A professionally installed automatic sprinkler system is the smart way to beautify your landscape, and one that will make your life easier. To make the most of your investment you will want to make sure it is designed and installed properly, with the diverse needs of your landscape in mind.
Choosing the right contractor is an important decision. The contractor will design and install your automatic sprinkler system, and will ensure the right components are used for each part of your landscape.
An efficient, well-organized contractor will be happy to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
What types of products will be used and why?
The contractor should be able to explain each of the components and why they are the best for your landscape.
Is after-sale service provided?
A professional contractor should be willing and able to provide after-sale service. Examples of after-sale service include spring start-up and winterization.
Is there a warranty?
All of the work performed should be guaranteed. Warranty times may vary for system components and labor. A one-year warranty is typical.
Are customer references available?
Be sure to ask for the names and telephone numbers of recent customers you can call. A satisfied customer is the best way to gauge the experience you will have.
When choosing a contractor, you should be wary of those who offer to charge you significantly less than others. Low bidders may not be licensed or insured and may often use cost-cutting techniques that can jeopardize your lawn and shorten the life of your system.
Above all, you should choose a contractor you feel you can trust, a contractor who installs professional series products, such as Rain Bird components, the world’s leading manufacturer of irrigation equipment.
For more than seven decades, professional irrigation contractors have used Rain Bird products to provide the industry’s most water-efficient, durable and diverse irrigation components, so homeowners like you can have a beautiful lawn and the time to enjoy it.
