Your Total One-Stop-Shop Chicagoland Remodeling Solution
HX Home Solutions (formerly Hackers Exteriors) was founded by Larry Hacker in the year 1950 as a local aluminum storm doors and windows installer. 70 years and 2 generations later, HX has continued to adapt to market demands and expanded service offerings to become a premier, local one-stop-shop home remodeling company. What remains the same is the company’s standards of excellence. Our primary focus continues to be customer satisfaction and high quality of workmanship. HX takes your needs as seriously as you do. From the smallest project to a complete renovation - we treat every job and customer with the same professionalism, dedication, and respect. We utilize the best materials from manufacturers we have carefully selected and tested for decades, for most of which we are approved contractors. Why is that important to you? Our experience with their product and our long standing relationship with them can translate to a more efficient and smooth experience for you. North Star Stone creates beautiful stone fireplaces and exteriors using our custom fabricated thin stone. We offer design ideas, custom coloring, and expert installation. Shipping is also available for clients that have their own masons or live outside the Chicago Area. We also replace Dryvit with our stone and stucco which can help increase the value of the house. Our stone can also be used on interior walls, basements, wine cellars and outdoor features such as fire pits and outdoor kitchens. From your initial contact and appointment with us, to our courteous and well-managed onsite installation crews, through the completion of your renovation and long afterwards, we strive to provide unrivaled customer service. We guarantee our workmanship and your satisfaction long after we complete your project. In fact, nearly 90% of our business comes from former customers or their referrals. This has helped us earn complaint-free accreditation and the highest A+ rating from the better business bureau.
