Foundation cracks


I'm new here. I've been living in this house for 3 years. When I bought it there was many recent renovations done to it. I'm quite happy with it. The main issue I'm having is there is a crack in the otherwise solid foundation. This was caused by a front step that had sunk and pulled the rebar causing the crack. I have since removed the stairs. It has been patched and sealed from the inside. Now I'm looking for sugestions on how to go about fixing the out side in the summer. I only get a small amount of water during the spring thaw and after a heavy rain. Any sugestions from other members would be greatly apprieciated. Don

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I took the liberty of moving this to the appropriate sub-forum.
You'll likely get very little help asking questions in the Introductions section.

I think most will want a picture or two to illustrate where, how big, relation to the leaking area, etc...

Pictures are worth a thousand words, and usually generate your best answers.
