Foundations & Footings

The difference between footings & foundations

In our role as groundwork contractors serving Farnham, Haslemere, Petersfield and the surrounding areas, we often encounter misconceptions about building footings and foundations. To clarify, these terms do not have an interchangeable quality. Put in the simplest form, all building footings are types of foundation, but not all foundations are footings.

We most commonly use building footings with shallow foundation installations. As foundational units constructed from brickwork, concrete or masonry, footings sit beneath the base of a wall or column, distributing its load over a large area.

Conversely, foundations connect the superstructure with the ground, transferring the gravitational load from one to the other. Foundations come in either shallow or deep styles. Our groundwork contractors utilise the most appropriate option depending on the type and size of the superstructure as well as the soil type at hand.
