What’s a Foundation?
A foundation is the lowest load-bearing part of a business or home. It provides the base support and keeps your structure afloat. There are many different options to choose from, such as pier and beam foundations and slab foundations. Each one has their own pros and cons, and the costs vary too. Depending on your geographical location, one proves better than the other. Innovative Foundations will get into the differences below.
A slab foundation is very beneficial for homes that are built on clay soil. If you aren’t aware, a lot of the soil here in Dallas, and the rest of Texas, is clay soil. This ground expands and contracts constantly, due to moisture. Since precipitation levels are high here, whether it be thunderstorms or hail storms, you can expect the soil to expand and contract a large amount. This constant movement causes your foundation to crack, which produces an unstable property. Luckily, slab foundations are built for this type of soil and resist the movement. That’s why slab foundations are very popular here in Dallas. However, if you have a plumbing issue, the foundation will have to be broken down in order to access what is needed.
Pier and Beam Foundation
A pier and beam foundation provides a crawl space for your home. If you ever have trouble with your plumbing or electricity, this space allows for easy access to fix the problems. This type of foundation also places your home above the ground. So, if your area is prone to flooding, you can rest assured that it will avoid this problem. However, you could deal with mold, mildew, and rotting wood, as well as bug infestations in your crawl space. Although both foundations have some qualities that aren’t ideal, the pros outweigh the cons.
