south Florida Stemwall foundation questions


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if they have worked with a home in south florida that was build in the 1950's with a stemwall foundation. Are the foundation floors  normally gravel or  concrete slab?  Our crawl space is so small that there is no way to access it, and we are having a lot of "soft spots in the flooring"   Just wanted to know what to expect when I start pulling up the subfloor.

By 'foundation floor', I think you may be referring to what I call the crawlspace grounds.  If so, it could be anything you want, or nothing at all, just soil.

Soft spots could be any of several things.  More description might bring better responses.
