Commercial and residential roofing are similar in that they both require seasoned professionals to perform quality work. However, unlike the more straightforward approach of residential roofing, commercial roofing projects can be lengthy and complex. In our experience, there are dozens of factors that must be considered when completing a commercial roof project.
In South Carolina, commercial roof repair must account for rooftop HVAC systems, external utilities, external piping, the type of commercial roof, and much more. Because commercial roofing structures vary in design and complexity, even common tasks like leak repairs become more difficult. Whether you need a commercial roof inspection or a total roof replacement, your contractors must be highly trained and follow best practices specific to commercial roofing, not just residential. At Hixon's, our commercial roofing contractors have years of experience and training for commercial property needs.
Like the residential side of our business, we have completed hundreds of commercial roofing contracts in South Carolina. We know exactly what it takes to inspect, repair, or replace your commercial roofing structure.

They know our commercial roof technicians are friendly, dependable, hold the highest qualifications in the industry.

Don't settle for average roofing contractors if you're starting a commercial roofing project. Commercial roofing services are an investment, and you need to get your money's worth. Hixon's Roofing & Construction is here to earn your trust by exceeding your expectations with any commercial roofing job you have.
A safe and well-maintained roof is a vital component of any building's structural integrity, and that's why the importance of commercial roof repair is so high. A well-built roof protects the building's interior from severe weather and even helps with fire prevention. A variety of problems can plague your roof's health such as standing water, blisters, and gaps in flashing. It's imperative to keep up with minor repairs now so that massive problems don't cause financial issues later.
A few benefits of hiring Hixon's for your commercial roof repair include:
This benefit sounds like a no-brainer, but it deserves to be highlighted because of how important it is. Your safety and your customers' safety are crucial when you own a commercial property.
Hiring trained, licensed commercial roofing experts keeps you safe by:
Having a functional, well-maintained roof that works properly, 24/7. When your commercial roof is in good shape and working correctly, you and your customers are much safer.
Commercial roof repair is a dangerous job for a novice. A quick search online will bring up dozens of cases in South Carolina where DIYers have injured themselves trying to repair their commercial property.
Here at Hixon's commercial roof repair, we often speak to entrepreneurs who list their budget as the biggest reason why roof repair is low on their "to-do" list. That stance is understandable, but we believe quality commercial roofing maintenance actually boosts your bottom line over time. The truth is regular roof inspections uncover minor repair issues before they turn into budget busters.
Hiring Hixon's for your commercial roof repair is usually more affordable than dealing with a huge issue down the road. Plus, commercial roof maintenance extends the life of your roof, which can help you avoid replacing your roof much longer than you would without proper maintenance.
Many commercial property owners are concerned about liability, and rightfully so. A roof that has not been maintained for long periods of time can cause physical harm. You may be financially responsible if someone is hurt because your roof is in disrepair.
Hiring a qualified team of commercial roofers in South Carolina lets you get a detailed assessment of your roof's condition. That way, you can take the necessary steps to protect your customers, your building, and ultimately, your business.
Unsurprisingly, most commercial roof warranties require that owners prove that their roof has had regular maintenance prior to paying repairs. Commercial roof repair in South Carolina can be costly, and it's frustrating to fork out money for repairs that should be covered under your warranty.
Fortunately, you can avoid fiascos like these by maintaining a regular roof inspection schedule from Hixon's Roofing. That way, you will have the proof needed to provide to your insurance agency if you must file a claim.
A functional, well-maintained roof is a crucial component of any commercial building's structural integrity. When properly maintained, your commercial roof will protect you from the elements and add an aesthetically aura to your building. When properly maintained, your commercial roof will protect you from the elements and add an aesthetical aura to your building. However, when you fail to maintain your roof, a variety of problems can occur. Keep your eye out for the following signs that your commercial roof needs repair.
Standing water can have incredibly adverse effects on your commercial roofing system. It can cause leaks that deteriorate your roof's integrity, which leads to water intrusion. When water intrudes your commercial building, it can cause a litany of health hazards like mold and bacteria. When you spot standing water on your roof, your roof's support system may be seriously compromised, especially with wooden materials.
