At Rainier everyone on our jobsites are trained in First Aid / CPR & Flagging

Our crew is family and we teach them to watch out for each other and keep each other safe.

With this focus we have fewer Incidents on the job sites and faster return to work if there is a injury.  Our crews are much happier and work safer for the company.

.Flaggers:

 

Flaggers are your first line of defence of the motoring public.

 

Have you had problems getting flaggers?

How about flaggers that don’t really pay attention.

How about flaggers that go to the bathroom every hour and are gone for 10 -15 minutes at a time.

 

Trust me with my 16 years in flagging I have seen all of it. I started at the flagging companies and saw how they work. I got tired of people not caring about the guys they are protecting.

 

When Rainier asked me to join their team I got excited that I got to help train the guys how to flag and watch over each other.

The strong family value Rainer already had just gotten stronger. Families watch out for each other.

Let me bring my years of experience into your company and save you time and headaches with scheduling.

I can train as many people as you would like in the matter of 1 day to help your company with In House Traffic Control.  If you train your own people as long as they already have a great work ethics then you know you won’t have a problem with Traffic Control and your company will be stronger for it.

 

Our prices for both are competitive with all of the other companies out there. We just understand what is like to be a company and trying to stay in compliance with L&I & OSHA.

Paving FAQ’s

What time of year can paving be performed?

We perform paving projects year-round in the Puget Sound area, but we lose many more days to poor weather November through February than the rest of the year. The size of the project can determine the required weather conditions. Moisture, temperature and wind all contribute to how quickly the asphalt cools. We need to be able to get the material placed and properly compacted before it cools below 180-200 degrees.

Is an overlay better than “remove and replace?”

Each has its purposes and advantages. An overlay is certainly a cheaper alternative, but often will not last as long. When asphalt fails, it is usually the base below the asphalt that has failed first. If the asphalt is not removed, we don’t have the opportunity to correct the base failure problem. Overlays are often susceptible to so-called reflection cracking, where the cracks in the underlying pavement will “reflect” through and begin to show in the top layer.

What can be done to make my new pavement last the longest?

(1) A sturdy and well-compacted sub-base (2) A pavement thickness and mix design that is appropriate for the weight-load that will be using the pavement (3) Proper compaction to 92-95% density (4) Diligent maintenance in the years after it is placed, including filling cracks immediately and periodic seal coating.

Who makes your asphalt?

We purchase asphalt from various asphalt manufacturing plants around Puget Sound including Cemex (formerly Rinker), Lakeside Industries, Tucci and Sons, Woodworth and ICON.

How long before I can drive on it?

Typically, newly laid asphalt can be driven on within several hours. The colder the weather, the sooner it is traffic ready. We usually employ a “touch test.” If the surface is cool to the touch, it is ready to be driven on. However, asphalt will take several weeks to cure to its ultimate hardness and exposure to heavy trucks or equipment should be avoided if possible shortly after completion.
