How do you put footers on a deck?

I need to know how to replace footers for my deck.


Answer by  jkroller (285)

you have set out for an extremely hard task. first you will need a jack ( a very strong jack 5 ton or more) you will need to rig a system that not noyl can support the weight of the deck but can also reach from the deck to your jack. jack it up and replace it.

This is a fairly broad question, because there are so many different types and brands available. I would suggest picking up some How To books, like the "for dummies" series.

You need to but braces under the deck to hold it up while you remove the footers and put in new ones. A two man job.

You need to remove the old footers then mix up some concrete and repour them other wise you will need to dig up whatever was used and take it out buy the rplacements and install them make sure you do it correctly and you could always ask for more information on how to do the job at your local hardware.
