Who Are the Class Members?

Class Members include those who owned a property with CertainTeed Organic Shingles installed at any time during their ownership as of December 15, 2009, or who retained the right to make a claim after selling the property. These shingles include various brands manufactured between July 1, 1987, and 2005.

Class Members may fall into different tiers based on their relationship to the property and the shingles:

  • Original purchasers of the shingles or first owners of new construction with the shingles installed
  • Subsequent purchasers who acquired a building with the shingles already installed and are covered under the original warranty
  • Claimants who previously settled a warranty claim with CertainTeed

There are exclusions, such as those who previously resolved a legal claim concerning these shingles or certain professionals associated with real estate and construction.

  • Subsequent Purchasers: If covered under the warranty, may also receive a prorated amount.
