It looks pretty neat shogun. Except for the popup hover message for requesting a quote which seem to have no option to close out. It seem to be stuck on top blocking the text behind. The hover effects and the theme is good as well.

Looks very neat and well organized. The color scheme is also very good. Good luck with it.

 

I can't seem to see the problems Digital_Veil is running into the contact box is smooth and all the pop ups I could close them with the button on the bottom right side.

 

about the pop up window im in chrome on mac os i just notice the same close button on another side / image i clicked so it may vary.

My suggestion, the font color on the light blue background should be darker.

You need to keep in mind that there may be people with visual impairment or older folks whose eyesight is not as good as it used to be who will be looking at your website. Darker font color will be much easier for them to read.

I also have the popup quote problem that I can't delete (I'm on a Mac)

 

Your title will likely cause you to be instanly blackballed by search engines with the repetiton of "crosshaven" multiple times. You only need to mention it once. Also too many words water down your most important keywords so only use your most important words and limit the title to about 5-6 words. Get more specific re other keywords on inside pages.

 

You also have Crosshaven spammed in your text. Another black mark against you. You don't even need to use crosshaven anywhere on your website because it's in your domain name.

 

Read up on Google's Panda algorithm as that is the bear that will get you.

 

If you haven't gained any links/traffic the spam mentioned above may be the reason. You'll really need to stick to Google's rules from now on as you have broken several right out of the gate and likely lost Google's trust already. Read up Google's Webmaster Guidelines.

The below is from a 1996-8 html file, of my web site long long ago.
The below benefited search engine spider-bots of long ago, are they still around?
Would short title; meta name, meta description, meta name keywords contents
still work for web sites today?
SHORT titles -  'cause long titles roll off to the right, and many do not like such
in their bookmarks.

My FF 33 renders your web site very well -- after the initial "confusion" [probably my FF & alligators, not you].  The posters above gave great advice!  Remember, if yoyu desire to expand your market, Crosshaven less, national-more [you have to consult a web site marketing person, I'm not one of them].  I do know how to get htmls listed on search engines, at least way back in 1996-8.  Once, I had "mirror portals" for most of the NASA space centers.  I was listed in a few search engines right above NASA's speace center URLs.  Since then, NASA has done wonders with its web sites -- that collection is one of the best anywhere.
