HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“I can tell you the truth, I don't really remember, they did such a small amount of work. We were—as far as I know, we were satisfied. We wouldn't have any complaints.”

“I felt that they were very detail oriented, thorough, and kindly; they were all very professional and polite. It was a very good experience. I'll give them an A overall.”

“I still use them. Very professional—they always show up when they say they're going to. I'll give them an A overall.”

“It was good. They were very knowledgeable; they knew how to identify the problem quickly and fix it. I found them online, and they had good ratings. I'd give them an A+ overall. The only recommendation I would have is, if you're going to have to dig up part of the yard, cover up the yard—don't destroy the area around it with mud—put a tarp or something down.”

“They did a good job—so far, it's working and I haven't had any problems; they cleaned up after. So, it's been a very positive experience so far. Again, you know, it's worked for about a week or two and—so I think it's a good job. I'll give them an A overall.”

“They did a great job. They did it quickly and at a good rate. I have no complaints and would highly recommend them.”

“Well, I was at work; when I came home, everything was completed—everything was working fine. I know the guy had to—I came home for lunch, and he was here. He indicated it would be a simple quick job and apparently it was. What I saw of him—the brief meeting with him, it was just a few minutes, but he was very polite, very professional, very courteous, and it was a good experience. I'll give them an A overall. When I came home, I didn't even know that he had been here.”

“Well, they were just very responsive, and they did what they said they were going to do. And it was, you know—I haven't had any problems with the work they have done. I would say an A overall.”

“We're actually pretty new to them right now. I would say they get an A overall. They seemed to know what they were doing.”

“I actually meant to call the office. Every time the guys come out here, regardless of who it is, everybody is really cool. I'd give them an A+ overall. I hit a waterline in my backyard, trying to put up a fence, and they were out here super-quick. I mean, real top notch guys—every time I've called them, they've always been—it's been pleasant for them to come out. They are actually, were used by the people who lived in the house before, they're actually the original people, and we've kept them ever since. We're quite pleased.”

“I liked the personal service. They've just always been my sprinkler-person people. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

“I mean, the guy was nice, helpful, and kind-of let me walk around with him—answered all the questions I had. So, pretty much a good company. I'd say an A+ overall.”

“I was absolutely, totally satisfied. Top-notch. I couldn't say enough great things about them. I'll give them an A+ overall. I'm serious about that—great bunch of guys.”

“It was easy to get a quote. They were fast when I had questions. And then, scheduling—scheduling went really well, and we were really pleased with the results. I'll give them an A+ overall.”

“It was good; I just liked everything about the company. They did good work. I'd give them an A+ overall.”

“The supervisor was phenomenal, and the work crew was great. I mean, you couldn't—I couldn't ask for a better service. I'll give them an A+ overall.”

“They did everything they said they were going to do, and they showed up on time. Basically, in today's age, if you do what you say you're going to do, that's pretty good. I'd give them an A+, overall. I would also highly recommend them—I already have in a couple of places.”

“They showed up when they said they were going to be there, fixed the problem, and moved on. I'll give them an A+ overall. They did the whole—they did everything right. In fact, I need to call them back to fix another problem.”

“They started right when they said they would. They did quality work—cleaned up after themselves. This thing has operated well every year. I started it up after winter time; it started right up, and it was operating satisfactorily. I'll give them an A+ overall.”

“They were prompt, and they said that what they were going to do what they said—and they did what they said they were going to do. That's about it; I'd give them an A+ overall.”

“They were very nice. Well, they haven't done the work for me, they just did an estimate. Unless you're talking about what they—they did something back in November. I would say an A+ overall.”

“They're just straightforward—did what they said they were going to do, and they got everything up and running. I'll give them an A+ overall.”

“Rainmaker Irrigation & Landscaping has done excellent work in installing and maintaining our irrigation system. The technician did a great job of being patient and professional in teaching me how to operate the system and set up the watering programs. Any time I've needed service—whether it's spring startup, winter shutdown, or any other service—he and the whole team respond promptly and get the service taken care of quickly and professionally. I highly recommend Rainmaker—A+.”

“The technician arrived on time, found my leak, and repaired it quickly. He also changed some heads to provide better coverage and reset my complicated timer for me. Great experience after dealing with two other companies—A+.”

“They did an excellent job for me on two different projects. Very dependable. I would highly recommend Rainmaker—A+.”

“I did recommend them to my next-door neighbor. They use them now.”

“The same tech has come out three times over two years, and he's been great each time. He even called me to talk me through a troubleshoot once. Very good group to work with.”

“Rainmaker has been servicing my irrigation system since installing it several years ago. I have a twice a year service contract. I always ask for Daniel, and he is great.”

