1. Starting with wrong footings

Footings are an important part of any construction. They are typically made of reinforced concrete that has been poured into an excavated trench. The primary toll of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling. Footings are especially important in areas with troublesome soils.
Just like the longevity of any project is linked to the quality of its foundation, constructing a high-quality deck depends on the footings. When building a deck, you must be sure that it is not built on incorrect or sub par footings or footings that lack the appropriate depth. Footing piers should be as deep as possible into undisturbed soil. This should typically be about 600mm or even as deep as 1200mm if the area is subjected to ground movement.

The specifications and requirements of the building materials are not fixed. They depend on the kind of deck you intend to construct and the type of environment where it is being constructed.
