My friend Jonny recently took a marketing job at a contracting company. Midwest Contracting desperately needed a new logo and a fresh remodeling website design. Since I have designed sites for several other construction firms before, he called me!
Remodeling website design story
As soon as I finished their new logo design and helped them change their email provider, we were ready to focus on the site. Midwest provided a list of features for me to incorporate. Of course, if you are looking to remodel a room in your home, or build a new house, you need to see examples of the company’s work. The Indiana contractor provided me with a plethora of photos to feature.
Once I had all of the pictures, Jonny and I worked together closely to make sure they fit in their proper categories. Midwest Contracting focuses on five main tasks: remodeling, additions, decks and patios, roofing, and foundations. I created pages for each of these categories, and each one featured a photo gallery of work.
Visitors may click on the thumbnails in each gallery to display them as larger images in a lightbox format. Each image also has a caption below, and users can navigate through the rest of the image with left and right arrows in the lightbox. The thumbnails also display below the main image, so that users can also navigate by clicking them.
Perhaps the most important feature of the remodeling website design is the large “Get a Quote” form. The form displays prominently on each page. It consists of big, bold fonts and fields in order to catch the viewers’ attention.
I set the homepage apart from the rest of the site by employing a large, fixed image in the background. This photo highlights a deck the company built onto a big, beautiful brick home. I darkened the photo just enough, so that the white text would be legible enough.
