Firefree Plus Roofing By Re-con Building Products

Postby Chazaya » Sun Oct 26, 2014 5:18 pm

Bruce,

We had a new roof installed in 2000, with Firefree Plus materials by Re-Con Building Products. Despite a 50 warranty, our roof is covered with broken tiles and damage after 12 years. In doing a bit of research, it looks like the company, the product, and the roofing company are now gone. There was an $18.6 million settlement on October 16, 2007 for Firefree Tiles. How and with whom do we file a claim? Thank you so much for any help/information you can provide to us.

Dave,

I am not familiar with this product, however I have had experiences with numerous similar types of products that just don't perform as they should.  After doing a bit of research with the state of California, and checking into classaction.org, it seems that there are no pending cases.  This is not to say that you cant start one...but it is probably not worth the time as these cases often get settled for pennies on the dollar and the lawyers take a bunch of it first, leaving the "victims"...well more victimized I think.  The products type actions that don't result in death or maiming often are not worth the effort.

This is not to say that there is not as case out there right now, but the only evidence of a case was for shingles installed prior to 1998, so apparently you are out of that, and likely this one settled long ago and now has expired.

When you replace your roof, I strongly urge you to stick to products manufactured by long standing and recognizable names, and retain the expertise and knowledge of a local roof consultant for material selection and design guidance.

Sorry for your troubles,
