We heard from a San Diego area HOA who told us of their problems with WICR.

WICR entered a contract with this HOA for 6 figures. The contract/bid was done by Fred Wanke last year before he had left.

The contract (which was signed nearly 9 months ago) with the Association did not apparently have a start date (read CSLB’s requirements for contracts here) or finish date. WICR has apparently failed to start the job.

The Association wanted out and told WICR that. Now WICR has sicced their lawyer, Irina Mazor onto them and is demanding “damages”.

We’ve advised the HOA to contact an aggressive and knowledgeable construction attorney to assist them and to file a complaint with CSLB about the tactics being employed. We also suggested that the State Bar Association might be interested if any ethical or legal issues from Mrs. Mazor’s work appear to be in violation of state law.

With David Mazor now at the helm and his dog (attorney) doing his bidding, Associations should be very wary of WICR. Insist on using YOUR contract, drawn up by YOUR attorney, don’t sign theirs. It is not going to protect you very well and is written to favor WICR.

In fact, we recommend that you just don’t put WICR on your bid list at all and save yourself a hassle. There’s much better contractors out there.

We’ve ridiculed the Granite Deck System from Nevada Coatings Inc for years. Their system was a cobbled together joke that rapidly failed and with only two applicators, didn’t gain any traction in the market.

Now, a year plus after Decktech Inc of Grover Beach dropped the product, the website for NevadaCoatings.com is gone from the web.

WICR, owned by David Mazor/Krubinski, was the second applicators and they’ve never ever featured a job using the crap on their own website.

If you are a consumer with Granite Deck or any other product from Nevada Coatings Inc and are experiencing failures or difficulty in getting warranty work done, we advise you file a complaint with the California Attorney Generals office for fraud. All claims by the manufacturer were made by the manufacturer and we assert they were false and misleading, without any backing of proof from independent entities.

Mazor CEO of wanke

Well the secret is no more, David Mazor (Krubinski) has taken over the reins at WICR.

We don’t know what happened to Fred, but we do know he is now  listed under “Personnel No Longer Associated With License”. Retired? Forced Out? Who knows, who really cares…

The important thing to know as a consumer is that Mazor/Krubinski has a long proven history of lying under oath and we’ve heard from many an HOA/attorneys/home owners who’ve had to deal with Mazor and were left with little satisfaction.   Problems, excuses, threats of suing…

Our recommendation-stay away from WICR and find another contractor. The history of Mazor is well known and with his wife/attorney running the legal end, they play hardball.

You know who this is directed to. 

Update, an email sent to wicr resulted in the photographs removal from their blog. 

I was browsing WICR Inc’s website/blog today and came upon a blog post about plywood vs OSB substrate. “Written” by Chris Swanson, he discusses why OSB isn’t a suitable substrate and why plywood is…well and good.

However, as I scrolled through to the end, I noticed a photograph that was very familiar to me since I took it on January 18th of 2008.

As seen at WICR’s website/blog, this is an image that I took in 2008.

Jeez, you’d think a company that’s been around as long as they have might have a few pictures of their own…but apparently not and stealing pics without giving attribution is low, but that’s what WICR is about, being snakes in the grass. The head snake is David Mazor aka David Krubinski, second snake in command is Sean Krubinski, the “protege/progeny” of Mazor. Tool in Chief is Fred Wanke, who does what he’s told and shuts the fuck up when he’s told too. Fred is trotted out as the figurehead of WICR when necessary.

Well, looked at another way, WICR must secretly admire our work, stealing is a form of flattery after all.

NCS pinholed at pool deck in Orcutt

Two lying peas in a pod were caught again lying to save their friends ass, only it didn’t work. The Contractors State License Board has rejected a Administrative Law Judge’s decision in CSLB/CA Attorney General vs DeckTech Inc.

The case in question can be found at CSLB’s License Portal where you can read the Accusation against DeckTech along with the Decision and Notice of Non-Adoption.

In the case of CSLB Vs DeckTech, who is a Nevada Coatings applicator, Nevada Coatings being owned by Mazor, Decktech has been accused of abandoning a job, taking to much money on a deposit, failing to provide lien releases and several other violations of the Business & Professions Code.

The case finally had hearings last year and a decision was posted this week at the CSLB website. The decision contains testimony from Mark Marsch who was a public WICR owner before going underground.

Marsch is found lying in testimony he gave regarding tile work. Read it below in the screen shot

Mark Marsch testimony DT tile job

Mark Marsch lies his ass off by testifying “in his opinion” the grout joints “met industry standards”. No Mark, they don’t. And the grout joints were one of the first things the Smith’s complained to me about. I’m not a tile expert, but I can see with my own eyes and so can everyone else.

Then Davis Mazor got on the witness stand and swore to tell the truth ( I know, right, stop laughing…)

Mazor is the mind behind Nevada Coatings System, a polyurea product that to my knowledge, no one has ever seen a can of in their life. Photo’s I have from various jobs DeckTeck has done have all shown Carboline Reactamine ET on the labels or a red can covered over with a Decktech label.

Mazor then went on to opine-

mazor DT testimony carboline NCS

The reason Mazor says Carboline would be an acceptable substitute is because NCS is Carboline. There aren’t any products labeled NCS I’ve ever seen. Carboline does not have any spec for applying their products to plywood substrates.

Mazor testimony DT 2

Carboline would beg to differ. No membrane “absorbs” into the wood substrate as the wood substrate is primed first with epoxy. See DeckTech pic below. As of 3/13/17, the NCS spec for NCS6000 UVS says it is applied at 45 mils to 125 mils. This is written information that contradicts Mazor’s testimony. Again, IMO he’s a liar here.

Carboline Rep Says “Based on what I can tell… (Reactamine ET on decks) not the right application for these products”

I spoke with Paul at Carboline Technical Service (314-219-1707) who tells me that based on the pics I have of their Carboline’s Reactamine ET being put on plywood decks by DeckTech that  it’s not an approved application by them.

He also said they would not approve it if asked to. What bothered him is that if Nevada Coatings System is the “private label” that is supposed to be what’s being put down, it should be in a can marked as such as it is deceiving the client of they think it’s Carboline “approving” the application over plywood.

Call Carboline up at the number above and ask Paul yourself.

Seems with this information, if you saw this bucket as shown below on your job, but were told on our contract Nevada Coatings, you may ask yourself, have I been a victim of a bait and switch? And after you talk to Paul at Carboline, you might want to talk to CSLB? An attorney? DeckTech’s Bonding Company? General Liability insurance carrier? All of the above? You decide.

Screen shot taken from DeckTech’s website when they promoted Granite Deck. Here they discuss primer on the deck first then the membrane. So any absorption of product into the substrate would be the primer, not the membrane.

I’ve reported on this site several cases where Mazor (Krubinski) has been caught lying.  He was found by a Judge to be “less than credible”. Well I am going to make sure CSLB knows of your unsavory history in lying under oath.

Here at a DeckTech job we see familiar looking red buckets with a “DeckTech” label over the mfg’s label. I’m not saying these are Carboline buckets, I’m saying the red color looks familiar. 

I tried sending a message to Dave’s email but got an error msg, but this is what I tried to send-

3 scum bags

Telling Dave he’s a liar to his face will be very satisfying when I get that chance.
