Is it a conflict of interest to do deck inspections under the balcony bill laws in California without disclosing that the company you are being referred to make the repairs or do the destructive testing is owned by the same person?
Do your research before you contract with anyone for balcony inspections and make sure that there are no conflicts of interest with your inspector and if there are, to spell them out so you have full knowledge and the ability to make prudent business decisions.
Deck Inspector LLC in S California is owned by the same person who owns a WICR waterproofing and I am told that they are not disclosing that crucial fact to their clients. It’s a matter of ethics. Clicking the links below will show that both entities are owned by the same person and leave little doubt for consumers about the actual conflicts of interest.
Confidential sources tell us that Deck Inspector LLC is failing decks with even a small crack, demanding that they must make repairs immediately and WICR is charging fees that are exceedingly high. Unless a deck has structural issues that are life threatening, decks can be repaired on the property management company or HOA’s decision within a reasonable time.
Remember, investigate your inspection company and make sure they are independent with no conflicts of interest.

I would also warn consumers that if Mark Marsch Consulting is involved, he has close personal relationships with ownership of these companies and was found to be a biased expert by a Judge in San Bernardino Superior Court.
