Location and spacing is to be determined by the structure’s load requirements and local soil capacity.
  1. Dig the post hole slightly larger than the FootingPad®diameter and deep enough to be below the local frost line.  In most cases an auger the same size diameter as the FootingPad will create a hole big enough to fit.

  2. The footer should be fully supported, with no voids or empty space underneath.  Level and tamp the soil to ensure proper support.  Pea gravel can also be used.

  3. Place the FootingPad into the hole, smooth side down.

  4. Position the post onto the pad at the required location.  The post can be off-center by up to several inches.

  5. Backfill the soil around the post and compact, while ensuring the post is straight.
