CertainTeed Class Action Settlement? Details in Post along with website info

February 11, 2010


The above link contains information about a class action settlement on the CertainTeed roof shingles.

Wouldn’t it be interesting to know how many roof totals adjusters have done for shingles not resealing due to the premature wear and tear mentioned in this article. I’m curious if insurance carriers have enough details-doubtful- in their wind/roof claim files to go back and recover through this settlement? Any ideas readers?

For the class action website we previously wrote about, here is a link to our prior blog on this topic:


I double checked CertainTeed’s press releases and there is no news yet posted http://www.certainteed.com/pressroom/

Are you getting any Chinese Drywall liability or property claims? Is it the new “Mold Gold” as Trader likes to call it?

Very interesting. Last night I got a call from a firm owner wanting to know what I knew about Chinese drywall claims. I promised to research it when I had a chance to since I’m still playing catch up.

This morning what do I run across but a Harleysville Construction Litigation Claim Manager posting a discussion question in his Claims group. Here is a link if you can help him out. This would be great training informations for all independents working daily commercial liability claims:

Chinese Drywall Claims- Are you getting these claims?

This is interesting. I got a call yesterday wondering what I knew about Chinese Drywall Claims. Zip…since I’m Training but that also intrigued me. Today I then ran across a Linked in Discussion question by a Claims Manager for Construction defect claims wanting to know if anyone knew about it.

Here is a link to this Claim Managers question. I’ll be very interested to see if anyone from our group can provide more details.
