Owens Corning shingles that were defective when they were installed on my house.

Question Details: My house is 13 years old and I am the original owner. I was told by a roofing contractor that the shingles were defective. (Oakridge II Shingles) I filed a complaint with Owens Corning and the sent me a check for $2000.00, claiming that 51% of my warranty was used up. The money was for replacement of 46 squares of shingles. I have gotten estimates for as much as $15000.00 to install a new roof. Is there any way Owens Corning could be held responsible for more of the replacement cost? Have there been any class action suits against them for defective Oakridge II Shingles?
