Footings and Foundation

A footing is a traditional foundation method to support a structure in an area where the ground freezes. A footing is placed below the frost line and then the walls are added on top.

A foundation should fulfill the following objectives:

  • Distribute the weight of the structure over a large area of soil.
  • Avoid unequal settlement.
  • Prevent the lateral movement of the structure.
  • Increase structural stability.
