Websites often have fatal issues that simply cannot be fixed when built by a web designer in Rochester Hills.
The first issue we run across is a slow loading web page, and inconsistent user experience across different browsers.
The time and effort it takes to repair the issues on poorly built websites does not make financial sense.
