Secrets to Building Good Concrete Footings
Building good concrete footings is really no secret and requires some basic rules that are easy to follow but are also easy to ignore. No matter what the structure is that is going to sit on your footings, be it a house, a shed or a deck, if the footing is weak or sits on unstable soils the footing is useless. Almost all good construction drawings will have some details as to the size of the footings required, strength of the concrete the architect requires and so on. Using 2000 pound concrete where 4000 pound is required, is a sure bet the footing will fail. Cheating on the footing size or making it ten inches deep instead of the required twelve inches, means the building is sitting on a weak footing. Weak footings mean cracked foundation walls at least and failure at the worst. If you are having the work done for you take the time to measure the forms before the contractor pours the concrete.
