Why Don't We Get Sued? Because...

Why aren't we being sued? Because...from Krubinski vs Schmutzer-"truth is a complete defense against liability for defamation, regardless of bad faith or malicious purpose."

DeckTech's Day In "Court" Scheduled for June

A spokesperson from the Attorney General's office told us today that a hearing on the Accusation against Decktech Inc is scheduled to begin on June 15, 2016.

After submitting a defense to the accusation, the Attorney General scheduled the hearing for a three day period, the 15th, 16th and 17th, Wed-Friday. It is not known yet to us where the hearing will be held or whether it is open to the public.

Ron McKenna entering a legal services building late last year on a civil suit
over the same matter. McKenna's insurance company settled the matter
for an undisclosed sum and the case was closed. 

You can read what DeckTech is accused of her in ths public document on their license listing at www.cslb.ca.gov  DeckTech Inc and his other licensed company Hunter-James will both be subject to the same decision.

In two months Decktech will likely have their license suspended or revoked for the alleged violations listed in the accusation. In some cases a stay is granted to allow a contractor to finish current work but cannot contract for new projects. That is often a death blow as slowing work = slowing revenues. Many of the charges appear easy to prove, such as taking to large a deposit, owner provides a check he wrote, Decktech has hard time refuting that wasn't a deposit as it states in the contract, which is contained in the accusation. Easy...

So prospective customers are going to have to ask what happens if? If either, and DeckTech isn't open to warranty their work because they are suspended or revoked...well that might be a problem couldn't it? We suggest you think long and hard.

DeckTech Recycling Old Job's With Nevada Coatings Name Swapped Out

I can't explain what the heck Ronnie is doing over there behind his computer, but recycling an old job story from 3+ years ago is and dropping mention of Nevada Coating Systems is getting sort of desperate. Recently Decktech's blog had a story about Scott R in Cayucos who had a bad tile deck...well the revised story goes on to say that they installed a "preferred deck system" for Scott.

Here's a screen grab of the first version of the post from 2013. It can be found here at DeckTech's website http://www.decktech.org/Blog.aspx#~S8K8g1
Note the prominent mention of Nevda Coating Systems in the 2013 version
Same story revised just a bit but notably drops mention of Nevada Coating Systems.
I guess the divorce is in process. 

So now you have to make decisions, when Ron is changing up his stories from "Nevada Coating Systems" to "preferred deck system", you know he's having problems with Granite Deck customers complaining. There's no more mention on his new website about Granite Deck. Granite Deck is persona non grata with them and it's out the door and onto to the products Ron disparaged so much before. Ironic right? I know. Well I posted the list of clients with deck problems, look for it and see who you might know or if you are on it.

Don't let him off if your deck has problems. Preserve your rights with a complaint to the CSLB if you deem it necessary. Read my other post on whether you were defrauded. You decide...
