Home Pier & Beam vs Slab Foundations w/ Mark LaLiberte
Mark LiLiberte joins Master Builder Matt Risinger to discuss the differences between a piered foundation and a slab foundation. In hot and humid Austin, TX, efficient homes start with the foundation. The pier and beam approach remove the foundation of the home from the moist (and unpredictable) Texas soils. As you'll see, this home sits a few feet off the ground, which allows for additional insulation below the foundation, which makes for a much more efficient home.In a more traditional slab foundation, the moisture in the ground and the summer sun can cause that concrete slab to retain a lot of heat.Watch the full video to learn more about the pros and cons (and the science behind) pier & beam and slab foundations.
