“We are so grateful that IB Roof Systems and Antis Roofing came to the rescue when we really needed it,” said Pam Estes, CEO for the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach.  “Given the pandemic, 2020 was an emotionally and financially challenging year. As we approached the fall holidays, our insurance carrier required a new roof for our main clubhouse to be able to obtain full coverage, which came with an unanticipated $100,000 price tag.”

Orange County-based Antis Roofing & Waterproofing and Texas-based IB Roof Systems came together to ensure The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach (BGCLB) would get a new roof that would help the organization provide a safe haven for generations of young people.  

The main clubhouse for BGCLB is located in a picturesque canyon that suffered a devastating fire years ago. “We are delighted and grateful that IB Roof Systems donated their state of the industry materials and upgraded us to a PVC membrane which features superior flame retardant properties,” said Estes. “I can sleep well at night knowing our clubhouse is safer than it ever has been.”

The relationship with IB Roof Systems was made possible thanks to local entrepreneur and industry advocate Charles Antis of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing. Antis has helped numerous non-profits with their roofing needs including Habit for Humanity and the Ronald McDonald House. As the CEO for Antis Roofing & Waterproofing, he explains, ““When the organization contacted me about the club’s hardship, I immediately called IB Roof Systems because I know they feel like me when it comes to giving and keeping kids and families safe. Knowing The Club is getting the same top warranted PVC roofing system we install in our communities up and down the coast, makes me happy!”

“It is reassuring to know there are so many caring people who are stepping up during times of adversity,” said Estes. “We also extend a heartfelt thank you to John Schwartz of the David Schwartz Foundation for their extremely generous gift and for the help of local donors who underwrote labor costs involved in building the roof.”

Antis Roofing & Waterproofing is a gold-level Leaders Circle partner of the Greater Irvine Chamber.
