LP Trimboard Class Action Settlement – Charleston County Only

In 2008, Justin Lucey, and Paul Dominick of the Nexsen Pruet law firm, reached a class
action settlement with Louisiana Pacific for compensation to home owners and others for damaged
Trimboard on their structures. Trimboard is a manufactured or composite wood trim product,
sometimes referred to as medium density fiberboard, which is used as trim on the exterior of
structures. It comes in different widths, and is often used as trim around windows and doors, at
corners of structures as corner board, as or over the band board at the base of the first floor,
as fascia or soffit near the roof line, and/or as decorative trim on columns, rail posts, and
along porches or stair stringers.

Plaintiff alleged that the Trimboard was unsuitable for exterior use, and that it often
failed prematurely due to water absorption, resulting in swelling or decay. If you have Trimboard on
your structure, the below information will be of use to you. As detailed in the available information
below, the settlement provides for compensation of $17 per foot for partial replacement of damaged
Trimboard; or $14 per foot for complete replacement of damaged Trimboard, less attorney fees of one
third. However, this is subject to the more specific details in the below linked documents. And this
settlement is still subject to final court approval.
