My wife & I are considering purchasing a two-story home built on a slab foundation. The home is in the San Francisco Bay area where weather is generally not a concern, though occaissional heavy rain & termites are issues to continually guard against for all homeowners in this region. What are the pros/cons of a slab foundation (vs. perimeter foundation w/ posts/footings & a crawl space) & what should we be concerned with or watchful for?
