Slab foundations are especially advantageous due to the warm San Antonio climate, where soil temperature is rarely below freezing. Also, slab foundations can support a large amount of weight unlike pier and beam foundations which are not in direct contact with the ground. This makes slab foundations a great choice for larger homes. However, this direct contact with the ground also has some downsides. The property’s plumbing is almost always located under the foundation, and therefore, access means jack hammering through your foundation in order to address leaks, no matter the size. What’s worse is that you probably won’t know the leak is there, and water under the foundation is certainly not ideal for its health.
