Attorneys for Sherwin-Williams SuperDeck and Duckback Claims

Millions of people across the country have exterior decks that are composed of either wood or concrete. To preserve these materials, deck owners purchase and apply products such as paints or stains that prevent water damage, improve the look of the surfaces, and reduce wear and tear. Most paints and stains must be reapplied over time as the product fades away.

Several years ago, deck resurfacing products emerged in the marketplace. Although applied in similar methods to traditional paints and stains, these products were touted as being able to fill cracks or splinters in the deck’s surface. Considered an alternative to deck replacement, these premium products were offered directly by Sherwin-Williams.

The Sherwin-Williams brand was marketed under the names of SuperDeck and Duckback and it sold briskly to homeowners across the U.S.; however, the companies soon faced a wave of complaints from consumers who contended that these products began flaking, bubbling, and chipping away in the first year.

Currently, Rhine Law Firm, P.C., is working on a lawsuit against Sherwin-Williams. If you purchased these faulty deck resurfacing products, please call to speak to our Wilmington construction defect attorneys at (866) 772-9960. We are taking cases nationwide.

Product Liability and What It Means

North Carolina statute defines product liability as liability for injury, death, or property damage caused by a product. The damage may have resulted from failures in design, manufacturing, assembling, or other processing of the product by manufacturers or sellers. Sellers may include those functioning as a retailer, wholesaler, or other entity along the supply chain or channels of distribution. The company responsible for putting the defective product in the hands of consumers is legally liable, and there may be more than one.

What Are Class Action Claims?

The criteria for a class action claim are as follows:

  • The individuals filing the suit compose what is known as a "class" and they may choose to actively remain as a member of the class, be excluded, or pursue a claim with their own attorney. (For example, a “class” would be everyone who purchased Behr DeckOver.)
  • After a lawsuit is filed by one person in said class, the court will allow that plaintiff to essentially represent all persons in the class.
  • The damages incurred were typical among others in the class. (Most who bought the product had the same damages from using it.)
  • The recoverable damages do not warrant each member of the class pursing the matter individually.
