DFW Clay soil: slab or pier and beam?
Hi. We are looking at a lot and getting an initial cost estimate from the builder. We're transplants from the north and have had a P&B since we've moved to Texas so we are most knowledgable about P&B. Most building seems to be done with slabs as it is thousands cheaper, but slabs are much more costly to fix when things shift. If you live in the area, would you pay a premium for a P&B over a slab? If yes, about how much? I'm leaning towards a P&B foundation for the new build, but don't want to get killed when it comes to resale. Thanks for your help.
