My name is Dave Donofrio and I loved my career at James Hardie. For 20 years I had a front row seat watching the country fall in love with their homes. Since the inception of HGTV and the DIY Network, homes have transformed from a place of protection to a place of expression. I truly believe home is an extension of us and who we are, and I have been so fortunate to have spent my entire career in the home improvement industry, helping families express their personalities.
When I started with James Hardie in 2003 the outside of the home was an afterthought, siding was something to stop the elements, to keep you safe and protected. I’ve spent the last twenty years in a senior executive role with James Hardie developing products, working with designers and builders, working & training thousands of contractors & remodelers and helping build and deliver products homeowners were proud and excited to use on their homes.

The exterior of your home has become my passion. I fell in love training some of the nation’s best remodeling companies and their customers, helping the exterior remodeling industry deliver stunning, best-in-class transformation’s and delivering mind-blowing results for homeowners across the nation. Contributing and participating in those experiences have been the most rewarding memories of my career.
While I’ve helped many homeowners achieve their remodeling dreams, I‘ve seen ten times as many remodeling nightmares and bad installation jobs that have created stress and loss. Products like James Hardie are awesome, but only as good as the siding contractor that installs it. I’ve seen that homeowner frustration first-hand and the heartache caused by fly-by-night contractors – especially here in Chicagoland.
I saw an opportunity, an opportunity to bring exceptional customer experience to Chicago area homeowners. In October of last year, we partnered with All Star Products a company celebrating 35 years of exceptional customer service right here in Chicago. Our vision is to deliver Chicagoland’s premier experience for siding and window transformations. We love what we do & obsess over your experience.

Quite possibly one of the least-known Chicago suburbs, Deerfield is definitely a hidden gem in many respects. The people who live in Deerfield take a lot of pride in their homes, and as a result, the property values for Deerfield are considerably higher than in many nearby areas. This also means that when new individuals and families move into Deerfield, they often aren’t coming simply because it’s a nice place to live and raise a family, it’s also a relatively sound investment in beautiful real estate properties. One of the reasons for this is that Deerfield homeowners take no small amount of pride in their homes.
This means keeping the homes in good repair, and ensuring they are well-protected from hazards and the elements, things you would do for any considerable investment. The easiest way for Deerfield homeowners to do this is to partner with a trusted local company like All Star to help quickly, properly, and professionally accomplish various exterior upgrades. All Star has been providing Deerfield residents with the best quality and service for several decades, here’s more about what we offer and how it can benefit your home.
For over 35 years, All Star has been providing Deerfield residents and families with leading exterior remodeling solutions, covering everything from windows to doors, to the siding. While providing these solutions we also strive to create absolutely peerless customer support, service, and experiences. All Star was initially founded because the owner was tired of watching local friends and family members get taken advantage of by contractors with no local ties, who could simply take the money and run.
Eventually, this led to All Star Products being formed, and the residents of Deerfield suddenly had another option for their remodeling projects. All Star is driven to provide the level of care and service that Deerfield residents deserve, no matter how big or small the job is. Each job we accept is one that we will complete with the same care and attention that we would give when servicing a family member.
We try to operate differently from most other contractors, which means there are some things that we provide that homeowners may not be used to. When we provide an estimate, it’s detailed and concise, and it doesn’t leave any room for ambiguity. When we schedule an installation, we’ll be there when we say we will, weather permitting.
One of the hottest materials in home siding right now is fiber cement, and one of the leading brands of fiber cement siding is James Hardie. James Hardie siding is one of the best materials for homes in the Deerfield and greater Chicagoland region because it has nearly unmatched durability. It can handle our seasonal heat and cold, as well as all of our rain and wind, and when the occasional hail storm rolls through it can shake off impacts from 2” diameter hailstones.
The biggest caveat with James Hardie is that homeowners need to make sure that they are using a certified James Hardie contractor so that they know the siding is installed properly and to ensure warranty coverage. If the siding is installed by someone without Hardie certification, not only is it likely to be installed below common standards, but it won’t be eligible for the James Hardie warranty coverage, which is considerable.
Homeowners that are looking for a quick and easy way to give their home’s exterior a refresh while also saving money year-round should consider upgrading their home’s windows. Upgrading the windows, even just a few of the worst ones can make a dramatic difference to the interior of the home, particularly during times of the year with extreme temperatures, when the heat or AC is fighting the hardest to keep the elements at bay.
When getting new windows installed, using a reputable window installation company can prevent other headaches down the road. By using a trusted local resource like All Star, you can be assured that your windows won’t show signs of leaking after the first hard rain.
Another simple upgrade for Deerfield homeowners looking to refresh their home’s appearance is the entry door. Not only does it have the responsibility of keeping the elements out despite constant use, but from the outside, it is often one of the first visual focal points that guests or even prospective buyers are likely to notice.
Working with a local door installation contractor to have a new entry door installed can give your home’s exterior a considerable upgrade, while also improving energy efficiency in the entryway. When you reach out to schedule your initial consultation and measurement, your consulting expert will also go over your material, color, and design style options.
