Web designers in Tracy are great at design, but typically do not know how to properly build a website because they are not developers. An improperly developed website often needs to be re-built from the ground up.
The issues we see most often are compatibility problems with certain web browsers and slow page loading times.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense. It generally is more cost effective to build a new site versus trying to repair an existing one. It is important that you understand the costs, timelines and the pros and cons of sticking with your current website or building a new one. We present each client with a detailed analysis to help them make the choice that best matches their goals and budget.