Commercial roofs are made with materials meant for outdoor conditions, but too much heat or moisture can cause a blistering effect that allows moisture to seep in and weaken your roof's structure. When this happens, your roof ages prematurely, thereby reducing its ability to protect you and your customers or tenants.
Having a functional drainage system is paramount to the health of your commercial roof. If scuppers or drains are clogged with waste and debris, water pools on your roof, which will eventually make its way inside. Gaps in flashing can also cause water to permeate the building. Additionally, cracks and worn seams give water access inside. Keep a sharp eye out for signs of clogged drains and gaps in your roof's flashing. If you notice these signs, call Hixon's commercial roof repair as soon as possible.
Let's be honest: replacing your businesses' roof is no small task. Regular maintenance and care can go a long way in extending the life of your commercial roof, but with enough time, even the best roofs will need to be replaced.

Hilton Head and Charleston have long been sought-after locales, but smaller inland towns in the region are seeing a surge in interest, particularly from young families.
June 2, 2023, 5:00 a.m. ET
For two years a surprising front-runner has emerged in the luxury real estate market: Buyers still want to be on the water but are choosing to settle along the rivers of South Carolina’s Lowcountry and the small inland communities built around them, a Realtor.com/Wall Street Journal ranking has found.
Franklin Newell, an agent at the Broadhurst Group, a real estate firm on Hilton Head Island, S.C., said a combination of “great weather, low taxes and a beautiful natural setting” contributed to the area’s growth.
While Hilton Head and Charleston have long been sought-after South Carolina locales, smaller inland river towns like Bluffton and Beaufort are seeing a surge in homeownership, even surpassing cities like Tampa, Fla., and Nashville in popularity. With their sense of community and less-hectic lifestyle, these towns are attracting young families.
Palmetto Bluff, a luxury resort community in Bluffton, once was largely filled with retirees and second-home owners who found their way to the area through the five-star resort hotel on the property, the Montage Palmetto Bluff. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020, families with young children were changing the demographics of Palmetto Bluff, but the pandemic accelerated that trend.
Mike Broadhurst of the Broadhurst Group attributed this change to work-from-home flexibility and people leaving high-tax states. (South Carolina ranks toward the middle of the 50 states in overall taxes.) He said that before the pandemic, he and Mr. Newell “had never sold a home to someone from California, and we’ve now sold half a dozen.”
Bryan Byrne, broker-in-charge for Palmetto Bluff Real Estate, said the community had always done well with residents from traditional cold weather locations like Detroit and Cleveland, as well as affluent northeast areas. “The surprise has been Florida,” he said, estimating 15 to 20 sales to families from Florida in the last two years.
Mr. Byrne said he also sees an exodus from high-tax states like California and New York to the area, including at Palmetto Bluff, where residents enjoy an array of amenities as part of their club experience. (The top tax bracket on income for South Carolina residents is 6.5 percent, while property taxes in Beaufort county, where Bluffton is located, average 0.45 percent.)
Palmetto Bluff has golf, of course, but it also features a conservancy on site with walking trails and hunting. The May River borders the property, and a newly constructed marina allows residents to store their boats and get out on the water, for fishing or water skiing.
Jeff and Michelle Solomon were visiting the resort for 10 years before they finally bought a vacation home in 2018. They were there at the onset of the pandemic and have never left. “We were talking to our friends and family in Michigan and up north in lockdown, and it was cold and nasty,” Michelle Solomon said. “They were stuck in their houses and here we are living our best life.”
The variety of outdoor activities available year-round, and the opportunity to be part of a community with young children — something their life in Michigan had lacked — made it easy for the Solomons to stay.
“We just flourished,” Ms. Solomon said. “In Michigan, we didn’t live in a neighborhood, and this was the first time that kids were knocking on our door at all hours of the day and night. Our daughter was outside from morning till night. No TV, no electronics. It was like this old-fashioned lifestyle.”
At Berkeley Hall, 25 minutes north by car, a similar narrative is developing. The community is situated on the Okatee River and, like Palmetto Bluff, is gated. Though more golf-centric, its club offers a number of other outdoor pursuits as well, like boating and fishing.
