Ceiling cracks or light lines

I have done some painting in the past and I find that most homes that experience lines in the ceilings are due to plaster walls or light plastering in older homes as a noise barrier. In most of my past applications, a coat or two of undercaoting, not stain killer will stop this for several years. Changes in temperature from summer to winter will continue the light lines but the undercoating will cover for at least five years.
