HOMEOWNER REVIEWS SELECTED FROM SURVEYS COLLECTED:

“I have no problem with American National. I love American National. They did a beautiful job putting on our system and the same in the back. It was excellent. I called, they came out, they do what they're supposed to do and they're fine. I would give them an A+. I'm very, very likely to recommend them.”

“American National Sprinkler & Lighting came out immediately after we called them and they explained everything very clearly and professionally. And then when they came to do the work, they were very professional and did a great job and the sprinkler system's been working perfect and it's been over 10 years. They turn it on and they close it for the winter. I'd give them an A+.”

“They are just great. They did sprinklers. I would grade them an A+.”

“They're doing well. I've had them for a long time already. So basically, they know what to do already. I think they're the ones who installed it and at the same time do maintenance. They're doing an excellent job, A+.”

“I think the workers were prompt, they were friendly, they were respectful of my house—they put on these little booties when they walked in. They let me know when they were leaving. I would say that that was wonderful. They just initially came for system shut off, winterization and shut off. I'd give them an A.”

“American National Sprinkler & Lighting just arrived on time and they knew where everything was and how to do it. I didn't really know where all the system connections were and everything and they didn't have any trouble finding anything. It was great. They just did the sprinkler system—the winterizing and turning it back on for the Spring. I would give them an A.”

“We've used American Sprinkler for about sixteen years. We're been very satisfied with our service. They came out promptly when we had a sprinkler pipe break. They right away got it done. I'd give them the highest possible grade. I'd recommend them at the high end of the positive scale.”

“They're on time, which I like. They're usually on the earlier side when they give you a ring, which is always fine and they're always very friendly and courteous. They did the shut down and turn on of our sprinkler systems. It was already installed when we moved into the home. I'd give them an A+.”

“I like their service people. The same people come out every year. They know right where to go and how to take care of things, and they are in and they were out. They are very respectful. Turning on and turning off our sprinklers and making sure they are all running right at the beginning of the season. I would grade them an A+.”

“They didn't do the installation. We just got the service. It's been good, no complaints.”

“They show up on time. They do the work properly. They did sprinkler systems. They are the ones who installed it. I'd give them an A overall. They closed our sprinklers and they've done a good job. I've got no issues with that. I'd absolutely recommend them.”

“They opened up my sprinklers. I'd give them an A.”

“They do the job. Just routine sprinkling, I would grade them an A.”

“They were fine. They're pretty quick. It's easy. It's an outside thing. They do what they've got to do and then that's it. They just turn on and off our sprinkler systems. I'd give them an A. I don't have any complaints. They literally turned them on and turned them off. They remind me when I need it done. They call me because I would never remember. I'd recommend them. They're good.”

“They're fine. They're competent. The only thing they do is the landscape sprinklers. I'm satisfied with what they do, A-. I would recommend them.”

“I've been with them for years. This previous job was for the sprinkler system. I'd give them an A. They know a lot more than I do.”

“I used them for some work in my business as well. They did a good job. They installed sprinkler systems. I'd give them an A.”

“They're just very reliable and they worked quickly and they come when they say they're coming. I'd give them an A.”

“They're always great. They manage our sprinkler system as well as our back-flow preventer. I'd give them an A+. I'm fairly happy. I do recommend them.”

“American National is perfect. They repaired my sprinkler system. They are always on time, they do a great job, and they don't leave me with questions. They get an A+.”

“They did a really good job. They were very efficient, and they didn't make a mess; they were wonderful. They installed a new underground sprinkler system a couple of years ago, and they moved things around a little bit last year. They deserve an A+.”

“They did sprinkler work for me. They've been working very well for us. They're there when they say they'll be there, and I was very satisfied with their cleanliness and expertise. I would give them an A. I've already recommended this company.”

“They serviced our sprinkler system. They came when they said they would, they were efficient, and they got the job done. I would give American National Sprinkler an A.”

“It's been great so far. They installed a new sprinkler system for us. I give them an A+.”

“They were turning our sprinkler system off. They were quick, and it was fine. I'll give them an A-.”