Alex Madeiros, director of sales and marketing for Berkeley Hall, said that, while there was a lot of interest in homes and relocation, “I think it’s the amenities and lifestyle that people are becoming most interested in.”
Those offerings were a factor in Lindsey and Chris DeSalvo’s decision to relocate from Western New York. They purchased land at Berkeley Hall and are waiting for their home to be built.
With one child in college and another finishing high school, the couple was looking for a location with an affordable cost of living and quality health care, according to Lindsey DeSalvo, a pharmacist. What appealed to them about the community was its proximity to Old Town Bluffton with its mix of entertainment and retail.
In both developments, club life is meant to offer residents a pace and ease of lifestyle, not to mention an instant community. All of this comes with a price tag, though. In addition to the cost of homes, which are averaging $697 per square foot at Palmetto Bluff, club membership fees are an added and required expense ($40,000 initially, then annual dues of $12,000; sporting, boating, club and golf fees are separate and optional). The membership fees, however, cover the amenities that many residents look for at luxury communities, like pools and spa facilities, as well as 24-hour security services.
At Berkeley Hall, which has an average home price of $463 per square foot, each homeowner is also a club member. At Palmetto Bluff, however, there is a menu of options that come with club membership. Homeowners can choose from additional golf, boating or shooting club memberships and may opt in for all, none or some.
Josh Bischoff, who works in financial services, and has lived in Palmetto Bluff since May 2019 but had a vacation home there since 2014, said the largest piece of the puzzle when he and his family made the move from New Jersey was finding a school for his children. He and his wife, Megan, send their children to school in Savannah, Ga., about 35 minutes away, to a school comparable to the one they had attended in New Jersey. He said he had seen firsthand the changing demographics of Palmetto Bluff from retirees to families like his, and they’ve benefited from a variety of programming the club offers, including summer camps.
Like other homeowners in both communities, he feels a sense of security and even nostalgia. “It kind of gives the kids the same experience a lot of us had growing up,” he said, “where you had a little more freedom and go hang out with your friends and be home for dinner, and where your parents kind of felt like every parent looks out for every kid.”
Mr. Bischoff said that, Covid aside, the hustle and bustle of living in the northeast increasingly made his family’s lifestyle more difficult. “The density of the place just kind of grinds on you after a while,” he said, and on each visit to the Lowcountry, “it became harder and harder to leave.”
He pointed out some trade-offs, though. “It’s a phenomenal community and phenomenal people, but there isn’t a decent Chinese restaurant in the area,” he joked. “But I’ll give up decent Chinese food for a much nicer climate, a real community to live in and the amenities Palmetto Bluff has.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County School District Superintendent has sent a cease-and-desist letter to a member of the school board alleging “defamatory, slanderous and libelous” social media posts.
In the letter, obtained exclusively by Live 5 News, Superintendent Don Kennedy accuses board member Keith Grybowski of writing posts on a Moms for Liberty Facebook group, in which he describes the search for a new superintendent as “long” and “extensive”.
In reality, Kennedy says the current board’s process began on March 13 and effectively ended this week. He says staff gave up time off to move the process ahead, saying it took only 50 business days to launch a search and enter into contract negotiation with a new superintendent.
“CCSD Staff worked tirelessly to schedule stakeholder engagement events, some of which were held over Spring Break. Their involvement in the planning of the “board-led” initiative placed them in a tenuous position and required them to work during time that should have been spent with their families,” Kennedy wrote.
Kennedy further accuses Grybowski and demands from the board have made his job and the job staff particularly difficult.
“I admit that my engagement with the Board has publicly been, at times, tense, but the public and private demands for increased Board oversight, along with the stripping of duties and responsibilities delegated to the Superintendent, cast doubts upon the professional reputation of all educator in CCSD, including me,” Kennedy wrote.
Last week, the board voted to delay the approval of the district’s $650+ million budget citing a need for more transparency. Board members wanted to ask more questions about the district’s various accounts among other questions they district staff have refused to answer.
