AZEK Building Products Inc. and CPG International LLC, makers of AZEK building materials, consolidated three class actions filed between October 2012 and January 2014 claiming that their top of the line products were not durable or suitable for outdoor use.
AZEK decking is a PVC product designed and marketed for outdoor installation and use in decks on residential property. Exposure to sunlight, and particularly to ultraviolet light, caused the AZEK decking to undergo discoloration, claimed the 11 different plaintiffs in the lawsuits. In addition, UV radiation also led to “chalking,” a surface blemish that results from the release of chemicals within the decking materials. PVC decking exposed to sunlight eventually became brittle and more susceptible to scratching and impact damage, according to the lawsuit.
Homeowners who purchased AZEK decking could get up to $2,000 under the terms of a consolidated class action settlement.
Class Members include all current U.S. resident owners of AZEK decking who purchased the decking between Aug. 1, 2007 and Dec. 31, 2012 and who still own the property on which the deck is located.
Deadline to file a claim: 4/17/18
