Block vs. Concrete Foundations

Posted by Andrew E. Schwartz on November 17th, 1997 07:41 AM

I am considering the purchase of new construction
in NJ. It seems everybody around here uses cinder
blocks for foundations. In CT., where I grew up,
poured concrete is used for foundations. Could you
contrast the two? I would be interested in cracking,
leakage, ability to repair (if necessary), etc.

Should I insist upon concrete or will cinder blocks
be fine. I was told that the cost isn't much
different. Thank you.
