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.

The siding on your home is a great way to show your personality in your home’s exterior, but it’s also there to protect your home from the elements and pests that can do damage to your home, such as bugs and rodents. When it’s time to update the look of your home, it’s best to pick a siding material that has a nice appearance and that will last for years to come. With James Hardie fiber cement siding, you know your home will be protected. This extremely durable material can stand up to the weather that Northbrook residents experience, such as high winds, hail storms, ice, snow, and extreme temperatures.
The catch when it comes to using James Hardie siding is that it can only be installed by a professional that is Hardie-certified. Not only do these highly trained installers need to be the ones to handle the job so the installation is done correctly, but installation by the Hardie-certified experts ensures warranty work will be able to be completed without issue. Homeowners that use non-certified installers are responsible for paying to have the siding fixed.
Not only can freshly replaced windows make a huge difference in the look of your home, but they can also improve your home’s energy efficiency without having to do any major construction. Window installation should always be handled by a local company that handles window replacement so you know they’re put in correctly.
All Star Products offers many different styles of windows, with multiple materials to choose from, including wood and vinyl. Some of our popular styles of windows include:
The front door of your home is the place where you and your friends and family enter your home. As the main access point to your home, it’s important that your entry door provides plenty of protection from the outside world, but it also can be a major design focal point. It’s also an important part of keeping the weather and elements out of your home, since it is used frequently but needs to maintain weatherproof and draft-proof operation.
Using an experienced local door installation contractor means that your door will be installed correctly, and seamlessly integrated with the frame of your home. Additionally, you can rest assured that the seal of the door will be checked as well, to ensure draft-free performance for years to come.
