Class Action

GAF Timberline Shingles

In November 2013, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Building Materials Corporation of America for allegedly falsely advertising Timberline shingles. Among other things, the complaint alleges that the company represents the roofing shingles as meeting industry standards, as well as being high quality shingles that will last for decades without problems. However, in reality, the shingles do not meet the strength performance requirements set by the roofing industry and begin to suffer damage, degradation, and cracking as soon as they are installed, according to the plaintiffs. (Ashley et al v. Building Materials Corporation of America, d/b/a GAF Materials Corporation, Case No. 13-cv-03424, S. D. TX.).
