Do you know the type of foundation you have at your residential home?
Here in Texas, the most popular residential foundation types are slab and pier-and-beam. Most people do not pay attention to this, however, the foundation type can tell you a lot about how you can properly maintain your foundation over time.
Slab foundations are possibly the most common type of residential foundation in the metropolitan area. Made of concrete, this type of foundation is also the most cost efficient and the quickest type to lay. Slab foundations are also characterized as being extremely durable and stable, however, they do experience settling since they are laid only a few inches higher than the soil. To help maintain your slab foundation, it is essential that you keep the ground around it watered to help maintain the soil’s moisture level.
Pier and beam foundations are created by laying a concrete slab and then building a wood deck-like structure on top and a concrete wall around the perimeter. With this type, the floors are placed above the home’s soil level. Pier and beam foundations are generally extremely stable and are easier to modify when plumbing or electrical issues occur in a home. However, this type of foundation is also susceptible to repair because of the structure’s wood component. Typical wood issues like sagging, warping, rotting, molding, and even wood-eating insects are common issues for hose who have a pier and beam foundation at their residential home. To help prevent this issues from happening, ensure your home has a proper interior drainage system in place and seal any leaks of holes as soon as possible.
