Frigid temps will slow and even stop the curing process but I doubt the house got that cold. Either the existing poly wasn't sanded or cleaned well enough or the poly was defective. I hate to say it but it's rare for the coating to be defective.

Well I did sand it down first before I added my poly. That what I was thinking maybe with the winter its not. and once spring comes it will cure. House is 58. have boiler problems so maybe thats why I hope.

Cool temps slow down the drying/curing time of oil base coatings, freezing or below can completely stop the drying process although at 58 degrees it should cure ok.
