How To Build Continuous Footing Forms 5



Basic Construction And Carpentry Techniques Home






Placing The Footing Form Rebar

Place or suspend any the footing rebar. Wire attached to the footing form can be used to suspend the rebar as long as the wire is cut flush to the footing surface after the concrete has set. Rebar must be completely surrounded by concrete or it will rust.

Tying The Concrete Wall To The Footing After Placement

The wall that will be placed on the footing must be tied to the footing. It can be done by inserting short steel dowels at 1200 mm (4 foot) intervals along the centre line of the footing with a 76 mm (3 inch) to 102 mm (4 inch) projection above the footing after the concrete has been placed; by inserting bricks on edge in the poured concrete at one-half their depth at about 1200 mm (4 foot) intervals; and by suspending an oiled chamfered keyway along the centre of the footing form by straps attached to the form. See the keyway form in figure 12.
