QUALITY WINDOWS-SANTA BARBARA is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow-up work was excellent. After Quality Windows & Doors installed my new patio door, which is beautiful, some minor adjustments needed to be made to the latch plates on the door frame. Larry, an installation technician with the company, came to my house the very next day. He sawed down the metal plates and then polished them before re-installing them on the door frame. The finished product is excellent. Thank you Larry and everyone at Quality Windows & Doors. I couldn't be happier about the door, which is a ProVia product. Very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The installation of my new exterior door was excellent. I am extremely happy with the new patio door that Quality Windows & Doors installed at my home. Ryan, the sales representative, showed me various door styles and colors and the one we selected, by ProVia, is beautifully crafted. It's the perfect door for my patio. Greg and Iraq (sp?) did an excellent job installing the door. They know exactly what they are doing and were very attentive to details. Larry, a service technician with Quality Windows & Doors, also helped with some minor adjustments. He too did a great job. Thanks for your service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salesmen very knowledgable about current codes. I worked with Quality Windows of Santa Barbara to place an order for replacements at an historic residence in Santa Barbara. Their salesperson, Mr. Alvarez, was very helpful in (1) making sure the order meets Cal Title 24 Energy requirements, and (2) that a bedroom window meets emergency exiting requirements. He also verified my judgement about which glazing sections need to be tempered because of proximity to doorways. Jim Kautz AIA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dealer was very helpful and thorough! This was my second time using Quality Windows in SB. Johnny was extremely helpful and professional. Everything was timely and wonderful! The windows that were installed do a great job keeping the outside noise to a minimum and help with regulating the temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service. The Milgard window is beautiful. The installation was completed on time and was done very professionally. The stucco work around the window was done so well that one can hardly tell where the old stucco leaves off and the new begins. Quality Windows had already installed two other replacement windows in my old 1926-vintage house, so I was familiar with their work and am a repeat customer. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The teamwork at this dealer is the key to satisfied customers I went to visit the shop and two people showed me the products and answered questions. I scheduled a quote appointment and a window expert came to my house and completed measurements quickly and professionally. All of the installation information and costs were sent to me by email and I was able to schedule the work within a few days. In each step, I was glad that calling the office or using email, the staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Three people came to install the windows and completed their work ahead of schedule with time for me to inspect their work. Everything was done correctly and according to the original quote. This result was achieved because they work as a team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Windows & Doors did an excellent job every step of the way! We are glad we decided to go with Quality Windows and Doors. The experience was pleasant every step of the way. We had a good experience with Quality Windows and Doors from the way our initial call was handled and our initial visit to the shop, subsequent visits, through the installation itself, as well as follow up calls. The store staff is pleasant to work with and knowledgeable about window options. The installers were also professional. The work was done on time and done well. Most important of all, we enjoy our new windows! Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Windows is the way to go! I felt completely confident when I began my journey with Quality Windows. From the man who scheduled my consultation to the installation crew that came out. It has been nothing but a breeze. I couldn't be any happier with my new windows. Right off the back the difference in temperature and how my house looked completely flipped my house around for the better. Quality Windows was able to answer all my questions and make me feel really comfortable with my decision. I recommend Quality Windows as the first to go to when it comes to new window replacement.
