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.

Glencoe is one of the most idyllic places in the greater Chicagoland area to live, and residents of the town take a lot of pride in their homes. When individuals and families move into Glencoe they aren’t just finding a new place to live in a pleasant corner of the Chicago metro area, they are making a significant investment into a real estate property in a highly desirable location. Keeping these homes beautiful and with increasing value is important, and it can be easy.
By partnering with a local window, door, and siding contractor that has the experience and a long history of service in the area, homeowners can be assured they are working with a leader in exterior remodeling.

We’re going to take a closer look at the services and products that All Star Products can provide and which will keep your home looking beautiful while remaining well-protected.
All Star Products is known in the Glencoe area for being one of the local leaders in hassle-free remodeling and customer satisfaction. The owners and founders are local residents themselves and were tired of watching area residents as well as their friends and family being taken advantage of by unprofessional and sometimes even unqualified and unlicensed contractors. These fly-by-night operations would set high expectations for homeowners but would never deliver, leaving them frustrated and financially depleted.
Glencoe homeowners deserve a contractor that is based nearby and employs people that live in the area. They are driven to provide service and professionalism on levels rarely seen in this industry, no matter how large or small the project is. Whether we’re installing a single door or window on a small bungalow, or installing siding and windows on a 6,000-square-foot home, each project gets the attention and quality that we want our own families to receive.
Our partners can count on getting detailed estimates with transparency in pricing. We set reasonable expectations with our homeowner partners regarding when the project will be finished, and what to expect from the process itself on installation day. The exterior of your home is important, and it needs to look good while also protecting your home, which is why we’re uniquely qualified to help you meet those needs.
Homeowners that are considering having the leader in fiber cement, James Hardie siding, installed on their home should make certain that their installer is James Hardie certified. There are several reasons having a James Hardie-certified installer like All Star is ideal.
