I recently came across this interesting article about a class action arising from defective fiber cement siding.
According to the article. CertainTeed changed the way it made the siding starting in 2002. At that time, they started using fly ash instead of grain and silica sand in the siding. The fly ash has different physical characteristics including an increased water absorption. This has apparently resulted in long-term defects in the product.
This sounds somewhat similar to numerous other construction defect cases that we have looked at. The lawyers at Hendren & Malone are currently working on class actions relating to defective Chinese drywall.
