Plumbing website inspiration is a little harder to come by on average, as a lot of plumbing websites look out-dated.
- Maybe you don’t think that your plumbing website has to be cutting-edge.
- Perhaps your competitor’s sites look way more unprofessional than yours.
- Maybe you’re already successful and you don’t see what value a custom website might have.
We decided to curate 5 awesome plumbing websites to give some examples of companies who invested in their websites, leading to better and more high-quality leads.
We’ll give you what we like and what we don’t like about each example, and then share 5 keys to making sure your plumbing website is as likely to convert website visitors into leads as possible, below the examples.
5 Awesome Examples of Awesome Plumbing Website Design:
Each of these exemplifies something we strongly suggest for people trying to
1. Mr. Rooter – very easy to get started + clear services, modern design
What’s working well: The smiling faces, easy to get started call-to-action, and the 4 main services all clear and right away – complements the modern, fresh – full-width design.
What may not be working well: ‘There’s a reason they call us Mr.’ has to be one of the weirder / more vague tagline’s I’ve seen in quite a long time. A good reminder that the MESSAGING on your site is just as important as the design. It needs to be persuasive and clear. “If you confuse, you lose.”
2. MCH – Simple design – maybe a little too simple.
What’s working well: What simplicity does is make the things that ARE there stand out more, that’s why you don’t want a website that feels ‘cluttered.’
What may not be working well: The problem here is that the design is so simple that there might be a few more things visitors would need before making a request. Trade organizations, a clear phone number, pictures of the team, sub-services and process for instance.
3. Williams Mechanical – pleasant vibes, a clear hierarchy
What’s working well: The brand here is strong – and gives a very pleasant ‘vintage feel.’ Yes, Williams does a lot more than just plumbing, but the design is simple enough. and the site laid out well enough – it doesn’t overwhelm you.
What may not be working well: There are a couple of very boring sections on this site – where they’ve just crammed in a bunch of text. The reason for this is to give Google a way to know what the services they offer are (text is good for SEO) but there are a lot of ways that a plumbing website can do this without it feeling just like a huge chunk of text on the site, like alternating images on the left and right at least.
4. Benjamin Franklin – Clean, bright and trustworthy design.
What’s working well: The number right away, the easy search and the quick bullet points of the process are all super useful for the average homeowner just looking to get quick service.
What may not be working well: We really like big smiling faces, and something that indicates the service right away in an image. In this case the photo is heavily overlayed, but honestly – this whole site is very well done.
5. Cornerstone Plumbing – Human-centric, centered nav
What’s working well: I love the happy pictures, very humanizing.
What may not be working well: The color scheme feels a little heavy and not particularly trustworthy – I’m not sure you want brown as the main color if you’re a plumber.
These are just a great place to start – of course, you’ll want to have your site custom made from scratch to accentuate what makes your company special. Let us know if we can help design something you’re proud of!
