How builderboy started their web page design journey

Summary

Need homepage and landing page design for Mylocalcontracting.com. Visit everycontractor.com, bestcontractors.com to get a general idea of how competitors are laying out their pages and seek to design an even better page.

Company name

Mylocalcontracting.com

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

mylocalcontracting.com is a nationwide directory connecting commercial and residential customers to building professionals nationwide. 

Wants

Home Page:  The home page main focus is to generate directory searches from customers seeking quotes from local contractors.  The homepageshould contain a drop down menu for major US cities and/or graphic US Map.  Builder Categories also need to be displayed as this will be a directory.  The homepageshould also display colorful, randomly rotated banner ads of featuredcontractors who will pay yearly advertising fees to advertise on thesite directory pages.  Be creative and remember the site focusis the customer looking for local contractors.

TopNavigation headings: home, about us, project advice, marketingprograms, buy tools (shopping cart), contact us.  More top nav settings:  homeowner login (myproject), contractor login (contractor marketing system).  The design of these nav pages can be submitted for this contest as well. 

Color scheme should have the look and feel of homeimprovement, strong fonts, (think Home Depot and use of light oranges, yellows, black highlights, reds, light blues, grays).  Cartoons with a home improvement theme alongside builder categories is a suggestion....testimonials are another homepage suggestion.

Don't want

- Item 1...The site should not look soft or feminine in any way as this is a site niche is the macho building trade.  Preference will be given to sturdy, simple designs that incorporate the best elements of competitor directories outlined above.
