I'm considering building a detached garage and I've been asked if I'll be using a Block or Poured foundation. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each ? Also what are the cost considerations ?

I'll be contracting the foundation work.

This is kind of a personal preference. Both are good. I prefer a poured foundation, because it is quick, easy to install, low on labor, less cost, etc. Block is higher in labor, takes longer, and you still have to pour a concrete foundation under the blocks.
