In August 2013, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio approved a settlement between Gentek Building Products, Inc. and a class consisting of "All persons, organizations, municipalities, corporations and entities that own property, whether commercial or residential, on which Gentek Steel Siding was applied during the period January 1, 1991 through the Notice Date,1 that is covered by a Gentek Steel Siding warranty and which siding experienced Steel Peel. "

The settlement provides for enhanced warranty benefits to class members who submit warranty claims due to peeling paint on steel siding manufactured by Gentek or its affilliated companies.  Brands may include Gentek, Revere, or Alside.

A copy of the relevant settlement documents are available by clicking the links to the left.

In October, 2016, we, as Lead Counsel for the Class, filed a Motion to Enforce the Settlement Agreement, alleging that Gentek was not in compliance with that agreement.   A telephonic hearing on that Motion is scheduled for January 9, 2017.
