"Count me in the class action suit"
I purchased a Dura Loc roof in 2003 and the south and west sides of my roof are bare in many spots, revealing the brown primer against the green 3m granules. Like many of the other reviewers, I anticipated having a beautiful, worry-free roof for the remainder of my life-time and thus I justified the initial expense. A couple of weekends ago, I cleaned out my eaves trough and to my horror, there was about 2 inches of the 3M granules completely along the troughs. The sludge resembles wet sand at the beach and required me to remove with my hand as no amount of pressurized water would remove the residue. In my estimation, the granules seem to be in good condition, I believe the adhesive is the problem. I would very much appreciate being part of the class action suit as I can only imagine how awful my roof will look in a couple more years.

"Dura Loc is in bankruptcy"
A few months ago one of my former customers reported this same issue with their Dura Loc roof. I had the old contact info for dura loc I figured I would call and see if its still current before I passed it on to them. It was disconnected. I called Metals us and was informed that Dura Loc had filed for bankruptcy. I called the number to the law firm handling it, provided by Metals US and they confirmed it. I figured i would share this info because this was new news to me.

Failed in two years. Looks bad. The company will not fix . Told it failed because of no vents even though their ads said self venting. 5 roofs installed on this block. All failed. Product is not good -- Do not use.

"Just found out 50 year warranty is a scam"
I bought a home in 2009 and the owners showed me the paperwork for the 50 year warranty on the Duraloc roof. I recently noticed some discoloration and now may have a leak as well. The roof was put on in 2003 and I have contacted the roofing company that did the initial installation. After reading many reviews and other alarming complaints online I would like to be contacted if anyone is trying to gather enough people to initiate a lawsuit. I will update this initial post as I start to receive more information regarding the warrantly, if roof is leaking due to defective materials, etc.

"Metal Shake Shingle"
Our Dura-Loc metal roof was installed beautifully and per specifications. However, in just 8 years all of the granules have come off due to exposure to the sun. This is in Michigan, not that warm here. Dura-Loc will not honor their warranty on the product and we are out $19,000. Dura-Loc blames the installer which is a bold deception as there are 17 other Dura-Loc metal roof failures in northern Michigan. Don't purchase this product. You will be sorry as we are.

"DURA-LOC 's fix"
Mr. Reid inspected my roof 2 years ago. His solution was power wash roof, spray paint and reapply the blue / black granules. During the process the paint was the wrong color. So they repainted and reapplied the stone. That was 2 years ago. Guess what, they are beginning to come off again. I had to pay $400 for the power wash.

"replaced 3 times failed all 3"
Dura-Loc failed three times and now the owner will not replace it again. It the last time it was replaced the owner said that I owed him $1000.00 but would not give me a detailed invoice or tell me how I owed him money. His crew through out the material they brought to help in the replacement and did not return it for credit. They did not finish the job and I had to do the work. The roof failed faster then the other two replacements. The product is worse now then when it was first installed.

"Northern Exposure of Duraloc Shingles is Defective Also"
An update on my situation: Now the northern side of my roof is shedding the stones. I would like to receive emails from others, especially in the San Jose, ca area who are experiencing this problem with their Duraloc roof. I am about to contact many residence in my Evergreen area who have Duraloc roofs.
