Your New Construction Starts Here

The strength and durability of your home or any other structure you’re building on your property depends on the quality of your foundation and footings.

Depending on the needs of the new construction, different foundations require different excavating procedures, and making sure the excavation is precise is very important.

Once your engineer determines the depth and type of foundation, we’ll take care of making room for your new foundation with a well-executed excavation.

Understanding Footings And Foundation

The footing is the bottom part of the foundation, and its purpose is to distribute the weight of the construction evenly across the entire foundation and into the ground.

Footings are used in any building with a foundation, including houses, commercial buildings, and bridges. They provide the necessary support and stability to structures by distributing the load evenly across the soil beneath them.

A proper footing will also help keep water and moisture from seeping into the foundation, which can lead to cracks and other damage.

Footings & Foundation FAQ

This depends a lot on the type and size of foundation your home will have. For example, digging a 4x60x2 ft. foundation will take between 2 and 5 days depending on soil condition.

One common problem with foundation is cracking and settling. Cracks in the foundation indicate that the house is settling unevenly, which may lead to further structural damage. This type of settling is usually caused by poor soil compaction during construction and can cause further damage if left unchecked.

Other common signs include door frames or windows that are misaligned or out-of-square, cracks in walls or floors, and gaps between walls, floors, and ceilings.

Excavation cost for foundation or footings in Colorado depends on the size and depth of the foundation and on the type of soil. Access and foundation design may be a factor too. Generally speaking, excavating a cubic yard costs between $100 and $200, but can vary significantly depending on your site’s condition.

If you’re planning for a ground-level deck, footings won’t be necessary. But if your deck is higher than 36” or larger than 100 sq. ft. footings will make sure your deck is stable and won’t rot or fall.
