IB Roof Systems and Antis Roofing & Waterproofing rallied together to ensure The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach (BGCLB) would have a new roof that would help the organization provide a safe haven for generations of young people.
“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.”
IB Roof Systems is a Texas based, family-owned business founded in 1978. IB Roof Systems bases its success on three pillars of performance including quality products, exceptional service, and technical expertise. Thanks to CEO Jason Stanley, IB Roof Systems donated all of the product needed to replace the roof.
“During this time of crisis, it is important for us to find a way to help kids stay safe and dry,” said Stanley. “We are here today to do that and do our part! We are happy to play our part helping the Boys & Girls Club and hope that we inspire other industry leaders to do the same in the future.”
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, CEO of Antis Roofing & Waterproofing. Antis has helped numerous nonprofits with their roofing needs, including Habit for Humanity and the Ronald McDonald House.
“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," said Antis. "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!”
This isn't the first time IB Roof Systems and Antis Roofing teamed up to do some good. In September 2019, the companies donated a new roof for the Thomas House Family Shelter, giving homeless families with children a stable roof over their heads.
Estes also extended a thank you to John Schwartz of the David Schwartz Foundation and to local donors who underwrote labor costs involved in building the roof.
“It is reassuring to know there are so many caring people who are stepping up during times of adversity,” said Estes.
