Monolithic or floating slab ?


My draftsman and my concreter at at odds, I want to build a detached garage, the concreter is saying that a monolithic slab is OK but the draftsman is saying no one uses them anymore for residential.
I live in NC , so it's sandy soil and no freezing to worry about.
Obviously a mono slab is going to cost less, but I like sleeping at night knowing all is A OK, anyone have any ideas ?

Young draftsman?

Who's warranting the work? Draftsman have GL ins.? Contractor should, I'd go with the contractors suggestion
