defective manuf. shingles


Looking for your like experiences in the Roofing business. Owens Corning produced an asphalt shingle labeled as Oakridge Shadow 40, but discontinued it in 2001 (yr?). In 2001, OC advertised a new product, called the Oakridge PRO 40. My home was roofed with the old shingle in 1995, but it started to degranulate within 5 yrs. Do not have the warranty believed to be dated 1995. Their newer warranty is dated 2001.
Unfortunately, my developer demanded we used the "architectural grade" of shingles by stating the Oakridge Shadow 40 MUST be installed,
via the homes association declaration that he created. So, several of us
who were built before 2001, perhaps more, are stuck with sloppy shingles,
already cracking.
Further, while Owens does agree to pay off, they pay off only for the new shingles, not for installation costs nor for tearoff work nor anything else.
Based on a reasonable estimate from a local roofing business, my costs are 4 times the check from Owens. Ouch.
Anyone know of any class action lawsuits against Owens or any other manufacturer of roofing materials? This is ridiculous. I will have to replace a roof because of manufacturer's error, not damage/hail/etc.
Thanks for reading this. Any thoughts?
