The job was a complex web app, including transactional and social design elements. Chris did a fantastic job; he was patient, responsive and quick. He also delivered excellent design work and we were super pleased with the entire process. I have never worked with him before, and I was pleasantly surprised at how professional and talented he is.

Requirements

Client has had a site for over a year now which was performing greate, however the design was becoming somewhat out dated. This site is located at http://www.ottawageneralcontractors.com

To redesign the site, client insisted on copied most of the layout from http://www.klondikecontracting.com/ (he really likes the look of this site)
The design that came out of that process was not really professional, lacked many details and did a very poor job at converting visitors to clients. You can visit this at http://ogc003.test.webious.ca/

As a result, we are looking to redesign the site again as detailed below, the main change is addition of a form as a permanent fixture on every page, removal of the call to action button on the right edge of the screen. But I would also like to have the design refined, specially the spacing, font sizes, etc. while keeping the overall look and feel (the color red!)

Please follow the provided wireframe closely and checkout the other sites mentioned here. Note how the estimate form begins above the banner and ends after the banner.

The design should be flexible enough to be used for landing pages with minor modifications.

The attached PDF file provides further details on the requirements. The design should provide sample of various header styles, link styles, bullet styles, and a listing style.
