They did their work, and they were fine. That's how their business is supposed to be run. They did sprinklers and lighting. I believe it was a recommendation that made me choose them, and I think they're A+.
What I like about my experience with American National Sprinkler as a company is that they do their work. They turn our sprinkler system on and off each year. I'd give them an A based on the quality of work they provided.
Their technicians are efficient. They let me know of any problems that I had, and they fixed it quickly. I think this time they just closed down the sprinkler system. I initially started using them in 1997. They installed the sprinkler system. I chose American National Sprinkler over a different company because the neighbors had it, and they seemed to have a good opinion of the business. It's an A grade from us.
I like that when you have trouble, they schedule pretty quickly. Their staff is friendly and lets you know what's going on. They did sprinklers. The reason I chose them over a different company is that they were the ones who put the system in the house way back. They get an A.
The representative I worked with was very professional and thorough. The installers did a great job on it, and any issues that cropped up—there were a couple of minor ones—were taken care of right away. Overall, I'd say they did a very good job. They did both our sprinkler system and our lighting system. They deserve an A.
American National Sprinkler did a good job. I had an issue, and they came out when I was able to schedule it. They showed up on time, did some work, and explained what they had to do. They were in and out. What happened was, last year I had the system installed, and this year there was construction next door to us. That cut the main line, so they had to fix it. They put in another line, even though they thought it would take a few hours. They did it, and everything seems to be up and running. Their work was A quality.
I liked that it was an easy process. It was just an all-around good process. They installed a landscape sprinkling system. I think we chose them because the company was local, and a friend suggested them—it was a referral kind of thing. They get an A.
It all was great. Everything was fine. They did a sprinkler and exterior landscape lighting, and I have no complaints.
I like that they just got in and did the work, and they follow up when they make calls. They do my yearly service on my sprinkler system. I've had them come out and do service for me for four years. When I bought the house, they installed the sprinkler system, and they were servicing it previously. I would give them an A.
They did great work. American National Sprinkler did everything very well. They put a new sprinkler system in. I just like them—they're great.
