At A Glance

This Alert Affects:
Anyone who recently purchased a home or is in the process of purchasing a home with Weyerhaeuser’s TJI joists coated with “Flak Jacket” protection.
What’s Going On?
Class action lawsuits are now being filed on behalf of these people. The suits claim the joists are off-gassing formaldehyde at levels that far exceed safety standards.
How Could a Class Action Help?
A class action could help homeowners get money for all costs associated with repairing, removing and/or replacing the joists – including costs the company is unwilling to cover in its “recall.” These include relocation expenses and medical monitoring.
