The leading home foundation type found in several of San Antonio’s older neighborhoods and cottage districts, especially in homes built before the 1950's, are Pier and Beam foundations. However, pier and beam foundations are prone to drywall cracks, sticking doors and windows, sloping or sinking floors among other issues. Poor soil is often to blame, but inferior construction, insect damage, and moisture retention can also play a part.
One solution to these problems associated with pier and beam foundations was the introduction of the slab foundation. Although sturdier in many ways, this home foundation type is not without its fair share of problems as well. Concrete by nature shrinks as it cures and is prone to cracking and breaking.
