Surface repairs with materials like mortar or caulk will not permanently seal the crack. These are merely topical. It may look good at first, but water will find its way through and push the surface material out with it.


Your best option is to have a professional seal the crack by injecting it with an epoxy polymer. This solution fills the full depth of the crack to prevent further erosion and eliminate the effects of further foundation settlement.
