When you take pictures post them here for all to see if you can. I would want to see a wide shot picture of the entire side of the house, from the outside, where you have water issues.
Quite often the water can be controlled with proper grading, gutter fixes, downspout extensions, window well covers, etc. Other outside things can, and should, be done first as well before caulking up a crack inside.
