In November 2013, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Atlas Roofing Corporation alleging that its Atlas Chalet Shingles did not perform as represented in the product’s various marketing materials (including brochures and product labels). Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company advertises that the roofing shingles meet applicable building codes and industry standards when, in reality, they do not. In addition, plaintiffs claim the company represents that the shingles would last 30 years when, in reality, the shingles are defective causing them to blister and crack before 30 years have passed. (Brooks et al v. Atlas Roofing Corp., Case No. 13-cv-00187, S. D. MS.).
