Gentek Siding Complaint: Allegations
The Gentek class action suit makes a number of allegations against the company, which manufactures the exterior aluminum and steel siding in question. These allegations against Gentek include the following:
- The siding is inherently defective
- The siding peels, chips and cracks within the original warranty period
- Gentek is liable for the repair, replacement or refinishing of the siding
Although their product warranties hold them responsible for manufacturing defects, Gentek allegedly do not fully uphold the terms of these contracts. According to the Gentek class action, when a consumer makes a claim for peeling paint, the company either offers to repaint the siding or provides a small monetary sum, which is less than what the company is responsible for under its contracts. Furthermore, the Gentek class action claims, repainting the siding will not fully resolve the consumer's Gentek siding complaints because it will not cause the siding to conform to the contract. Specifically, this will not fix the issue of peeling Gentek siding because paint which is applied after installation will not satisfactorily adhere to the siding and repainting the affected siding does not resolve the issue in regard to the rest of siding, which may need repainting in the future.
