About the Lawsuits
Halunen & Associates and partner law firms represent a group of plaintiffs in class action lawsuits against several IKO businesses on behalf of consumers who have been affected by deteriorating, curling, or otherwise defective IKO shingles made by the companies. This case involves anyone who has previously owned, or currently owns, a home or other structure from 1987 through the present on which IKO Manufacturing shingles were installed. We are seeking recovery of material costs and labor costs for the tear-off, removal and re-application of shingles for each member of the class. The lawsuits have been consolidated into a single pre-trial proceeding in Urabana, Illinois, which is near IKO's U.S. headquarters.
Halunen & Associates has extensive experience in handling building materials-related class action litigation. We currently represent classes of homeowners from around the country in lawsuits seeking to recover costs associated with defective shingles, windows, and other products.

- Date of purchase/install of IKO Manufacturing Shingles
- Type of shingle/length of warranty
- Approx. date you observed curling/deterioration

The proposed class action against IKO does not foreclose your ability to file an individual case against IKO. At this time we have filed cases against IKO in the following states: Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Vermont. Although we do intend to file suits in other states and seek a national resolution, we cannot guarantee this will happen. Therefore, you must be aware that certain statutes of limitations apply in your state that limit the amount of time you have to bring a claim from the date you discover the defect. To preserve your rights you may want to contact an attorney in your area.
