We want to hear professional roofing contractors, who have a client that has the Atlas Chalet roofing shingles, because federal litigation over the Atlas Chalet shingle was filed in a federal court over alleged failures
(PRWEB) August 06, 2013
The Construction Defect Center says, "We want to hear professional roofing contractors if they have a client whose roof has the Atlas Chalet shingle product. According to court documents, it has been alleged these roofing shingles can blister within the first year of installation, and show significant loss of granulation and premature cracking. As a roofing contractor would know, it is impossible to have a roof replaced with a newer version of the Atlas Chalet shingle, or to replace sections of the roof's shingles, because Atlas no longer makes the Chalet shingle." For more information professional roofing contractors are urged to contact the Construction Defect Center at 866-714-6466.
The Construction Defect Center says, "Based on court records Atlas Chalet roofing shingles were installed on homes in Ohio, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Missouri, Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and other states. We want to try to help these homeowners get identified and we think professional roofing contractors are the best way, so we are hoping they, or their client homeowner, will call us at 866-714-6466, with the goal being compensation for the homeowner. http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
What is a Atlas Chalet Shingle? According to court records, 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 Atlas Chalet shingle was supposedly created to provide an affordable shingle that has the eye appeal of the more expensive architectural shingle. The Construction Defect Center says,"If you are a roofer and your client has the Atlas Chalet roof shingle, and or if you are a homeowner with a roofing product called the Atlas Chalet shingle please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, because according to court records this product is no longer being manufactured by the company that created this specific type of roofing shingle and it has been alleged in federal court there could be issues with the Atlas Chalet shingle related to cracking, blistering, and or curling." http://ConstructionDefectCenter.Com
