After looking and looking at premade driveway ramps that would not fit my curb I came across Curb Ramp. I just made my second ramp (I used a metal paint mixer powered by a drill this time) and that made it a lot easier to mix. It is so nice just gliding onto the driveway now, especially when the kid is asleep in the back of the car. The only “issue” is having to remember everyone else does not have a driveway ramp.
My wife and I both own low cars, and this has made our driveway entrance much smoother. Two boxes covered our 16 ft driveway and ran us $240 total with shipping. All and all we are happy with it and it saved us about $300 had we bought 4 sections of the alternate rubber ramp we were looking at.
I love my ramp. First, I used a steel plate. It made so much noise every time someone use my driveway as a turnaround point and whenever I drove my 911 over it. It’s been down for a year, with some of the worst rain and hottest summer we’ve had in years. It was easy to install. I just ordered another can of glue so I can change the color from black to something close to the color of the sidewalk by putting down the glue and sprinkling light coat of cement over it. I love how easy it is to work with.
I dig the look of my new curb! Made my ramp removable so I can pull it into the yard on street sweeping days. My only complaint is the shipping cost. Better than paying for new shocks though, that’s for sure.

EASILY MIX, SHAPE AND SPREAD TO FIT ANY SIZED DRIVEWAY ENTRANCE.
Pre-made driveway curb ramps are significantly more expensive for the same coverage and cannot be easily adjusted to fit your curved driveway’s rolled curb. This product can be used as a driveway “curb bridge” where ready-made product simply are not going to work – whether they don’t fit the gutter shape or are too expensive for the desired coverage by volume. Bottom line? Curb Ramp™ saves you hundreds of dollars and offers the flexibility to make a custom ramp to fit the unique shape and size of your driveway entrance.
The amount of material required to fill your curb gutter depends primarily on the width of your driveway and depth of the curb gap. Each unit of Curb Ramp™ covers approximately 1.33 cubic feet. For standard regulation rolled curb gaps, a single kit will cover about 7-9 ft. when spread to slope at a 20°-25° incline over 18-22”. A typical double car driveway at 15-18′ wide with a standard rolled curb of about 4″ tall requires approximately two (2) kits.
For additional information on how much product your driveway needs, see our installation information and check out our latest installation video: How To Make A Removable Driveway Ramp For Lowered Cars in which two (2) full kits were installed to cover approximately 16-18 ft of a standard rolled curb driveway entrance.

Curb Ramp™ can be installed by one person in about an hour. The components are mixed together and will need to dry before you can drive over it. The curation period depends on the moisture and temperature of the curb surface as well as the air temperature and humidity. The material takes less time to cure in hotter temperatures. To be safe, avoid driving over it for 48 hours. Read more: Installation Instructions
The finished ramp is semi-porous, which allows for some drainage already. To further facilitate street water drainage at the end of your driveway, shape or “feather out” the ends of the ramp to help guide water safely around it. This prevents the build-up of debris so your driveway entrance remains unobstructed and allows water to easily circumvent your driveway entrance and enter back into the curb channel. In other words, don’t make a hard right angle at either end of your ramp.

Curb Ramps are highly durable. Depending on the severity and fluctuations of weather, they can last for years without needing any aesthetic and/or structural repairs. The first Curb Ramp was installed 15 years ago and just received some minor aesthetic repairs and a new paint job. That being said, Curb Ramp™ assumes no liability, expressed or implied, as to the architecture, engineering or workmanship of any project.
Yes and no. Curb Ramp™ can be removed once installed using a floor scraper, however removing the ramp destroys the bond of the material and thus cannot be reinstalled at a later time. A re-installation would require a new kit. Curb Ramp™ is a much more permanent solution than pre-made driveway ramps. While ready-made products are more portable, they often don’t fit the gutter shape, are much more expensive and can’t be customized to fit all sized curbs.
How Make Your Curb Ramp ™ Removable:
After you perform a dry run and confirm you have enough material for your particular driveway, lay down a protective layer over the curb surface (so as not to prime the curb surface directly) and tape it down around the edges. We recommend using a durable rubber membrane like a shower pan liner, rubber roofing membrane, pond liner or similar substrate. Next, prime the surface of the membrane to ensure a good material bond to the laid substrate. Then, mix and apply the compound atop the substrate to fill the curb gap as you would normally. After 48 hours, your customized driveway ramp should be dry enough to use. The weight of the material and underlying substrate should provide sufficient stability to keep the ramp in place. Concrete bolts can also be used to fasten the ramp to your curb once the material has cured. If you need to remove the ramp for any reason, you can simply lift it up and move it.
