We’ve gotten a very high number of complaints about CertainTeed shingles—in fact, we continue to get them. But if you purchased, installed—or even took on ownership of a home with defective CertainTeed Organic Shingles—and the shingles failed prematurely or did not perform in accordance with reasonable expectations, you may still be able to submit a claim form over at the CertainTeed Organic Shingle Class Action Settlement website. (Please note: do not submit a complaint here at LawyersandSettlements.com.)
To be sure, figuring out what type of shingles you have, when they were installed, how long the shingle warranty is, and how that all figures into if and when you need to submit a claim form by is no easy task. But the claims administrator has provided a chart showing the various warranty lengths for each of the CertainTeed Organic Shingle types (Custom Lok 25, Custom Saf-T-Lok/Saf-T-Lok, Custom Sealdon, Custom Sealdon 30, Hallmark Shangle, Hearthstead, Horizon, Shangle, Independence Shangle, Master Slab, Sealdon 20, Sealdon 25, Solid Slab).
Once you review the chart showing you what your warranty length is for your shingles, you can then determine when you either needed to submit a claim by (some claim submission dates have already passed) or if you still may be able to file a claim.
IMPORTANT: If you are not covered by the warranty or if you settled your warranty claim since August 1, 2006, your claim form must be postmarked or otherwise received by CertainTeed within 12 months after the effective settlement date of October 2, 2010.
If this applies to YOU—it’s last call for making a claim in the CertainTeed Organic Shingle Settlement—your claim form needs to be postmarked by October 2, 2011 (Sunday). So get moving!
