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:

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.

HOLLYWOOD, S.C. (WCBD) – A couple from Hollywood, South Carolina will celebrate 75 years of marriage this year. The special couple, both aged 96, still love, laugh, and sing their way through a lifelong marriage.
The price of gas was .23 a gallon 75 years ago. Jackie Robinson took to the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers, becoming the first African American to play in Major League Baseball – but Robinson was not the only one making moves.
Leroy Morrison was working on a home run of his own and focused on a different diamond.
“We went to a wedding one day. A friend had a wedding across the street. I see a girl, and she was dressed so pretty. I said I’m going to carry one of those girls home tonight, two sisters. I said one of y’all gotta go home with me,” he recalled.
“I said this is the girl, I’m gonna marry,” said Mr. Morrison. A feat that took nine months, and the ball was clearly in Ms. Wilhelmina’s court.
“I tell her she’s the one. She looked at me and she said, I don’t love you,” he remembered.
“I used to didn’t like him because he wore suspenders hanging behind him, untidy on him. I just didn’t like him, he wasn’t sharp enough for me. I was sharp. I had a wide-rim hat. I was sharp. I knew I was sharp,” said Mrs. Morrison.
Love triumphed over fashion woes, and on June 12, 1947, Leroy Morrison and Wilhelmina Roach became husband and wife.
“Marriage license was $5.00,” said Mr. Morrison. “My wedding dress cost me $16. I got off of King Street,” added Mrs. Morrison.
Both are now 96 years old with ten children and a long lineage that follows.
The Morrisons say the secret to a happy marriage for them: is faith, forgiveness, compromise, patience, and protecting peace.
“The secret is it’s just like a rubber band. You take the rubber band, the more you stretch it, the more it gives. Don’t stretch it too much, and it stays together,” said Mr. Morrison.
“I always tell people take it, whatever stress comes on, you have to take it to make it, and that’s the only way you can make it,” said Mrs. Morrison. “I didn’t have all good days, but I took the bad days and the good days the same, give and take. He is forgiving, and I was forgiving with him also, that’s what kept us together.”
They also say good meals helped as well. “She’s a good cook. She cooked the meals and baked the pies,” said Mr. Morrison.
Mr. Morrison, a retired shoe repairman and barber, and Mrs. Morrison a stay-at-home mom remain inseparable. “Never spent one night away. If he goes outside, and I don’t see him for five or ten minutes, I’m looking for him,” Mrs. Morrison said.
The Morrisons are considered community champions because they dedicated their lives to helping others, and often hosted neighborhood events to feed their Hollywood community.
Both now have health challenges and have 24-hour care from family members, but they continue to give back in whatever way they can.
Their message to young couples starting out: “I would tell them; every day is not going to be Sunday. Every day is not going to be good. Some days will be bad, but I think most of my days are good days, and go to church treat everybody right, all those people who treat you wrong, love them anyhow,” said Mr. Morrison.
After 75 years of marriage, Mrs. Morrison still sings her song of love for her groom mixed with a kiss, but with notes that render a cautionary tale.
“I love you, Roy. You better not let me catch you walking down lover’s lane with anyone else but me, because I love you. I love you. I love you, Roy,” she sang.
The family held a big celebration to mark the three-quarters of a century milestone in August.
Together, they have ten children, twenty-four grandchildren, sixty-five great-grands, twelve great great grands, and five bonus adopted children.
Happy 75th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Morrison!

HOLLYWOOD, S.C. (WCIV) — A number of people in Hollywood celebrated Independence Day by taking some time to cool down at the West Aquatic Center. The pool at the West Aquatic Center has been nicknamed “The Genesis Pool,” in honor of Genesis Holmes, who drowned in 2014. His mother, Jennifer Holmes, spent her holiday spreading awareness about water safety.
After years of hard work, she was able to collaborate with Charleston County Parks to open the first public pool in rural Charleston County.

“You have to know your limitations when you head out for the Fourth of July just to celebrate with family. Genesis Holmes wanted to celebrate with his friends on May 5th, but he did not know how to swim and Genesis did not return home,” said Holmes.
Her son didn’t make it home, but through the Genesis Pool and Genesis Fund, so many others will. Including her nephew, who now works at the aquatic center.
“When I learned how to swim, it was hard for me because of what happened to my cousin. But I still had to go through it because I knew that if I didn’t get it done, the same thing could happen to me,” said Troy Hamilton.
Troy has also been a part of two swim teams, helping to break the curse of fearing water for this family.
Now, a new generation of swim advocates are being inspired by this pool.
Shanyra Mungin became a lifeguard this summer after spending time with her family at the pool. She says it is now her turn to help.
“It’s all about saving people. Saving kids’ lives. If I do see a kid about to drown, I get up and ask, 'Do you need help? Are you okay?'”
Though she didn’t grow up with swim lessons, she says this pool has become her safe haven.
Charleston County Parks and Recreation offers free swim lessons and water safety education through the Genesis Fund. To donate or join the program, visit ccpr.com.

