The Construction Defect Center says, "We are urging homeowners to give us a call, if their home's roof has the Atlas shingle, in the hope of getting them some help, or relief. Unfortunately, Atlas no longer makes the Chalet shingle, so it is not possible to replace a portion, or sections of a roof with this specific type of roof shingle. Based on our research the Atlas Chalet roof shingle were installed on homes primarily in US Southeast, Atlantic States, and the Midwest." So why is the Atlas Chalet roof shingle an issue, for at least some homeowners? According to court records, it is alleged the Atlas Chalet roofing shingles began to blister within the first year of installation, and show significant loss of granulation, and these shingles had issues related to premature cracking. Unfortunately, as mentioned, it is impossible to have a roof replaced with a newer version of the Atlas Chalet shingle, or to replace sections of the roof's shingles, because Atlas no longer makes the Chalet shingle. The Construction Defect Center is urging homeowners whose roof has Atlas Chalet shingles to contact them immediately at 866-714-6466, especially if the homeowner has unsuccessfully attempted to get the manufacturer replace this specific type of roof shingle-with no success.
What is a Atlas Chalet Shingle? According to court records, the Atlas Chalet shingle was supposedly created to provide an affordable shingle that has the eye appeal of the more expensive architectural shingle. The Atlas Chalet was a shingle that was manufactured to provide a dimensional appearance in a granule overlay shingle. It is not an “architectural shingle” but rather achieved this look by utilizing random color palettes in a double thickness and creating a shadow line. The result is a 3 tab shingle that provides the eye-appeal of an architectural shingle. The Construction Defect Center says,"If you are a homeowner with a roofing product called the Atlas Chalet shingle, and this specific type of roof shingle has started to crack, blister or curl, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, and we will do our best to make certain you get to national caliber law firms that are working on the Atlas Chalet shingle litigation." http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
