What is your WHY? Insights from Charles Antis and Karen Inman of Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, on Critical Mass Radio Show

Jul 21, 2017

Charles-Antis-Karen-Inman.jpg

Given the 2017 first place in Community Involvement Award at the international Roofing Expo, Antis Roofing and Waterproofing is helping the community through their reliable services. Not only do they provide services but they also serve as leaders in the Orange County community by working with organizations such as Habitat OC and the Ronald McDonald House BOD. This week, Charles Antis and Karen Inman joined us on Critical Mass to talk more about Antis, how they are working to give back to the community, and why they value it.

Here are three takeaways from our time with Charles and Karen on Critical Mass Radio Show:

1. Have a “why” in your business. Building an attractive brand is about much more than building profit: it is also about finding purpose. Having a “why” behind the work your company does will draw people in, on both the consumer and employee side. Regardless of what your specific “why” is, the willingness to be direct and transparent about your philosophy makes it so much easier to answer questions, because your why dictates everything you do and say. It may take time to explore and understand the context of your firm’s “why,” but it will make all the difference in how your organization operates. With a recent declining rate in employee retention, you have to have a “why” to survive. Let purpose drive your firm, and say yes to doing more and doing better.

2. Get to the core of what drives YOU. Not only is it important to have a core philosophy as a company, it is also incredibly beneficial to have one as an individual, that reflects how you make decisions and see the world, both professionally and personally. As you brainstorm craft your core philosophy, think of it like a personal mission statement. Developing this not only serves to articulate who you are and how you operate; it also builds culture within your organization and helps guide the organization as a whole.

3. In order to grow, give more. Err on the side of generosity with all of your stakeholders, and always do the right thing. Give what you can, whether it be monetary or time, and don’t cheat anybody. Don’t forget to give to your team/employees first and foremost, as, when listened to, they will reciprocate and give back to your company tenfold. When you give, you grow…and then, once you grow, you are able to give even more because you have the resources to do so. Lead from a place of abundance, and you will attract abundance.

Accomplished Professionals Join The Antis Team!

Jun 02, 2017

Antis Roofing and Waterproofing is excited to announce the appointments of Mr. Ruben Salas as Senior Estimator and Ms. Rita Torres as the Los Angeles Region Sales Account Executive. Ruben and Rita, welcome to the Antis family!

Roofing runs in the family of our new Senior Estimator, Ruben Salas. He started out working with his uncle Joe’s roofing company together with his brothers and cousin. Born and raised in East Los Angeles, his roofing career began in 1986 during his high school years. Recently, Antis Senior Field Operations Manager, Narciso Alarcon reached out to Ruben about joining the team.

“After speaking with Narciso Alarcon, Karen Inman (President & COO) and Aaron Antis (Director of Sales), what appealed to me most is how Antis respects their employees and encourages their employees to share their ideas.”
Ruben Salas, Senior Estimator

Ruben brings over 30 years of experience in roofing so his guidance and support is priceless. Antis truly appreciates people like Ruben who align with our company’s vision and are willing to share their years of roofing experience with newer employees developing in their careers. Ruben said, “By nature, I’m a giving person so I respect and appreciate working for a company like Antis."

Ruben loves the ocean, and in the future he hopes to travel around the world snorkeling in tropical waters.

Rita Torres also comes to Antis with considerable experience in the construction industry. Her early career was in glass and plastering, and in 2006 she began working in roofing. We brought Rita Torres in to focus on the Los Angeles region as the lead Sales Account Executive. She will be integral to ensuring our clients receive the best quality of service in our emerging Los Angeles region.

Rita and Ruben had previously worked together - and Ruben recommended Rita for this new role on the Antis team!

“About 9 1/2 years ago I met Ruben on a property, and I had to get up on a roof for the first time in my life. Thank God it was Comp shingle and a 4:12 pitch. Coming down the ladder, I almost fell backward. It was pretty scary. We went out and celebrated the fact that I didn’t break my neck! Ruben also used to come up behind me and spray the air can duster at me. Every time it would make me jump, and I would laugh so hard. He got the biggest kick out of it. Just thinking about it makes me crack up.”
Rita Torres, Los Angeles Region Sales Account Executive

Antis seeks to hire energetic, fun and talented people who bring unique skills and experiences but also embrace our purpose as a company. “It was an article I read in March on Antis in the local newspaper - the Orange County Register - that got me interested in the company.” The article, “How a mission to Thailand shaped Orange County roofer’s business, charity strategy” focuses on the Antis mission, culture and purpose strategy.

