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.

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:

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.

A California burger joint will open its fourth North Carolina store, this time in Monroe, as the chain expands in the Charlotte region.
The Habit Burger Grill, known for its cooked-to-order chargrilled burgers, will debut March 1 at 2121 W. Roosevelt Blvd. near Monroe Crossing Road, the company exclusively told The Charlotte Observer on Tuesday.
The Monroe store is part of The Habit Burger’s expansion plan to open 15 stores in the Charlotte region. Another store is planned at Mooresville at 379 W. Plaza Drive in the former Popeye’s site off Interstate 77. The company does not have a schedule yet for opening the store, company officials said.
Along with its burgers cooked over an open flame, Habit Burger’s menu includes sandwiches such as marinated chicken, sushi-grade ahi tuna and tenderloin steaks, sides like tempura green beans and salads, plus milkshakes.
The Monroe restaurant will offer dine-in, takeout and drive-thru with curbside pick-up and delivery available via The Habit mobile app and online at order.habitburger.com.
Indoor self-serve kiosks also are available. Delivery is through third-party vendors: Grubhub, DoorDash, Postmates and Uber Eats.
Both Charlotte-area stores will be free-standing buildings, 2,500 to 3,000 square feet, the Observer previously reported. Both stores have drive-thrus. Before the COVID pandemic, The Burger Habit chain was 65% dine-in.
Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
The Habit Burger will hold several pre-opening events.
? On Saturday, the first 200 customers at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. receive a free Charburger, fries and drink.
? On Monday and Tuesday: The first 200 customers at 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. receive a free chargrilled meal from a pre-set menu.
Customers must be CharClub member and present VIP invitation by signing up at habitburger.com/monroe/.
The first Habit Burger Grill opened in 1969 in Santa Barbara, California, in 1969.
The Habit Burger Grill has over 350 restaurants in 14 states: Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia and Washington.
There are 12 international locations, five in China and seven in Cambodia.
The Carolinas stores are part of the company’s expansion plan to open 2,000 stores in the U.S. and 10,000 worldwide, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.
In 2019, Habit Burger opened two stores locally, one at 7740 Charlotte Highway in Indian Land, S.C., and another at 209 S. Kings Drive in Charlotte. The South Carolina store is still open but the Charlotte store closed within a year.
The Habit Burger’s other North Carolina stores are in Clemmons, Burlington and Fayetteville. Another store is expected to open this year in Greensboro.

There’s a new location to apply for a passport in Charlotte.
The city recently opened an office in uptown that will accept passport applications for travelers on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.
Located at the clerk’s office in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center at 600 E. 4th St., the facility aims to help alleviate delays and make the process more convenient.
For months, it’s been difficult to get a passport in Charlotte after the State Department in February temporarily suspended its online passport renewals (OPR) service.
Most in-person appointment slots at other offices in the area are filled through April, and travelers can only book appointments up to four weeks in advance.
“The city is pleased to provide this additional convenience to city employees and uptown residents, workers and visitors,” City Clerk Stephanie Kelly said in a statement.
Regular processing could take 8 to 11 weeks, while expedited passports are expected to take 5 to 7 weeks, officials said.
“We understand that it may currently be difficult to find an appointment at an acceptance facility in some areas of the country, including in Charlotte,” a State Department spokesperson told The Charlotte Observer in February. “Appointment availability may fluctuate throughout the year with upticks in demand, especially as we approach the busy season for spring and summer travel.”
Because it is a passport acceptance facility, you will not be able to renew your passport at the city’s new office. If you need to renew your passport, you can do so by mail.
Where: 600 E. 4th St., Charlotte, NC 28202, Suite 159
When: You can schedule passport appointments Tuesdays through Thursdays from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Services are offered in-person by appointment only. Appointments can be made online at charlottenc.gov.
Here are the materials you need to have when applying for a new passport:
There are additional documents needed to get a passport for children 16 and under. Those requirements can be found at travel.state.gov.
Location: 1820 Harris Houston Rd., Charlotte, NC 28262
Appointments are required. You can schedule an appointment online.
Location: 11035 Golf Links Dr., Charlotte, NC 28277
Appointments are required. You can schedule an appointment online.
Location: 8845 Craver Rd., Charlotte, NC 28223
No walk-ins until further notice. Scheduled appointments can be made between 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Call 704 687-5803 or email@example.com for more information.
To check for an open appointment outside of Charlotte, you can access the Passport Acceptance Facility Search Page database at iafdb.travel.state.gov.

