Potentially Defective Tremco Roofing Products

Tremco is one of the country’s leading manufacturers of roofing and sealant materials, and the company also offers weatherproofing and roofing services, such as roofing restoration and repair. Having adequate roofing and weatherproofing is important for businesses and homeowners because it protects employees and family members from the elements and sometimes even illness or disease. Unfortunately, when companies try to take advantage of consumers and knowingly sell and distribute defective materials, the consequences can be devastating for victims. The following are some Tremco roofing and sealant products that may be defective:

 

  • TREMproof
  • Trempro
  • TremLock
  • TremSEAL
  • Decktite
  • Spectrem
  • Dymonic

Tremco Agrees to $61 Million Settlement

Allegations of fraud against RPM and its Tremco subsidiary were spurred by a whistleblower lawsuit, launched after the former vice president of Tremco, Greg Rudolph, resigned and went public with his allegations of fraud. In August 2013, the roofing company resolved the complaint with the federal government by agreeing to a $60.9 million settlement for damages and civil penalties arising from Tremco’s fradulent statements, records and claims that affected government entities with roofing contracts. According to allegations raised in the whistleblower lawsuit, Tremco is accused of the following:

 

  • Failing to provide the government with the same discounts it provided to non-federal government customers
  • Selling costly roofing materials to the government without noting that generic versions of the same materials were available at lower prices
  • Falsely claiming that its roofs had high ratings for fire protection
  • Knowing since 2005 that its Burmastic roofing systems were highly likely to fail
  • Failing to reveal to the government that there were defects in the roofs it installed
  • Knowing that its “cold roofs” were defective, or would become so, once exposed to the freeze and thaw cycles of winter
  • Knowing that its Burmastic 200, 400 and 500 roofing systems contained defective products
