J.R. Hayes & Sons INC.
History and Background
J.R. Hayes & Sons, Inc. is a second-generation, family-owned business. From our beginning as a small log hauling company with just five employees and two trucks, to a highly regarded site development contractor that provides employment for over 250, and maintains 200+ pieces of equipment, we’ve grown because we’re not afraid to take on a challenge
Company History
Great service and quality site development for over 40 years


Whether we’re changing and contouring the landscape to set the stage for industrial development, master planned communities, or roadways - or performing deep-hole excavations, J.R. Hayes has the expertise and resources to quickly convert land to a new or improved state of use.

Our ability to meet the demands of major developers and provide unsurpassed service is a result of our focus on our client’s goals, and our willingness to think outside of the box. We combine experience with innovation to create cost savings - allowing our clients to shift more of their site development dollars to other pursuits.

The establishment of the Hayes Soil Amendments Division creates a new value for owners and developers by offering a least-cost alternative in dealing with wet and uncooperative soils. Our pioneering work and mastery of the technology have allowed us to overcome many of the restraints imposed by Puget Sound’s weather and soil conditions.
