TimberSIL Lawsuit Investigation Based on Premature Rotting

Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating claims that TimberSIL wood, used extensively in New Orleans home reconstruction following Hurricane Katrina, is now beginning to show signs of extensive, premature rotting.  A traditional wood alternative, TimberSIL is a wood composite fortified with glass.  The material was marketed as being especially friendly to the environment as it omits chemicals that might otherwise slow the rate of decay.

Now, in addition to problems being reported in New Orleans, property owners in several states are complaining of significant property damage resulting from premature rotting apparent in TimberSIL.  The complaints have followed a 2009 study undertaken by the Oregon State University’s Department of Wood Science Engineering that had determined TimberSIL wood to be “only sightly resistant to decay,” and thus unsuitable for exterior exposure.

If you have used TimberSIL in your home, rental, or commercial structure, and have seen premature rotting, you are urged to contact Audet & Partners, LLP for a free, confidential case evaluation.  We can determine whether you may have a viable claim for damages in a TiberSIL lawsuit.  You can contact us either by calling (800) 965-1461, or by completing and submitting the inquiry form on the right side of this page.
