Curb Ramp™ vs. Cold Patch Asphalt

(1) 50 lb asphalt repair covers 7 sq. ft. at a depth of 1 in.
(1) Curb Ramp™ kit covers 16 sq. ft. at a depth of 1 in.
Conclusion: Curb Ramp™ gets approximately 225% more coverage than (1) 50 lb bag cold patch asphalt. With a 2 inch center gap, one Curb Ramp™ Driveway Ramp Install Kit covers about 8 ft on standard rolled curbs.
Unlike Curb Ramp™, cold patch asphalt breaks apart more easily over time. Curb Ramp’s specially formulated adhesive has exceptional bond strength and is more resistant to heavy traffic and freeze-thaw cycles. As a product designed specifically for use in a built-up curbs, it is much easier to work with than patch asphalt for the average homeowner. It requires no heavy tamping tools and can be easily worked using only a trowel.
Curb Ramp™ vs. Manufactured Driveway Ramps
Curb Ramp offers many of the same benefits of manufactured driveway ramps, at a much more affordable price. Manufactured ramps are often modular, offering mobility and include a small hole for drainage. Curb Ramp can be customized to include a drain size/shape of your choosing and using a simple substrate during installation allows for the ramp to be moved on and off of your curb at your convenience.

The REAL Difference: Cost
But the high manufacturing costs to produce these ramps get passed down to the consumer. A do-it-yourself product like Curb Ramp requires far less overhead, which translates into more savings for you. To cover a two-car (16 ft.) driveway, a manufactured ramp will cost around $550. A Curb Ramp order to cover the same driveway would total about $240.
