About Us

Old green Kelly Construction truck.A job in college with a carpenter lead Kevin Kelly to realize that his passion for work could be found in the construction and concrete industries. That passion eventually lead Kevin to establish Kelly Construction of Davenport, a family-owned company that began in 1979. In 1990, a new division called Kelly Designs in Concrete was formed that specialized in decorative stamped concrete.  In 2013 Kelly began its Concrete Coatings branch serving residential, commercial and municipal concrete repair and resilient flooring needs.

Working closely with his sons, Kevin now employs more than 30 staff members, who average over 10 years of experience at Kelly Designs in Concrete. Kelly offers a range of services from installing and providing concrete for footings, driveways, sidewalks and garage floors to parking lot replacement and basement water proofing.  Stamped and colored decorative concrete is an option for patios and retaining walls and the Kelly logo is all over town on walkways and public works projects.

Our mission at Kelly Designs in Concrete is three-fold:

  1. Design – All concrete work should begin in a design phase, and we’re fortunate to have a graduate landscape architect on our staff. When we tackle a new project, we believe the end result is only as strong as the planning phase. This is why we take extra care when outlining a project to ensure that all our concrete services are functional, eye-pleasing and finished to the intimate details.
  2. Construct – Past customers praise us for the thoroughness that we exhibit on all concrete projects, and our construction phase takes into account factors such as run-off, drainage and variables with regard to climate.
  3. Maintain – As the elements will start to impact any concrete surface over time, Kelly Designs in Concrete specializes in restoration and maintenance of existing surfaces, through techniques such as full depth pavement patching and cleaning and sealing of existing regular and decorative surfaces.

We look forward to keeping Kelly Designs in Concrete the local, family-owned business that it’s become today, and passing our company to the third generation of Kelly’s in the future. We look forward to doing business with you. Contact us to get started on your concrete project!
