About Beautiful Olympia WA

As the capital of the state of Washington and the seat of Thurston County, Olympia WA is an important city in the Puget Sound area with a long history and plenty of amenities for residents. Bordered by the towns of Lacey WA and Tumwater WA, Olympia had a 2010 population of 46,479, according to the US Census Bureau. First settled in the early 1800s, the community was founded as a town in 1859 after a series of treaties with the native residents, and later upgraded to a city in 1882. Many historic homes and buildings from this era stood until 1949 when an earthquake damaged the area, but some, like the Bigelow House Museum, still stand.

In keeping with the lush beauty of the Puget Sound area, Olympia has many beautiful parks, conservation areas, and nature centers, the most largest being the Woodard Bay Natural Resources Conservation Area. This state-run park has over 600 acres and preserves miles of the coastline. Percival Landing Park is another beautiful place to visit with a boardwalk, an outdoor amphitheatre, and an observation tower overlooking the Port of Olympia. The city is also home to Evergreen State College, a nontraditional higher learning institution, and draws artists and musicians from all over the world.

Asphalt Repair Project in Olympia WA

For asphalt pavement that sees a lot of traffic, getting regular asphalt maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your drive-through, parking lot, or loading zone. Without sealcoating and other minor repairs, asphalt can break down and become unstable. Recently a property owner in Olympia WA contacted us about their deteriorating parking lot. We’d been out to fix a broken concrete walkway before, and they were so pleased with the work of the Rainier Asphalt & Concrete crew that they trusted us with their parking lot.

Customer had severe asphalt deterioration throughout a highly trafficked drivelines and were looking for a long term fix. During our detailed parking lot inspection (free to all clients), we discovered that the damage had gone down to the gravel underlayer, so there would need to be full depth asphalt repairs performed, as well as challenges with the layout of the lot. Because this was an assisted living facility, the property needed to remain open to emergency vehicles throughout the project, which gave our paving crew a tight deadline.

We were up for the challenge and dedicated to our Tacoma WA are customers, so we got to work quickly performing full-depth asphalt patching throughout the property while working in and around tight access points. Our parking lot experts had also informed the client that the best way to protect against further wear was with an asphalt sealcoating, so we applied a sealant as well as restriped the parking lines.

All in all, our Olympia WA customers were very pleased with their restored parking lot and knew they’d be calling Rainier Asphalt & Concrete if anything went wrong again!

Asphalt Parking Lot vs Concrete Parking Lot: Which is Best for You

When a commercial property owner needs a parking lot, there are a lot of choices to make about their paving services, including whether it’s better to get a concrete or asphalt parking lot.
No matter which you choose, a new parking lot is a wonderful way to improve both curb appeal and property values. With a freshly paved parking lot, visitors are more likely to become customers.

To get the best commercial parking lot, you need the services of the best paving company in your area. In communities like Olympia WA, Rainier Asphalt & Concrete is the most experienced paving company for both asphalt and concrete paving. Let us help you decide whether asphalt or concrete is best for your new parking lot.

Asphalt Parking Lot vs Concrete Parking Lot: Which is Best for Your Commercial Property

When choosing the type of pavement you need for your parking lot, there are several important factors to consider.

  • Surface Texture – One of the major differences between asphalt and concrete pavement is their texture. Concrete is rougher, which provides more traction but can be louder as tires roll over it. Asphalt is smooth and more flexible so it absorbs sound.
  • Aesthetics – The look of your parking lot matters, and both types of pavement offer different benefits. The smooth, black surface of an asphalt surface matches the street and makes pavement paint stand out, but concrete can be tinted and stamped for more design options.
  • Budget & Timeline – The cost and time it takes to install your parking lot are also very important factors. Per square foot, concrete can be somewhat expensive to install because it’s labor intensive, and it takes a few days to fully cure. Asphalt is cheaper to install and can be ready to use within 48 hours.
  • Maintenance & Repairs – The two types of pavement also have different maintenance requirements and common repairs, though both can crack. Concrete needs cleaning to remove vehicle chemicals and sealing to protect it from wear, and asphalt can be more durable over time with regular sealcoating.
