The Sherwin-Williams deck coating began to peel after a few weeks of application and was never waterproof. This is a clear violation of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which was passed in 1975 as a result of consumer dissatisfaction. Under the Magnuson-Moss Act, an entity is civilly liable for non-compliance with the warranty.
Class action lawsuit
The Superdeck class action lawsuit is underway after the company discovered that its protective coatings did not live up to its promises. After only weeks of application, the deck coating began peeling and was no longer waterproof. Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, companies must meet certain warranties or be subject to civil penalties. Plaintiffs may be eligible for a refund for repair work performed. Several lawsuits have been filed against another deck “restore” company.
The lawsuit claims that Sherwin-Williams failed to provide proper prep work instructions and materials for decks. The company offers to replace the product or reimburse the purchase price but has not offered any compensation for the cost of removing and repairing the damaged surface. The lawsuit seeks damages in the amount of a full refund. Plaintiffs should seek legal counsel before filing the claim. The lawsuit may be filed in a state court.
Breach of warranty
A recent class action lawsuit alleges that a Sherwin-Williams deck stain company violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and various state consumer protection laws. The plaintiff claims that the company was unaware of a faulty deck stain warranty. The company denied the warranty and is currently facing a lawsuit to rectify the situation. We take a closer look at this lawsuit to better understand the details of the class action.
First, the court found that the plaintiff failed to prove that the manufacturer’s warranty for the product was valid and enforceable. While the plaintiff argued that the warranty was void as far as it goes, the court found that the two claims were not separate and distinct. As such, the court dismissed count I without prejudice. The plaintiff’s remaining claims against the manufacturer were unsuccessful. A breach of the warranty in this context means that the plaintiff failed to receive the product she ordered.
The class action lawsuit against Sherwin-Williams Co. alleges that the protective coating on Superdeck and Duckback causes cracks and breaks within a matter of months. The suit alleges that the product’s design fails to provide adequate instructions for installation and preparation. It also alleges that consumers were unable to remove the coating due to problems with the product. It says that consumers should be aware of the risks associated with using the product.
While Superdeck may sound like a solid product with high oil content, the process is similar to woodworking projects for interior use. The more oil it has, the softer it becomes. Unfortunately, marine products need to flex to adapt to the constantly changing conditions. The more oil added to the product is the solution to the problem, but you should do your research before making a final decision. It is important to avoid promotional BS and look for the truth when evaluating a product.
Cost of repairs to decks
Superdeck repair can be expensive. While it’s possible to patch up minor damage yourself, more extensive repairs can run up to $15,000 or more. Some of these repairs are more difficult than others and require the replacement of entire decking boards. The cost of repairs varies depending on the size and complexity of the job. The average cost of a deck repair is between $20 and $250 per square foot. The type of repair required depends on the condition of the decking and how accessible the area is.
A deck repair can involve patching rotten wood or replacing warped or loose boards. It can also involve replacing corroded fasteners. Whether you’re fixing a small ding or an entire section of decking, the repair will require a skilled professional. Also, larger projects may require adding a concrete footing to support the entire structure. The cost of repairs to super decks varies according to the size of the problem, so keep this in mind when determining what kind of repair is needed.
Liability of Sherwin-Williams
The plaintiffs’ attorney argued that Sherwin-Williams is responsible for the lack of a warranty and misrepresented the company’s product. The defendants denied the allegations, arguing that they did not want to honor warranties or keep them hidden from customers. The plaintiffs also claim that at least 15 of the company’s wood deck stain products were defective.
The plaintiffs alleged that the protective coating products sold by Sherwin-Williams did not protect their decks from water damage and failed within a few weeks of application. Those who purchased the products were also eligible to file a class action lawsuit. To determine whether you qualify to file a lawsuit, consult an experienced consumer product attorney. The law firm’s attorneys have successfully recovered over $500 million for class members and clients.
