Our Vendor Quikrete has instructions on how to pour a ramp or stairs and they reference sifferent types of concrete based on your project.

Here is information regarding ramps directly from the concrete company Quikrete.



Ramps can be used in the event of a slight change in elevation; they

also come in handy as paths for wheelbarrows, lawn mowers, and

other equipment. Use plywood forms and be sure to stake them

securely. Starting at the bottom, place QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix into

the forms. Use a trowel to fill in the form, smoothing the surface as

you go. Be sure to use a stiff mix; if it is too runny, it will not fill the

forms completely. Cure the concrete with QUIKRETE® Acrylic

QUIKRETE® AcrylicConcrete Cure & Seal. Be sure to get permission from your local

municipality before cutting away any part of a curb.


Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
