A typical double car driveway entrance 16-18 ft with a standard rolled curb requires approximately two to three kits.
Yes, you can create a removable ramp by using a substrate.
NOTE: For curb-bonded Installations (without a protective substrate), 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. Curb Ramp provides a custom-fit solution with the removable option by simply using a protective substrate.
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. Learn more >
It usually takes about 24 and 48 hours to set up/cure. It can be driven on once completely hardened. We recommend doing a touch test to confirm the ramp is solid after a day – the cured material will feel similar to that of a professional running track or playground surface. When in doubt, it’s probably best to wait a day. You wouldn’t want to drive over it if it’s not sufficiently firm.
There’s not really minimum thickness. It feathers smooth where it tapers to meet the existing asphalt or concrete, but there will inevitably be a very small lip technically.
Yes, it will bond to asphalt with the same strength as to concrete.
Priming is not recommended when the surface is wet. Some air moisture (humidity) is good for curation, but the surface of your ramp should be clean and dried before priming.
Yes, you can. Just re-prime the area and apply more mixed material atop and it will adhere just fine. For mild wear and tear, an Asphalt Emulsion Sealer can also be applied using a paint brush to create a protective lining for new and existing ramps.
Yes, our product can be used to fill a ramp mold.
Unfortunately we don’t have a network of installers nationwide, but any local landscape contractor ought to be able to apply this to your curb no problem using a trowel. Here’s a quick video of the process: DIY Curb Ramp – How To Make A Removable Driveway Ramp For Lowered Cars. Please note that the removable substrate is optional.

Curb Ramp is commonly used on:
- Rolled Curbs & Curved Cul-De-Sacs
- Layback Curbs
- Mountable & Square Curbs
- Steep Driveway Approaches
- Steep Garage Approaches
- Driveway Straddling
.. and when ready-made products just don’t fit!

The finished ramp is semi-porous, which allows for some drainage naturally. 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. (In other words, don’t make a hard right angle at either end of your ramp..) 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. If you plan on installing a drainage channel, please refer to this article.
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.
This depends greatly on the amount of vehicle traffic and whether it was installed properly. Most installations will last many years before any maintenance is required. If you notice visible signs of minor wear and tear on the surface, a topcoat can be applied using a paint brush to create a protective lining for new and existing ramps. Contact us for our latest topcoat product recommendations or any other maintenance questions.
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.
A finished Curb Ramp is highly durable and retains its durability and elasticity for several inches in depth.
Local rules and regulations with regard to driveway curb entrances can differ from one neighborhood to the next. Curb Ramp LLC assumes no liability for violations of local laws nor regulations. We encourage anyone interested in installing a driveway curb ramp to consult with their HOA as well as any other applicable local rules and/ or regulations prior to installation. In many cases, building a removable ramp using a substrate and/ or installing drainage channel using a pipe or similar accessory will satisfy most HOA’s concerns. For more information on Homeowner’s Association compliance including tips from past customers, refer to this article.
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.
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.
Yes. Curb Ramp’s chemical bond is exceptionally strong. When applying to an existing permanent ramp, we recommend you first prime your driveway, then place the rubber ramp, and finally cover the ramp with the Curb Ramp material. For removable ramps, we recommend first applying a rubber substrate and priming it before placing your rubber ramp.
No, you wouldn’t be able to spread the material over the grates without the material falling through.
Yes, Curb Ramp can be spread to fill the gap, creating a ramp for a smoother entry.
It has a 6 month shelf life, but can last longer than that if the seal is good.
A few things to look for:
- If you see any signs of leakage around seal or seam – Bad.
- Shake the can a little – Can you hear the adhesive slosh around? If so, good.
- If you open it and see a crusty top, it has been exposed to air and compromised – Bad.
Weather & Longevity
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.
Curb Ramp cures best in warm, humid weather, but the adhesive will still bond well in cold temperatures and is tested down to 5 degrees. When temperatures are below freezing, it will take longer to cure. In preparation for the install, you’ll want to make sure the adhesive has been stored in a relatively warm environment before you try and prime and/or mix it with the material. If the can has been sitting out in the cold at those temperatures, it will be very thick – like molasses – and much harder to work with. Typically, customers in these climates will do the mixing in a heated garage, for example. If you are mixing in an enclosed space, please note that while the adhesive is low VOC, you’ll want to be sure there is some ventilation in the room to disperse fumes emitted by the polyurethane binder so as not to inhale those directly in a concentrated environment.
While we have not performed tests against snow plows, we also have not had any reports of ramps getting ripped up by one. When you shape or “feather out” the ends of the ramp to guide water safely around it, this also helps guide the blades of a snow plow over the top of it. However, we are not able to make any guarantees and are not responsible for damage caused by snowplows, street sweepers or other road clearing vehicles.
Curb Ramp is water-resistant and highly durable. It has been rigorously tested and successfully installed across the U.S. in all types of climates. During installation however, we recommend to wait for good weather i.e. without precipitation in order to let it cure properly. It can take anywhere between 24-48 hours to fully set up and dry. Rain during the curation period can compromise the integrity of the ramp, so it would be best to try and cover it with a tarp and redirect water around it in the event of any unexpected showers.
A finished Curb Ramp is water resistant, not fully waterproof. While most water will flow over or around the ramp, it will absorb small amounts of moisture and discards it through evaporation.
Installation is best in warm temperatures, but can be installed at any temperature, ideally above freezing. If it’s real cold there, just make sure the adhesive stays warm up to the point of installation. If it’s been sitting out in the cold for some time it will be like molasses and harder to mix and spread.
Curb Ramps are highly durable. Depending on the severity and fluctuations of weather, they can last for years without needing any structural repairs. The first Curb Ramp was installed 15 years ago and has only required some minor aesthetic repairs.
A finished Curb Ramp is highly durable. If properly installed and handled, a removable Curb Ramp should retain its structure for a considerable amount of time, although Curb Ramp assumes no liability, expressed or implied of the handling or mishandling of ramps under such circumstances.
