Armour Roofing is a local roofing company based in Sarasota Florida. They subcontract on roofs of new housing and also serve as the contractor on re-roofs of existing homes. One of the things that sets Armour Roofing apart from other roofing companies is that the owner takes the time to meet with and provide in person estimates. This attention to detail ensures that your home gets a full and complete bid. Also all jobs are have a satisfaction guarantee because they stand behind there work and are confident in their results.
Gino Barone is the owner of Armour Roofing and he was doing preliminary marketing research for a friend that was going to start an Armour Roofing franchise in Colorado. After looking at multiple websites he really liked a roofing website that I had created for another client. He gave my information to Greg Holstein and after completion of the Colorado website Gino liked it so much that he asked me to update the Sarasota location. I was given a fairly wide berth to work with, but the colors needed to go with the choice of the logo. Armour Roofing had been in business over 20 years with 1,000's of satisfied clients so we wanted the website to add this element of trust. Florida has a large volume of strong storms and these storms can create havoc on a local homes roof. Gino wanted to make sure that people were aware of the pitfalls of using a storm chaser to do your re-roof project.
We used the original logo of the company so we used the same color scheme of red gray and black. However we added a sliver of bright color with a vibrant Baby Blue to add a little pop to the darker colors of the site. We used choices that were strong solid to help describe the company. After looking at a variety of different sites to get an idea of project direction we decided that it was best to utilize bold headlines with Kenyan Coffe font and an easy to read neutral "Limerick" font for the body. Animations were created on scroll down to draw attention to different elements of the website without being overly distracting. A great website can only be great if your potential customers find it so we made sure to do research and optimize specific pages for different keywords. To help search engine optimize the site we included schema.org and JSON-LD markup along with HTML5 to guide search engines about the layout of the site and what was on each page.
