Tremco Roofing Systems
Audet and Partners, LLP is investigating potential claims against Tremco, Inc. for false advertising and the sale of defective roofing systems. A former Tremco employee testified that Tremco, Inc. failed to disclose the true quality of roofing systems to various governmental entities and the company sold defective roofing products, materials and systems to these entities both directly and through various roofing contractors.
This testimony eventually led to a settlement in which Tremco agreed to pay more than $60 million to the federal government per the lawsuit brought by the U.S. Department of Justice. Actions brought by several state and local entities remain unresolved.
Based on existing information, Audet and Partners, LLP has reasons to believe that similar false representations may have been made by Tremco to private consumers in connection with the sale of its roofing products and systems dating back several years. In addition, we believe that Tremco may have sold defective roofing systems to private consumers.
We are currently investigating the following Tremco products for potential misrepresentations made in connection with their sale and marketing to consumers:
