EZ Crete stackable concrete footings are made from a round base section with a 22-inch diameter, and 11-inch-wide by 12-inch-tall cylinders. Installation is quick: After digging a footing hole, install a galvanized guide rod through the base, then lower the base into the hole. Run a bead of sealant caulk on top of the base, then lower a cylinder into place. Add cylinders until you reach the desired height, then attach a post base, and you’re finished. The cost of one base section, galvanized rod, and four cylinders is approximately $160. Installation time: about 30 minutes, not including digging. e-zcrete.com
