I purchased a pallet load of BP shingles from Totem Bldg Supplies in April stored them flat in my garage until about a month ago. When we started using them, we found in sealed packages we were getting ripped shingles from the tab toward the other tab. We are about 1/3 done the roof and I have at least a full square of defective shingles. I e-mailed BP Quality Assurance with the problem-no reply. Anybody else with simular expieriences?
I agree, you should be able to get the full life expectancy but they seem to steeply pro rate them. Good Luck and hope you get some legal action going.
I had some bad shingles(installed myself and we filed a complaint. They sent us a box(prepaid )to send shingles back for testing. After we had given up about 5 months we did get a rebate, but they will not pay for installation. I personally don't know of any class action suits but good luck.
At christmas we rec'd a response-they wanted to know if we had replaced the shingles, seriously. For ahile it looked like our warranty was in jeopardy but eventually we did get paid for the replacement shingles. Good dealm except that means the ones on the roof will probably pack it in early. Oh well another day in paradise.
