I am Richard The Door Guy and I have been providing top quality door installations at affordable prices since 1988. I have been serving San Luis Obispo County, California since 1999, doing both commercial and residential work.

I install all types of entry, french and interior doors prehung or fitting doors to existing openings.
These doors can be made of fiberglass, wood or steel, vinyl or a combination of materials.

I have the skills and experience to help you plan an entire door project from beginning to end and supply all doors and hardware OR I happily install doors and locks that you may have found online or at a local supplier.

I do door repairs, service and adjustments and have solved many nagging water intrusion problems using quality specialized weatherstripping products carefully installed. I can make stuck wood windows work again or replace them with new ones built in the same style.

My favorite projects are one of a kind entry systems. These are custom doors, often with sidelites or transoms, that have been designed and built to compliment an architectural style.
I enjoy adapting antique doors and hardware to new settings to create interesting architectural designs.

With over 35 years experience, I do all of the work myself and try to answer the phone even if I am in the middle of a job! Please call or email me if you have door questions or concerns.

Richard C, "the Door Guy", Paso Robles, 805-773-1175, was called to repair a broken door manufactured by Bede Windows and Doors of Oceanside, CA. The door has precise German technology, possessing 3 hinges and 4 locking mechanisms, weighing 160 pounds, truly a remarkable product, but creating a challenge to repair. The Door Guy worked with Bede tech support and successfully repaired a broken hinge and one of the locking mechanisms. I am always impressed with a positive outcomes. Richard's performance deserves the 5 stars.

Richard (the Door Guy) is wonderful. He installed doors on my old house 14 years ago, and they still look perfect, are watertight, and close perfectly. This time, I needed to replace a door on my new house. Another contractor told me I would need to replace the door frame and stucco and it would cost thousands of dollars. Richard figured out the right door, and simply replaced it. As others have said, he is very experienced, does a great job, and cleans up completely. I have complete confidence that this door will be perfect for many years to come, too.

Richard worked on 5 of our doors and did a great job fixing issues where we had leaks from heavy rains, sticking and squeaks. He did what he said he would do when he said he would do it and cleaned up well. He is very meticulous and analytical when determining causes of problems and won't stop until he gets it right.

Customer Testimonials

Richard the Door Guy was recommended to us by family and he responded promptly, discussing our new entry door project by phone, followed by a visit when he took precise measurements and answered all questions in detail. He picked up the new door for us. Then we we discovered the lock we purchased added complications to his installation so he took time before the installation day to work out the lock's exacting requirements. The installation went smoothly even with our added challenge. Our new door fits handsomely due to his efforts. Lock set and trim were precisely fitted after checking with us as to handle placements. Richard was a pleasure to work with from the first call to the finished door and his fee . His fee was very reasonable. We, too, highly recommend him.


I found Richard on the internet and asked for an estimate on replacing 2 entry doors in my home. He showed up and listened to my wishes and had some suggestions of manufacturers and paints and Hardware. We came to an agreement that I should order the doors and have them shipped to my home and he would install and provide materials for installation. We are more then pleased with a professional job that had presented and overcome several obstacles which Richard handled with care and professional finish. He is definitely my man to go to for any doors that need to be modified or installed. I would not hesitate to recommend him for all door jobs.
Many Thanks.


Richard did amazing work. I went into the door shopping process with no expectations. I stopped at the box stores, looked at pre-hung doors, thought of doing it myself -- perhaps even making my own door. After we talked with Richard he grounded us in the reality of the situation and made some suggestions as to door type due to exposure, etc. that we had not taken into account. Furthermore, he took his time when he came to do the estimate. It was clear that he likes what he does.

At the end of the day, you might be able to find cheaper installers, but I think you would be hard pressed to find someone who actually cared as much as Richard, and who clearly takes great pride in his work. He doesn't sell extras, he doesn't press or pressure, he just says it as it is, and then follows that with good, honest work.
