Problems With Atlas Shingles


Ok, I'm confused. I see posts from Paragon Exterior that says you think the problem is the Atlas Shingles, then I see another post from Paragon Exterior that says it's not the Atlas shingles, it's the improper installation...are there several people posting from Paragon Exterior with different opinions ???

Problems With Atlas Shingles


For a roof to seal... The tar strip that seals should seal regardless of ventilation or improper installation... I'm not saying I've ever installed anything improperly , I'm just annoyed with Atlas people saying that it is improper installation or ventilation.... So then can you explain why Atlas has sold shingles under other company names and had the same law suits against them? I just think out of the 100 or so roofs we have done that we ended up with numerous defective shingles? Definitely! But I will never in my life recommend the cheaper route for customers ever again.... I would rather have certainteed or gaf anyway... Shingles are so much better! By far!

Would you be interested in discussing a class action settlement against Atlas with me and/or my attorney?
If so, I'll send you my personal e-mail address. Thanks

Out of curiosity ( I don't deal with atlas at all so I don't know) have they (atlas) paid their warranty claims according to their warranty literature?

Problems With Atlas Shingles


Atlas has only honored their warranty in class action settlements when people went together, hired an attorney and forced their hand according to what I've found. That's what I'm trying to do is get enough people togethr for a class action settlement because that's the only way attorneys will take the case. If you're reading this and have a problem with Atlas shingles similar to this, please let me know if you're interested. I am hiring a forensic engineer to look at our roof so we can get an ubiased, expert witness for the suit.

The attorney wants 20 or more people with a similar problem to file a complaint, so that's what I'm trying to find.

Problems With Atlas Shingles


I have had 2 roofing contractors to look at my roof and say that I had hail damage. When the adjusters came out, they told me it was my shingle. My shingles are 10 yrs old with a 30 yr warranty. I am interested in knowing what kind of class actions are being taken against the mfg. The only good news I received, is that if a storm blew some of my shingles off the whole thing would be replaced. Not a very happy camper.

Right now we have a Forensic Engineer scheduled for a roof evaluation on March 10th. I will post his expert / unbiased opinion.

Problems With Atlas Shingles


I have extensive blistering on 7 year old Atlas Chalet shingles, sounds like Atlas will probably be unresponive to warranty claims so I'd also like to join any class action suit that gets filed.

I also have extreme blistering on the Atlas Chalet shingles on my home, and would be interested in holding Atlas accountable for a defective product.

Problems With Atlas Shingles


rmyers12,

Have you found enough people to go for class action? I have 4 year old storm master shingles and they are certainly defective due to heavy blistering according to the 3rd party roofer that took a look at our roof. We filed a warranty claim with Atlas, and of course they flatly denied their responsibility siting "inadequate ventilation" as the cause. I am very interested in joining your suit if it is going forward. Please send me an message.

Thanks
