Curb Appeal! BRIDJIT Curb Ramps Aren’t Just For Your Car
We often cover the many benefits of BRIDJIT Curb Ramps and how they protect your car. We don’t often talk about how many other functions that BRIDJIT Ramps provide for curbing around your home. Many of these functions might be obvious, but we feel they are worth talking about. Firstly, we should cover the types of curbing and how BRIDJIT curb ramps benefit these different designs.
Types Of Curbs
- Barrier or Straight Curbs – Barrier curbs are a raised curb designed to act as a barrier for lawns, sidewalks and parks. They use a squared off design that would be difficult to drive over. This is the most common type of curbing.
- Monolithic/Integral Curbs – These curbs are poured continuously with the sidewalk. This design keeps water out of the curb during the freeze thaw cycle, which helps them be very durable.
- Rolled Curbs – This design ties the barrier design with a cheaper pouring method. These curbs are still able to be driven over, but they can cause damage to a vehicle. These curbs often break down more quickly than other designs.
The many types of curbs all can have damaging effects to vehicles in the right circumstances. But due to the prevalence of rolled curbs, these are often the curb culprit for many vehicle issues. If you’d like to learn more about types of curbing you can check out this blog post.
How Can BRIDJIT Curb Ramps Help?
BRIDJIT ramps are designed to work with the rolled curb design. Their innovative ramps bridge the valley in the rolled curb that lies between the street and the driveway. This reduces the impact on your car and passengers. BRIDJIT ramps offer a modular design ensuring they fit any driveway. You can learn more about BRIDJIT Curb Ramps sizing and measurements here.
If your existing curb is starting to deteriorate, a BRIDJIT Curb Ramp can greatly extend its life by minimizing the impact your vehicle has on the curb. While concrete is very durable, cars and trucks are getting heavier with time. Many cars and SUVs weigh more than 4000 lbs., and pickups can easily pass 6000 lbs. That is a lot of weight pounding into your curb a couple times a day. Ramps greatly reduce the stress on your curb.
Aside from the benefits to your vehicle and passengers, BRIDJIT’s clean design is meant to keep your home looking its best. BRIDJIT ramps are certainly more attractive than a crumbling curb. BRIDJIT ramps allow water to pass through, minimize the impact on your concrete, and prevent further damage to current curbing. Their unique system offers a great way to freshen up the look of your home and protect curbing for daily use. BRIDJIT ramps look great and are built to save you money.