“They do quality work, they are friendly, and they are easy to work with.”

“My experience with Rainmaker over the last several years has always been positive. From the person answering the phone to schedule an appointment, to the guys showing up to do the work, everyone has always been courteous, professional and friendly. I would, and have, recommended them to anyone having sprinkler system needs.”

“Not only was the initial installation done correctly and in a timely manner, Rainmaker Irrigation has continued to maintain our system in top working order for the last 10 years.”

“Consistently positive experiences with all phases of their operation.”

“We always receive quality service. We have been using Rainmaker for about 14 years.”

“Good company.”

“Anytime we have a problem with our irrigation system, we call Rainmaker and they are very prompt in getting back to us. Our tech, Daniel, is very informed and does an excellent job. He always knows what to do, and tries not to waste our time by 'trying' out different fixes. We have gotten to know Daniel, and trust him completely. My wife has also gotten to know some of the customer service people over the years. They have always proven to be very professional, knowledgeable, and polite over the phone. We have used Rainmaker for several years, after trying several other companies. We like their people, work, dependability, and customer service better than anyone we have tired. We have recommended them to many of our friends and neighbors, and have been able to get many new customers for Rainmaker.”

“Always there when you need them.”

“We have been using Rainmaker for 12 years, and they continue to exceed our expectations every time. We highly recommend them to everyone we know.”

“Our relationship with Rainmaker has always been positive.”

“The service person did a very good job.”

“Great company & irrigation technicians.”

“They repaired a leak with the sprinkler or the irrigation system in our backyard. It wasn't a small leak because it was making our backyard saturated. They were very courteous and sent out somebody that was experienced. He was the only person that was able to resolve my issue because that was the third company I had called to fix our system. He was able to repair it when two other companies weren't. As of now, everything appears to be perfectly fine, and he was super nice when he was out doing his thing, so I'd definitely call them back. Rainmaker Irrigation was referred to us. The owner actually lives in our subdivision, so my wife had referred me to them, and I called them. In fact, we just recommended them to another family friend of ours for repair work. I'd definitely give them an A+. They were the only folks that were able to even take on the problem.”

“We had an excellent experience. The project turned out to be a little more difficult than expected, but they just took care of it, so it was fantastic. It was irrigation work. My favorite thing about their customer service was really the problem solving. They get an A+.”

“They're very polished, very knowledgeable, and quick to figure out the problem and correct the issue. They're perfect. The guy that came out was perfect. He put in a new rain gauge system, mounted it up on my house, and reset my whole system to accept this new rain gauge. Rainmaker Irrigation is A+.”

“They were prompt and on time, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They had to come out and actually move my whole sprinkler system. It was a good day's job. The guy was here all day digging. A friend of mine recommended them. They're A+. Rainmaker is wonderful, just wonderful.”

“They were very good, and the customer service was excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“Rainmaker did an excellent job, and we were very pleased. They came when they said they were going to come, and they repaired the problem. It had to do with a water pipe in our underground sprinkler system. I think there was something they had to come back and do, and they came back and did it. They repaired what they said they were going to do and charged what they said they were going to charge. They're A+.”

“The technician knew what he was doing. The system was already installed when we moved in, but Rainmaker repaired some broken pipes. It took one day. It was excellent, A-grade work.”

“I liked Rainmaker Irrigation. They were efficient and honest. I'd rate them as excellent.”

“They were very good. The guy showed up on time, as I remember, and my wife was pleased with them at the end. I think they just replaced some sprinkler heads and did some maintenance work—they switched some things out for me and stuff like that.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they did an excellent job. The system wasn't working when we moved into this house, but Rainmaker checked everything and got it running. Everything was done right. He set all the controls for me. I called him after the fact with an issue that I had, and he responded right away, so I was pleased with the service all around. They didn't install the system; they were just servicing it for me. I would definitely use them again. I would rate them as an A-grade company.”

“They installed the sprinkler system at our old house. We had some issues with the system at our new house, which they did not install, but I called them to repair it, and they did. The customer service was great. I'd say they're A+.”

“Rainmaker is good because they come out and service us pretty quickly, and they do the job efficiently. Most recently, they do repair work. My favorite thing about the customer service was probably how quickly they could come out. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did their job. When the sprinkler system doesn't work, they fix it. I've used them for about ten years. They're A+.”

“They showed up when they were supposed to, and the service rep was professional, very cordial, and knew his stuff. Everything was done in a timely manner—he was in and out and gone. I just called them out to do a spring start-up inspection, and I think he found one head that needed to be replaced, so while he was there he went ahead and replaced that sprinkler head. He tested the system, too. I had them come out here before when we bought the house, and they did an inspection. They found a bunch of broken stuff, and they did a good job for me, so I just called them back. I'd give them an A+.”

