Settlements have been reached with Building Materials Corporation of America (known as GAF Materials Corp.) (“GAF”) involving Timberline® roofing shingles (“Shingles”). The lawsuits claim a defect that might cause the roofing Shingles to prematurely crack, split or tear. GAF claims that the Shingles were not defective and that GAF’s warranty appropriately covers any problems.
The Settlements include two Classes covering Shingles made: (1) between 1999 and 2007 at GAF’s plant in Mobile, Alabama and (2) between 1998 and 2009 at other GAF manufacturing plants.
You may be included if you own any property in the United States with Timberline® Shingles made during the relevant time periods.
The benefits you may be eligible to receive are based on: (1) the location of your property, (2) where your Shingles were made, (3) the date your Shingles were installed and the date on which you make a claim, (4) the type and extent of damage to your Shingles, and (5) the size of your roof.
You may be eligible to receive: (1) replacement shingles (comparable to the Shingles installed) and/or (2) a cash payment. The Settlements will not reduce the benefits you may be entitled to under any existing GAF warranty.
