IMO- Looks good. Clean, efficient, easy to navigate, phone number on the header is always visible, no grammar errors that my wife or I found, overall- B+

Get some better photos. They look, (as others have said) stock. Maybe update the About Us page (Again, as others have said) to make your website more personal.

I do like that it's very easy to navigate. Nice job on that.

What parts on the services page need some work? Basically just the wording? The lay out? How it functions?

Thanks
The content itself. For instance, I'm an electrician in Rahway. Type into Google "Rahway Electrician" and I'm right up there. The reason for this is because the words "Rahway" and Electrician" are used quite a few times in my website. The same applies for someone looking for an EC to do a 200 amp service upgrade. The more times you use the words "200 amp service upgrade" and load it with information pertaining to "200 amp service upgrade" the likelihood of your page coming up in search increases. That's what you want and that's what the search engines want.

Thanks, I will be getting some better photos of the next few projects I finish up and will be up dating the about us page. Making it easy to navigate was something I was trying to go for.

Yes I have been trying to put key words in there without it sounding funny. There is a lot of competition in this area so getting to the top of the search is proving difficult. I've been paying for google adwords until it is able to make it up there organically.

Just make sure that it is being directed to the right target audience!!! I would check with google ads to ensure they were not directing People to my site that were searching for ketchup

What do you think?

The first picture I see is of high rise commercial buildings at night, with car lights streaming by on the highway.

Nothing screams "I want to put some can lights in my basement" like cars streaming down a highway at night and commercial buildings.

If I were a home owner, looking for someone to come hang a ceiling fan, I would instantly think that calling you would not be something that your company would be interested in.

I agree with this quote. It looks like you cater to city contracts for NYC, not someone in there home needing electrical work done, like a panel change or lighting upgrade.
