Posted on

Welcome to KB Carpentry’s ultimate guide to deck footings! If you’re a homeowner on the South Shore of Massachusetts, looking to enhance your outdoor space with a new deck, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the importance of footings, their installation process, and how KB Carpentry can help you achieve a sturdy and long-lasting structure for your home.

Why Are Footings Important? Footings are a crucial component of any deck structure, providing stability and support to ensure your deck remains safe and secure for years to come. Here’s why they’re essential:

  1. Load Bearing: Footings bear the weight of your deck, transferring it to the ground below and preventing the structure from sinking or shifting over time.
  2. Preventing Settling: Properly installed footings help prevent the deck from settling unevenly, ensuring a level surface and minimizing the risk of structural damage.
  3. Code Compliance: Building codes in Plymouth, Marshfield, Duxbury, Sandwich, and throughout the South Shore of Massachusetts require decks to have adequate footings to meet safety standards and regulations. Click Here to see local deck footing building codes.

Installation Process: At KB Carpentry, we follow a meticulous process to install footings that meet the highest standards of quality and durability:

  1. Site Evaluation: We assess the soil conditions and terrain of your property to determine the optimal placement of the footings.
  2. Excavation: Using professional equipment, we excavate holes at specified locations according to engineering requirements and local building codes.
  3. Footings Installation: We pour concrete into the forming tubes in the excavated holes to create sturdy footings that will support the weight of your structure.
  4. Post Installation: Once the footings are in place and the concrete has cured, we attach posts to the footings, ensuring they are securely anchored and level.
