A few years ago we re-did a roof. We went with GAF timberline shinges which carry their weather stopper product warranty.
GAF sent an inspector to each warrantied job to inspect the installation, venting, etc. A guy from the US came by to check the job, he was on the road throughout the west.
The roofer offered their own written warranty for the installation work. Only roofer I've known who has their own show room and keeps their guys on the payroll at some level all year, even when business is slow.

There was a lawsuit related to IKO shingles due to their failure. I shingled my parents house and a year later on a windy day they lost 30 or so shingles...and not due to a poor instillation.

It wasn't an installation failure, it was a shingle failure.
Oh absolutely. I think every manufacturer of shingles has had/does have a lawsuit against them. It is nothing out of the ordinary.
