Richmond Lawn Sprinker business was started by my father over 25 years ago. My father set a course for this business which was to exceed customer's expectations by installing an Irrigation System that was based on a standard of excellence from design to the cleanup.
My brother and I were raised doing this business and along the way we were instilled with a high work ethic. When my father retired, my brother and I refined his idea of an excellent installation to include a service department that would be totally customer orientated.
Questions you should ask a prospective sprinkler or lighting contractor:
• The contractor should be licensed by the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, as well as, having General Liability Insurance and Workman's Compensation policies. These items are there to protect the homeowner should any event happen during the installation.
• During the estimate, inquire how the contractor arrived at the proposed amount of zones. If the contractor did not take a water pressure and volume test or inspected the size of the water main and meter then he has no basis for his decision and is guessing at it.
• Did the contractor explain how an irrigation system or a low voltage landscape system is designed and installed?
• Did the contractor provide a portfolio containing literature describing the material he uses?
• Did he provide pictures of past projects that further clarify what he is installing?
• Did the contractor provide a list of referrals and encourage you to go and visit the locations to inquire about the standard of work he is doing?
Since most of my work is by word of mouth, I live on our over 25 year reputation of exceeding the homeowners expectations. I hope I clarified how a professional Irrigation and Lighting installer should present a proposal and explain the work they will be installing.