Kennedy’s letter accuses of Grybowski, the chair of the Audit and Finance Committee, of refusing to meet with the finance department staff to better understand the budget. According to Kennedy, Grybowski referred to the budget as a “disaster”.
“The assertation that the school district has “nothing to show” for $300,000,000.00 is blatantly false,” Kennedy said. “The insinuation that the Board has not been provided with ample information for the Budget cycle is false, and blaming the current budget situation on my work and the work of my staff is slanderous.”
Kennedy says the environment created by Grybowski and board lead to the departure of “one of the nation’s most capable minority CFOs”. While Kennedy didn’t mention her by name, the district’s last CFO was Channa Williams who resigned in February.
Kennedy claims the former CFO would testify to the harassment received from the board.
“The budgeting process has arrived at a place that was inevitable when one considers the obvious obstruction caused by the Audit and Finance Committee Chair’s refusal to meet with the prior CFO,” Kennedy said.
“The multiple insinuations of insubordination, accusations of lying, questioning of qualifications of professional firms, publicly stated from the dais, are damaging and demeaning. Several of our partners have been appalled by the crass comments and inability to collaborate with all partners for the betterment of children. This has created a hostile work environment. . .”
Kennedy finishes his letter by rejecting the Grybowski’s suggestion that CCSD’s education is inadequately preparing student. Kennedy says the education data from the latest round of tests are embargoed to the public but show “significantly increased academic performance”, suggesting Kennedy’s approach to the district’s turnaround effort is working.
“To call into question publicly, and in your official capacity, my ability to provide oversight is hostile, troublesome, and again defamatory,” Kennedy wrote.
Grybowski has not responded to a request for comment, but he did send a letter to board members saying he does not intend to respond to Kennedy.
“I find it on the verge of insubordination for an employee to question my right to advise my constituents,” Grybowski wrote. “I will not let this stop the transparency concern we pledged to our constituents.”

When it comes to Union Pier, we need to stop talking about the State Ports Authority. The state of South Carolina is the owner, and it is acting like a private developer trying to squeeze every last dollar out of land it was given decades ago.
The owner is one arm of government seeking the approval of another arm of government (Charleston City Council) to secure a big payday. The simple fact is this is not private property. Union Pier belongs to the public.
Anyone who has been paying the slightest bit of attention to the Union Pier saga knows there is no local constituency for what the state and its designated agent, Los Angeles-based Lowe, is selling. All that noise you are hearing is not a few disgruntled neighbors, but a city shouting NO!
In the end, State Ports boss Barbara Melvin, who is running the deal for the state, is counting on the apathy of suburban council members and a grand last-minute concession to maybe double (or whatever it takes) the number of on-site affordable housing units to buy off enough other council votes to get to seven.
Never said but always present is the quiet threat that if Charleston doesn’t like what’s on offer, there’s something else that it will like even less. Too many hotel rooms and pricey apartments? We could sell off Union Pier piece by piece. Or park BMWs there. Maybe more cruise ships rather than fewer?
This is not how government is supposed to work. The entire deal has been rife with conflicts of interest and cronyism from the start.
The Ports Authority, a government agency, hired Lowe, a private developer, to get Union Pier through the city approval process on its timeline. This is the same company that paid the authority $38 million for its former waterfront headquarters on Concord Street in 2017; State Ports then paid Lowe $69,000 a month to lease back the building while it was finishing its new digs on the Wando.
This cozy relationship led the Ports Authority to hire Lowe at $50,000 a month to permit Union Pier. Lowe went on to recruit Jacob Lindsey, Charleston’s former planning director, to negotiate the city’s political gantlet. The most audacious touch of all: Lowe’s absurd sweetheart deal with the Ports Authority for a 9.5% commission if any other developer is chosen.
This is all about the money. The state wants the highest price possible for its 64 acres of waterfront property, which the city foolishly gave away not once but twice, in 1947 and 1994. Imagine where we would be today if the city had leased its waterfront for $1 a year instead of gifting it to the state.
