IF YOU OWN A HOME IN CALIFORNIA WITH MONIER ROOFING TILES, A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

  • California consumers have sued Monier Inc. (“Monier” or “Defendant”), claiming that Defendant failed to disclose to California home owners that the color and exterior surface of Monier brand slurry-coated roofing tiles (“Tiles”) would not remain on the tiles for the expressly warranted life of the product.
  • The Superior Court of Placer County, California has approved the lawsuit as a class action on behalf of all individuals and entities who own homes or other structures in the State of California with Tiles sold between January 1, 1978 and August 14, 1997 and were exposed to a statement implying that the roof tile would last 50 years, or would have a permanent color, or would be maintenance-free.
  • The Court has not decided whether Monier did anything wrong. There is no money available now, and no guarantee there will be. However, your rights are affected, and you have a choice to make now.
