Slab Foundation

In Texas, there are two main types of foundations used to construct houses. Slab, or slab-on-grade, foundations are the most common and most cost efficient types of foundations. Pier and Beam foundations were preferred up until the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, when slab foundations became the norm for home construction.

Cost Effective Foundations

Slab foundations are more inexpensive than pier and beam foundations and can lower the price of construction significantly. In fact the difference in price between the two is often more than the average cost of Foundation Repair (usually between $4500 and $6500 in the Austin area). Not only are they cheaper, but they are designed to move uniformly. Likewise, slab foundations are continually being refined and improved upon to increase their strength and resistance to cracking.

Specializing in Slab Foundation Repair

Superior Foundation Repair has chosen to specialize in slab foundation repair in order to offer our clients the best service possible. At Superior we believe “the Jack of All Trades is the Master of None”, thus, we focus on repairing faulty or failing slab foundations in the Central Texas Area. Repairing a slab foundation is much different than repairing a pier and beam foundation, however, some companies offer both types of repair, aware that the consumer may not know the difference.
