Did Manufacturers Collude to Fix the Price of Cedar Shakes and Shingles?

 

If you purchased cedar shakes and shingles for a home improvement project in the past four years, you likely paid more than you should have.

Keller Rohrback is investigating allegations that the major manufacturers in the industry, working through their trade association, the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau (CSSB), artificially inflated prices for cedar shakes and shingles from February 27, 2015 to the present. Because competition was stifled by manufacturers who came together within the association, anyone who bought these materials will have paid more than they would have if there had been a competitive market. CSSB is the only trade association serving the shake and shingle industry in the United States and Canada.

Cedar shakes and shingles are materials used for both roofing and siding . Cedar shakes offer a rustic look for roofing projects while cedar shingles offer a consistent and even thickness when used for both sidewalls and roofing. When sold these products bear the Certi-Label of the CSSB. Certi-Labeled shakes and shingles account for an estimated 95 percent of the high-end cedar shake and shingles utilized in the United States.

The CSSB’s board is comprised of several of the largest manufacturers of cedar shakes and shingles, including Anbrook Industries Ltd. and Waldun Forest Products Ltd. It’s alleged that some members of the CSSB colluded to fix prices on cedar shakes and shingles.

If you purchased cedar products with the Certi-Label (which includes the Certi-Grade, Certi-Sawn, Certi-Split, and Certi-Ridge labels) made by any manufacturer, not just those specifically identified above, Keller Rohrback would like to talk to you about your potential legal claims.
