We Are looking to Interview California HOA’s Who Contracted With the Company formerly Known As Wanke, Industrial, Commercial, Residential Inc

Are you an HOA or manager of an HOA who ever contracted with the company formerly known as Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential Inc?

Did you ever have an  independent consultant by the name of David Krubinski  or Mark Marsch tell you that the work was done when you raised concerns?  Did you ever feel bullied by their attorney?

Did you get a “Ten Year Warranty” from Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential Inc for Mer-Kote or Nevada Coating Systems that requires you to only contract with them for the maintenance else your warranty is “void”?

Are you paying a lot of money every 3 years for maintenance in order to keep your “warranty”?

Ever get an icky feeling about the whole thing? Think something was amiss?

We want to talk with you! We are searching for HOAs and managers willing to turn over paperwork-contracts, emails, letters etc and hear your story.

Wanke, Industrial, Commercial, Residential, Inc. Is No Longer a Listed Applicator for Mer-Kote!

Did Hell freeze over? I missed it I guess…

during a website update at DeckExpert.com, I was posting the Mer-Kote approved applicators list to the deck coating installers page…and I noticed that it had been revamped into a easier to read list…and then I was reading the list of applicators…and then I noticed that Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential  wasn’t listed.

I inquired with a source at Mer-Ko who confirmed that Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential Inc is not a listed applicator anymore.

Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential was the grandaddy installer of Mer-Kote; in the days when one certain sales manager for Mer-Kote ran things, Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential was THE Mer-Kote applicator, a force to be reckoned with…allegedly due to his hidden ownership of the company.

However, The former salesperson of Mer-Kote was fired after Parex bought them as he refused to sign his employment contract, and things changed for the better at Mer-Kote with new management and a new way of doing business…less good ole boy style and more like an open and free market.

So how does that effect you Mr. Homeowner or Homeowner Association? Well that’s better left to be said by Mer-Kote, but my opinion is that any warranty written by Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential, if it meets Mer-Kotes standards and was registered with mer-Kote, is that your ok. You’ll need to have your decks maintained by a listed applicator. Wanke Indutrial Commercial Residential  cannot back any factory warranty up so far as I know…

If your warranty is written and backed by Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential, you’re at their mercy…check with Mer-Kote and see what might be done…bring or send a copy of your warranty to them.

Listed applicators for Mer-Kote can be found at Mer-Kote’s website.

Former Mer-Kote Employee Busy in Court

Former Mer-Kote salesperson, now owner of the company known under it’s previous name of Wanke, Industrial, Commercial Residential Inc under Fred Wanke,  has been busy in court lately, judging from our review of cases in the So Cal court system.

A suit filed against former employer Mer-Ko Parex/LaHabra resulted in some type of settlement from what we can tell from the information at the court website,

and in Riverside County, an ongoing suit under the Negligence category has Mr. Krubinski listed as a plaintiff and a defendant, along with long time Mer-Ko applictator Wanke Industrial Commercial Residential, Inc listed as the same thing, plaintiff and defendant.

Looks like there will be some interesting twists and turns on this case…

see below for the public information I was able to find on court web sites.
