Leka Roofs manufacture a solid conservatory roof replacement system. It is a great way to convert your conservatory into a much more useable, and more energy efficient space. Traditional glass roof conservatories are renowned for being too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.

The Leka South-East England distributors and installers had had their own site built by another agency. They were no longer in contact with the agency so requested that we make some updates to their WordPress site. Which we did.

A Website Rebuild

Now, there’s more than one way to cook an egg. And the same applies to the building of websites. There’s many, many different ways to build a website and achieve a similar result, aesthetically at least. But what goes on in the background to make the website work is crucially important to its success.

One of the problems with the website was that it was very slow. And with one look at the WordPress dashboard, it was very easy to see why. The client was happy with the look and feel of the site and the content, but wanted better performance. What was needed was some technical SEO.

Sometimes though, it’s easier to just start again, rather than spend a long time fixing something that is beyond repair. So that’s what we suggested. We rebuilt the site from scratch using our trusted theme and plugins that we know to be quick and efficient.

Fast Web Hosting

The importance of web hosting is often overlooked when it comes to building websites. Which is why we spent a lot of time researching the best hosting solution. Our hosting provider has very fast servers that are designed to work well with WordPress websites. Their hosting comes with lots of built-in SEO and security features and they offer excellent support.

The Result

We ran a Mobile Google Lighthouse report on the old site and the new site. The performance scored shifted from 63/100 to 91/100 – a clear measured improvement. It is likely that this score will increase once we undertake further SEO on the site. To date, we have only carried out technical SEO on the site. But we are scheduled to be carrying out on-page and off-page SEO later this year.

Another clear difference is the amount of plugins that wereused to build the sites. The old site was using over 20 plugins to make it work, adding lots of unnecessary code to the pages. Having this many plugins for such a simple site also increases the chances of conflicts. Our new site uses just 7 plugins and our monthly updates and site health checks are now very straightforward.
