La Belle Monique HOA Lawsuit/Trial Against WICR Waterproofing Postponed Pending Independent Lab Testing Deck Coating Samples

The scheduled trial coming up as a result of a lawsuit brought by La Belle Monique HOA in Santa Monica CA against WICR Waterproofing & Construction has been postponed until May 2022 while an independent laboratory tests samples of the deck coating system applied. I use the term deck coating system loosely as the specification in the WICR proposal says they will install UPI (United Polymers) epoxy primer, broadcast sand into the primer and then apply one coat of Permashield Acrylic Sealer over that. That in a nutshell is basically the specification for a new top coat over an existing system It is not a waterproofing system in my opinion.

So what will this independent expert examine and report on? First they’ll test the samples and see if the minimum mil thickness the manufacturer specifies has been applied. They’ll also test the material to see if the product is even United Polymers. The Association claims in it’s complaint that WICR failed to install the deck coating system properly, which allowed water to enter into areas that are to remain free of water intrusion, causing the Association apx $150,000+ to repair WICR’s alleged faulty work.

  1. We applied this method in Irina’s house ten years ago, and it fails
    The product was peeling two days after was apply
    We applied on retaining walls and deck
    At la Cañada the they tell us to keep cool and not to mention anything to the owner and new wife.
    My helper Mario and I we dint have any training in waterproof so we dint have any idea of what we were doing but they toll us to do it.
    I have plenty pictures that can show the process we used that day.
    At the end it was an experiment to see if sticks…
