Got to repaint the outside of my place, I have several hairline cracks, what's the best way of filling them, silicone, painters caulk, or just normal "polyfilla"

I had the same problem with my old house!
I just caulked over the cracks and painted it when still wet and that sorted it!!
Don't use silicon as f*ck all sticks 2 that!!

Decorater's caulk for external render cracks? you are shitting me?!
Cut the crack into a V with a 4 inch grinder (diamond blade obviously) then fill with sand and cement or Toupret exterior filler. Caulk will keep opening up. do it once do it properly.
