Choose A Contractor

Saving BIG MONEY now, usually means spending more money in the future.

The quality of your sprinkler system depends largely on the contractor you choose to design and install it.  Not all contractors are created equal. At Evergreen Underground Sprinkling we believe our experience, expertise and execution will be the difference in a worry free sprinkler system.

Remember that once you invest in a system, you expect it will perform well and provide you with years of enjoyment with little or no maintenance.  It’s not like other products you can trade in if you’re not satisfied.  It becomes part of your property.  To make corrections in the future will always be very costly and can be avoided by selecting a reputable contractor now.

A professional contractor will:
  • Want to visit your site and hear what it is you want in a sprinkler system.
  • Review your turf and plant needs, sunny and shade areas, soil conditions, water sources available and water pressure requirements.
  • Present you with a detailed estimate and any project specifics.
  • Always respond to any questions about your project with clear informative answers.
  • Create little disruption to your existing plant material and the job will be safe and secure at the end of each installation day.
  • Typically install a residential sprinkler system in one to three days, depending on the size and scope of your project.
  • Keep you informed if there are delays do to weather extremes or unforeseen circumstances, your contractor should keep you informed of those as they arise.
When searching for a professional sprinkler contractor these are some things you should keep in mind:
  • Do they have a business address? (Check your local directory.)
  • Is the contractor insured?
  • Do they provide reasonable warranties and stand by their work?
  • How long have they been in business?  (A lot of contractor’s come and go within 5 years and offer warranties they can’t fulfill.)
  • Do they have special earned credentials?
  • Do they have references?
  • Can you get in touch with them is a problem arises?
  • Do they use contractor grade materials, example: water tight wire connectors?
  • Is all exposed pipe copper and not PVC?
  • Are you getting head to head coverage?
  • Is one of your contractor’s estimates well below others that you may have received?  If so, that may be a reflection on how they plan to reduce their costs on your sprinkler system. Beware!
