Two kits were used to create this driveway ramp, which is 16′ long, 22″ from street to the top, and with a 2″ center gap. The amount of kits 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.
Sweep and blow the area to remove all dirt and help the primer adhere to the curb surface. Pressure washing may be necessary for badly soiled curbs.
Prime the area using approximately ¼ gallon (or less) of the enclosed adhesive.
Tip: To ensure you preserve enough adhesive for the compound, you can also mix the adhesive with the material first (Step 3a) and then use what’s left over to prime. Be sure to WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES! The adhesive is very strong and does not come off easily. Exercise caution to avoid leakage over unwanted areas and avoid contact with skin. A heavy-duty industrial hand cleaner like GOJO can be used to remove from skin.
Mix the material with the remaining adhesive (about ¾ gallon) using a trowel until the granules are fully coated. You can use the shipping box or an empty 5 gallon bucket for mixing. The granules should be wet and fully coated, but the mix should not be too soupy.
Spread the mixture to fill the curb at the desired angle to bridge the gap between the driveway and the street. Slope it at the ends for a smooth entry. Compress and shape the edges using a trowel to get clean install lines.
Once the material has fully dried, a topcoat can be applied to the material. It is not necessary to topcoat, but it can help strengthen the surface area. Individual 1 Gallon Adhesive units are available on our website for topcoating, priming and/or mixing. When applying a topcoat, it helps to pour the adhesive into a paint tray and use a paint roller over the curb ramp surface to get the most out of the remaining adhesive. To match the color of the ramp to the curb, some customers have reported success with various concrete colored spray paints.
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.
