About Beautiful Kent WA

Part of the Seattle-Tacoma-Bellvue metropolitan area, Kent WA was incorporated in 1890 as the second-oldest city in King County right after Seattle. First permanently settled in the 1850s along the banks of what was then the White River, it became an area devoted to farming that persisted in various forms up through the 1960s. Boeing began building in Kent in 1965, followed a few years later by other high-tech and aerospace companies.

Live concerts, amazing art galleries, museums, and more await the casual visitor to Kent WA. Farm-fresh fare is easily purchased, as the city is about growing and eating local due to its long time-honored traditions as a farming community. Live performances are the norm, as well as a casino that never sleeps in the area. If you want to enjoy a concert without the issues of parking or obscene ticket prices, Kent is one of the best places to go. If these scenes do not appeal to you, nearly 30 miles of paved trails and connections to many natural trails criss-cross the area, for biking enthusiasts as well as joggers, walkers, and those who enjoy strolling through nature.

Asphalt Milling and Parking Lot Repair Project in Kent WA

Repeat customers are the backbone of any successful business, and Rainier Asphalt & Concrete is lucky to have clients all over the Tacoma WA area, including a property manager in Kent WA. Because we’d paved properties for them before, they knew who to call when the parking lot on a rental property had started to fail. There were potholes, buckled areas of pavement from tree roots, broken concrete curbs, large areas of cracked pavement, and faded parking stripes. That’s a lot of pavement damage!

We always respond promptly to our customers, so we quickly sent a pavement expert out to perform a thorough site inspection and provide a detailed estimate with several options for pavement repair services. We’re happy to work with our clients to find the most cost effective ways to restore and protect their pavement, and we did this with our Kent WA client.

As soon as we had agreed on a scope of work, the Rainier Asphalt & Concrete crew got out to the property. First we saw cut damaged asphalt to remove tree roots, and then milled the surface of other areas to remove cracked asphalt. Then we replaced over 380 tons of damaged asphalt at 3 inch depth for a full pavement replacement. We also filled over three thousand feet of cracks, and applied an asphalt sealcoat over 106,500 square feet to protect from future wear. The damaged curbs didn’t escape our repairs either, and we replaced over 90 feet of curbs.

If the pavement at your Tacoma WA area rental property or apartment complex has seen better days, call Rainier Asphalt & Concrete for a free estimate!

All About Asphalt Milling in the Pacific NW

What is Pavement Milling?

During asphalt resurfacing services, reputable paving contractors use specialized asphalt grinding equipment called milling machines to remove the upper layer of asphalt, automatically loading it onto a truck. Milling leaves a textured surface that allows a new asphalt layer to adhere, creating stable pavement that’s good as new!

What Pavement Issues Milling Can Address

  • Cracking – Shallow cracks less than 1/4 inch wide can be fixed by crack sealing services, but if there are extensive cracks or you’ve already had crack sealing over and over again, asphalt milling can restore the whole asphalt surface.
  • Drainage Issues – Pavement height can affect the slope of your parking lot or driveway, which is the angle at which the surface sits. If an uneven slope is causing drainage issues, getting asphalt milling and resurfacing can fix that, allowing water to run away from the pavement.
  • Raveling – When your pavement has surface deterioration with a rough surface, milling is recommended because the entire damaged surface is removed, allowing for a smooth surface to be installed on top of the exposed base.

Benefits of Pavement Milling

  • Environmentally Friendly – When paving contractors remove the top surface, that asphalt is recycled into other pavement projects.
  • Quick Repairs – These services are much quicker than a complete pavement removal and replacement.
  • Cost Effective – Because it’s quicker and easier, asphalt milling costs much less than pavement replacement.
  • Extends Pavement Life – A new asphalt top layer will last for at least a decade, if not two, which puts off expensive replacement and extends the life of your asphalt pavement.
