How To Build A Great Construction Website With WordPress

The list above should hopefully provide plenty of inspiration for the design of your construction company website.

That said, there is more to launching your site than simply picking a theme. Here’s a quick guided tour of the complete process:

Step 1: Grab Your Domain Name And Hosting

Creating a website starts with purchasing a domain name that represents your construction company and finding a suitable hosting package.

At DreamHost, we make it easy to find your ideal domain. We also offer specialized hosting that is optimized for WordPress websites. We can even manage your site if you’d like.

If you prefer to use a regular hosting account, you can use our one-click installer to set up WordPress in minutes.

Step 2: Choose And Install Your Construction WordPress Template

The list above covers only a fraction of the available themes for your WordPress website. You can find many more in the official WordPress theme directory, and on sites like ThemeForest. We even wrote a guide to choosing the right theme for your website.

To install your chosen theme, go to your WordPress dashboard, select Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme, then browse for your theme’s .zip file.

After installing and activating the theme, you can customize it. Go to Appearance > Customize and you can tweak various elements like color scheme, fonts, logo, and more.

Step 3: Add Some Plugins

Plugins extend the functionality of your WordPress website. Here are some examples that are likely to be useful for construction firms:

  • Portfolio and Projects — Showcase your previous work in a neatly ordered grid
  • wpForms — Add a contact form so potential clients can reach you directly via your website (you will find this plugin in your DreamHost Panel)
  • Yoast SEO — This plugin can help you appear higher up the search results on Google and Bing
  • Wordfence Security — Enhance your security so it’s harder for hackers to take down your site

To install any new plugin, go to Plugins > Add New in your dashboard, search for the plugin, click Install Now, and then Activate.

Check out our monster guide to WordPress plugins for more useful additions!

Step 4: Create Key Pages

Every construction website needs certain pages, like About Us, Services, Projects, and Contact. You might also consider adding a Portfolio page, and a News section.

To create a new page, enter your admin area and navigate to Pages > Add New. Give your new page a title, and then add some relevant content.

Step 5: Set Up Your Website’s Navigation

Lastly, make sure to set up a main menu to ensure visitors can easily navigate your website.

Go to Appearance > Menus, create a new menu, add your pages, and assign the menu to a location (usually the header).
