Crawlspace Waterproofing in Lombard, IL
There is a good chance that your house is built on an unhealthy environment if it has a crawlspace. In addition, it’s conceivable that hazardous air is rising throughout your home owing to the “stack effect,” which causes air in a building to flow upward. The health of your home as a whole depends on maintaining a healthy crawlspace because of the excessive humidity in the Chicagoland region.
It is possible to totally seal off whole crawlspaces and basements from ground vapor and moisture from the outside world with a crawlspace encapsulation. Flexi-Seal turns a dingy, dark foundation into a tidy, dry storage area that is able to support foot traffic.

Facts about Lombard, IL
Lombard is a village in DuPage County, Illinois, United States, and a suburb of Chicago. The population was 44,476 at the 2020 census.
Originally part of Potawatomi’s Native American landscape, the Lombard area was first settled by Americans of European descent in the 1830s. Lombard shares its early history with Glen Ellyn. Brothers Ralph and Morgan Babcock settled in a grove of trees along the DuPage River. Lombard developed to the east and Glen Ellyn to the west in what was known as Babcock’s Grove.
The 1848 arrival of the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad provided local farmers and merchants rail access to Chicago, and commercial buildings soon sprang up around the train station. Lombard was officially incorporated in 1869, named after Chicago banker and real estate developer Josia Lewis Lombard.
In 2008, Lombard declared April 6 to be “Ellen Martin Day” commemorating Ms. Martin’s historic victory for women’s suffrage.
William LeRoy built a home in the Italianate style on Lombard’s Main Street in 1881. LeRoy specialized in making artificial limbs for civil war veterans and lived in this house until 1900.
The house would eventually become the home of Harold Gray’s parents and the studio of Harold Gray, the originator of the Little Orphan Annie cartoon strip. Harold Gray used the home study to work on the Annie cartoons, and some features of the house are drawn into some of his cartoons, such as the grand staircase and the outer deck. Gray lived at 215 S. Stewart Ave in Lombard at this time. Later, he remarried and moved to the east coast. Harold Gray was a charter member of Lombard Masonic Lodge #1098, A.F. & A.M. in 1923.
