Hi Robert

Looking good!

Do you specialize in slate?

Porcelain is spelled wrong. I would get more pics. It looks like you've done one job since 2001.

In the Kitchen Photo album, that looks like a bathroom to me.

Nice work though!

I would lose the flash intro. People don't come to your site to see that stuff. Also, you should have a links area so that you can exchange links with other sites.

My .02

I would put your location at the end of the first paragraph:

"Since 2001, Sun Country Customs has provided outstanding craftsmanship to its customers by designing and installing custom tile, stone, and porcelain installations in the Los Angles metro area." or where it is you work.

Make the words "custom works" and "contact" links to the respective area so a user can go there from the text as well as the link on the left. The purpose of the site is to get people to contact you, so make that as easy as possible. You may want to use the term "Portfolio", although "Custom Works" contains the word 'custom' thus it reinforces the brand. I would put something like "I can make your stone kitchen come to life. Contact me to set up an appointment" as a link at the bottom of each of the portfolio pages. Once again, get them to the contact form when they are dreaming of that stonework on their counter top.

On the contact page, make the email address a mailto link so they can just click on the text and launch their e-mail client.

If you can get a short form to have them fill out optional information, such as job size, time frame, etc. that can help you qualify a prospect. Something like

"You can contact me by phone or e-mail. Optionally, you can give me some information on your project so I can better serve your needs".

Contact you by
() e-mail [enter e-mail address]
() phone [Phone number]
[Best time to call]

Job location
Brief description

I like the tone, so keep the text personal - it conveys your style.
