Asphalt curbs offer a variety of functions in addition to aesthetics. Asphalt curbs are typically extruded from a machine. This leaves a strong consistent shape. If you have issues with controlling excess water or erosion, an asphalt curb may be the solution to your problems. Curbs are also used to define edges or perimeters of parking lots, roads, and driveways. We have several different shapes and sizes to choose from. We can also construct hand made curbs, and cobblestone edges.
Hand made asphalt roll curbs are often used in a residential scenario for controlling water and erosion. The most popular function of the roll curb is that it can withstand vehicles hitting it, and it also blends in nicely with the rest of the pavement. Roll curbs are contructed by hand from our qualified tradesmen. The shape of a roll curb resembles that of a narrow speedbump, placed along the outside edges of pavement.
Here are some benefits of installing a roll curb:
Roll curbs are inexpensive.
They blend in with the pavement more than machine curbs.
Asphalt roll curbs withstand cars impacting them because of there round shape.
Roll curbs can control or divert water flow and soil erosion in most cases.
We have two styles of commercial curb molds. These can also be installed on residential driveways as well. We use specific curb mix which uses more oil to retain stiffness. Curb mix also has an additive to improve rigidity.
We have two styles of industrial curb molds. These can also be installed on parking lots and roadways. We use specific curb mix which uses moreoil to retain stiffness. Curb mix also has an additive to improve rigidity.

The first mold measures 8" wide at base, 6" tall, and 6" wide at top. The second mold measures approximately 11" wide at base, 8" tall, and 7.5"wide at top.
Occasionally we get requests for special water diversions that are often referred to as humps or lips. What people are referring to is a roll curb, or speed bump placed strategically to block water from entering a specific area. Generally these are used at the approach or entrance of a driveway, at a garage floor, or placed in the middle of a drive to force water off an edge.
We construct these diversions from hot asphalt in the same manner as roll curbs They do differ in design in one aspect. Roll curbs are typically narrow and tall. We construct water diversions wide and short. This will eliminate any abrupt encounters you would have while driving over such a bump. Making the diversion wide also greatly increases the ability to effectively control high flowing water.
