Charles Antis


What is your position within your company?
I am founder and CEO of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing Inc., Irvine, Calif.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
Soon after I founded Antis Roofing & Waterproofing, I responded to a call from a single mother with seven children who was concerned about her leaking roof. Upon entering her house, I was overwhelmed by the smell of mildew. As I stood there, her youngest daughter grabbed my hand to proudly show off her home. When she led me into her bedroom, I saw four mattresses with moldy bedding. The next weekend, six volunteers joined me in providing a new roof for the family free of charge. This unusual experience in my career shaped what Antis Roofing & Waterproofing would become.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
It was a job offer I received after moving to California in 1984!
