Recently I completed a small project using some cypress left from another larger project. I started coating the cypress using some older Polyurethane, satin finish, also left from an even earlier project. The next day I touched the finish and it was still damp. A day later it was still tacky even though it was in an air conditioned environment. Frustrated, I removed the finish with mineral spirits and steel wool, back to bare wood. Blaming the old finish, I bought new poly and applied a single thin coat. Four or five days later, in conditioned space, it was finally dry enough to handle. I think I ruled out the old paint, so is it the cypress… or what?
Properly install PVC trim products during cold weather to prevent expansion, contraction, and bowing issues. Warm up the trim before installation for better results.
