Web Design Mistakes that Hurt Your Construction Company

  • Your site isn’t completely mobile friendly. These days, most people first encounter your website on their phone or other mobile device. If it doesn’t look good and work properly, they’ll leave.
  • The pages take too long to load. This hurts the user experience and how Google and other search engines rank your website.
  • The site doesn’t communicate a unique selling proposition, or a solid idea of why people should trust your company for their construction project.
  • It’s not clear what type of construction you do.
  • There’s no portfolio of completed projects with high-quality photos.
  • You don’t outline your experience of have important industry trust signals like licenses and certifications, insurance, trade group memberships, safety protocols, a list of clients, etc.
  • The site is too cluttered, uses too many fonts/colors, has low-quality images, has big blocks of text that are hard to skim, or is otherwise visually unappealing. Also, typos, spelling/grammar mistakes, and difficult-to-follow writing undermine your credibility.
  • The site is hard or confusing to navigate, or it’s hard to find essential information (including contact information).