“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.”

“I liked that the technicians were timely, expert in their work, and efficient. They completed everything that we needed, were very communicative in letting us know on what was going on, and were very easy to work with. They did sprinklers and outdoor specialty lighting—landscape lighting. They were recommended to us by friends. I'd call them A-rate.”

“They're very prompt, they come when they're supposed to come, and I have no complaints. They put in a sprinkling system and some lighting. They come out for maintenance. They did the installation years ago, and they've done A-level work.”

“They installed a brand-new sprinkler system last year, and this year, they added on to the sprinkler system. They came out and shut it off for me last year, and they came out and turned it on for me this year. They called me to schedule a time—they had set it up. It was very good. I'm still using them since I've had no issues. I had one issue with a sprinkler head at the end of last year, and they said, 'Don't waste the time fixing it,' because it was already the end of October. The day they came out and turned on the sprinkler, I had forgotten about it, but they fixed the one that wasn't working. I've had a very positive experience with them. I chose them because my landscape company referred me to them. I'd give them a solid A.”

“American National Sprinkler did a checkup on my system. I chose them because I was convinced they were a good and reliable company; therefore, I hired them to do it. They deserve an A.”

“I used American National Sprinkler—I've been using them for 14 years. They installed my sprinkler system, and they turn it off and turn it on. If I had to choose a grade for them, I'd rate them A.”

“They provide my sprinkler service. They come promptly twice a year, and I'm very happy with them. I'd give them an A. I chose American National Sprinkler because when we bought this house, that was the company that was already in service.”

“The guys from American National are great. I like the integrity and the workmanship of the company. We've been working with them for years, and when things come up, they're really good about getting them fixed. They do automatic sprinklers for me. I chose them because of their longevity and years of experience. They're an A-level company.”

“American National is fantastic. I like that they're very responsive, and they provide good, quality work. They installed my sprinkler system, and they maintain it. They deserve an A grade.”

“They're reliable. They do my sprinkler system's yearly maintenance, and they also did landscape lights. Everyone is very accessible, and they're easy to get a hold of—that's grade-A service.”

“American National did great, and they were professional. They installed the sprinkler system, and they did a good, A+ job.”

“We've been with them for many, many, many years. They put in our sprinkler system, and we're very satisfied. I first started using them 25 years ago, and I would give them an excellent rating. I've never had any complaints.”

“I worked with American National Sprinkler & Lighting. They put in sprinklers and maintained them—it was a full installation. This was maybe four years ago. They have done service work on the sprinkler since then, and they've made a repair. They're very responsive—when I call, they call right back, and they call to follow up and check that things are working OK. I've had nothing but good experiences with them. I would rate them an A+.”

“They were efficient, friendly, and clean, and they put shoe covers on when they come in the house. I always have the same guy—at least most of the time. They originally installed the sprinkler system for me, and I stuck with them for maintenance ever since. My contractor suggested them, and I would give them an A+.”

“They come when they're supposed to come, they're clean, their paperwork is in order, and they're polite. They usually open and close my sprinkling system for the season, and they replace any heads that have been taken out by the snowplow or damaged by something from the lawn service. We've been using them for 12 years, and they've earned an A+.”

“American National Sprinkler & Lighting was very good. They put a new gasket and seal in my backflow valve, which was leaking water, and it seems to be OK now. I've been with them for eighteen years—they installed the system on day one. I would give them an A rating.”

“They run our sprinkler system; they turn it on and turn it off at the beginning and end of the season. Ten years ago, I was there for the installation. I would give their business an A.”

“I've never had a problem with them—they are your typical sprinkler service. They turn on my sprinkler system, fix the heads for me, and then turn the system off. We've used them for years. We had them come to one of our homes for an installation after a builder told us about them, and I would give them an A.”

“American National Sprinkler & Lighting does some work for me, and they are a good company. They do my irrigation system. I would rate them an A.”

“It was great—they did a great job. They turned off our sprinkler system. They were on time, they were efficient and polite, and they did the job that they were supposed to do. We called them because they were the people that had installed our sprinkler. I would give them an A.”

