Building A Deck Pier Video

Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I am here at the Remodelers' Show in Chicago. I just stumbled across a really neat booth. If you are getting ready to build a new deck and you have to put in concrete piers and you are just wondering how in the world you are going to do that. And get it right. Look at this. You aren't going to believe it.

This is called the Form-Footer. This is a plastic system with all the various parts included. The rebar comes in the kit and is precut and everything just snaps together. Need more height? Just add another section to the form. This allows you to get the deck pier down below the frost line and above the ground.

A very interesting product, that sells for less then $100. Just dig the hole, drop in the assembled Form-Footer with all the rebar precut, and you are ready to pour concrete. One of the best footer devices I have seen. Wish I had these back when I was building decks!

  1. I couldn't get a vid on my iPhone. This really looks like something that will make building a train room on the back of an outbuilding at a future date. If I can just find the edge of my property. I've seen the stake before but can't find it now so I don't know how far down the hill I can build.