Like Ruben, Rita Torres believes in the Antis mission that every family deserves to be healthy in a safe, dry home. Rita said, “It’s amazing to see the energy being put forth to not only do what is right, but also, invite, excite and give opportunities to those we associate with.

On a personal note, Rita Torres is working on a screenplay about her father’s life, and visiting family in Germany is on her bucket list.

“As a growing company, Antis is lucky to have both Ruben and Rita join our team! Not only do they bring years of experience in roofing industry but they also bring a sense of integrity and commitment to providing the highest quality services to our clients. They both have a way of making others feel comfortable and it feels like they’ve been a part of is for a long time. Of course, a quirky sense of humor helps when it comes to Antis!”

Karen Inman, President and COO

Antis Roofing & Waterproofing Hires Two New Team Members

IRVINE, CALIF. (May 4, 2017)Antis Roofing and Waterproofing today announced two new additions to its growing family, Ernie Basulto, director of human resources and Susan DeGrassi, director of cause. Basulto and Degrassi fully embody Antis’ belief that every family deserves to be happy and healthy in a safe, dry home. They are advocates of the company’s social mission, and want to use their talents to drive the vision forward.

Antis has found in Basulto someone to both drive the company forward and bring pride to its acts of community service. Basulto hopes to create an environment that supports the ongoing needs of the company’s Hispanic workforce and showcase Antis’ potential in the American roofing industry. With a career spanning over 25 years, Antis has entrusted Basulto to use his knowledge and experience to strengthen the company’s leadership team, support its growth and build the organization's culture.

“I heard about Antis Roofing through a former colleague. When learned about the vision, values and purpose Charles had for his organization and observed how these principles were evidenced through the company’s acts of community service, I immediately knew that in joining the team I would be a part of something bigger.”

Most recently Basulto was the senior human resources business partner at the 5th largest retail mortgage lender in the nation. He previously worked for a number of companies in human resources leadership roles and holds a Bachelor of Arts in business management from the University of Phoenix.

With social change deep-rooted in the company’s ethos, identity and culture, DeGrassi brings to the company a wealth of knowledge across both the community association and nonprofit worlds.

“I am honored and excited to become part of the Antis team and expand the company’s reach and desire to do even more good, said DeGrassi. “I hope to lead and influence Antis to be ‘that company’ that inspires other organizations to get behind a cause that will make a difference with their employees, customers and communities.”

Most recently DeGrassi was the director of development at a highly respected non-profit in Orange County dedicated to assisting homeless families. Prior to her non-profit role, she developed a twenty year track record in community association management successfully overseeing eleven regions in California, 330 associations and $50 million in revenue.

DeGrassi’s experience will allow Antis to formalize its giving and growth strategies, leveraging her skill set to address housing, homelessness, and similar community issues. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from California State University, Long Beach.

"The addition of exceptional leaders like Ernie and Susan is a key component of our growth strategy for Antis,” said Karen Inman, president and COO of Antis. “It allows us to build on our culture and serve our employees while allowing us to give back more to our community."

CEO OF ANTIS ROOFING & WATERPROOFING STEPS INTO BOARD POSITION WITH ORANGE COUNTY RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

Apr 19, 2017

Antis Inspired to Give Back by Donating Roofing Maintenance

 

IRVINE, CALIF. (April 17, 2017) – Charles Antis, founder and CEO of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing, has been appointed to serve on the board of the Orange County Ronald McDonald House (OCRMH). As a respected business owner, Antis is also a celebrated local philanthropist. He began his full term in March and will continue to partner his company with the organization as needed.


Charles Antis and team repairing roof of Orange County Ronald McDonald House.

Antis' own personal journey inspired him to pay it forward to the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. When his twins were born six weeks premature, the House provided a place of comfort during a stressful and frightening time. 

"The Ronald McDonald House helped us through a challenging time in my family's life, providing care when it was most needed," Antis said. "I'm fortunate to serve as a board member and contribute to the House's mission to provide a safe haven for families of critically ill children."

Antis visited the Orange County Ronald McDonald House for the first time in July 2016 after learning that there had been no roof maintenance in seven years. He immediately offered to donate support and seal potential leak areas. Since then, Antis Roofing has participated in numerous OCRMH events such as the Walk for Kids and Annual High Tea Fashion Show.