“They did a fine job with the sprinklers. Everything worked, and I didn't have to deal with any problems. They get an A grade.”

“I'm satisfied; they seem to have competent service technicians. They've been doing our work for 15 years, and I would grade them an A.”

“Everything was fine. They put our system in originally, and they recently came and cleaned out the lines for the winter. I'd give their company an A rating.”

“They came when they said they were going to, and they did what they said they were going to do. The sprinklers have worked fine for many years now, and everything has been OK. I'd give them an A.”

“The sprinklers work, and I like them. I'd give American National Sprinkler & Lighting an A.”

“My experience with American National Sprinkler was beyond positive—I've never dealt with a company more professional in my life. They put in a system about 20 years ago, and they repair it, set it up, and make sure it's running every single year. They've just been wonderful. There aren't enough superlatives—A+.”

“American National Sprinkler's customer service is good. I made an appointment, and they showed up when they said they were going to. The guys that come out are great—they're really terrific. I would give them an A.”

“I've used American National Sprinkler for years. You call them, and they come and do what they're supposed to do. They've installed sprinklers for me, they've turned them on and off, and they've repaired them. They're wonderful. I like them very much. They're an A+.”

“They did a great job. They installed an irrigation system on my new deck and in my yard. The quality of work was fantastic. If I had the need, I would absolutely use the company again. I would give them an A+, and I would absolutely recommend them. They do a terrific job.”

“I thought they were excellent. They left me with a positive experience. We've used them for multiple projects in our home, and the last time we used them, they put in a sprinkler system. The time frame in which they finished the work was wonderful, and so was the cleanup. Everything has been excellent. American National is an A+ company.”

“They've been terrific. The work has always been first-class, and we've been very happy with the service that we've gotten from them. They installed the sprinkler system, and they come out and turn it on every spring and off every fall. They repair anything that's gotten broken or that there's been a problem with. I would give them an A+.”

“They handle the sprinkler systems at my home. The quality of work is excellent, and they provide really excellent service. They're one of the best service providers I use with my house, and I use quite a few. They've always been reliable, and I have no complaints. I'd give them an A.”

“The quality of the system they put in and the attention of the workmen made my experience with American National positive. The first time I used them, they adjusted the heads and put in a complete lawn system. They were excellent. I'd give them an A+ grade.”

“We have their sprinkler system, and we've been highly satisfied. The workers were very professional. A+.”

“American National installed a sprinkler system for me. That was my first time using them, and I'd go back and do business with them again in the future. The cleanup was excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“They replaced a sprinkler head for me. They always do a tremendous job, and we're very pleased. Based on the former jobs they've done for me, I'd rate them an A+. There's nothing that I can think of that has been an issue for us with them.”

“The previous owner of our house had used American National, so we continued with them, and we have had only good experiences. Just recently, at the beginning of the season, they replaced some valves that needed replacing. They turn the sprinklers off and on, and they see to it that the backup flush is being taken care of. We have had no problems with American National, and we can only highly recommend them. I would give them an A+.”

“The job was done perfectly, on time, and in a very professional manner. I was happy with it, and I can't complain about it. They installed an irrigation system around my house and backyard, and I've just seen them doing a similar project for a neighbor. I'd grade them an A.”

“American National Sprinkler installed the sprinkler system, and they maintain it for us, too. They're great—they're doing a fabulous job. We're very pleased with them.”

“Our service was excellent through American National, and we have no complaints. They installed a sprinkler system and came out for multiple repairs every time we broke one of the sprinkler heads. They did a really good job.”

“American National Sprinkler did some work for me a while back. They put in a sprinkler system for our yard, and it works terrific. Everything has held up fine. They give good service, and they show up when they say they will. Their customer service is fine—very good. They came recommended by the landscaper who was working on our yard. They put in a system that works, and they come out to turn it on in the spring and off in the fall, and it continues to work. I'd give them an A.”

“I think American National does excellent work. We started with them in 2010, and this is the type of company I would use in the future. Every year, they turn the sprinkler system on, and then they winterize it in the fall to get it ready for the winter. They did a great job. I think they're an A.”

