A class action lawsuit has been filed against Azek Building Products Inc. alleging that Azek Deck Boards can show signs of staining, scratching, fading, discoloration, and mold and mildew deposits, despite marketing claims to the contrary by the manufacturer.
The national law firm Parker Waichman LLP filed the suit on April 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. CPG International Inc. and Azek Building Products Inc. have been named as defendants. The class action suit was filed on behalf of two men, one from Pinckneyville, Illinois, and one from Bel Air, Maryland. Both had purchased the Azek decking material, in 2011 and 2009, respectively, to be used as outdoor decks and docks.
