Footings (cont., pg. 6)


The Basic Foundation of Your House

 

What Your Footing Contractor Will Do

 ● Layout the footings, marking exact locations where they will be dug.

● Dig the footings to proper depth, width, and angles.

● Install rebar as needed.

● Pour the concrete for the footing.


What You Need To Do

● Days before you need him, hire an experienced, licensed, insured footings contractor with good references ─ who you actually called.

● Meet on site with contractor, making sure that he is aware of the building line.  Agree on at least one corner location to begin layout from. 

 

 

● At this meeting, if he hasn’t already committed to a starting date, get him to do so.

● Order whatever material that you are providing (example – rebar) and have it on site for when it will be needed.

● If you are providing the concrete, talk to your concrete supplier at least one day in advance to set up delivery.

● Call your building inspector’s office and request an inspection when footings are dug and ready for concrete to be poured.  You may not pour concrete until inspection has passed.
