Still trying to get the load speed down a bit, but so far I like it.
Your sites not bad, I didn't check the alt tags or file size of photos, but that's easy to address. There was good geo location content in the copy but there was a lack of linking off the home page.

Doubt there is any schema markup going on either. It's not bad for 1500, but I'd rather pay much much more for a bigger return, although you don't even have to do that if you "know a guy."

I'm happy with it, and I went from not showing up on the first page to showing up in the middle of the first page for Cabinet Painting Jacksonville, FL with nothing else but the redesign. It's only been a month, and the site has already paid for itself, so I can't really complain.

Again, I just hate that it loads slow still. But not as bad as my last website that took quite literally 2 minutes if it even ever loaded.
