Multiple lawsuits have been filed against Allura USA and its corporate affiliates (collectively “Allura”) in Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina, alleging that its fiber cement siding is defective.

Allura advertises on its website that its fiber cement products have a 50-year limited warranty and will not “rot, warp, fade, burn or disappoint.” Allura’s website further represents that its fiber cement products are “made with an advanced formula that resist damage from moisture, rot, hail and termite attacks,” and are “suitable in even the most extreme hot and cold climates and are non-combustible.”

The lawsuits allege that some homeowners found themselves needing to replace Allura’s fiber cement siding within 5 years, as premature deterioration caused the siding to crack, split and/or break, resulting in moisture intrusion and water damage. According to the lawsuits, Allura allegedly uses large amounts of fly ash in the manufacturing process, causing the fiber cement products to become brittle and porous.
