Basement Waterproofing Contractor/Company 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, city, coextensive with the town (township) of Milford, New Haven county, southwestern Connecticut, U.S. It lies on Long Island Sound northeast of the mouth of the Housatonic River. Settled in 1639 on land bought from the Paugusset Indians, it was probably named (1640) for Milford Haven, Wales, or Milford, England. In 1643 it became a part of New Haven colony, which in turn united with Connecticut colony in 1664. During the American Revolution, Milford militia drove off a small British landing force. Oysters and clams from Long Island Sound have always been important commercially. Agriculture, some light industry, and summer tourism provide the basis of the economy. Simon Lake invented his even-keel submarine torpedo boat there in 1894. Milford was chartered as a city in 1959, the year of town-city consolidation. Pop.

February 1, 1639, is the date the area then known as “Wepawaug” was purchased from Ansantawae, chief sachem of the Paugusset Tribe.

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.

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.
After World War II, the population swelled as GIs returned from the war and bought houses in the suburb of New Haven and Bridgeport called Milford.

Other industry followed most notably the consumer giants of Bic and Schick. Then the completion of I-95 in 1960, with its seven exits and entrances brought easy access. The Connecticut Post Shopping Center and other development followed rapidly. Development reached a peak in the 70s and 80s, leveled off in the early 90s and then picked up again in the late 90s until we reached our present population of over 52,000 and businesses that number over 2,000.
