There are a few simple rules to apply when selecting a contractor! It might sound almost obvious, but first thing I do is look at a contractor’s business card. If “ Joe’s plumbing” doesn’t have a physical address on the card, it’s already a clue. Phone numbers and e-mail addresses can be changed easily.
Wouldn’t you like to know the contractor’s office address, or home address? It shows signs of stability.
How long has the contractor been in business? The fact is that 95% of businesses fold the first seven years.
Does the contractor have liability and WCB coverage? Remember you can be sued if your contractor has no coverage!
Unless a contractor needs to customize products why do they need a large deposit? I think it’s extremely unwise to pay a significant deposit up front. I sometimes have a small booking fee of a few hundred dollars on large jobs, simply in case we book a larger product and for some reason the customer changes his mind, I lose potential customers because I couldn’t do soon enough.
Irrigation contractor vs. landscapers.
When it comes to installing your sprinkler system sometimes landscaper think they can do it themselves, however reality is that a landscaper might install one or two systems a year whereas an irrigation company installs two or three systems a week. (Quality Sprinkler Inc. installs on average 40-50 systems a year)
At Quality Sprinkler Inc. our passion is sprinkler systems, we’ve been doing it close to 30 years! We are not shy to buy better quality sprinkler products, and pay a little extra, so why wouldn’t you spend a little extra to get it done right
