What are the benefits of continuous footing?
A continuous footing is built around the perimeter of your basement foundation after the area has been excavated. This footing is also called spread footing because it spreads the weight of the structure above it, rather than just supporting one point as spot footing does. A wide footing at the bottom of your structure will provide more stability and ensure that your foundation stays stronger, longer. Some other benefits of continuous footing include:
- Anchors buildings so they stay strong
- Most continuous footings consist of steel-reinforced concrete to support the structure
- Works well in residential and commercial construction
- Evenly supports foundation walls’ weight
A well-built spread footing is essential to prevent foundation settlement. It’s important that your foundation footings be evenly spaced and sized to avoid problems caused by improper footing or overspanned footing.
