Cemented in areas so you can build or erect a deck, home or building. Usually 4 ft. down in all corners.
A footing for a deck or building is a detached piece, usually poured concrete, that is constructed on undisturbed ground and supports foundation walls or deck columns. In colder regions, the depth is usually determined by the geographical location because it depends on how deeply frost penetrates the ground in that area. The purpose is to construct the footing below the frost line so that the footing will not move when the ground freezes.
footings are the bottom part of a foundation that transfers the building weight (load) into the ground. typically they are concrete with steel reinforcing. They tend to be wider (horizontal thickness) over the thickness .. (vertical distance) in order to spread the load over a expanded area of soil. footings tend to support foundations which might be a point load..(as in a column) or lineal load..such as a foundation wall. the foundation walls, rest on footings...and transfer the weight (load) of the structure to the footings which then transfer the load into the ground...
that was probably too long an explanation for your question...but hey..it is what it is...
what you pour before you build a building or home. It is the ground work that makes your building whatever shape you want it to be. You dig out the area for the footings and then lay and build a frame out of wood and level it before you pour it to make sure it will be correct in measurement.
