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.

Libertyville may be one of the most well-known Chicago suburbs overall, and with that level of recognition comes a certain level of property value. When people buy homes in Libertyville they aren’t just looking for an average place to live, they are looking to buy a home in one of the area’s most iconic suburbs, which means making a relatively substantial investment. Local residents take pride in their homes, which means keeping the exterior in good condition as well as giving the home substantial curb appeal.
One of the easiest ways to meet both of these goals is to partner with an experienced, local contractor like All Star Products.

James Hardie siding is one of the most impressive substances currently being used for home siding materials, and its unique properties of it make it ideal for homes in the Chicagoland area, like Libertyville. One of the things to make sure of, however, is that you are using a certified James Hardie installer.
If your installation ever needs to have warranty work performed on it, having it installed by someone that isn’t Hardie-certified can lead to having the warranty coverage voided. Another reason to make sure you use a qualified installer like All Star is so that the siding is installed correctly, in general. Your siding is what helps to keep water from penetrating the inside of your structure, so it only makes sense to make sure it’s installed right.
Countless homeowners forget about the potentially massive impact that windows have on not only the appearance of a home but also on the home’s energy efficiency. Windows are the liminal points in the home where the inside of the home and the exterior elements have the chance to meet, which means they need to be highly effective at not only sealing against moisture but sealing against air transfer as well.
If your home could potentially benefit from upgraded windows, All Star is able to get windows made for any potential application. There are materials options that include vinyl, fiberglass, and even wooden frames, and there is a wide range of style options to choose from as well. Cut energy costs and boost curb appeal with a professional window installation.
Another component of the exterior that many homeowners overlook is the entry door. This is another crucial spot where the home is potentially exposed to external conditions, including rain, snow, ice, and wind, and it needs to be installed properly. The installation is important not only for the functionality of the door but for the safety of the overall structure.
All Star is one of the leading replacement door installers in the Libertyville area. We offer an incredibly wide range of options for homeowners to find exactly what they need for their entryway project. There are options that range from simpler, entry-level doors, and there are far more complex, detailed, and even custom entry doors. Once the door tier is decided, there are multiple styles to choose from, including:
Additionally, we have a simple process for ordering and installing your new door. We’ll come out to your home to measure, and while we’re there we’ll get the details of the door like style, color, and so on. Once it’s ready, we’ll come on the scheduled install date to take care of the project.
