__ Building Services Net ... janitorial company
Drew said:
The site is a half-completed website that I'm making for a Janitorial company in Arkansas. This is really my first actual site that I'm going to make any money with, so I'd like to here any and all criticisms that are out there. KEEP IN MIND: I haven't compressed any of the images yet, so the load time is probably double what it should be. Thanks, Drew http://www.building-services.net Submitted by: D. Stephens

Drew, I like your graphic on the top of the pages. Here are my comments on the rest.

While almost all web sites are under some stage of construction, you really don't have to tell your readers so. Please never use under construction signs, it's very unprofessional. All websites should always be under construction. You said in your review request "I haven't compressed images yet" (be considerate, do this before asking people to donate their time...)
__ I'm confused here, what is it you want us to review? There are some images and very little content.
__ Your home page (not the entry page) only has links, maybe it isn't done, I don't know, but something needs to go in the center, an introduciton of some sort of the Company. You don't really need to say "Welcome to...." it should be implied by their arrival.
__ Your About US page looks very nice. Although the content needs to be written to sound professional, not trying to be offensive, but it doesn't sound like a professional wrote it, it's not real bad, just mediocre.
__ Hope this helps, and please resubmit when you optimize your graphics and add content.
