New driveway

Had a new driveway poured and now I have a 4 foot long gap about 3/8" wide between driveway and foundation that didn't get sealed with the felt (not sure what it actually is) strip. Now water leaks into my crawl space. What can I use to seal the gap between foundation and driveway. Keep in mind that the felt is there it just doesn't seal. It looks like the foundation wall has a slight bow in it and that is the reason for the gap.

The is a company called Sika that makes a tenacious sealer. It comes in 2 size caulking tubes and a few colors. You can use that to seal against water.
You can pick it up at Home Deopt or mason supply stores. There are other similiar products on the market if you can't get that one.

Might try this: Deck-o-seal is used on a pool to fill the intentional ~ 1/2 gap between the pool coping and contrete walkways. Lasts for years, flexible, etc. Available at any pool supply local or online.
