Resin surfacing

The system can overlay existing surfaces such as tarmac, concrete and other stable substrates.  It is highly durable, flexible and aesthetically pleasing.  There are no loose stones and it restricts weeds.

Permeable Paving

We are fully trained by Marshalls in the installation of sustainable urban drainage systems. Where asphalt and macadam surfaces are required, these can be laid to comply without needing planning permission.


As a team, we have many years experience resurfacing old and damaged car parks and pathways, giving your business the stunning look it needs, first impressions are valuable so you want to get it right

Tarmac Driveways

When tarmac has been laid correctly, it can be stunning and sustainable. Tarmac is another popular material used for both driveways and paths because it can be laid on almost any surface and its very durable.

Block Paving

Block paving is one of our most popular services today. We only use high quality paving blocks to give you the best possible outcome. This is perfect for both driveways and patios, giving you an attractive effect to surround your home.


Our team offer a wide range of styles, colours and materials to suit your property and existing landscape design. Whether you want your home to look modern, traditional or contemporary, CW Stanley can help.

Block Paved my drive and a path

I am not in the habit of giving maximum marks but have to give credit where it’s due.. Their quality of workmanship courtesy tidiness and consequently value for money was well above what I’ve come to expect these days .. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else or to ask them to work on my property again as they’ve given it a whole new look.. Almost a pleasure to part with my money!!

Colin and his team have done a superb job for us.  Their attention to detail has been great and the final result and finish is perfect in all respects. Colin’s quote was spot on, they turned up when promised and finished on time leaving absolutely no mess for us to clear up at all.  Totally recommended to anyone, what more could you ask for.

CW Stanley are privileged to have been the chosen contractor to carry out works for Sir Neville Simms at his Canford Cliffs property.

After initially meeting with Sir Neville Simms, we decided to hand lay the asphalt to the car park because of the awkward shape and roundabout in the middle. This would result in less visible necessary joins than machine laying this particular area.

The area was planed off to reduce levels allowing for additional depth of asphalt to be laid.

New drainage channels were installed across bottom of the car park to take excess surface water away quicker, and new heavy duty covers set to correct height.

The area was then sprayed with a solid coat of bitumen emulsion to seal the surface and offer new asphalt adhesion. The compete area was then re-laid in one day with grade 6mm stone mastic asphalt supplied by Lafarge Tarmac.

The surrounding block paving in front of garages was jet washed and re-sanded a few days later to clean off any grime created through planing and preparation stage.

It is a huge pat on the back for the complete CW Stanley team to have their hard work and determination of producing high quality work recognised by the former C.E.O. of Tarmac.

All in all a thoroughly professional job from an hard working and extremely competent organisation.”
