foundation types

Posted by Billy on June 24th, 1998 12:43 AM

We are about to build a new house and the builder says we can save a considerable amount of money by foregoing a basement and using a slab foundation. I am not familiar with slab foundations. Are they good foundations? Do they provide adequate support? I was told that the plumbing will be set inside the concrete, will that present any problems in the future if for some reason the pipes get clogged? I would appreciate any information I can get.
