are appearing in text form across the top and bottom of your pages, so you need to put that right. The homepage text contains typos, and there are grammatical errors. There's also some needless repetition, and apparent contradiction - you say:-

"Drive On Surfacing has been established for a number of years"

and later:- "We are a family run business with generations of experience...."

There's a big difference between a number of years and many generations.

I've taken the liberty of very quickly editing the text, and for what it's worth here's a rough idea of what I would suggest:-

"Welcome to the Drive On Surfacing web site, your one-stop-shop for

• Brick, block, and crazy paving.
• Patios, driveways, tarmac surfacing
• Groundwork services
• Landscaping
• Fencing
• Turf-laying.

For more information, call us on: - 0208 440 5225, or complete our enquiry form."

Your site is a little light on content, and I suggest that you try to include some more images of completed projects - people buy with their eyes. Perhaps you could include some close-up images of the various types of paving too.

I notice from your address that you're only a couple of miles from me, so if I'm ever in the market for a new driveway etc., I may give you a call.

FE is right: you need examples of your work on the site. I'd want to see those, and samples of the paving designs available, before I would make contact.

With the type of groundwork that you are advertising, it sometimes pays to give actual example photographs of your work you have undertaken. If the designs on the website, are your own, why not state this, as the customer will then have something to work on.

Reference to trade organizations or standards specifications could also help.
