Seawall Repair in Milford and Stratford Ct
Milford and Stratford were battered by tropical storm Irene and hammered again by Hurricane Sandy.
The State of Connecticut as a whole has been hit with storm surges more than anywhere else lately. The damaged bulkheads and sea walls came from not only the high winds, but also the extreme high tide.
Usually the wind will make giant waves that alone could cause problems with the a bulkhead or Seawall, but the unusually high tide made for more water than the majority of the marine construction was originally designed for.
Some of the older Stone Walls and concrete bulkheads seemed to fair alright, but others were undermined by the water and have problems now with the rip rap and lose stones.
Many of the Seawalls are not just simple repairs that can be done by just putting a little grout in the cracks, as the structural integrity of the sea walls has been compromised.
Some of the walls cannot even be constructed by a contractor without new bulkhead design by a Seawall Engineer.
The permit process is also a tedious process that not just anyone can do. Many homeowners need help filing for the correct permits to get the restoration and repair filed correctly with the cities and state.
