    I know right Sex sells but I didn't want it to be overboard and offensive. I think I accomplished that.

    That's a pretty stellar site. Good job, better than most I've seen for contractors

    You're in the wrong business. You should have been a Web designer.... What was I thinking, Plumbers make ten times more money than designers. That's why my buddy the Brain Surgeon went into Plumbing.

    Just kidding, that's a great looking site. You should be proud!

    You are not kidding. I went to college for IT. I enjoy Web design but I would be lucky to start at $25 an hour. That's a good wage so don't get me wrong but as a plumber I average a min $75 - $150 an hour. That's why I'm a plumber lol.

    I almost forgot, thanks for all the positive feedback. Just out of curiosity, from a customer perspective what is 1 thing you would have changed when visiting the site. I love to here that I did goody, but I feel that there is always room for improvement. Thanks again guys.

    My only two cents of advice is throughout the entire website, you used (the State of Washington) only once. When a layman hits your site, you really need to search it to determine where you do business. For this reason, I would also throw in a map of the state with a circle where you would consider doing business, and as a layman, I can easily identify via the map whether you can help me or not.

    Makes sense. Should I put the Google map and marker from the contact page on the front page then?

    Also the word Washington is used in the title, the description, the body, and in the footer. How much more keyword density do I need?

    I think using a Google map will cheapen your quality. I'd recommend somehow utilizing the profile of the State of Washington (which most can easily identify with) and some of the key cities you service in a circle within the map. in other words, clean, professional, and easy for a layman to know whether you are close enough to help them. If I didn't have a friend who lives in Snohomish, I myself would have no idea what state or country you were doing business, unless I spend the time to read until I saw "Washington."

    Just keep in mind I have no knowledge of how website design works. I'm just an Internet Junkie!