"The Board was impressed by Charles' commitment to the Orange County community, and his desire to support all Ronald McDonald Houses across the country," said Noel Burcelis, executive director at the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. "Charles was unanimously approved by our Board of Trustees to become our newest member in January. We consider Charles and his team to be true ambassadors."

Antis Roofing highlighted the OCRMH in their Philanthropy Suite at the Honda Center last December, allowing the organization to strengthen relationships with staff, board members and potential donors.

Founded in 1989, the Orange County Ronald McDonald House provides comfort, care and support to the families of seriously ill and injured children receiving treatment in Southern California. Last year alone, 700 families stayed in the House during a time of need, with 18,000 hours of service provided by volunteers.

Antis Roofing is deeply committed to charity and social responsibility, donating hundreds of hours of time and financial support to over 20 non-profits every year.

How a mission to Thailand shaped Orange County roofer’s business, charity strategy

Apr 03, 2017

Three stories above the entrance to the Ronald McDonald house in Orange, Charles Antis in a brown cowboy hat and yellow safety harness nimbly navigates his way across the roof to check on storm damage.

Several years of benign neglect has left the area around a ventilating system in need of repair. New wood, roofing paper and new shingles are at the ready.

If you weathered the storms, fine — maybe. But if you noticed brown ceiling stains or water dripping, you’re like thousands of homeowners who managed to get through the recession as well as the drought with little or no maintenance but are now paying the price.

“Out of sight, out of mind” attitudes have reportedly left roofers with 10 times the work of a year ago.

Like cars, says the founder and owner of Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, roofs need maintenance — clear paths for water runoff in particular.

Antis, whose company has provided every roof installation for every Habitat for Humanity home in Orange County for the last eight years, offers other tips that can save homeowners money.

Those tips in a minute. Understand, there’s much more to Antis than repairing roofs. His approach to business was born during a visit to an orphanage in Thailand and grew to maturity when he came to know a struggling family in Los Angeles.

 

Corporate social responsibility

Antis is the kind of person who sees something and ponders the larger picture.

When he went on safari in Africa five years ago with two of his five children, he was fascinated observing animals in the wild.

Likening animal behavior to humans is nothing new. Species live together in relative harmony — and then tear each other apart when food grows scarce. But Antis, who attended Brigham Young University, brought the experience home.

Raptors, even in urban areas he realized, are similar to big cats who track, capture and kill prey. Antis’ latest hobby is photographing eagles, hawks and vultures in action. His photographs on the walls of his office in Irvine evoke the call of the wild as well as the peace of the wilderness.

While serving as a missionary in Thailand as a young man, Antis met a little girl with spina bifida. He comforted her for hours and came away deeply moved about the meaning of service.

“There’s something that occurs on a mission,” says Antis, no longer Mormon, “that is magic.”

From the ground up, you might say, Antis learned the surprisingly complex world of building a roofing business. But in 1989, he had another epiphany working on a house in Los Angeles where a family of seven couldn’t afford to repair the roof.

Not only was there mold in the walls, there was mold in the mattresses. He managed to pull enough low-cost material together to fix the roof on his own.

“The more we give,” says Antis, now 54, “the more we grow.”

Today, Antis raises funds to fight arthritis-like diseases, raises funds for Alzheimer’s Orange County, is on the boards of Orange County Ronald McDonald House as well as Habitat for Humanity and a few years ago was named Habitat OC’s volunteer of the year.

As we talk, Antis mentions attending corporate breakfasts, lunches, golfing fundraisers. I turn skeptical about the value of such affairs.

But Antis explains it is at those get-togethers where meaningful corporate social responsibility is born and nurtured.

“Business people who believe in doing good are the people I hang around with.

“‘Why are you in business; why do you exist?’ is a common dialogue,” Antis reports. He explains the top issues socially responsible companies grapple with include caring for employees and ensuring a green environment.

Antis’ efforts reach as far as Mongolia, where he traveled to build Habitat for Humanity homes.

 

Roof smarts

As we climb onto the roof of the Ronald McDonald House, Narciso Alarcon, a field superintendent for Antis, introduces himself.

What this 37-year-old father of three is too modest to mention is that two weeks ago, Alarcon was named roofer of the year by the National Roofing Contractors Association.

“He’s the best of the best,” Antis says. “He’s the first one at a site and the last to leave and he’s good with people.”

Alarcon smiles at the praise — and then gets on with the job. Safety rope attached to harness, Alarcon sorts tools and materials. The goal is to leave a site not only fixed but improved.

