If you purchased Gentek siding anytime after 1986 you could be part of the Gentek Defective Siding Class Action Lawsuit. The case is entitled Robert A. Patrick v. Gentek Building Products, Inc., and Associated Materials, Inc. and is in the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, Eastern Division. This lawsuit revolves around claims that Gentek’s siding is prone to warps, cracks, buckles, flakes, peels, splits, discolors and deteriorates and that Gentek refuses to honor their lifetime warranty associated with the product. The lawsuit also states the siding allows moisture to penetrate the building which causes problems and can lead to costly damage repairs. The lawsuit is seeking damages for breach of warranty and violations of the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act. More information about the Gentek Defective Siding Lawsuit can be found here.
