Default Bondo on concrete?

My building stucco on concrete block construction has several cracks. I am considering repairing the cracks by use of bondo after cleaning them out. Has anyone had experience with this?

If its a stair step tpe crack following the mortar joint and its not too bad then caulk it. The Caulk will flex and pospone the return of the crack.

Yep, like they said above, a flexible patch is best. Just be sure you use a caulk that is paintable. I've seen people make that mistake many times. Paint will NOT stick to silicone no matter what you do. Read the label carefully and remember that you get what you pay for. Make sure it is Exterior, paintable and high quality.

They make a special caulk for cement cracks. Comes in a standard caulking tube. Don't use bondo as it absorbs water.
