check the sites in my signature to see my two most successful sites.

If you want your site done properly hire a professional to do it. Most contractors are not artists. Myself, Nathan, Hatchet, Cole... we all maintain our own sites but we've also paid professionals for their help from time to time.

Hey guys if you are looking for a logo I can sketch one up and try to load it to the site. I have done a couple for friends and they are very happy. I have taken graphic design courses. If you list the sort of thing you want , ie. the name etc., I can see if I can come up with anything.

I never really had a logo. I did look into it once, but it did cost a few hundred bucks to buy the design, and I didn't feel the need. Things just keep trucking along fine for me, despite not having a logo.

Brenda's site is good if you like all the various shades of brown. I half-expected more colors. I had to 'reload' the site several times to get it to load. There might be a server issue for you to look into Brenda.

Yes I have made an inquiry with the server, they are checking into it now.
Hopefully it will be resolved within a few hours.
The shades of brown that you refer to are suppose to be shades of gold. My PC shows golden tones but have seen it have more brown tones or a dull copper tone on other computers.

You need an easier domain name to remember in my opinion.
Also, it loads slowly because the whole site is flash. I would go with a straight html site if I were you. Its easier to get picked up and indexed by google and other search sites that way.
I would also add a "request an estimate" page.

Its easy to navigate though which is good. Did you design the site yourself or did someone do it for you?

Here is a place I am checking into for web sight templates. I found them by accident while looking for brochure templates.

The pricing seems great…I just have to wonder if there is a catch? Maybe they are hard to customize? For $64 I will try them and see what happens.

you may be looking at www.templatemonster.com or some other site. The catch is that its nothing more than an image and you still need to code it. Also, you share teh same design with other companies.

They are a good option for most contractors as long as you can find someone to finish the coding for you.

Lisa, Great to have you here.

I grew up in Northern Virginia and used to live in South Riding before moving down to Florida. I'm trying to remember if I saw your vans around town?

Anyways, glad you found the board.

shimmerl - I can help you out with a logo if you want. Just post some of the info and name you want on a logo. like your business name and/or slogan. I can sketch up a design or a few and try to post it here. I can use the information from your profile and site to come up with some if you want me to.

I just took a vacation to the Tampa area, it is beatiful and very different from Canada.
