Kays Contracting is a full-service excavation company specializing in commercial and civil work. From site preparation to completion we guarantee careful planning, creative problem solving and quality workmanship for all your underground works. The territory we serve includes British Columbia’s West Kootenay region from Nelson, Castlegar, Trail and Salmo up the Slocan Valley and North Shore of Kootenay Lake to Trout Lake and Nakusp.

Established in 2006, Kays is relatively new in the West Kootenay contracting scene and we know the best way to grow is to ensure every job we do is of the absolute best quality. Whether its laying the foundations for a new subdivision or overhauling existing utilities such as water mains, our team ensures each project is handled with the utmost professionalism and skill. And it’s working. Staff size has quadrupled since we began. Our equipment offerings now include multiple excavators, dump trucks, bobcats and more. In fact, our fleet is so comprehensive, we’re taking on more jobs and bigger contracts than ever before.

One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is our core value. Quality is ensured in everything we provide, from the initial estimate to your project’s completion. We know that anyone can dig a hole. But it takes a special company to take your project through from beginning to end with the utmost in quality service and solutions. Let us prove it to you.