The sale is supposed to finance the expansion of Leatherman Terminal, which today remains mostly idle because of an endless labor dispute the Ports Authority is currently losing. (See cranes sitting silently on the docks.)
If the state wants to expand Leatherman, it should do what it always does: Write a check to the Ports Authority. In 2021, the Legislature agreed to provide $550 million to build a rail yard and operate barges to move cargo containers at the terminal. Write another.
State Ports never tires of reminding us it is responsible for 1 in 10 jobs in South Carolina, but much less discussed is that the vast majority of that economic impact benefits the Upstate and Midlands.
South Carolina is, in fact, rolling in dough. The state is one of the fastest-growing in the country, and its new revenue last year ballooned to $3.8 billion. The state’s debt is the lowest in memory.
There is no reason Charleston should have to live forever with too-tall, too-dense development on its waterfront to pay an outsize share of the cost of Leatherman’s expansion.
The solution to Union Pier lies not in Charleston but in Columbia.
It makes you long for days of the powerful Charleston delegation we no longer have. Gov. Henry McMaster needs to pick up the phone and tell Bill Stern, Ports Authority chairman, that the future of Charleston’s waterfront is every bit as important as new berths at Leatherman.
Thirty years from now, no one will remember the Ports Authority’s big pay day. Union Pier will still be with us, for better or for worse.

PARIS — Emma Navarro’s second attempt at a comeback at the French Open fell short on Thursday.
The Ashley Hall graduate and Charleston resident, who rallied in the third set for a first-round victory earlier in the week, bounced back from a first-set loss to take a 4-2 lead in the second set against 42nd-ranked Bianca Andreescu of Canada.
But Andreescu, the 2019 U.S. Open champion, was too much for No. 75 Navarro, a former NCAA singles champ who turned pro last year and was playing just her third match at a Grand Slam tennis event, and second on the red clay of Roland Garros.
Andreescu won the final four games to close out a 6-1, 6-4 victory in a second-round match.
Navarro, 22, broke serve in the fifth game of the second set on the way to a 4-2 lead. But Andreescu broke back in the eighth game for 4-4, then broke serve again to take the match when Navarro hit a backhand wide.
Navarro is not done at the French Open, however. She will team with another former Virginia player, Danielle Collins, in the doubles draw. Collins won two NCAA titles at Virginia.
Meanwhile, teen sensation Mirra Andreeva , a 16-year-old Russian who is the youngest player to win a match in the women’s main draw at the French Open since 2005, is still on a roll.
The 143rd-ranked Andreeva made her way through qualifying rounds last week without dropping a set to earn her debut berth in the women’s bracket at a Grand Slam tournament — and she still is making things look easy so far.
A 6-1, 6-2 victory over Diane Perry of France in 77 minutes on Thursday put her in the third round; that followed a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Alison Riske-Amritraj of the U.S. that lasted 56 minutes.
Next up will be a contest against 2022 French Open runner-up Coco Gauff, who beat Julia Grabher 6-2, 6-3. Gauff, a 19-year-old American, is seeded No. 6 and made her initial breakthrough by beating Venus Williams en route to the fourth round at Wimbledon at age 14.
Another women’s qualifier made it to the third round when Kayla Day, a Californian ranked 138th, knocked out No. 20 Madison Keys 6-2, 4-6, 6-4. Keys, the runner-up at the 2017 U.S. Open and a semifinalist at the 2018 French Open, made 74 unforced errors, 51 more than Day.
The series of losses by seeded women continued with Bernarda Pera defeating No. 22 Donna Vekic 3-6, 6-4, 6-3, although No. 1 Iga Swiatek, No. 4 Elena Rybakina and No. 7 Ons Jabeur all advanced in straight sets.
The men’s bracket saw the departure of No. 8 Jannik Sinner with a wild 6-7 (0), 7-6 (7), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 7-5 loss across nearly 5 1/2 hours against 79th-ranked Daniel Altmaier, and No. 18 Alex de Minaur was eliminated by Tomas Martin Etcheverry 6-3, 7-6 (2), 6-3.
No. 4 Casper Ruud, No. 12 Frances Tiafoe and No. 15 Borna Coric all won.
