I painted the sheet rock right below a skylight several months ago. During the last several months inside condensation on the inside of the skylight would drip down on my painted sheet rock causing ugly streaking. What about sealing the skylight with duck brand window film? Do you think that would keep the moisture off of my once beautiful paint job?

Kathy – IN
Three years ago I refinished my bathtub and now the finish is peeling off. Can I re-finish it again with renew again or do I have to take off the old re-finish product. Also, does the renew product last?

We installed brown vinyl siding about 10 years ago. Some of the siding has now developed a white chalky surface, we have been told it is an oxide. What do you recommend we do to clean the siding with the remove the chalky surface? We have contacted the manufacture Novik but they haven’t/won’t respond. We have looked for commercial products that are designed to remove vinyl oxide but have only found products designed for masonry materials. We have tried several home remedies (internet) Vinegar and Water, TSP with Soap and Water and Soap with Bleach, none of these products worked.
