Deep, but really depends on the area.

IIRC, ~30-60ft for them to get a stable enough footing to build on. No idea on bedrock though. It could ba as far down as China, who knows

How deep are we talking? 300 feet or so? Is that in the ballpark?

In some areas of La bedrock can not be reached. Friction pilings must be used if bedrock can't be reached

Sure there is. You may never reach it, but it's down there somewhere...

I know the drilling usually firms up around 5,000 feet or so.

It's actually gooey bedrock, so a true bedrock might not exist