CHARLESTON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - A new subdivision in the works in Hollywood and is on track to the be the largest in the town.
The subdivision would be near downtown Hollywood, near Highway 162 and Highway 165 and it is set to be larger than Stono Ferry with nearly 400 new homes.
The land has been passed down for generations, and the town’s planning director, Roy Dehaven, says it’s time to grow the town where they can to bring more jobs and more residents to the area.
“Long-term, as its completely built out, it will give us the anchor to this town center district,” Dehaven said. “It’ll give us 350 residences close to the heart of downtown Hollywood.”
The developers say they plan to make the homes entry to medium-priced. Many of the homes will be one-story, which the developers hope could make them attractive to retirees.
Hollywood town officials say this area could serve as a hub for people working in Summerville and North Charleston, and they are already working with the state’s Department of Transportation on improving and widening the highways.
The developer working on the project, Joe Margarite, says they are planning to hire locally within the town for all construction work, and they say that means at least 600 jobs to get the project started.
“It’s going to bring a lot of money into this community,” Margarite said. “It’ll support all of these local businesses here that are struggling. Our Piggly Wiggly right here is struggling to stay open, and they need more customers. There will be construction jobs here for at least 6 years.”
The proposal will be discussed at the town’s planning commission meeting on Oct. 8 and then again at the end of the month.
They’re taking public comment now. Public hearing comments will be accepted in writing via email to the Clerk of Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to P.O. Box 519, Hollywood, South Carolina, 29449.
If it is approved in October, the developers are hoping to start construction by the spring. And construction would take about six years.

DETROIT - The worlds of Hollywood and science collide to help educate kids of all ages on how pop culture impacts modern technological breakthroughs. This is “POPnology,” a new exhibition which just opened at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit.
Running through August 11, “POPnology” features replicas and interactive animatronics of R2-D2, E.T., Hal 9000, H.R. Giger’s Alien, the DeLorean and more. The Science Center teamed up with Signal Restoration Services to bring this traveling exhibition to Michigan.
“Signal Restoration Services is thrilled to support MiSci with this incredibly exciting exhibit that is sure to captivate visitors all summer long,” said Chad Howard, President and COO of Signal Restoration Services. “We believe in giving back to our community and helping children and families grow from fun and engaging learning experiences such as POPnology.”
Along with plenty of photo ops, “POPnology” shows how fantasy and reality tie into each other with the likes of driverless cars, robots, drones and 3D printers. The exhibit shows visitors how technology has been influenced by movies, books, television, art and futurists, showing the progression from science fiction to science fact.
“We think this is a great way to connect people to science,” Dr. Christian Greer, President and CEO of the Michigan Science Center told MLive. “It’s kind of like if you think about Universal Studios, but if it was more on the learning side, that’s what we have going on here with “POPnology. Anyone who loves movies will fall in love with “POPnology.” So many of us at MiSci are movie and science-fiction geeks, so when we heard this coveted exhibit was available this summer, we jumped on it!”
“POPnology” also allows guests to interact with robots, explore Mars and play games, which include a virtual reality game by Oculus Rift.
“POPnology” is included with Michigan Science Center tickets which are $18 for adults, $14 for youth. Tickets can be purchased here. The Michigan Science Center is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays.

Holmes learned to swim after her son, Genesis, drowned in 2014. She built a pool in his honor and taught other children to swim. Holmes said she never knew the progress of the Genesis Pool would get so far and it's changed her life forever. Now, she is working on a swim team for kids in the Hollywood area. Many of them never would have learned to swim if it wasn't for Jennifer.
Allison Foster, with Charleston County Parks Health and Wellness, says kids will be refining their skills with breaststroke, freestyle. They will also be encouraged to grow confidence in their swimming. The emphasis is on the team.
"We encourage team building and supporting one another in a welcoming environment," Foster said.

Holmes gives the credit to her son Genesis, who she says has guided her every step of the way.
“To be standing here in front of the Genesis pool and to know that there's going to be a swim team, I know in my heart it's going to change lives and I know that God had a major part of this," she said.

Swim team conditioning starts in April and the Genesis Pool will be open for the season on May 6. Holmes says she'll be wearing the number 11 for Genesis because that was his number on his basketball team.
