Hello. First timer here. I have a wood sided house that has weathers serious heat and wind for many many years. It is extremely cracked, chipped and in need of serious help. Im in search of a recommended "filler" style primer/bonder that i can roll on to fill the cracks and gaps and help me get an even surface. Zinsser makes a product called Peel Stop but it is not designed to be a "filler" primer. Dunn Edwards makes a product called Bloc-fil that is designed for masonry and it IS a "filler". My dilemma is that Bloc-fil does not state anywhere on its data sheet that it is meant for wood. Anyone out there been in these shoes? Pics to follow... Thanks in advance.

Block fil is probably like the old elastomerics people slathered on their wood siding in the 80's and wondered why they needed a complete reside by the 90's. They don't have particularly good adhesion to wood, they trap moisture in, they are heavy as hell and can cause an existing coating that's barely hanging on already to fail in short order, and the list goes on. There's a reason the data sheets don't include wood as a viable substrate.

Is this your own home?

Yes, my own home. Built in ‘58. Plywood siding. I’m using Dunn Edwards paint. Was hoping to use a DE product.
