A raised foundation means there is a crawl space measuring minimum 16in per LABDS code allowing for adequate space underneath the property.
Pier and Post systems provide the house with support throughout the entire foundation evenly distributing the weight. The Pier is the base, which is made of concrete. The Post is a 4 x 4 piece of plywood that rests directly on top of the Pier.
The Stem Wall is used to uphold the structure’s integrity by securing the foundation down. The wall is built around the foundation helping to keep the home from moving.
