JELD-WEN Inc. and Masonite Corp. have agreed to a $19.5 million settlement to benefit indirect purchasers of interior molded doors.

Indirect purchasers include anyone who purchased the doors from a third-party resaler such as The Home Depot and did not purchase the door to resell it to another party.

The minimum payment for each Class Member who files a valid claim is estimated to be at least $25.

The interior molded doors class action lawsuit alleged that the defendants had worked to artificially inflate interior molded door prices.

This class action settlement is for any indirect purchasers who purchased a JELD-WEN or Masonite interior molded door between March 1, 2014, and Sept. 4, 2020, not for resale and while residing or having a business in one of the following states listed below:

  • Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The estimated minimum payment is based on a number of factors, and the actual amount of Class Members’ awards has yet to be determined.

Class Members may file one claim per household or entity.

Claims for more than three interior molded doors require proof of purchase. There are no purchase limits on products for which the Class Member provides proof of purchase.

Proof of purchase can include receipts, purchase orders, invoices, transaction records, or other documentation that indicates the product and quantity purchased, as well as the purchase date

Claims for three or fewer interior molded doors do not require supporting documentation, but it is recommended that Class Members keep any documentation they have in case additional information is needed.

The court has not sided with either party in the class action lawsuit, and while the defendants have agreed to a settlement, they deny any wrongdoing or liability.

Class Members are urged to update their contact information on the settlement website.

A fairness hearing is scheduled for July 13, 2021.

The deadline to object to or opt-out of the settlement is June 2, 2021.

Claim forms must be submitted online or postmarked by June 25, 2021.
