What makes a good builders & contractors website?

Why does a builder or a contractor need a website? You might already make a good living contracting, and have a steady, reliable stream of dedicated clients.They know who you are, you know who you are, why waste time and energy on a website?

While your existing clients already know where to go for the best plastering around, most people are going to turn to Google Maps. And how are you going to get on someone’s smartphone if you don’t have a website? You’re not. Hundreds of potential customers are never going to know you exist unless they physically come across your storefront – not a good look if you don't have a storefront at all, especially not when more and more people are looking up services on their mobiles before they leave the house.

Ok, so, you know you’ll need a website for your building or contractor hire, but what sort of website should you build? What kind of features does it need? It can be difficult to know what features you need to build the perfect website for your business, let alone how to implement them, but don’t despair – we’ve built 1 Mln of websites for builders and contractors just like you, so we’re experts when it comes to knowing what your website needs.

As a rule, your website should always feature three things: excellent usability, appealing aesthetics and informative content.

In practice, this means that you’ll want to pay particular attention to the quality of the photography or other images used, the design of the page – as well as how it looks on mobile, which is how more and more people are searching for small businesses today – and clear, concise description of building and contractor hire’s services, location, and hours.
