Re: Support Post For Porch
Depends on what's wrong and how handy you are.
Footings need to be dug below the frost line and large enough to support the weight of the structure above them. A typical footing starts at around 12" x 12" x 12" with a wet set bracket to hold the base of the post that will be placed on top of it. Notice I said that this is a "typical" footing, as again, the load it must bear and the depth of the frost line and the stability of the soil are critical factors in determining the size of the footing.
