slab or pier and beam? Whats the difference and how can you tell?
These are two different kinds of foundations.
Slab is concrete that is poured directly on the ground, then the building is built directly on top.
Pier and beam has a basement or a crawl space. In other words, you can go underneath the building.
You can tell the difference because in a pier and beam house there will be a crawl space access and ventilation. In most cases, in a pier and beam, you will need to walk up several steps to get to the front door. In many instances with slab, this is not the case.
