What are recalled shingles? Well, for a period of time through the 1990s and early 2000s, many homeowners purchased organic shingles made with a base of formerly living material (such as waste paper, cellulose, wood fiber) saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof, then topped with a coating of adhesive asphalt and ceramic granules. These popular shingles - which were promised to last the average 15 to 20 years of a normal asphalt roof - started curling and pulling away from the substrate in a matter of a couple of years. The manufacturer recalled the shingles and a class-action lawsuit set aside some money for homeowners to claim in order to replace their roofs.
