IF YOU OWN A HOME OR OTHER STRUCTURE IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA ON WHICH THE CONTINENTAL, SHADOWLINE, OR WOOD SHAKE PANELS MANUFACTURED BY DURA-LOC ROOFING SYSTEMS LIMITED WERE INSTALLED AT ANY TIME DURING JULY 1, 1996 TO MAY 12, 2006
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving the Continental, Shadowline, and Wood Shake stone-coated steel roof panels (the “Panels”) manufactured by Dura-Loc Roofing Systems Limited (“Dura-Loc”). The lawsuit claims that the Panels contain an inherent design defect wherein the surface coating of the Panels deteriorate well before the warranted 25-year period. The lawsuit further claims that Metals USA, Inc. (“MUSA”) is liable as Dura-Loc’s successor-in-interest. MUSA denies that it has any liability as Dura-Loc’s successor-in-interest, that Plaintiffs’ claims have merit, and that it has done anything wrong. All of the parties have agreed to settle.
