PattiLorin got their new web page design by running a design contest:
Create a sophisticated 3-page webdesign for Residential Home Builder
Check out PattiLorin's Web page design contest…
We are residential contractors that primarily specializes in remodeling. And our secondary service is doing the smaller projects of residential damage and repairs.
I would like to see a long homepage design that highlights their services and some beautiful remodeling photos they've done. I want the viewer to see large images, clear sections, simple text messaging. I want the site to look very clean, uncluttered, modern and current. Their existing website looks very dated. We just redesigned their logo so pull cues from logo and create a new look for their site.
3 page webdesign is needed with the new site measuring 980 pixels wide. One long homepage that touches on all aspects of the site then I want a 2 interior dedicated pages for the portfolio and another for their new blog. Homepage: I like the clean header like the Vans.com site, white background above a large slider/banner image. I'd like to rotate through about 5 of their best portfolio images on the banner with large caption on top. We have 3 services that need to be prominently featured on homepage both in the body under the slider as well as in the drop down menu: Remodels & Additions, Repairs & Improvements and General Construction. I'd like their testimonials to be seen at various points inside their site such as set in a horizontal band that sits above the footer. I like the visual break of how a quote reversed out of an image or a colored field to stand out from the copy. I'd like to add in a new section (not in their current site) for the owner to show one photo of themselves along with some greek text for a brief bio statement. Contact form can sit at the bottom of the homepage and the primary navigation across the top can jump to the homepage footer.
What to avoid
It's important to note that we are residential contractors that build homes. We do NOT build commercial buildings or highrises. We also do NOT build custom homes from scratch. We purposely concentrated on doing remodeling work and the smaller projects of damage repairs and improvements. This is important as this sets us apart from our competitors because they don't want these smaller projects and we do! We don't want to appear as high-end luxury, but we do want a sophisticated and clean website that clearly communicates our sweet spot.
This will be built on Wordpress so keep in mind that's how this site will be programmed. Please go to their current site (http://www.cabuilders.com) and use our existing content and place into the new design for placement. I may be rewriting and replacing images as we see this site come together. Please ask me lots of questions as to what other clarifications you need and want. thanks
