Which foundation is a better choice, pier-and-beam or slab? Although slab foundations work well and tend to be less expensive at the point of installation, pier-and-beam foundations offer significant benefits. Not only do they protect your home from damage, but they also make it more energy-efficient.
Watch this video to learn about the advantages of pier-and-beam foundations. With pier-and-beam foundations, the house is propped up by a series of steel beams instead of resting directly on concrete. This extra space helps to prevent wood rot and keeps moisture at bay. If extra insulation is added to the bottom of the house, pier-and-beam foundations also create a barrier between the home and ground temperatures. This means your home will stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