I ask about a rash of roofing scams that hit the county a few years ago in which strangers claimed work was done when little was accomplished. Years later, unsuspecting homeowners believed — but couldn’t prove — they’d been scammed.

Antis advises going with a company with a solid track record and references, one that has photos or videos of your roof to show what was — and what wasn’t — accomplished.

Typical trouble spots on roofs include what Antis calls transitions, penetrations and terminations. In short, places such as corners, angles, chimneys, vents.

The most important thing is that there are no blockages, and that means clearing gutters. “One leaf,” Antis says, “can plug an entire drain.”

With rain Wednesday and more forecast, it’s never too late for maintenance.

Antis Community Partner of the Week: Shauna Levine of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Apr 03, 2017

Shauna Levine, Senior Campaign Manager at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), stands at the forefront of efforts to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. Beyond its focus on providing critical funds to develop advanced treatment methods to challenging illnesses, the organization, through its Light The Night campaign, serves a compassionate partner and resource to patients and their families. After learning of the Light The Night campaign and meeting with Shauna, we are determined to help this critical human fight. We have committed time and effort to the campaign, focusing on how best we can support survivors of these diseases.

Shauna welcomed the opportunity to work with us as a traditional sector company with modern approaches to corporate social responsibility. We’ve always tried to lead by example with our community efforts, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has helped us diversify our portfolio of partners.

“Antis showed me and my organization that you do not have to be a large company to make a significant difference in the lives of others.” - Shauna Levine

Shauna and the society continue to educate us on the importance of advocacy in cancer research. We realize and understand the impact blood cancer has on patients and their loved ones. As our partnership continues to blossom, we hope to have staff members and other partner organizations volunteer their time to support the campaign.

In Conversation with Shauna

 

Give us a bit of background into you, the Light the Night campaign and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting the society’s funding of research to find blood cancer cures. We bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost.

 

How did you discover Antis Roofing and Waterproofing?

I met with Antis Roofing through one of their partners, Cardinal Property Management. Charles and I connected on a deeper level at the very first meeting. His earnest commitment to leverage his business standing and company to advance the quality of life of all who come across his path was inspiring!

 

How has the company supported your organization in its endeavors?

They have donated money and time to the organization and also support survivors, who often struggle to get back on their feet after fighting these diseases. Charles and the team have also used creative solutions to help us expand our network of support. As an example, Antis donated tickets to their suite at the Honda Center for us to offer as incentives at Light The Night fundraisers. Beyond participation, we have structured a variety of cause marketing campaigns that advance both of our missions.

What role do you see Antis playing in the growth or development of your organization in the future?

The awareness they bring to our organization by talking to their clients about us is amazing. Beyond these traditional aspects of support, Antis and its team has helped me as a professional incorporate even more innovative solutions to our model and programs. They really get it.

Antis, a longtime philanthropist, was honored for his dedicated volunteer work and partnership with AOC.

“Charles’s efforts on behalf of Alzheimer’s Orange County knows no bounds,” said Jim McAleer, chief executive officer of Alzheimer’s Orange County. “He and his company have repeatedly stepped up and offered man-power, supplies and financial support when we needed it. We appreciate everything he has done, so in terms of honoring an individual that makes an impact for AOC, Charles was our natural choice.”

Antis Roofing’s Longstanding Support of Alzheimer’s Orange County

Antis Roofing and Waterproofing has participated with AOC in many ways since their initial collaboration in 2015. After the devastating loss of two grandparents to dementia in the last 10 years, Antis was motivated to partner with AOC and support their ongoing research to find a cure.

“We are proud to call ourselves a trusted ally of Alzheimer’s Orange County and look forward to continually building on our partnership,” said Antis. “This award is truly an honor for our entire company, as we all receive great fulfillment from donating our time and resources to helping this phenomenal organization - one that’s making a tangible, positive difference on behalf of those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia.”

The company also donated many hours of labor, material and support for maintenance and leak repair on the Alzheimer’s Orange County corporate office building and the Adult Day Care Service Center.

Additionally, the company made Alzheimer’s Orange County the Platinum Partner in its ‘Philanthropy Suite’ at the Honda Center, allowing the organization to create and deepen relationships with potential donors, executives and community leaders.

Antis Roofing and Waterproofing is deeply committed to charity and social responsibility, working toward their mission to keep families happy, healthy, safe and dry with a roof over their heads. Antis donates hundreds of hours of time and offers financial support to non-profit partners every year.
