Defective Roof Shingles

Dura-Loc Panels Installed on Roof

Metals USA, Inc. (MUSA) doesn’t make roof panels, but it is taking responsibility for the deterioration of roof panels made by Dura-Loc, a company whose assets it bought. The complaint, which designated MUSA as Dura-Loc’s successor-in-interest, charged that the panels are defective, with the surface coating deteriorating well before the twenty-five-year period they were warranted for. 

Roof with Monier Tiles

This settlement has been a long time coming. The complaint, filed in 2012, alleged that Monier, Inc. falsely advertised that certain kinds of its roofing tiles were maintenance-free, had permanent color, or would last for fifty years. Unfortunately, the plaintiffs claimed that the slurry coating had come off and exposed the bare concrete below.

This class action lawsuit claims that IKO “Cambridge AR” roof shingles are defective and prone to premature blistering, tearing, cracking, delamination, granule loss, degradation, and loss of adhesion at the seal strip between adjacent shingles.

The plaintiffs in this lawsuit allege that shingles manufactured from January 1, 1999 through December 31, 2007 at a GAF plant in Mobile, Alabama and from January 1, 1998 through December 31, 2009 at all other GAF manufacturing plants might prematurely crack, split, or tear.  They claim that the products are not durable and defective.

This class action alleges that Timberline roofing shingles made by Building Materials Corporation of America (known as GAF Materials Corp.) have a defect that causes them to prematurely split, crack, or tear.

This lawsuit alleges that Tamko manufactured and sold defective roof shingles that failed to perform according to advertised product warranties in violation of state consumer protection laws.

Atlas Chalet Shingles

The lawsuit alleges that the Chalet brand shingles sold by Atlas contain a design or manufacturing defect which causes them to blister and crack. This leads to early granulate loss and increased moisture absorption, which can cause damage to the structures on which they are installed.
