CertainTeed Shingles Lawsuit FAQs

  • What Problems Are Being Reported with CertainTeed Landmark, Independence, and Presidential Fiberglass Shingles?

    Shingles are a commonly used material that protects a home from rain, snow, and other elements by adding a protective layer over the roof. While CertainTeed Corporation markets its fiberglass shingles as being superior products and also provides a limited warranty, consumers have complained of at least the following problems with the CertainTeed Landmark, Independence, and Presidential shingles:

    • Severe degranulation
    • Degradation
    • Warping
    • Cracking
    • Adhesion problems

    According to consumers, these fiberglass shingles degrade and suffer from severe granule loss long before the expiration of the warranty period. In addition, these shingles may have trouble properly adhering and can fall or blow off the roof.

    As a result, rain and snow may spread to underlying structural elements of the home and cause extensive water damage.

  • Have Consumers Complained About CertainTeed’s Shingles in the Past?

    Yes. CertainTeed previously settled a number of class actions over its organic asphalt shingles. These lawsuits alleged that the adhesive used to attach the organic shingles to roofs was defective, which prevented the shingles from sticking properly. As a result, the shingles would become warped or blow off, leaving areas of the roof unprotected from the elements and allowing rain or snow to leak into underlying property.

    At this point, our lawyers are only looking into potential lawsuits on behalf of property owners with CertainTeed’s fiberglass shingles, not their organic asphalt shingles. However, since consumers allege that CertainTeed’s fiberglass shingles have caused similar property damage, our lawyers have reason to believe that these shingles may suffer from the same defect.

  • How Do I Know If I Have CertainTeed Landmark, Independence, or Presidential Shingles?

    You may be able to find information about the type of shingles on your property by checking any receipts and warranties for the shingles. You may also contact the contractor who built your home, or the roofing company that installed your shingles.

    It’s important to note that all shingles sold by CertainTeed after 2005 were fiberglass. Therefore, if you purchased and installed CertainTeed roof shingles after that year, then it is likely that your property is outfitted with fiberglass shingles.
