DeckTech's Lawyers Tacitly Admit That DeckTech Lies By Filing Lawsuits Against Subcontractors

False Advertising?  From Decktech's website - "DeckTech, Inc. would become a full service “one stop shop”. Ron’s clients could depend on him and his crew to provide a sound long term solution to their existing leaky deck or leaky stair project. From start to finish Ron and his team would complete projects without any outside contractors so they could ensure every step and detail would be done properly."

Is Decktech Inc a "one stop shop" or are they just big fat liars? In the current lawsuit against Decktech Inc by a client in Morro Bay, part of the claim made in the suit was that oral statements made by Ron McKenna, on their website and made in the contract fraudulently induced him to contract with Decktech, based on promises that they are a one stop shop and that no subs are used. . 

Last week, on March 5th DeckTech Inc's lawyers exposed Decktech's lies by filing suit in San Luis Obispo Superior Court against two sub-contractors-B&B Construction Cleanup & Quality Tile, located on Traffic Way in Arroyo Grande. What B&B Construction Cleanup did to warrant being named is unknown, as from our understanding from the client of DeckTech's, they demo'd the existing deck and tile before Decktech took over. 

We can certainly understand why Quality Tile was sued-their work we saw was atrocious- 
DeckTech's subcontractor Quality Tile is alleged to have performed sub-standard work in a lawsuit filing in Superior Court
A key slides right in under the tile at the edge, indicating that there is no thinset on the edge to bond
tile to the waterproofing. 
Expensive saltillo tiles will need to be removed after the sub contractor, Quality Tile, allegedly installed them wrong.
Poorly set tile, poor layout and improper slope on the deck is
alleged by the plaintiff in a lawsuit against DeckTech.

Saltillo tile is supposed to be sealed first, then installed. Staining on the edges from grout that can't be rinsed off leaves an undesirable effect.
A security camera clearly shows a worker using a sponge, in spite
of mfg instructions to use a grout bag.

DeckTech appears to be searching for a scapegoat to lay blame on, instead of "taking ownership of every project" Their statement  "We personally want to ensure that you get what you are paying for and are happy with the results of our work. Our commitment to getting the details right helps us exceed our customers' expectations and keeps our customers coming back for life." appears to be just more bullshit. The plaintiff had asked DeckTech to fix their work, but was instead told that DeckTech was moving on...leaving the plaintiff with a very deficient deck. 

It appears that you can't trust Ron McKenna and DeckTech to do what they said they would do, despite the fancy website and promises, it appears DeckTech is just another deceitful company out to steal your money. An inquiry to DeckTech via email asking questions and for a statement was not responded to by DeckTech.