“I had a very positive experience with American National. I have a sprinkler system from them, so that's their most recent work for me. They're so nice and reliable. If I have a problem, they come out right away—that day, someone will come out and check it. I have never had any problems. The workers that come out are very nice and very courteous, and when they have to come into the house and go in the basement to turn the system on or off, they wear booties on their shoes. They're just very courteous. I've had my system for a couple of years, and I recommended them to a neighbor who went with them; he's also had a positive experience. I'm going to give them an A+.”

“The technicians from American National are dependable and timely with their services. They did irrigation work for me, and the quality of the work was very good. I have used them for the past seven or eight years, and I'll grade them an A+.”

“American National takes care of our irrigation system, and they do a good job. We're always happy with what they do. We were working with other people that we weren't happy with, so we probably talked to some neighbors and asked them what they thought of American National, and they must have told us that they liked them, so that's why we went with them. I would give them an A+.”

“I think American National does a very good job. They're very professional, and they do good quality work. They replaced some sprinkler heads for me, and they've also replaced some valves. I've been using their service for four or five years, and I will continue to use them. I'd rate them A+.”

“American National did maintenance for my sprinkler system. I decided to use them because they installed my sprinkler system years ago. I like that the technicians are pleasant, on time, and very courteous. I'll give them an A+.”

“They're so good—they're really good. Something broke with our sprinkler system, and American National fixed it. They came out, evaluated it, and gave me an estimate, and then they came out and fixed it. It's working, so I'm assuming it's great quality of work. If I had the need, I would use the company again—I have them on speed dial. I really like these guys; I really do. I've had only good experiences with them. They're really reliable and efficient—they have an emergency line, and they call you back right away even if it's after hours. I would give them the A+. They're just really good.”

“Everything was fine with American National—no problems. I didn't have any complaints. They turned on the sprinklers for the summer. We were happy. There were no problems with the quality of their work, and the sprinklers are working. They finished the work within a reasonable amount of time—the same day. We have worked with the company for a long time, and I would give them an A+.”

“I'm a new owner to this house, and the house already came with a sprinkler system installed, so I've only used their services twice. They did backflow testing for me. They were prompt when I told them to come, and they did their job on time. I'd give them an A+ grade based on my experience with them.”

“I had a positive experience with American National. They installed our sprinkler system. They have reliable, quick service, and I would use them again. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“The service we got from American National was fine. They redid some sprinklers for us. We already had the sprinkler system, and they redid a bunch of lines. I would rate them an A+.”

“Everything's fine—they do a good job. I've had very few problems with the sprinkler system, but they've taken care of them if there ever was an issue. I'd have to say they rate an A+.”

“American National comes to turn on my sprinklers. The customer service is great, and I would use them in the future. I'd say they get an A+ from me.”

“American National put in my sprinkler system about three years ago, and they maintain it. Since then, everything has held up well. The workers are great—they did a good job. There was no problem. I'd give them an A+.”

“We have done business with American National for several years now—probably ten—and they always do a good job. They do work with us every year because they have to open and close the sprinkler system. If there's ever anything that is not working right, they always come in a timely way and fix what needs to be fixed. Everything has held up very well so far. They're always efficient and courteous, and we like them. The landscapers originally recommended them. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“American National put the sprinkler system in about 15 years ago, and they have serviced me in the last 4 years. They were always very helpful, thoughtful, and dependable. When I schedule something, they're here. The last time they were here, I had a wire that somehow got cut or broken that went from the house out to one of the remote sensor or starting stations, so they had to dig a trench in the yard and then tunnel under the driveway. It was quite a job, but they did a very nice job—you can't even see it. Give them an A+.”

“The previous owner put the sprinkler system in and used American National, so we use them, too. They're here when they need to be and when we're scheduled to have them. They're quick, efficient, and friendly. They come out to open and close the system, fix any sprinkler heads that need to be fixed, and to check the backflow test that needs to be done yearly. I'd give them an A+.”