“They were very nice. The guy that came out was very knowledgeable and did a great job. He knew what he was doing, and I appreciated it. He repaired a couple of sprinkler heads. He really was very nice. I had used Rainmaker before and was used to them, so I called them again. They're A+.”

“They fixed the sprinkler system. One of the issues was that it was turned off at the street. Plus, he just made sure that it was operating properly. My favorite thing about their customer service is that they showed up when they said they were going to show up. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“They installed my sprinkler. Most recently, they just came to repair a couple of leaks. The guy came out and did what he needed to do. He was very courteous, and I was very happy with his service. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“Rainmaker Irrigation services our whole community. They were courteous and very responsive, and they came out quickly and got the job done quickly. We had a sprinkler head removed and capped. I'd say it's an A+ for them.”

“It was very efficient, and they came out in a timely manner. We had a whole new system put in. They only took a day. They're an A+.”

“Rainmaker does our irrigation. They're nice, they're honest, and they're on time. They do sprinkler repair and regular maintenance, too. I called them when I had a pool in my front yard from a sprinkler leak. They're just nice people. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a great job. They were punctual, they did the job that they quoted, and they were good to deal with. I had a whole new system to put in. I'd give them an A+ because I had no complaints.”

“We've used them over the last ten years, and every time they come out here, they've done exactly what needed to be done. It's a good company—a very good company—and they're very responsible. When we bought the house, there was already an in-ground sprinkler system. What they would normally do is come out and do a tune-up, like at the beginning of the spring, and make any adjustments or repairs that need to be made. Rainmaker gets an A+ from me. It has been a very, very good experience on every occasion.”

“They've done work on our irrigation system. They were great. They did a good job, and they came when they said they would come and took care of everything. There are no problems whatsoever. They did two things for me. I had some sprinkler heads that had gone bad back in July or August, and they came and replaced those. Then, they came back in October or November and winterized my system for me. Someone recommended them to me. I would rate them as an A+.”

“They did a great job. The guy was courteous and on time. He found the problem and took care of it, and I was very satisfied. The system was turned off, and we couldn't figure out how to turn it on. There was also a leak in a sprinkler head, and he got it working. I'd give them an A+.”

“Rainmaker did work for me at a home that we sold. They had to replace a sprinkler head. They were the original company that we had install it when we built the house. I would recommend them—it's a good company. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it, and they did it for the amount that they quoted. They're A+.”

“They're good—they're very thorough and very accommodating. The last time they came out, they did my fall shutdown. They're going to do the spring service here in a couple weeks, and then they'll shut it down again in the fall. The technician is very thorough and very accommodating. He knows what he's doing, that's for sure. It's an A+ for them.”

“They got our in-ground irrigation system fixed. They're the ones that had installed it originally. I'd grade them as an A+.”

“Rainmaker Irrigation made sure we were up and running, and actually, prior to that, we had them install the sprinkler system about 15 or 16 years ago. We had to get it all redone because we had taken two big, 60-foot trees out, and the roots had gone around everything. Instead of piecing it together, we had them just put a whole new system in, and they did a great job. I'd give them an A+.”

“Rainmaker is great. They were friendly and on time. They fixed my sprinklers. I had a leak in one of my control boxes in the ground, so they just replaced things and stuff like that. I would say they're an A+. They did great work.”

“They did excellent work and a good job. They did a new sprinkler and drainage system installation for us. They showed up when they were supposed to show up, and they did the work and cleaned up. They had no issues. Everything was installed just the way it should be. It was done in one day, from start to finish. I'd give them an A+.”

“We've had them out a couple different times. I think they really try to pinpoint the problem instead of throwing a solution at you. They've replaced sprinkler heads, rerun some lines, and a couple of other different things. I've been working with them for maybe ten years. Rainmaker is A+.”

“They fixed what I needed to have fixed. It was a very small job, but they fixed it the first time. One of the heads was messed up, so they had to replace it. They also adjusted the heads to go in the right direction. I believe they installed my sprinkler system many, many years ago, so we've always used them. I'd give them an A+. They've always been very good, and I have no complaints.”

“I had a broken sprinkler, and they found the problem and fixed it. My favorite thing about their customer service was that they knew what they were doing. They were the only company that handled the type and brand of sprinkler I had. It was A+ work.”

“They did a very good job. They came in, identified the problem, and fixed it. I had a leak in my irrigation system, and there was an electrical wire that they had to repair. I'd give Rainmaker an A+.”

