Could a piece of plastic replace a traditional concrete footings?

When building a deck, traditionally the builder will dig footings and pour concrete for the foundation. Another method for low profile decks is concrete blocks that can be placed directly on the ground. Now, there are new products hitting the market that are making deck installs quicker and easier. One of those products is called TuffBlock: an instant foundation system made of recycled polymers.

TuffBlock footings only weigh 1.5 lbs but can support 1,700 lbs! According to TuffBlock’s documentation, it’s been tested to over 11,000 lbs without collapsing.
