$8.25M Preliminary Settlement Approved in Trex Defective Decking Class Action Lawsuit

This is a settlement for the Trex lawsuit.

- by

Seattle, WA: Preliminary court approval of an $8.25 million settlement has been granted in the class action pending against Trex Co. The lawsuit alleged that the nation' largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking sold defective products.

Consumers filed a consolidated complaint on December 3, 2010, after many claimed that Trex's first-generation, non-shelled wood-plastic composite decking, railing, and fencing products were defective and prone to mold spotting and color variation. Consumers allege that Trex failed to compensate them for the defective product in violation of warranty and consumer protection laws.

The certified, nationwide class-action suit includes anyone in the US or its territories who own Trex decking, railing, or fencing built with Trex non-shelled products purchased between August 1, 2004 and August 27, 2013.

The Court has set a hearing for final approval on Dec. 13, 2013. More information about the proposed settlement is available at http://www.hbsslaw.com/cases-and-investigations/cases/trex.
