Superior Footer Trenching for Quality New Home Construction | BARRIER Tennessee

Footer-Trenching-Services-For-New-Home-ConstructionAre you looking for footer trenching services to dig footers for your new home or structure addition? Placed in the ground under a building, footers are installed below the frost line and provide support for the foundation of the structure.

 

To build footers for new construction, you pour concrete into the wooden frames inside the underground trenching. A homeowner in Nashville, TN gave our team of licensed and insured professionals a call for help with their new home construction. After arriving on the scene, the first step was to determine the depth of the frost line in the area. It was also important, as with all footer trenching services, to become aware of any building codes that would need to be followed during construction.

 

Next, the ground was marked to highlight the location of where the trenches were to be made for the footers. They were made to meet the minimum width of at least two of the concrete blocks utilized for building the foundation walls, with about 6″ extra space on each side.

 

After that, the trench is excavated between the outlines marked in the first step. The frost line in this particular construction site area was a bit deeper than others, so a shovel alone was not a practical choice. An excavator was used to dig the trench to ensure the depth was appropriate for the job.

 

Lastly, wooden stakes were driven into the ground of the bottom of the trench (keeping the 6″ spaces on each side). Along the inside of the wooden stakes, a series of 2×4 boards were placed down on their edges and then nailed to the stakes. This was then repeated on top of the first row.

 

This completed the construction of the footer trenching services for their new home. Without a properly sized and dug trench, such construction can become compromised. This could cause trouble for the finished structure.
