A correctly designed and installed footing is perhaps the most important part of erecting any kind of building or structure. Failure to consider the numerous variables and factor them into the initial planning stage of a building’s construction risks catastrophic failure of the building at worse, or sagging, cracking or subsidence in many other cases.
Designing and installing a sufficient footing is key to producing a solid foundation for your project, and here at Utiliko we have decades of combined experience in producing exceptionally sturdy footings that stand the test of time.
