SLAB vs Crawl-in space DILEMMA

Posted by Andy on October 15th, 2002 01:27 PM

I am planning to buy a house here in Charlotte,NC. I am interested in this particular house which has SLAB foundation. The BIG question is shd I buy it or not? As I am not very comfirtable with slab foundation limitaion that if tomorrow plumbing of house leaks first it will be very difficult to detect where it is leaking and second it will be damn expensive(someone said 12k-14k in one of the threads here).
This is my first house buying experience. Can any of you GURUS can help me sort out this Dilemma?
The same house with crawl space willcost 10K extra I think in this Charlotte market.Shd I worry abt buying a house with SLAB or shd I feel OK as now we have better technolgy and all these leaks are things of past :-) ?
