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.

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.

By the end of this month, five new principals are expected to be approved this for Columbus area schools.
The Harris County School District announced Monday that Jennifer Taylor, an assistant principal at the high school, has been appointed as principal of the middle school, effective March 6. She succeeds Melissa Gates, who became an assistant principal at the high school.
“In working with these two leaders and their aspirational goals, this change seemed to work for them and the district,” HCSD superintendent Roger Couch told the L-E in an email.
Four new principals are on the agenda for approval at next week’s Muscogee County School District Board meeting. Superintendent David Lewis has recommended the following appointments:
The board is scheduled to vote on the recommendations during its March 20 meeting, starting at 6 p.m.
Freeman has told the Ledger-Enquirer he is retiring.
Myers told the L-E Monday she is resigning, effective March 31, to pursue unspecified opportunities. “I’ve loved my time here,” she said. “It’s been a most rewarding position.”
The L-E didn’t reach Sellers and Stone for comment before publication, but Lewis told the L-E in an email Tuesday that they are retiring.
Deloatch would take over at Rothschild on April 10, after spring break, and all the other promotions would be effective July 1, Lewis said.
Asked why he is recommending these candidates, Lewis said, “All four recommended candidates have completed our district’s principal preparation program, are currently assistant principals in their respective schools and received the endorsements of their supervisors, and each conveyed solid, aspirational visions for their school communities.”
They were selected among 25 applicants, from which six were interviewed, Lewis said.
Here’s some background information about the new HCSD principal and the recommended MCSD principals:
Taylor has worked in HCSD for 15 years.
“My passion for teaching and learning has led me to become a school administrator, and I am confident that my experience will be an asset to this amazing school,” Taylor said in HCSD’s news release. “I believe every child has unique abilities, and my goal as a principal is to create a learning environment where each student can thrive and become a better version of themselves each day.”
Before beginning her career in education, Taylor served for four years in the U.S. Air Force as an F-15 avionics specialist. She taught science for 13 years at Harris County Carver Middle School. For three months, she was the district’s Multi-tiered System of Supports coordinator. She became an assistant principal at Harris County High School in October 2021.
Taylor is a 2017 Georgia Teacher of the Year finalist.
At Columbus State University, she earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree in middle grades education and Tier I Educational Leadership Certification. She is on track to earn in May a specialist’s degree in educational leadership and Tier II Leadership Certification.
Patterson has worked in MCSD for 22 years, including the past nine as assistant principal at Spencer.
After teaching physics for one year at Pacelli Catholic High School in 2000-01, Patterson taught math and science from 2001-07 at Marshall Middle and math from 2007-10 at Blackmon Road Middle School. From 2010-13, she was a school improvement specialist in math and science at Eddy Middle School.
Patterson earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from Howard University in 1999, a master’s degree in math education from Columbus State University in 2009 and a specialist’s degree in education leadership from CSU in 2012.
Lawrence has worked in MCSD for 13 years, including the past five as assistant principal at Aaron Cohn. He previously taught English at Carver High School from 2010-18.
He is the 2016 MCSD Teacher of the Year and a 2019 Georgia Teacher of the Year finalist.
Lawrence earned a bachelor’s degree (2009) and a master’s degree (2012) in English/secondary education from Columbus State University and a doctorate in education leadership from the University of Georgia in 2017.
Deloatch has been an educator for 16 years, including the past four as assistant principal at Rothschild.
She started her career as a teacher from 2007-13 at Chattahoochee County Middle School, where she was head of the English department. After serving as assistant head of the social studies department in 2014 at Spencer, she was an academic coach there from 2014-17, then academic dean from 2017-19 at Midland Middle School.
Deloatch earned an associate’s degree in secondary education from Chattahoochee Valley Community College in 1998, bachelor’s degrees in political science and African American studies from the University of Georgia in 2001, a master’s degree in education from Columbus State University in 2019 and a specialist’s degree in education leadership from CSU in 2022.
Wilson has been an educator for 17 years, including the past five years as assistant principal at Dimon.
She started her career as a teacher from 2006-08 at North Columbus Elementary School. From 2008-15, she taught at St. Elmo Center for the Gifted. She was assistant principal at Eagle Ridge Academy from 2015-18.
Wilson earned her college degrees from Columbus State University: a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education in 2005, a master’s degree in middle grades education with a concentration in math and science in 2011 and a specialist’s degree in education leadership in 2014.

