Archway's story begins in 1986 when founder Rick Burk settled in Simi Valley, CA. Fresh out of the Navy Seabees, Rick wasted no time in getting his California contractor’s license. Originally, he started out in plumbing with a C-36 license and the purchase of A & B Plumbing. As with any saga that spans decades, it would take a brief return to Rick’s home state of Illinois where he discovered his true calling. After being introduced to working on garage doors, he realized plumbing wasn't what he wanted to do forever. Excited with the new possibilities, Rick returned to the coast, relocated to Lancaster and opened Archway Plumbing & Garage Door Service, adding a D-28 license for garage doors. While he’s always maintained the plumbing license, he has focused on garage doors ever since.
Along the way, Rick met James Meyer who was already experienced in the same field and working at a different company. The two became friends, so it was perfectly natural for Rick and James to become partners in the daily operations of Archway Garage Doors. Forming a team allowed Archway to expand its service area from Lancaster and the Antelope Valley area to cover both Santa Clarita and Simi Valleys. James’ many years of garage door industry experience brings lots of knowledge and happy customers to the growing business.
If there is one thing we know inside and out at Archway, it’s garage doors. Lancaster- and Simi Valley-based, our service area also stretches north to Oxnard and down to Calabasas.

It’s a rare soul who has anything but the best things to say about their experience with the company – from the gal in the office, to the partners and crew members who worked on their garage door project. No matter which member of the team arrives to assist you, you’ll be happy you called Archway.
