Factors to Consider When Installing a Sprinkler System
When considering a sprinkler installation for your residential or commercial property, there are a lot of considerations. A few major factors are the reputation and experience level of the irrigation company, business credentials, maintenance contracts, the process of the irrigation company, and of course cost. Fortunately, with over 14 years of experience and a team of qualified technicians, we can walk you through some critical factors to look for when considering a sprinkler installation Wilmington NC as well as surrounding areas such as Leland, Carolina Beach, Hampstead, Jacksonville, Burgaw and other parts of Southeastern North Carolina.
While making a decision as important as a sprinkler installation Wilmington NC, finding a company with a long reputation of quality work and customer service is important. A couple key sources to research would be Google Reviews, Angie’s List, and Home Advisor among others. Examine the reviews closely; what did previous customers say about their experience with that company and would they recommend that company to others?
When deciding on ANY service company, what is usually the most important characteristic? Typically it’s experience because that person (or company) has seen and done it all! Finding a company to install your sprinkler system is no different. Look for a company that has a long track record of success when it comes to installing sprinkler systems in your area.
Just as you look for the doctor with all the degrees after their name, you want to do the same in the irrigation industry. Find a company in your area with a Certified Irrigation Designer or Certified Irrigation Contractor through the Irrigation Association. These individuals have gone through the top-level education, training, and testing that allows them to be some irrigation minds in their field.
After making a significant investment into your sprinkler installation Wilmington NC, it would make sense to have it maintained by the same company, right? After all, the company who installed the system will have the most know-how and be able to provide the best service. Typical maintenance during the year are Winterizing your system heading into Winter, Spring Turn-on to get it ready for Spring, and then additional maintenance heading into Summer and Fall to make sure your controller is programmed correctly and the system is functioning properly.
Irrigation Installation Process
What separates good companies from GREAT companies is the process of how they install your irrigation system. After all, a company that has been installing systems for years will have it down to a science. The best companies would typically offer a site visit, followed by a PDF Design with their contract. The design would show how the system will be laid out, where zones would start and end, and factor in terrain and natural barriers.
A well-manufactured irrigation system with a state-of-the-art controller could be anywhere from $2,000-$10,000+ range depending on the size of your property and materials. The only way to truly know is to have a technician (specifically a Certified Irrigation Contractor or Certified Irrigation Designer like we discussed in a previous section) come out to your property and evaluate.
