We have a brick house with a basement, but when it rains heavily, water will seep between the concrete foundation and the sill plate. Can I just caulk from the inside at the joint where these two materials meet, or is there something else that needs to be done?
Forget the caulking, it will just encourage the water to find another way into the basement. If the problem is frequent enough to warrant the time and expense you should consider installing a drainage system to intercept and divert the water away from the basement walls.
