Many consumers have experienced problems with several lines of CertainTeed Shingles becoming damaged and failing within only a few years of their installation. Often times, significant work is required to repair the damage. As a result, several lawsuits were filed throughout the country against CertainTeed. These diverse actions were consolidated into one action held in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The case number is 2:07-md-01817-LP or MDL Docket No. 1817.

Complaints have been filed in Iowa and Pennsylvania. Both allege that the shingles fail to perform as marketed in that moisture invasion destroys the their ability to prevent water damage sooner than is reasonably expected. Because of this defect the shingles regularly deteriorate, blister, crack and curl in advance of the expiration of CertainTeed's warranty periods.

The complaints allege that CertainTeed knowingly and intentionally concealed and failed to disclose that they actually had no intention of providing the services set forth in their warranties. Similarly, CertainTeed has failed to implement any changes to their shingle procedures or warranty procedures to remedy the defects.

CertainTeed is a large building materials manufacturer that produces shingles that are later branded as Horizon, Independence, Hearthstead, Hallmark, Woodscape, Sealdon and War-Sealdon.
