Philanthropy at the heart of this Southern California roofing company
Charles Antis, founded Antis Roofing and Waterproofing in 1989 and this year the Southern California company was awarded the Association for Corporate Growth’s Corporate Responsibility Award. I visited Charles at his Irvine headquarters to encounter the Antis philosophy of giving back to the community while ensuring employees love their work and rate their job the best in their careers.
With 80 employees (25 in the office), Antis Roofing & Waterproofing is involved in roofing maintenance and repair, re-roofing, leak detection and waterproofing, decking system installation and maintenance and dry rot replacement of fascia and wood trim. Its geographic reach is Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties where it works with more than 1000 multi-tenant housing communities and homeowner associations (HOAs). The city of Irvine is noted for its highly regulated residential neighborhoods. Interestingly new community developments are not in the Antis mix – “I haven’t been on that bandwagon with so much regulation involved” – says company founder Charles.
