How do I determine the number of kits required for my driveway?

The number of material required depends primarily on the width of your driveway and depth of the curb gap. For standard regulation rolled curb gaps, a single unit of Curb Ramp™ will cover about 7-9 ft. when spread to fill the curb 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 watch the installation video.

 

IMPORTANT:

Before priming and mixing the material with the adhesive, we strongly recommend you spread the dry material to fill your driveway curb gap to make sure you’ve ordered enough material. If covers the desired area, simply sweep the material back into the container and proceed with priming and mixing.

Is Curb Ramp™ weather proof?

Yes. Curb Ramp was rigorously tested and has been successfully installed across the U.S. in all times of climates. When cured, the finished material is similar to a professional running track.

Can I remove the ramp once installed?

Yes and no. Curb Ramp™ can be removed once installed using a floor scraper. However, removing Curb Ramp™ destroys the bond of the material and thus cannot be reinstalled at a later time. A reinstall of Curb Ramp™ would require a new kit. Curb Ramp™ is a much more permanent solution than pre-made driveway ramps. While pre-made driveway ramps are more portable, they are also much more expensive and cannot be customized to fit all size/shaped curbs like Curb Ramp™ can.

Does the Curb Ramp™ kit come with PVC pipe?

No, the finished ramp is semi-porous which allows for some drainage. Adding PVC for additional water drainage is optional but not necessary. Please be mindful that installing overly large PVC pipe may impact the structural integrity of the finished ramp, shortening its lifespan.

Do you offer warranties for Curb Ramp™?

As with any do-it-yourself product, we cannot assume liability as to the workmanship of any particular project and therefore cannot offer a blanket warranty policy. However, we strive to ensure every customer enjoys a positive experience and work with customers to get them what they need to successfully complete their ramp and ensure its longevity.

What is used to keep the material together?

Curb Ramp™ is sealed with a polyurethane-based adhesive providing exceptional bond strength. This solidifies the compound to the curb and prevents it from shifting.

What keeps Curb Ramp™ in place during use?

The enclosed primer is used to paint the curb before spreading the mixture to ensure a good material bond to the curb surface. When the material cures, it will not shift if the primer is properly applied and the curb is installed correctly.

How does it allow for flow of water?

After priming the curb, we recommend placing PVC pipe in the curb gap before spreading the mixture over it. This will allow excess water to flow and prevent debris buildup on the sides of the Curb Ramp™.

How does Curb Ramp™ compensate for curved curbing as used in cul-de-sacs?

Unlike pre-made alternatives, Curb Ramp™ can be shaped to fit any curvature at any desired slope as you spread it to fill the curb gap.

How does it compare to other driveway ramps?

Pre-made driveway curb ramps are significantly more expensive ($4-500+) for the same coverage and cannot be easily adjusted to fit your curved driveway’s rolled curb. Curb Ramp™ saves you hundreds of dollars and offers the ability to make a custom ramp to fit the unique shape and size of your driveway entrance.

How long does Curb Ramp™ take to install?

Curb Ramp™ can be installed by one person in about an hour. The components are mixed together and applied 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. Installation Instructions >

What is the coldest temperature that can permit successful installation?

The Curb Ramp adhesive cures/bonds well in cold temperatures and is tested down to 5 degrees. The material is however easier to mix when warm so if you are in a cold region or installing during the winter, it is best to perform the mixing step in a warm place e.g. in a garage. Higher temperatures, moisture and the addition of accelerators will shorten the cure time.

How long will it last?

Curb Ramp™ is made from highly durable rubber and a polyurethane-based adhesive with exceptional bond strength. The cured material is similar to that of a professional running track or playground surface and is engineered to withstand tough climates and heavy vehicle traffic. The first Curb Ramp™ was installed over 15 years ago and is still going strong today.

How much maintenance is required?

This depends greatly on the amount of vehicle traffic and whether it was installed properly. When you notice visible signs of wear and tear, we’ve included additional primer that can be used to topcoat the Curb Ramp™ once a year as this will help ensure the material bond.

What happens if someone is driving or parallel parking in the gutter?

While Curb Ramp™ is exceptionally durable, we recommend you slope each end of Curb Ramp™ to allow easier access up and over the ends.

Will the street sweeper mess up my Curb Ramp™?

Not if Curb Ramp™ has been properly installed. The durability and bond strength of the polyurethane adhesive will hold the material together and allow street sweepers to operate without being impacted. Again, we recommend sloping the material at the ends so as to avoid unnecessary friction and clinging of the broom/bristles to the Curb Ramp™ ends.

Does Curb Ramp™ work if I have a storm sewer inlet/grate located within my driveway?

Unfortunately, no. You wouldn’t be able to spread the material over the grates without the material falling through. Also, this would not comply with HOA regulations.

What happens if I need to return or exchange my ramp?

Please contact us and let us know the reason for return. We work very hard to make sure our customers are satisfied, and in many cases we are able to correct whatever problem you are having with your Curb Ramp™.

If for some reason we can not satisfy your concerns, we will work with you to get your a refund as quickly as possible. Please note that we do not accept returns on used kits. You may return most new, unopened items sold and fulfilled by Curb Ramp™ within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. Should we accept the return, the buyer is required to pay for its return.

What if the ramp is broken or damaged during shipping?

Curb Ramp™ ships in durable cardboard boxes including the gallon can of adhesive. Damage to the box is no cause for alarm. However, if the can containing the primer and adhesive have been compromised (i.e. broken, damaged or otherwise leaking) there may be an issue.

If for some reason there is a leak and the material has been compromised you must notify the shipping company immediately and file a report. Please also send us this information including a copy of the report so we can use it to process your refund. Feel free to use the form on the contact us page.