“They did something with our sprinkler system and fixed the problem. I chose them because they called back before the other company did. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did great. Rainmaker did sprinkler system work. It was just really easy service, and they were quick and honest. I think we got the system winterized, and they adjusted our sprinkler heads, too. I would give them an A+.”

“They did what I asked them to do. They switched out some batteries, checked some heads, and fixed the ones that weren't working. I chose Rainmaker because they were the ones who installed the system. A friend had recommended them, too. They get an A grade from me.”

“They were easy to work with. We had a little issue, and they came right away. We didn't know about the phases on the system, so that's what happened. I'd give them an A.”

“They actually were just out on Friday. I like that they have a very easy confirmation email system for scheduling an appointment. They were timely in showing up when they were supposed to, and they were accurate in their estimate. When they came last July, it was to fix a couple of broken sprinklers, and this time, it was to dewinterize the system. We would say it's an A for them.”

“We had an excellent experience with Rainmaker Irrigation. The project turned out to be a little more difficult than expected, and they just took care of it—it was fantastic. They did irrigation work. My favorite thing about their customer service was the problem solving. They earned an A+.”

“They were very polished and very knowledgeable, and they were quick to figure out the problem and correct the issue. They were perfect. They put in a new rain gauge and reset my whole system. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“Rainmaker was prompt and on time, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do. They had to move my whole sprinkler system. Rainmaker is just wonderful—A+.”

“Rainmaker did an absolutely fabulous job, and I'm really, really happy with them. They're absolutely an A+ company.”

“They made sure that the water outlets were all working. We have an area going down into the woods at the back of the house where water needs to pour to the left side and right sides, and I think they made some nice adjustments. Also, they extended the neck of one of my components so it would be a little bit higher and more visible, and next year, I'm going to have them make it even higher. They did a great job. They were thorough, and they knew their business—it was one of the best crews I've found. I think I'd grade them as an A.”

“Rainmaker has covered us for the last eight or nine years, and they've been outstanding. They come out at the beginning of the season and help us open it up, and if we need any parts, they're free as part of our annual contract. There's always a tendency to have to call them if one of the other things in our yard goes wrong, but they do a great job. I was helping our next-door neighbor, and Rainmaker went over there to look at it and help get it started, and she eventually signed up with them, too. I'd give them an A+. They do very well.”

“At some point last year, I called Rainmaker for some additional restorations, and I would say I had a positive experience with the company—they were excellent. They should get an A.”

“Rainmaker fixed our sprinkler system, and we had a fine experience. Their customer service was excellent. We were referred to them, and I would give them an A rating.”

“They came and maintained my sprinkler system. They came on time, and the tech was really friendly and explained everything, which was why I used them. Their customer service was excellent, and they did excellent work.”

“Rainmaker Irrigation & Landscaping did what they were paid to do, and it was fine. I'd give them the best score possible.”

“They repaired my irrigation system. Their customer service was great, and their work was excellent. They showed up when they said they would and took care of what they were supposed to. My contractor recommended them. No complaints here—I would rate them as an A.”

“I recall being very pleased with Rainmaker's service. I would give them an A on their excellent work.”

“Our irrigation system wasn't working at all, and we didn't know what the problem was because we have a very large yard and a lot of irrigation heads. The technician was here for a long time; he checked so many things out and did some repairs, and everything is working well. They did a good job, and I felt confident in them. I think they are very knowledgeable—they know their job, and that's always good to know. The irrigation system was in when we bought the house, and a few things weren't done right, so we were not getting the best out of the system. The company was referenced to me by my daughter, who has also used them. I was very pleased with them, so I'd give them an A.”

“I've used them three times. The last time they were here, they repaired a broken pipe for the sprinkler system. I haven't seen any leaks since, so I guess the quality of the work was very good. All the sprinkler heads and valves they replaced during prior engagements are working fine, too. I'm back with them because it's really a no-nonsense engagement. They look at what needs to be done, figure out the most cost-effective way to do it, finish, and leave a bill—it's great. Rainmaker is A+.”

“They repaired and replaced a couple valves, and the timer box needed to be replaced. The technicians were very knowledgeable and helpful, and they cleaned up after themselves. The customer service was fine as well. I would recommend the company, and I'd use them again. I'd give them an A+.”

“A fence company came through and cut some of the electrical lines, and they later shorted out. I thought it was going to be pretty impossible to find, but Rainmaker found exactly where it was and fixed it. The technician was really helpful and nice, and he got the work done quickly. I found them in the Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A+.”

“I'd give Rainmaker 100 percent—A+. They did a great job.”
