Our Story

Stanley Excavating has been serving Franklin County, VA and surrounding areas since the late 50’s. We are a Class A contractor specializing in commercial and residential site preparation including utilities and septic system installation.

Started by Roy A. Stanley, Stanley Excavating performed many residential and aggricultural related projects in Franklin County, worked on the development of the Ferrum College campus and infrastructure, as well as the original 4H camp located at Smith Mountain Lake.

Jump to the mid 80’s when Stanley Excavating was taken over by Joel “J.W.” Stanley. From there the focus was shifted towards new resdiential starts around the Franklin County and Roanoke Valley areas. Seeing the need for a grading contractor as well as septic installer all in one, J.W. began performing both tasks and was one of the first contractors in the area to do so.
