ITD Interactive Website Redesign Case Study: White Construction Company
“The website has been very beneficial for our company! I have seen an increase in leads coming in through our website. I am very pleased with the design and layout of our new website and our new website is more user friendly now. The new design your own building page gives our customers a visual of what color their new building will be. Having an up to date website makes our company stand out above the rest.”– Brandon White, Owner/Manager of White Construction
White Construction is a family-owned business in Johnson City, Tennessee that specializes in the sales and construction of metal roofing and “post frame buildings,” a type of structure that uses heavy wood beams as the frame with a metal roof on top. They approached ITD Interactive about a total site overhaul in early 2017.
White Construction’s existing website was built around 2007 and hadn’t changed much in the ten years since. It mainly served as a place to put contact information, general details about the business, and photos of completed construction projects. They wanted a new site with a more modern look that would be mobile-friendly, easy to update in-house and offer more content for potential customers to see. During the planning phase co-owner Brandon White also had an idea – what if there was a way for customers to visualize what their building might look like with their hundreds of color combinations?
The process began with a new brand for White Construction including a logo and color scheme. ITDi then developed a clean layout for the site with a consolidated navigation menu that organized the site’s content in a more user-friendly way that would also work well on mobile. A call to action was placed in a convenient location on appropriate pages to make it easy for customers to request quotes for their projects. We also visited White Construction’s location to take photos of their office and warehouse as well as building materials to use as textures on the page.

The Results of White Construction’s Redesign
Brandon White says they’ve noticed a marked increase in leads coming from their new website. Many users have noted the ease of using the site, as well as the how convenient the custom color tool is when deciding what colors to choose for their building. On launch we showed Brandon how he can use Google’s Real-Time Analytics tool to watch how traffic reacts on his website after one of the company’s commercials airs on local television stations to monitor what pages they’re visiting the most, which allowed us to retool the front page for an easier user experience.
Statistically the site is doing very well a year and a half after launch. There has been a steady increase of new visitors and the average user spends over three minutes on the site with the Gallery, Design Your Building and Contact Us for a Quote pages being among the most-visited on the site, offering an easy path for users to learn who White Construction is, what they do, and how to get started on a new project.
