Atlas Chalet Shingles Defects: Premature Cracking and Blistering

Atlas Chalet Shingles Defects:
Premature Cracking and Blistering

Parker Waichman LLP is currently investigating legal claims for a class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers who purchased Atlas Chalet Shingles, manufactured by Atlas Roofing Corporation. The company marketed Chalet shingles as reliable, high quality product at an affordable price, but reports suggest that the roofing shingles crack and blister prematurely. Atlas Roofing no longer manufactures Atlas Chalet shingles, and now homeowners who attempt to contact the company report inadequate customer service. As a result, a number of consumers who purchased Atlas Chalet shingles are left with the bill for a new roof. If you or someone you know purchased Atlas Chalet shingles, our attorneys would like to speak with you.

Atlas Chalet Shingles May Prematurely Crack and Blister

In promoting their Chalet shingles, Atlas Roofing Corporation claimed that “Chalet gives you peace of mind at an affordable price.” The company also claimed that the shingles are resistant to algae and up to 80 mph winds. Reports from consumers who actually purchased the products however, indicate otherwise. A number of customers complain of premature cracking and blistering, sometimes in as little as one year after installation. The cracking and blistering of the shingles can lead to granule loss, where chunks of material dislodge from the allegedly defective shingles. As the Chalet shingles wear away and deteriorate over a short period of time, customers often found themselves investing extra time, labor and money in repairing or replacing their roofs. Instead of getting “peace of mind” from this product, Atlas Chalet shingles only led to a bigger bill and unnecessary stress.

Atlas Chalet shingles have been discontinued. Furthermore, despite the promise of a 30 year limited transferable warranty, a number of consumers who attempted to contact the company say that customer service is insufficient. As a result, customers who were promised a long-lasting, quality product are left in a situation where they are forced to foot the bill for a new roof soon after having new shingles installed.

Longer roofing warranties are sometimes used as a marketing tool rather than as a predictor of quality. The manufacturer’s reputation and specific terms of a warranty can be an important factor to consider. In fact, many companies attempt to avoid honoring their warranties for a variety of reasons. For example, a roofing company may refuse to honor a limited lifetime warranty by claiming that the shingles were improperly installed. Atlas Roofing Corporation, for instance, has denied that blistering is a construction defect and claims that the effect is purely aesthetic. Homeowners who see the damage firsthand, however, disagree.
