Crofton Home Improvement Centre

WordPress, Web Development, Responsive Design & CMS

We are delighted Crofton Home Improvement Centre chose SDM Productions as their new Website & Marketing Partner. Crofton chose SDM following a referral from an existing client.

Here at Crofton we are the experts. Having completed many thousands of installations, conservatories and orangeries. We feel that on experience alone no other local company can advise better.

Crofton is a family business that was originally established in 1979. David and Valerie Nahid had their first site at the rear of Hammonds Garden Centre, they then moved to Stubbington Lane in 1987. They retired from the business in 1997 and their Son Steve took the reins. In 2014 He purchased our brand new Fareham site in the heart of West Street.

We have specialised in offering our clients the complete package. Not only can we design any style of conservatory or orangery in PVCu and hardwood using the latest computer design software; we can also offer flooring, furniture and fittings to compliment the installation.

The design

Project details

WordPress CMS

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. We chose the WordPress Platform as the easiest and simplest Content Management System.

Responsive Website Design

Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a Web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries

Hand Coded

The Website was hand coded using HTML 5 markup with CSS3 with graceful degradation for older browsers. Our designers are highly skilled and utilise modern design techniques and approaches when coding to the latest practices.

Google Maps Integration

Zoomable maps focused on an address or post code. Maps can be searched by business category. Also provides driving directions.

News & Blog Feed

he website was built with an integrated blog to allow the company to post out news feeds and latest news. The idea of the blog is to create an informative communication platform between Crofton and its customers.

Bespoke Design

We worked very hard to ensure the design of the website was unique to anything else out their in the market place. We also had to ensure the design was user-friendly with the functionality in place to enhance the user experience.
