In re: CertainTeed Fiber Cement Siding Litigation, MDL No. 11-2270 (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania).
We have joined other firms and brought several class action lawsuits alleging that “CertainTeed WeatherBoard” siding is prone to cracking, surface flaking, warping, shrinking and crumbling. In addition, our lawsuits allege that some of this product looks like “water saturated cardboard” when exposed to rain and water. Additionally, our lawsuits allege that CertainTeed has failed to honor the terms of its warranty, and refused to repair, replace or refinish their defective siding as promised.
Consumers purchase expensive cement siding to protect and beautify their homes. These apparent defects are problematic and result in trouble and expense for the homeowners involved.
UPDATE: On March 20, 2014, the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania granted final approval of a $103 million all cash settlement. For details, go to certainteedshinglesettlement.com
