Does anyone know of any successful lawsuits against CorrectDeck due to the mold and mildew problem everyone is having. I think that the company is a disgrace and should be banned from existing in the composite industry. I'v had their product for 2 years now and I've had to use a cleaner they recommended, which is Armor All EZ Deck cleaner, every 6 weeks from the beginning of spring through the beginning of winter. This is not good for the material nor the environment. I'm going to contact a lawyer but before I did I wanted to get some feedback from other dissatisfied users of this inferior product. Don't even bother contacting them because they will never admit that the mildew is caused from their product. They love to just recommend cleaners and blame the environment for causing the mildew and mold. The owners should either refund everyone's money or spend some time in jail because they are committing grand larceny.

Has anyone determined if a class action lawsuit has been filed against CorrectDeck. They seem to have abandoned customers who bought the original product with all the problems. I for one bought it because it was advertised as low maintenance. They have obviously had considerable problems hence the introduction of the CX material to replace the problem product. Information on a classaction would be appreciated as I would certainly join it.

there was a successful lawsiut against Trex for the exact same mold problem in NJ. I have not been able to find the results though. I would like to pursue this.

From what I have read Trex settled a class action suite filed by the law offices of Marc B Kramer PC. Has anyone contacted an attourney and if they have has a class action suite been filed?

I would also be very interested in participating in a class-action lawsuit. The mold problem is very bad. When the CorrectDeck rep came to my house, they informed me that they knew that the mold was an issue and that because of that, they had a engineered a new product and the tag line was "we broke the 'mold' with this new product". This indicates to me that they knew they had a problem but never revealed it to potential customers. To those who claim that we should expect to clean the decks, I agree, however, the issue of mold is far beyond the issue of cleaning the normal dirt that will accumulate in an outdoor environment.

The bottomline is that CorectDeck knew this was an issue and did not disclose it to potential customers.

So, if anyone has any info re the mlwsuit, please let us know.

Thanks!

Same problem here, have a 3yr old 1,000 sqft 2-tiered deck that looks like hell. Not sure how it is for other colors, but the "natural cedar" look we went for is a disaster...dark spots all over the place. Went through two annual cleaning cycles (as manufacturer recommended) but it made virtually no difference. Ready to rip it all up myself but want to check out, and probably join in on, any ongoing litigation already underway.

Anyone hear of anything??

I don't seem to have the time or energy required to pursue a lawsuit or class action lawsuit. Maybe when I have to apply the armor all deck cleaner in a couple of weeks again which I will have to reapply in 6 week intervals throughout the summer it will motivate me to contact a lawyer to begin litigation. Only timer will tell. I wish someone else would get the ball rolling because it really is consumer fraud at it's best.

have you seen the website for lieff cabraser, heimann, & bernstein? they are looking for people who have had problems with correctdeck and ask for input. a member felt this was a solicitation, however, i believe there is no reason not to email them your experience. if enough persons do, maybe somnething will happen. it is better than what is happening now, which is nothing as far as i have heard to date. thanks for listening and good luck.

We are also interested in participating in a class action suit for the unacceptable mold problem.

Who is managing this process on behalf of the interested parties?
