I have an older Florida home, concrete block construction on a slab. In one corner I have a seepage problem that was unnoticed until after I did some remodeling. Evidently, water is getting into the house via below surface cracks, presumably where the walls rest on the foundation. I am looking for recommendations on how to seal this from the outside, as I think it would be easier and a lot cheaper to trench along the foundation as opposed to tearing everything out and doing this from the inside. Thanks!!

Marine resin works well.

best way to prevent seepage

To seal the wall from the outside: apply a prime coat of xxxxxxxxxxxxx, apply a sealing bead of xxxxxat the wall/floor junction, then surface coat with xxxxxxxxAlso see: xxxxxxxxxx.htm
Bonding with great strength while waterproofing and sealing large gaps in concrete is no problem for xxxxxxxxliquid rubber adhesive coating and caulking products. The high strength bonding and flexibility assures a complete seal for many years.
