Drylok Extreme paint on my vinyl window casing and utility sink!

I had new vinyl windows installed in the basement last year. I had someone paint the basement wall/block with Drylok Extreme... This was a few months ago. I just noticed there is some drylok paint on my window casing/frame and also on my utility sick inner and outter. Can someone please tell me how I can remove this paint from both without ruining! Like I sad, this was painted a few months ago and is pretty dry...

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Products like 'goof off' and 'oops' work well for removing latex paint but I don't know if it will work on drylok.

It may be that your best bet will be to gently scrape off the offending paint, use soap and water as a lubricant.

Call the painter back. He should be cleaning it!

Trust me, he also framed my basement and let me tell you, I will NOT be calling him back....

I will try soap and water and lightly scrape... I have some on the utility sink.. Also noticed he painted the shut off valves to that as well!!!! AWWWWWWWW!

I have the same problem. A friend suggested Goo Gone but I am afraid to try it before finding out if it will likely (or not) damage the vinyl casing.

I'd be very curious to know if the gentle scraping (would be VERY time consuming for me as there is a LOT of paint on the casing) worked.

Any advise, suggestions appreciated.

Thanks!
Kathy

Welcome to the forums Kathy!

Goo Gone and similiar products can damage vinyl, it can be used but care must be used to not let it set long on the vinyl - it will soften it up just like it does the latex paint.

Scraping works but again, care must be used to avoid marring the vinyl.

There is no magic bullet
