Our Story Begins With One Goal – Meeting Each Customer’s Needs
Since 1998, husband and wife team, Jim and Jennifer Willis have been supplying Santa Barbara County with “the highest quality” overhead doors – both commercial and residential – according to Jim, who is Santa Barbara Overhead Door’s president and 42-year-old CEO. Proudly pointing out the recent incorporation of rolling shutter operating systems into the “diversification of talents” within the company, Willis, a soon to be father of three, says it is evident that the business is doing something right.
“We have 177 years worth of experience in the company,” remarked Willis.” We have a great history and a track record.”
Accounting for such a noteworthy record is the extremely friendly and competent staff. For Willis, the sense of camaraderie is not only a key for a successful workforce, but also its stellar reputation, which is evidently keen within the community.
Owning to their reputation for quality workmanship and equipment is due, in part, to the staff of seven professionally trained installers who will measure the opening of the space to be fitted, on-site, to ensure precise dimensions are made.” That’s our goal”, said Willis, “a perfect and exact fit.”
The company’s showroom and design center, a fully functioning space (just a block away from the Do It Center and Hayward Lumber) is set off by an array of garage doors in various styles and dimensions, offers further evidence that at Santa Barbara Overhead Door, customer service is a pleasant experience offered by knowledgeable sales consultants, who, whether explaining pricing or automation, demonstrate a friendly professionalism.
Santa Barbara Overhead Door is an exclusive distributor for Raynor Garage Doors. Nowhere else in the county will you find a showroom that is eligible to carry their product. The passing of a stringent criterion affords SBOHD the ability to sell both residential garage doors and commercial overhead doors by Raynor. From swinging, folding or sliding doors, in wood or steel, and embellished with or without windows, which come in clear, opaque or even stained, SBOHD offers an impressive collection of custom doors.
In addition to the Raynor product line, we also represent Amarr, Carriage House, Wayne Dalton, Ranch House, Liftmaster, Genie, Janus, Porvene and many more manufacturers.
A walk through the cozy but comprehensive showroom is truly an eye-opening experience, where, with the push of a button, garage doors appear and disappear to display numerous styles and sizes of doors, both steel and wood. If you thought all garage doors were created equal, a visit to Santa Barbara Overhead Door will quickly change your mind. The staff aptly explains the “skeleton” of a door – from the screwed-together window insert frames to the insulation to the description of the wood. A knotty incense cedar is the given when you choose a carriage house-style wood door, for example.
The stain-grade wood of these doors shows up the grain , while the “clavos” or hammered iron studs add to the authentic, traditional look. Depending on the style and make, and excluding human negligence, all doors at VCOD come warranted, including either a three-year, five-year, or lifetime guarantee. The sky’s the limit for the color as well, which is also dependent, it must be noted, on the style of door and the material.
