Website Wish List:

The content is difficult to read against the bright red background with text too small and too thin. The legibility of the text could be improved by choosing a thicker, bolder font and enlarging the font size 15 to 25 percent.

4. AT Homes Builder

Framing construction turned to commercial construction.

AT Homes founder, Alex Tsymbal, was raised on the belief that whatever you do, you need to do it right. You can see and feel this value in each step of their home building process. Every home they build, even after they pass along the keys and move the family in, is their home. Even after the warranty is up, AT Homes still takes pride in their workmanship and take care of their people.

Animated arrows, portfolio photos and a clean design modernize this compact site.

What makes this construction website stand out:

  • Testimonials are seen on every page, showcasing their accomplishments. People want to know the reviews of past customers to determine the quality of the company.
  • On the Photos page, completed houses are on display to prove AT Homes capabilities. Each home has its own page where more photos can be found, detailing the work accomplished.
  • This site possesses a clean design, making it more attractive. Adequate white space allows the website to breathe; an open feeling website pulls visitors in.

  • We can never get enough white space! It is sometimes called negative space, but there is nothing negative about this construction company’s white space. Only positive vibes shine through here!
  • An organized and filterable team page is available for navigating. Family is obviously important for S.M. Wilson‘s team, or they would not have put so much effort into their team page.
  • PDF and print icons can be found on the service pages. This is a neat feature for visitors to be able to use and it only increases S.M. Wilson’s chance of obtaining new customers.
  • Different sections of services can be viewed directly on the overall service page itself, instead of clicking on the navigation bar and directing you somewhere else. An example of this can be seen on the what we build page.

Website Wish List:

The contact us page has an alarmingly bright lime green tint over a picture and underneath a fill out form. To some viewers, it may be distracting and negatively stimulating. We suggest ridding the contact page of it and leaving the picture not tinted.
