GAF Cross Timbers Decking Class Action Lawsuit
Homeowners who used GAF Cross Timbers decking material in the construction of their deck are experiencing a myriad of problems. The Cross Timbers decking material is a composite material constructed of wood and plastic bound together with various agents allegedly making the product stronger than wood. The company promotes their Cross Timbers product as requiring much less upkeep than the traditional wood deck. The product is therefore typically much more expensive than ordinary treated lumber. However, according to many homeowners, the product is defective, and allows water to seep into the product, causing the decking to age prematurely. Because of the seepage of water, the decking is also susceptible to mold and mildew.
The Issues with GAF Cross Timbers
The class action lawsuit filed by multiple homeowners alleges that the decking product is defective, and can cause a variety of problems including:
- Mold and Mildew issues
In some extreme cases, the product is pulling away from the house or other boards causing liability issues for the homeowner in the event of an injury. If left untreated, the faulty decking could drastically diminish the property value of the home. Additionally, replacing or repairing the composite decking with a more reliable material can cost the homeowner thousands of dollars.