The Ledger-Enquirer has compiled the latest health inspections scores for cafeterias in Columbus area public and private schools.
This list comprises the most recent scores from inspections conducted by Georgia and Alabama health department officials and posted on their websites.
Georgia’s inspection frequency depends on the food establishment category, but it’s typically twice per year. Establishments that receive a food safety grade of “C” (below 80 on the 100-point scale) or “U” (below 70) will have at least one additional routine inspection added in a 12-month period and may have more inspections at the discretion of the local health authority.
If an establishment maintains an “A” food safety rating on three consecutive routine inspections, the local health authority may reduce the frequency of routine inspections.
Alabama inspects food establishments every four months or every six months if the previous inspection score was at least 95.
Georgia’s health department posts the inspection reports online, so those violations are noted in this list. Alabama, however, posts only the scores — not the reports — so those violations aren’t noted here.
The following scores are from reports conducted May 23, 2022, through March 3, 2023.
100: Allen, Blanchard, Brewer, Britt David, Clubview, Davis, Dawson, Dimon, Double Churches, Eagle Ridge, Forrest Road, Fox, Gentian, Georgetown, Johnson, Lonnie Jackson, Martin Luther King Jr., Mathews, Midland, North Columbus, Rigdon Road, River Road, South Columbus, St. Marys Road, Waddell, Wesley Heights and Wynnton.
96: Dorothy Height. Sept. 13, the inspector reported pink buildup on the back of the ice machine’s chute. The person in charge said they would clean the machine as soon as possible. The problem must be solved within 10 days.
96: Hannan: Oct. 14, the inspector reported handwashing sinks and the dishwashing area without hot water. The person in charge said the school district was made aware of the issue. It must be corrected within 10 days.
95: Downtown. Sept. 12, the inspector reported a “pink-like substance” built up on the ice machine’s chute. The problem must be corrected within 72 hours. The inspector also reported the facility didn’t have a testing kit to accurately measure the concentration of sanitizing solutions. The problem must be corrected within 10 days.
91: Reese Road. March 1, the inspector reported 15-20 cans of food (beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce and peaches) in dry storage with rust around the rims. The rust was due to a water hose bursting and causing moisture in the area. The person in charge solved the problem by discarding the cans during the inspection.
87: Key. Sept. 12, the inspector reported the temperature of the hot water in the handwashing sink in the main kitchen area not reaching the required 100 degrees Fahrenheit. It was 82.9 degrees. The inspector required it to be corrected within 10 days. The inspector also reported the meat for the nachos that day wasn’t cooled to the proper temperature. The temperature is supposed to cool from 135 degrees to 70 degrees by 2 hours before lunchtime. It was at 116 degrees during the inspection. The person in charge reheated the meat to the appropriate temperature.
100: Aaron Cohn, Baker, Blackmon Road, Double Churches, East Columbus, Eddy, Fort, Midland and Veterans Memorial.
99: Arnold: Oct. 5, the inspector reported keys, a cellphone, tape and papers stored on a slicer atop a prep table. Employees removed those personal items and placed them in the proper area.
99: Richards. Dec. 2, the inspector reported the temperature on the dishwasher’s final rinse was 164 degrees. It should be 180 degrees. The person in charge put in a work order to fix the problem. Until it is repaired, items must be washed in the three-compartment sink.
100: Carver, Columbus, Hardaway, Jordan, Kendrick, Shaw and Spencer.
91: Northside. Oct. 28, the inspector reported a food employee who was prepping sandwiches walk to the dry storage room, turn on the light, retrieve a storage bag, then return to prepping sandwiches without washing hands and changing gloves. The inspector informed the person in charge and gave a reminder about the rules for that situation.
100: Marshall Success Center, Rainey-McCullers School of the Arts and St. Elmo Center for the Gifted.
100: Creekside, Harris County Carver Middle School, Harris County High School, Mulberry Creek, New Mountain Hill, Park and Pine Ridge.
100: Chattahoochee County Education Center and Chattahoochee County Middle/High School
100: Central Freshman Academy, Central High School, Creative Learning Center, Creekside Early Learning Center, Culinary Arts Center, Lakewood Elementary School, Lakewood Primary School, Meadowlane Elementary School, New Beginning Parenting Center, Phenix City Early Learning Center, Phenix City Elementary School, Phenix City Intermediate School, Phenix City Special Education Center, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Sherwood Elementary School, South Girard School, Success Academy, The Brick and Westview Elementary School.
100: Dixie Elementary School, Ladonia Elementary School, Mount Olive Elementary School, Oliver Elementary School, Russell County High School and Russell County Middle School.

94: St. Luke Early Learning Center: Sept. 9, the inspector reported pink and yellow buildup on the ice machine chute and ordered it corrected within 10 days. The inspector also reported chicken and rice stored inside a corner originally labeled pasta salad. Single-service and single-use containers may not be reused. The person in charge moved to items to food-grade safe containers and discarded the single-use container. The inspector also reported a cupcake was stored on a shelf in the dishwashing area. The person in charge moved the cupcake to the designated area.
The iconic statue Kadie the Cow has been missing its calf, BeBe, for years.

The iconic statue Kadie the Cow has been missing its calf, BeBe, for years. But an anonymous individual decided to return the calf to its mother a couple weeks ago.
BeBe is now in the custody of Uptown Inc. after President Ed Wolverton received a phone call from someone who said they had the calf.
“After seeing a recent media story about our recent move of Kadie to Uptown, he volunteered to return BeBe to us for the reunification,” Wolverton told the Ledger-Enquirer.
Wolverton was surprised that someone came forward with the statue, he said. He was able to pick BeBe up during President’s Day weekend. The next steps will be to ensure that when BeBe is reunited with its mother that the calf will not be running away again.
“Through the years, BeBe has wandered off from Kadie a number of times,” Wolverton said. “So, we want to make sure that when we go to reunite the family that BeBe is well-anchored and it will be very difficult for someone to try to corral BeBe to go elsewhere.”
The calf also needs some cosmetic work before it can be displayed again with Kadie, he said, so officials will begin to ensure BeBe gets the grooming it needs.
The small size of BeBe is also a concern because people might accidentally damage the statue trying to sit on it, Wolverton said, which means officials will begin figuring out a way to prevent this from happening.
Kadie was an iconic attraction for many years in Columbus with BeBe joining a few years later, he said. The chain of custody as to when BeBe was added next to Kadie and how many times the statue has wandered away is murky, he said.
But BeBe had already been missing for a few years before the Best Buy where Kadie was previously located was closed.
Moving Kadie to a location along the riverwalk that is easy for people to find and enjoy has been a great asset for the community, Wolverton said.
“Getting BeBe is a little bit like icing on the cake,” he said. “We knew BeBe was out there somewhere, but we just didn’t know exactly where.”
