Important Things To Remember For Basement Wall Footings.
A footing is an enlarged base for a foundation designed to distribute the building load over a larger area of soil and to provide a firm, level surface for constructing the foundation wall.
A foundation wall, regardless of the material used for its construction, should be built on a continuous footing of poured concrete. Standard residential footings are 20 inches wide by 12 inches deep, but sometimes load soil bearing capacity call for re-engineering the footings.
