Residential services

As a homeowner, your home is likely your most valuable and important investment. At G&R Kelly, we understand how important your home is to you, and are proud to serve homeowners as a reputable and reliable general contractor, serving homeowners since 1969 in Halifax, and the surrounding areas of Bedford and Dartmouth.

One service we offer to residential customers is environmental remediation, which can be required if contaminants are discovered on your property, either during work, through flooding, or through a site inspection. G&R Kelly ensures that all pollutants and contaminants are removed quickly and safely, for the health of your family and neighbours. If additional excavation is required, G&R Kelly is your best choice for excavating contractor in Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford.

We are also a trusted local provider for quick and efficient fixing of sewer backups and water line leaks, and we are proud to be recommended by HRM as a top choice in lead water line replacement services.

Commercial services

G&R Kelly is also a full service provider of commercial services for business and property owners looking for an excavation contractor. Our fully qualified teams follow all required safety standards and complete your job on time and within budget.

Some of the services we offer include demolition, excavation, environmental remediation — because occasionally, contaminants and pollutants are uncovered during services or site inspections — as well as rock breaking, drainage and electrical trenching and duct banks.

Our company’s skills in completing infrastructure projects of significant size and scope are also well documented, as we have successfully completed projects in road construction, sanitary, storm and water works, trails and parks, utility pole installation and asphalt and concrete. We are proud to note that our concrete and asphalt work is recognized by the HRM and HRM Water Commission. HRM also holds a Letter of Credit from G&R Kelly to cover the refundable deposit required for permits.

For landscaping work including retaining walls and other special projects, we also provide equipment rental with an operator. And adding to our landscaping services, we offer snow removal for businesses and homeowners — because we know that Nova Scotia experiences significant snowfall during the cold months.


Nothing is more important than knowing you can get immediate help in an emergency — any time of day or night. G&R Kelly offers 24/7 emergency service for any property issue that needs immediate attention. One call and we will mobilize our expert team of responders, who will arrive ready to solve your emergency, quickly, safely and efficiently.

Pipe lining

If water and sewer line leaks or repairs are your main concern, then G&R Kelly offers pipe lining services that can quickly and cleanly remediate your problems. By employing the use of a CCTV (closed circuit television) video inspection camera, we’ll be able to see inside your pipes from above ground. We’ll quickly assess the situation and set a course of action to de-root, delaminate, and fully re-line your existing pipes. G&R Kelly has successfully completed many of these jobs as an excavating contractor in Halifax (and Halifax area), Bedford and Dartmouth.

Our extensive customer list includes Halifax Regional Municipality, the Halifax Regional Water Commission, Nova Scotia Power, and many local commercial and residential property owners. We are conveniently located at 738 Hammonds Plains Road in Bedford, Nova Scotia.
