the job. ~ Rob Michael
Andrew was very professional and prompt. He is quick to respond and shows up when he says he will. Also, the quality of work is excellent and we love our new door! Thanks, Andrew! ~Ryan Baker
State Line was great. Andrew came out and replaced broken springs on my garage door. I sent out a request for a quote on Sunday and he immediately responded and said he could come out the next morning. He called ahead and arrived early, got the work done quickly and did a little tuning of our garage door opener at no extra charge. He was very easy to work with and I would highly recommend them. ~John H. Kansas City, MO
I got a great impression from Andy (Owner-Operator) at the local fair, and I knew I wanted to do business with him. Humorous, smart, and I connected with his mindset. He is a good communicator, and when I decreased my order, he was receptive and understanding. His service quality delivered on his first impression. I loved his marketing swag/merch, labeled, "Punch today in the face." Now my own small business benefits from his motivating phrase too. I will recommend Stateline Door and Lift to others. ~ Will F. Kansas City, MO
We found State Line Door & Lift while searching Yelp for a garage door company to do some maintenance on our garage doors, remotes, openers, etc. It's clear why this company has such good reviews. When I requested a quote, I received a fast response. We were able to make an appointment a couple days after the initial quote. Andy was able to come out early and was finished before our initial appointment time even began, which was great. And he was a very nice guy. We know who we'll call for all our door and garage needs. Highly rated. ~ Tashika B Kansas City, MO
My fiancé and I are extremely pleased with the work Andy and his team did on our recently purchased home. From the very beginning Andy was wonderful to work with. I inquired about services on a Sunday and not only did he respond within minutes, he offered to meet me at the house the very next day for an in-person consultation. During the consultation, Andy was very upfront about pricing and making sure we got exactly what we wanted at a fair price. His transparency is refreshing! Following the consultation, we immediately decided to move forward with Andy replacing our garage doors and openers and he was able to get us scheduled within the week. The day of the installation, Andy's team arrived on time and were extremely professional and hard working. I would recommend Andy for any job as we will assist with making the process easy and giving you peace of mind throughout. Thanks Andy!! ~ Taylor C Grandview, MO

De Soto Kansas History
De Soto was part of a large territory extending to present-day St. Louis that was occupied by the Osage people, who were relocated from east of the Mississippi River in the upper Midwest. After the Treaty of St Louis in 1825, the Shawnee were forcibly relocated from Cape Girardeau to southeastern Kansas near the Neosho River. Only the Black Bob band of Shawnee resisted removal, however by 1828 they too migrated west and settled in northeastern Kansas in and around De Soto along the Kansas River. Later in the 19th century, many cultures of Native Americans arrived in the area after being pushed west by European-American pressure following colonial expansion and later the discovery of Gold in 1849. Between 1829-1854 almost thirty tribes were assigned reservations in what would become Kansas Territory. The Shawnee Methodist Mission was built in the De Soto area to minister to the tribe. A reserve was established in Kansas and soon other Shawnee from as far east as Ohio would join the reservation. The Agency of the Shawnee Indians, also known as Lexington, was located on the southern edge of the city.
The city of De Soto was platted in the spring of 1857, named for sixteenth-century Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto. In 1858, John Possum, a Shawnee man, and Hattie Possum sold 80 acres (32 ha) to John F. Legate, S. Todd and Stratton and Williams for $1,200. The next sale was 80 acres to the De Soto Town Company in July 1861 for $1,176. Major James B. Abbot is remembered as one of the town's pioneer landowners and the builder of Abbot Hall. Today, Abbot Hall is one of two town museums.
With the construction of the 9,080-acre (3,670 ha) Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant south of De Soto, the city's population boomed in the early 1940s during World War II. In May 1943, a Kansas City Star article reported "a town rapidly growing, with a population increase from 400 to 1,000 persons in under a year." This sudden overflow in population put a great strain on housing and other resources in the city; however, many original residents prospered during this time, buying property and starting new businesses. Production flowed steadily at the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant until the plant went on standby in March 1948, with small-scale production following shortly after until its closure in 1993.
In 1943, nearby Sunflower Village was built to house workers for nearby Sunflower Ordnance Works. The west side "Old Village" had 853 dwellings in 1943, and the east side "New Village" had 580 pre-fab units that was completed by 1945. Housing, a school and traffic were filled and overflowing. Highway 10, the main street which is now currently 83rd Street. As people came in, it was getting harder to find room and places to room, bored and to dwell in, to a point that people were living in the chicken house and sleeping under quilts on the ground where the current Scout House is sitting on Wea Street. It was so unbearable that rooms that were rented out "by the shift" that other people were bring in trailers and tents. In 1955, the housing units transferred to Sunflower Ordnance Worker (SOW), then sold to private buyers. In 1961, Sunflower was sold to Quick Way Homes and renamed as Clearview City. In 1998, Clearview City was annexed by the city of De Soto, boosting the city's population by 339 people.
In mid-July 1951, heavy rains led to a great rise of water in the Kansas River and other surrounding areas of the central United States, known as the Great Flood of 1951. De Soto, along the south side of the river, was severely damaged. The river crest at De Soto was 42.3 feet (12.9 m), the highest recorded on the Kansas River during the flood. Most of the downtown area was completely flooded, with over 4 feet (1.2 m) of standing water in some places.
