IKO Organic Shingles Class Action Lawsuit

Seeger Weiss is investigating claims for a class action suit against IKO for defective organic roofing shingles. The company claims that they “set the standard” in the roofing industry. However, IKO’s standard may have been set too low. It is alleged that between approximately 1979 and 2007 the company manufactured and sold various brands of organic shingles that suffer from premature deterioration and wear. Ironically, IKO advertises its shingles as “time-tested and true,” when that does not appear to be the case.
It is alleged that the organic shingles are susceptible to moisture which causes them to wear prematurely. As a result, the shingles crack and blister and ultimately can peel off the roof. When consumers complain to IKO, they are given the runaround. IKO insists that consumers go through a burdensome and time-consuming warranty claim process to remedy the situation. IKO sometimes offers cash compensation to affected consumers, but the compensation does not cover the full cost of replacement and labor.
