Feel free to use these photos and videos as a ballpark guide to help you estimate how much material you might need for your own driveway. 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 when spread to fill the curb at a 20°-25° incline over 18-22”. A standard double car driveway 15-18′ wide with a rolled curb gap of ~2″ center depth requires approximately two (2) kits. Three (3) may be necessary depending on whether you are just filling the curb gap or creating a full ramp from the top of the curb to the street.
Step by Step Installation
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.
Sweep and blow the area removing all dirt to help the primer adhere to the curb surface. Pressure washing may be necessary for badly soiled curbs.
Prime the area using ~1 quart of the enclosed gallon of adhesive.
Mix the material with the rest of the adhesive using a trowel until the granules are fully coated. You can use the shipping box or an empty 5 gallon bucket for mixing. Use approximately ¾ gallon (3 qt) adhesive for mixing. The granules should be wet and coated, but the mix should not be soupy.
Pour the mixed material out to fill the curb gap and spread the mixture to fill the curb at a 20°-25° incline over 10-12” 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 and slowly add a little bit more more adhesive to the mixture if the material shifts while compressing.
Individual 1 Gallon Adhesive units are available for extra primer, mixture, and/or *topcoat. The topcoat should be applied only once the material has fully dried. For applying a topcoat, it is best 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.
Note: It is not necessary to topcoat, but it helps strengthen the surface area which gets the most friction from tire traffic. To match the color of your curb, past customers have reported success with various colored Rust-Oleum American Accents Stone Sprays that you can pick up at any local Home Depot/Lowes.
