What is Continuous Footing

A continuous footing spreads the weight of your home evenly across multiple points. If your crawl space has soil flooring, installing a continuous footing will help give additional support to the beams inside your crawl space. Typically, the balance is double the width of the foundation wall depending on how much the soil around your foundation can take. Soil can either expand or shrink depending on the moisture levels, which prompts settlement issues. Introducing a continuous footing to your structure will guarantee your home does not sink and cause foundation issues.
