Gerard Granite Ridge Lawsuit Filed in Texas

Willow Greene Homeowners Association (HOA) filed a lawsuit against Gerard Roofing Technologies in February 2013, claiming the Granite Ridge Roofing System is defective and leaky.

The HOA installed the roof on its 25-building, 172-unit complex in 2005. Soon afterward, a number of leaks occurred throughout the complex.

After chasing leaks, they determined that the roofing material itself was leaking. When Willow Greene bought the $1 million roof, it included a lifetime warranty — but when they submitted warranty claims, it took Gerard seven months to send out a representative, who denied the claim.

Allegations raised in the lawsuit include:

  • The Granite Ridge roofing system leaks, even when installed correctly in accordance with the manual provided by Gerard
  • Willow Greene has “useless roofs that are leaking” and have caused “significant damage” to both the interior and exterior
  • These problems were caused by defective design of the Granite Ridge roofing system
  • The Granite Ridge roofing system was defective when sold and failed to perform as promised and intended.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, we are not filing a class action lawsuit against Gerard Roofing Technologies.

Lawsuits have already been filed, but they are not part of a class action. Instead, they are individual lawsuits filed by people who have hired an attorney. If you decide to file a lawsuit, our attorneys may be able to help you recover compensation for:

  • Interior and/or exterior property damage
  • Mold issues and water damage
  • Cost of inspection or relocating temporarily
  • Removing and replacing your roof
  • And more

About Class Actions

Class actions have advantages when a lot of people have essentially the same legal claim, but the reimbursement each individual seeks is less than the cost of filing a lawsuit — for example, consumers seeking a refund for the purchase of a defective product.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Unfortunately, members of class actions sometimes must accept high attorneys’ fees, pennies on the dollar for their claim, and watch the rest divided among everyone else in the class action.

Our attorneys understand that many of our clients are suffering devastating financial losses due to property damage. We file individual lawsuits so we can focus on maximizing the financial recovery for each of our clients. Contact us today to learn more.
