Maibec Wood Shingles Class Action

MONTRÉAL, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - A proposed class action lawsuit has been issued against Maibec Inc., a Québec manufacturer of natural wood shingles and siding.  The action alleges that Maibec wood shingles and siding are prone to premature failure, including warping, peeling, cracking, buckling and curling, despite a thirty-year warranty.

The petitioners, Helen E. Raleigh and Steven Raleigh, own a home that had Maibec wood shingles and siding installed on it in 2005.  By 2012, the siding was curling and splitting.  Mr. and Ms. Raleigh contacted Maibec several times, but Maibec refused to proceed with the necessary repairs.  Mr. and Ms. Raleigh were eventually forced to cover the $40,000.00 cost of the repairs out of their own pocket to prevent further damage to their home.

Similar actions have been filed in the United States.

Mr. and Ms. Raleigh's Québec lawyers, Siskinds Desmeules s.e.n.c.r.l., will seek authorization for the action to proceed as a class action from the Québec court.
