      We are putting a addition on in the spring and we do not have a ton of money, but i want it done right. I was told if we put a cement slab down instead of a foundation that it could shift. Is this a true story? I would like you to tell me how you feel about slabs vs. full foundations. Thankyou for all youre help. Debbie

      It all depends on where you live. I’m from the
      northeast and I hardly see slabs for foundations
      because of thr freeze/thaw cycle here. If your from
      the south where there is little chance for freeze/
      thaw the slab will work fine. However if your from
      the north you must build a foundation with footings
      below the frost line. One advantage if your from the
      north and must build a foundation, you can build a crawl
      space and save about 1/3 fo the cost of a full foundation.
