Masonite siding has been the subject of a class action law suit against the manufacturer. A class action settlement has been reached. The Settlement provides a seven (7) year/ten (10) year claims program. If
you own Masonite Hardboard Siding installed and incorporated into a home or
other structure between January 1, 1980, and December 31, 1989, you must
file your claim(s) under the Seven Year Program by January 15, 2005. If you
own Masonite Hardboard Siding installed and incorporated into a home or
other structure between January 1, 1990 and January 15, 1998, you have ten
years, until January 15, 2008 within which to file your claim(s). Once the
Settlement expires, the remainder of Masonite's warranty, if any will remain
in effect, and you may be entitled to receive compensation for siding that
fails under the terms of Masonite's warranty program separate and apart from
this Settlement. Current information is available by calling the Independent Claims Administrator at 1-800-330-2722, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Time. This information is available on the Internet at: http://www.masoniteclaims.com.
