Property owners whose CrossTimbers composite decking warped, twisted, shrunk or developed stains.
What Is CrossTimbers Decking?
CrossTimbers is a type of composite decking that's made from a mixture of wood and plastic, which are bonded together with various agents to form a material that is meant to be stronger than regular timber.
What's Going On?
It has been alleged that CrossTimbers decking is defective and allows water to intrude the decking material. As a result, the decking is allegedly susceptible to warping, twisting, buckling and staining, which may occur just months after installation. In some cases, the warping has allegedly caused the decking to detach from properties, posing a safety hazard and damaging the exteriors of these properties.
Who Makes CrossTimbers Decking?
CrossTimbers was originally manufactured by a company called Correct Building Products, but has since been rebranded and resold through the companies GAF Building Materials and Elk Corporation. While the line of composite decking has been resold and rebranded, this does not affect consumers' rights; those who experienced similar problems with their CrossTimbers decking may still be entitled to compensation.
