In recent weeks you may have read news reports or seen television ads about a class action lawsuit against CertainTeed® Corporation, citing failure of that company’s fiber cement siding products.
It is important to know that not all fiber cement siding is the same.
James Hardie® fiber cement siding is formulated to perform in climates like Minnesota, using the highest quality materials, and a proprietary manufacturing process to produce products that have had a proven history of performance. James Hardie® is the industry pioneer in fiber cement siding and has perfected their products over many years of trials and testing.
The CertainTeed® siding that is the subject of the class action lawsuit is manufactured using different, lower grade materials and a very different process. As a result, some homeowners have experienced excessive warping, shrinkage, and cracking. CertainTeed® has agreed to pay more than $100 million in damages and legal fees.
Unfortunately, the same lawyers who created the CertainTeed® siding lawsuit are making the assumption that all fiber cement siding must be the same, and are now taking aim at James Hardie® siding customers.
