Let’s cut the crap. If you’re in the construction game, you know the importance of having a strong online presence. Over 80% of customers are searching online before making decisions. That means if your website isn’t up to scratch, you’re losing business. FunkPd gets it. Founded by Nolan Phelps, a guy who knows the construction world inside out, FunkPd is the go-to web design firm for construction businesses across Canada. We’re not just building websites; we’re building your future.

The FunkPd Advantage

Expertise in the Construction Industry

Nolan Phelps is the real deal. With a decade of experience in construction and game development, he’s got the insights and skills to understand your business’s unique challenges. From managing tight deadlines to handling complex logistics, Nolan’s experience ensures FunkPd delivers web solutions that are as sturdy as the buildings you create. We tailor our services to meet the specific needs of tradespeople and contractors, ensuring your website does more than just look good—it works hard for you.

Nolan’s background means he speaks your language. When we design a website for a contractor, we include features like easy-to-navigate project galleries, detailed service listings, and a robust contact system. These elements make it easy for potential clients to find the information they need, helping them decide to hire you. Plus, our understanding of the construction workflow means we can integrate tools that streamline your operations, from project management to client communication.

Bridging Traditional Trades with Modern Technology

Let’s face it—construction businesses aren’t always the first to jump on the tech bandwagon. But FunkPd bridges that gap. Our user-friendly designs cater to both tech-savvy clients and those who are new to digital tools. We make complex technology simple, integrating modern solutions into your workflow. Imagine a website where clients can easily navigate your services, view project galleries, and get estimates without hassle. That’s what FunkPd delivers.

Many contractors might be hesitant to use a new project management tool. We design our websites to integrate seamlessly with these tools, providing a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for anyone on your team to learn and use effectively. This integration ensures that your business can benefit from the latest technology without the usual headaches associated with tech adoption.

Industry-Specific Innovation

FunkPd offers custom features designed specifically for the construction industry. From project galleries to estimation tools, we provide functionalities that streamline your operations. Our mobile-first designs ensure your site is accessible on the go, perfect for contractors and clients alike. Integration with construction-specific software and tools further enhances your website’s efficiency, making it a vital part of your business.

We know that in construction, time is money. That’s why our solutions are designed to save you both. Features like easy project galleries allow you to showcase your work to potential clients quickly. Estimation tools let customers get quotes without lengthy back-and-forth emails, and mobile-first design ensures that your site is just as accessible on a job site as it is in the office.

Consider the impact of a well-designed project gallery. Prospective clients can view your completed projects, read client testimonials, and see the quality of your work firsthand. This transparency builds trust and positions your business as a reliable and professional choice. Additionally, tools like online estimate calculators can streamline the client acquisition process, allowing potential customers to get quick and accurate quotes without waiting for a callback.

Our mobile-optimized designs ensure that your site looks and functions perfectly, whether viewed on a desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

For example, a construction business might need a website that showcases various services, from residential renovations to large-scale commercial projects. We design each section to highlight your expertise, using high-quality images, detailed descriptions, and customer testimonials to build credibility. E-commerce integration allows you to sell construction supplies or equipment directly from your site, creating a new revenue stream.
