How deep should deck footings be in Fayetteville?


Here in the NWA Region, the depth of deck footings typically depends on our local building codes and soil conditions. However, a common guideline is to dig footings to a depth below the frost line, which helps prevent frost heave and ensures the stability of the deck.

In Fayetteville, the frost line typically ranges from around 12 to 18 inches deep. Therefore, deck footings should generally be dug to a depth below this frost line to provide adequate support and stability for the structure.

It’s essential to consult with local building authorities or reach out to our team to discuss local building regulations to determine the specific depth requirements for deck footings in your area. Additionally, soil conditions and other factors may influence the recommended depth, so it’s crucial to assess these considerations when planning and constructing your deck.
