Basement Waterproofing And Foundation Specialist Milford, Connecticut
Your house is vulnerable to flooding. It’s inevitable that too much water in the ground or from heavy rain will penetrate your home and cause damage. But, amazingly, even in the face of increased water in the ground or during heavy rains, there’s a way to waterproof your home. Sundahl Waterproofing offers home waterproofing solutions for the walls and foundations of Larchmont. Often, homeowners simply are unaware that foundation waterproofing could prevent a flood. It’s a way of sealing off your foundation so that water cannot penetrate through porous surfaces or through gaps in construction. And remarkably, a house with waterproofing could avoid a flood where a next door neighbor without waterproofing suffers the flood.
Residential waterproofing is a cost-effective way to extend the lifespan of your home and make it a safe haven for your family. For expert quality service, Sundahl Waterproofing is a local source for everything you need to keep moisture, seepage and flooding at bay.
Water leaks or high moisture levels can mean more than costly repairs; they can also mean health risks. Mold and mildew can cause lung cancer and breathing problems, especially among young children, elderly persons, and those who already have asthma or other breathing conditions. Dehumidification and other moisture-control services can help you eliminate the chances of these health concerns.
Without residential waterproofing, water leaks can cause structural damage to your home. When you call us about fixing a leak, we make sure it’s fixed for good. While some of our competitors might do a half-hearted job that prompts repeat business, we’d rather do the job right and get additional business through satisfied customers who refer us to their friends and family.
Facts About Milford, Connecticut
Milford is a coastal city in New Haven County, Connecticut, United States, located between New Haven and Bridgeport. The population was 50,558 at the 2020 United States Census. The city includes the village of Devon and the borough of Woodmont. Milford is part of the New York-Newark Bridgeport, NY-NJ-CT-PA Combined Statistical Area.
This area was occupied by indigenous peoples for thousands of years. At the time of English encounter, it was territory of the Paugusset (an Algonquian-speaking tribe). English colonists affiliated with the contemporary New Haven Colony purchased land which today comprises Milford, Orange, and West Haven on February 1, 1639 from Ansantawae, chief of the local Paugusset. They knew the area as Wepawaug, named for the small river which runs through the town. Later the settlers named streets in both Milford and Orange as Wepawaug.
The settlers built a grist mill by the Wepawaug River in 1640, to take advantage of its water power.
During the Revolutionary War, the Milford section of the Boston Post Road, a vital route connecting Boston, New York and other major coastal cities, was blockaded by Continental forces, and Fort Trumbull was constructed to protect the town. The site of the blockade is commemorated by the Liberty Rock monument.
By 1822, the town had grown large enough that residents in the northern and eastern sections of Milford chartered the Town of Orange. During the next century and a half, the remaining section of Milford was known for shipbuilding, farming and oystering. Some industrial facilities were also developed in town.
Because of its location on Long Island Sound, during the later 19th century, Milford also became known as a beach resort for residents of New Haven and Bridgeport.
February 1, 1639, is the date the area then known as “Wepawaug” was purchased from Ansantawae, chief sachem of the Paugusset Tribe. Settlers began arriving shortly thereafter and began to build the town known as Milford. Townspeople played a part in the development of the United States. Adventurers from Milford reached out and founded several other communities and explored afar.
Buried treasure is said to exist on a small island the Indians called “Poquahaug”, just a mile off Silver Sands Beach. It is a recognized fact that Captain Kidd and other pirates sailed and hid along the Connecticut coast. It’s no wonder that iron chests filled with “loot” are rumored to be buried on the land called Charles Island!
Three governors of Connecticut called Milford their home. Fort Trumbull was built to provide protection in the late 1700s during the Revolutionary War. Yes, George Washington dined and rested here! During the Civil War, Milford was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Although primarily agrarian, shipbuilding, oystering, small industry and trade on the open seas from the harbor were part of the local economy. The early 1900’s brought the leather industry along with the making of boots, hats and shoes. Milford was also famous for carriages, which were sold throughout the centuries.
