IKO and the Plaintiff (on behalf of the Class) have agreed to settle the Canadian class action relating to alleged defects in IKO Organic Shingles. As part of the settlement, IKO paid $7.5 million for the benefit of Class Members. The settlement represents a voluntary resolution of claims. IKO does not admit any wrongdoing or liability.
The settlement does NOT affect persons with IKO fiberglass shingles (some of which have been sold under the same brand names as IKO Organic Shingles).
The availability of Settlement Benefits are completely separate from the benefits available pursuant to the IKO Warranty Claims Process and are administered by an independent third party Claims Administrator.
Who can apply to receive Settlement Benefits?
