Footings are 60". About 52"-55" below grade.
Here a post in the ground is not a footing. A footing is 24"x24"x24" is a small one and for a covered deck 30"x30" 30" is common.

Re: Slope Under Deck


Is there a footing below the pier or just a 10" sonotube? That seems really small and I've built decks in CT. The smallest footing I could spec on most projects around here is about 16" diameter(for rounds).

Re: Slope Under Deck


Might be a good spot for under deck water control panels that funnel the water to the edge of the deck, realy slowing the erosion under the deck area... no rain, very little soil movement....
Can be used as an up sell, for storage area for large volume, low value yard/deck gizmos.

Now that DrySnap is gone, I think Certainteed Undershield is the cheapest option that works for under deck drainage. There are a lot of products that look nicer or do a better job but Undershield isn't a bad product and the install is very fast. You can build your own system with EPDM for less money but it requires more planning/skill.
