This footing calculator will help you accurately determine the size and depth required for your building’s footing.

## How to Use the Footing Calculator

To use this footing calculator, simply input the dimensions of the footing (length, width, and depth) in feet, select the type of concrete you are using, and enter the cost per cubic yard of concrete. Press the “Calculate” button and the result will provide you with the total amount of concrete needed in cubic yards and the estimated cost for the concrete.

## Calculation Method

The calculator uses the following steps to determine the quantity of concrete required:

- Converts the dimensions from feet to cubic yards (since 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet).
- Multiplies the cost per cubic yard by the volume of concrete to estimate the total cost.

## Limitations

This calculator assumes that the footing is perfectly rectangular and does not account for irregular shapes or additional features such as rebar, forms, or site preparation costs. It also does not adjust for variations in concrete type beyond basic density differences. Always consult with a professional for precise calculations and additional materials needed for your specific project.