Take that, Raleigh.
Any day we get to say that is a good day. And on this day, we in Charlotte present to you proof, via Southern Living. The publication that knows the South has released its “The South’s Best 2023” guide.
Included in the guide:
When ranking its cities, Southern Living touted Charlotte’s food scene (Shoutout to Leah & Louise, which has also been named to best restaurant lists by Esquire and the New York Times), and the city’s parks, concerts and museums.
We guess Raleigh has some nice things, too — the magazine mentioned restaurants Brewery Bhavana, Poole’s Diner, Boulted Bread and Gallo Pelón. Those are good, just not quite No. 11 good, apparently.
In case you’re wondering, Charleston, South Carolina, got the No. 1 spot this year. We suppose it’s pretty great, too.
Don’t miss the full list — all jokes aside, it’s a bookmarkable roundup of Southern cities for your spring and summer travel plans.
“The macaron selection has reached rainbow proportions, and those croissants can still invade your dreams,” Charlotte Observer alum Kathleen Purvis says about Amelie’s French Bakery & Café.
Purvis also shouted out the soups and sandwiches at the bakery known for its French, artistic vibes. Its tarts, cakes, blondies and, of course, the famous salted caramel brownie also make her list of reasons why Amelie’s is the best bakery in North Carolina.
My personal favorite: A build-your-own breakfast sandwich with egg and cheddar on a croissant, the Spinach Asparagus Leek soup and basically anything on the coffee or dessert menus.
Southern Living also shouted out the following:

Charlotte officials say charging for on-street parking in South End and Uptown will increase access to businesses and generate $700,000 in revenue per year.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte transportation officials announced Friday that drivers will soon have to pay for Saturday on-street parking in Uptown and South End.
The Charlotte Department of Transportation announced paid street parking will begin Saturday, March 25. CDOT said adding paid parking will give people better access to Uptown and South End businesses by increasing turnover on busy days.
Paid parking was approved by Charlotte City Council last year. It was supposed to start in September but got pushed back to 2023 to allow further public engagement and assessment of the parking system.

NEW: Starting March 25, the public can expect to pay for on-street parking on Saturdays in Uptown and South End.Adding paid parking at metered spaces will provide better access to Uptown and South End businesses and venues by allowing parking turnover on this high-demand day. pic.twitter.com/FohO35nHwG— Charlotte DOT (@CharlotteDOT) March 10, 2023
Mayor Vi Lyles said at the time there are a few reasons why charging for parking is beneficial, including an estimated $700,000 in additional revenue in a single year. She also said this will encourage more people to use public transit.
"We ought to create the parking so you can go into the city and park, but not for three days at a time," Lyle said.
Councilman Tarig Bokhari was against the plan, saying Charlotte's public transit isn't strong enough and the plan wasn't thought through before it was passed. Charlotte was recently named one of the worst cities to live in if you don't own a car and depend on mass transit.
In addition to adding Saturday paid parking, Charlotte bumped hourly rates for metered spots from $1 to $1.50 per hour. It was the first change in street parking prices since 1997.

D.J. Moore has been traded away and now the Carolina Panthers desperately need a new top dog at wide receiver. Here are four names they should consider signing.
For the Carolina Panthers to secure the No. 1 overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft, the team had to ship off one of the best wide receivers in franchise history. D.J. Moore is a player who always deserved better than what the team was able to give him and he will now play a significant role in Justin Fields’ potential leap in Year 3 with the Chicago Bears.
Despite some of the worst quarterbacking the team has ever seen, Moore was able to go above and beyond when his number was called. But the Panthers would not have been able to land their franchise signal-caller of the future without including the Maryland product in the deal.
However, with Moore’s departure, Carolina is in desperate need of a wide receiver to help bring along the next franchise quarterback. Anything else is malpractice given their current options.
With free agency finally underway, here are four wide receivers the Panthers should consider signing to replace the production left behind by Moore.
(Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports) Allen Lazard /
One of the most promising young receivers on the market, Allen Lazard is a big target that can win the 50/50 ball and be a huge presence in the red zone. Coming off a season where he posted career highs in targets, catches, and yards, the wideout is primed for a nice contract.
The former Green Bay Packer has been one of Aaron Rodgers’ top targets. At 6-foot 5, Lazard can be a threat downfield and in the red zone that would immediately give the new Carolina Panthers quarterback a body on the outside to trust.
The one-time Iowa State standout has struggled with drops in his career and leaves much to be desired as a runner after the catch. However, with his frame and success last year in Green Bay, Lazard should be on the Panthers’ radar.
(Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports) Odell Beckham Jr. /
There are few wide receivers in the last decade that have been as polarizing and prolific as Odell Beckham Jr. Injuries and abysmal quarterbacking have derailed his career the past few seasons, including missing all of 2022. But make no mistake, he can still get it done.
Beckham is a special player. The player’s speed, route running, and ability to make extraordinary catches put him on track to finish his career as one of the best wide receiver talents the league has ever seen.
The last game Beckham played was Super Bowl LVI and he absolutely lit it up with two catches, 52 receiving yards, and a touchdown before tearing his ACL midway through the second quarter. Many believe if he had finished the game, there was a great chance the wideout would’ve earned himself a Super Bowl MVP award.
The hold-up from signing a player of Beckham’s prowess is, of course, his injury history. The last two seasons the LSU product has played have been cut short by ACL tears, which is a concern for the Carolina Panthers if they are thinking about signing him.
However, if he can prove that he is healthy and ready to go, Carolina should be the perfect landing spot. Whether those in power have enough spare finances to make Beckham an offer he’d consider is the big question.
