Do or did you own a home or structure with CertainTeed Symphony shingles or CertainTeed fiberglass Horizon shingles installed on the roof? Are your CertainTeed Symphony shingles blistering, warping, or fading? Are your CertainTeed fiberglass Horizon shingles cracking, curling, losing granules, or otherwise not performing as you expected? You are not alone: CertainTeed customers across the country have experienced the same problems.
CertainTeed gave customers and those in the construction industry a number of reasons to choose their shingles. CertainTeed assured customers that they support their roofing products with the “strongest warranty protection available.” Additionally, CertainTeed advertised their Symphony shingles’ “incredible strength,” “remarkable durability,” “excellent weathering capabilities,” and “U.V. fade resistant surface technology for superior color stability.” It is no wonder so many customers purchased CertainTeed’s Symphony shingles and fiberglass Horizon shingles.
Despite CertainTeed’s lofty claims, Symphony shingles and fiberglass Horizon shingles have suffered from defects that cause them to prematurely fail. These problems can also cause damage to underlying homes and structures. CertainTeed customers are therefore forced to repair or replace their shingles far sooner than CertainTeed’s warranties promise. A similar problem has previously been the subject of a lawsuit involving other shingles manufactured by CertainTeed, but this problem of premature failure exists in CertainTeed’s Symphony shingles and fiberglass Horizon shingles as well.
