Atlas Chalet Defective Shingles Class Action Lawsuit
Atlas Chalet shingles, distributed by Atlas Roofing Corporation, were installed on a number of new homes until 2010 when the company ceased production. The Atlas Chalet shingle is a three tab shingle designed to look like an architectural shingle, providing a more expensive look without the architectural shingle price. Atlas Chalet shingles were initially marketed with a 30 year warranty.
Although Atlas Chalet shingles were marketed as a thirty year product, lawsuits against Atlas Roofing contend Atlas shingles can fail within a year of installation, causing widespread problems and consequential damage for homeowners, including complete replacement of the roof.
Allegedly, the product allows moisture in the form of rain and/or snow to seep into the shingles, causing premature failing of the product, sometimes within a year. More alarming is that some homeowners have reported more extensive damage to their homes resulting from the allegedly defective product, caused when moisture leaks into the house, sometimes costing the homeowners thousands in repairs, and/or requiring a complete replacement of the roof.
Common Problems with Atlas Chalet Shingles
Although Atlas discontinued production of the Chalet shingles in mid-2010, assistance from the company to remedy the problems caused by the shingles has proven futile. Homeowners have experienced a wide array of problems including:
- Moisture penetration
- Reduced life expectancy
- Early granule loss of shingle
- Interior water damage caused from leakage
