Case Information

Building Materials Corp. of America Asphalt Roofing Shingle Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 8:11-mn-02000 (D.S.C.)

Case Description

In the lawsuits, Plaintiffs make claims about the durability of certain Timberline® Shingles. Plaintiffs claim 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 (cracking, splitting or tearing of shingles is all referred to in this Notice as “cracking” or “cracked”). Plaintiffs claim that the shingles were defective. GAF claims that the shingles were not defective and that GAF’s warranty appropriately covers any problems. The parties resolved the matter by compromise before reaching the merits.
