Epoxy Grout Pro is an Australian company offering professional grouting services to people across Sydney, Newcastle, the Central Coast and the Blue Mountains. With over twenty-six years’ of experience, they specialise in bathroom and balcony resealing.
When Trent from Epoxy Grout Pro approached me to help with their website, it looked great but it was loading way too slowly. Their load time was around 20 seconds, which, if you’ve been paying attention to the rest of my website, you’ll know is much, much too slow. So, Trent engaged me to improve their website’s load time. And, in doing so, improve their search engine ranking and help ensure that visitors stick around to find out more and hopefully turn into customers.
The first thing I did was run an analysis to determine the speed of the Epoxy Grout Pro website. Then, I did some investigating to uncover the underlying reasons the site was loading so slowly. I discovered that the server connection was a big part of the problem. Fortunately, there were a few things I could do to manipulate the server connection and increase Epoxy Grout Pro’s website load time.
From here, I also employed a number of other speed optimisation techniques to improve the load time, including:
- Leveraging browser caching
- Optimising images
- Minifying both CSS and JS
- Adding expire headers
After all of this, the Epoxy Grout Pro website loaded in just a fraction of its original speed.
