I have a home I just bought and when it rains, water comes in........... not in a leaking sense but under the wall of the basement in one place I guess there seems to be a crack in the bottom of the wall letting rain water in. What causes this? How do I fix this problem from reoccuring? It's a home built in 1959 and the basement is block foundation and painted.

My husband and uncle just had to do the same thing to our new house. They got some kind of sealant paint and applied it to the wall/floor. It needs to be heated so it will dry. Otherwise it won't work.
