James Hardie products Titanboard and Harditex have been proven to fail in many leaky home claims . The High Court has granted permission for action to be taken against the company for houses that have used this product and it has failed opening the way for many claims to be brought against the company.
It was a widely used product when it was introduced and has since been taken off the market and replaced by James Hardie for similar types of fibre cement cladding board.
It remains to be seen just how much success owners will have in suing James Hardie who had a net sales return of 1.73billion dollars U.S. last year.
