Halunen Law has filed a class action lawsuit CertainTeed Corporation on behalf of their client Monique Orieux. The lawsuit alleges that CertainTeed’s WeatherBoards Fiber Cement Siding have a defective design that causes the siding to crack, warp, discolor, shrink, and in some cases fall off the building. The lawsuit seeks monetary compensation, on behalf of Ms. Orieux and other WeatherBoards siding owners, to replace allegedly defective CertainTeed WeatherBoards siding as well as a court order requiring CertainTeed to honor its warranty obligations.
