Default Any Remedies for This? (Pics)

Several of the doorframes in this house have this cracking. The HO has said that she doesn't care about it, but I don't want to leave it like that. Any products out there you guys could recommend? Anyone used Mad Dog primers for stuff like this? [IMG][/IMG]

I'm not sure what you could do to to prevent future cracking in other places without doing the deed, if that's what you're asking. Interested to see if anyone has used the MD Crack Fix (as you seem to be suggesting) and checked up on it 5 years later.

We have used mad dog on casings like this but have no idea how well they held up, same type of HO, they didn't mind the cracked look and wanted to keep the cost down.

Is there enough profit to rip out and replace the affected trim on just the affected areas?

If you plan on sanding and priming, we have used 5 minute mud that has hardened (after about 7-8 minutes) and created chunks that we rub up against the cracks to fill the void. Sand just before completely cured, prime and paint as usual. If you have all team members do this while the mud is hardening even more, then the labor aspect is greatly reduced. FWIW.

If it were me and if there was enough profit, I would save on labor and replace the trim itself to really "wow" the client. It doesn't look like replacing the affected trim may even be an option for you though, as this does not look to be standard trim you can readily get at a contractor's discount.

Yes, the trim would have to be custom made to match the profile, so it's not really feasible in regard to schedule and cost. Stripping is the logical option, but is labor intensive and toxic.

My thought was to use a filler and prime over, with the knowledge that many of the cracks will likely return down the road.

I think I might try the mad Dog crack fix, but I'd really like to see how smooth it gets. I just imagining something like that not having very good flow and leveling.
Also, their website says to use a latex topcoat, and I not sure how the BM Advance I will be using fully qualifies as a latex paint.

You could also use FPoE brushing putty. Or thin wood filler and wipe on / wipe off.

Old homes. Old brittle oil paint. We see it in old cottages most often.

My first thought would be Peel Bond/Mad dog too, but I've never tried sanding it smooth, and my guess is.. you can't.

Maybe if you sprayed it? I haven't tried that. I don't think I want it in my pump, and imagine my pump feels the same way about it.

Bondo "red stuff" glazing putty is probably what I would use.

Ok guys, it looks like "Trim Magic" from XIM is the product for this one, as it accepts both latex and oil topcoats. FPoE rep said the Brushing Putty is more for grain filling than my application. As far as others filler suggestions, they are going to be to labor intensive given the cracking on moulding profiles. I'm still not sure if the XIM will leave a satisfactorily smooth surface, but I'm told it can be sanded.

latex and elastomeric only for peel bond and trim magic topcoats.

Dang it! Somehow it didn't seem right that it should be different from Mad Dog as far as topcoat, but the gal I talked to from XIM (now Part of Rustoleum) said ok with "latex and oil topcoats." But I'm more inclined to trust an experienced painter. Did you learn the hard way, were you told, or did you read about topcoat compatibility? Though not a true oil, the Advance does leave a relatively inflexible coating. Would a possible workaround be to topcoat with latex primer, followed by the Advance? Obviously I can't afford to have this looking worse a few years down the line than it does now.

It is from the TDS off of XIM's website.
