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.

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 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:

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.

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.

The magazine Good Housekeeping picked the 10 best places in the United States to go for spring break.
One is in South Carolina.
Of course, it’s Myrtle Beach. No? Charleston, Hilton Head? Another of the perennial favorite islands like Pawleys or Edisto? No, no, no and no.
Could Greenville be on any more ‘best of’ lists (say that like Joey Tribbiani on “Friends”).
Best place to vacation this year, friendliest, best small city, and one that probably needs to be retired by now, best kept secret, the lists keep coming.
No. 1 on the list was San Diego, which the magazine said, was the closest there was to a one-size fits all families sort of place. No. 2 was Washington, D.C., for “Families who live within driving distance and like to explore museums and historical attractions.”
About Greenville, Good Housekeeping said it was good for families who want a low-key vacation with lots to do. The idea is to avoid the crowds at the coast and “explore Greenville’s charming downtown, extensive park system and world-class attractions, like the seventh-largest children’s museum and a truly one-of-a-kind science center.”
They are referring to The Children’s Museum of the Upstate and Roper Mountain Science Center.
The Children’s Museum, located in a cluster of arts organizations at the edge of downtown, covers 80,000 square feet and is affiliated with the Smithsonian. Twenty-one galleries with construction, Grandma Betty’s farm and grocery shopping among them.
Roper Mountain Science Center is owned by Greenville County Schools and offers a variety of programming for the public, including laser shows, Friday starry nights and summer programs.
Greenville was selected as a winner of the Good Housekeeping 2023 Family Travel Award.
“Greenville takes the stress out of family travel with stroller-friendly walking paths plus a modern, easy-to-navigate airport with more than 100 nonstop flights daily,” the magazine said.
They also mentioned ”family-friendly concerts” presumably Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays, which start this week, and, of course, The Drive, Greenville’s minor league baseball team, which has earned a number of accolades of its own. The park, located in the West End, just past downtown on Main Street, is inspired by Fenway Park in Boston.
A Single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, The Drive was named top single A in 2017 and received the 2020 Bob Freitas Award from Baseball America.
In the where to stay section, Good Housekeeping suggested SpringHill Suites by Marriott Greenville Downtown.
“Our tester was seriously impressed,” the magazine said.
“While you’re checking in, the kids can swing on the egg chairs in the lobby,” our tester said. “There’s also a heated outdoor pool!”
Greenville in recent years has seen a huge boom in hotel construction, especially downtown, with every major hotel chain represented, one more than once.
Greenville City Council had a lot of fun with this new accolade during its meeting Monday night.
Mayor Knox White announced it and took great pride in pointing out that Greenville was ranked higher than Disneyland, which was 10th.
“Stay right here,” White said.
The other cities named were, in order, Phoenix, New York City, Pensacola Beach, New Orleans, Houston and Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic.

Bikers won’t start rolling in to the Myrtle Beach area for the 2023 Atlantic Beach Bike Week for a few months, but now is the perfect time to plan your visit.
While some locals dread the increased traffic and large crowds, thousands of visitors flock to Atlantic Beach during Memorial Day weekend to show off their motorcycles and enjoy the South Carolina coast.
Here are the answers to five frequently asked questions about this year’s Bike Fest.
The Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Black Pearl Cultural Heritage and Bike Festival will take place Memorial Day weekend: May 26 through 29. The event, also known as Black Bike Week or Atlantic Beach Bike Fest, has been held since 1980.
“Bikers and non-bikers are welcome,” said Atlantic Beach town manager, Benjamin Quattlebaum. He encouraged visitors in 2023 to “come out and patronize the event, they’ll find it very enjoyable.”
Quattlebaum also hopes to see more bikers from outside of the area, thanks to an increased marketing budget from a Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce and Horry County grant.
Quattlebaum was encouraged by the increase in interest from retail and food vendors this year. He hopes to entice motorcycle companies to sell their items at the festival.
Live music schedules and vendor plans will be released in the coming weeks. Keep in the loop by checking the Town of Atlantic Beach website.
Stay up to date on Atlantic Beach Bike Week plans by following the Black Bike Week Facebook page and checking out the resources on the Black Bike Week website.
Horry County hosts three large motorcycle events each year. The Myrtle Beach Spring Rally will take place May 12 to 21. The 2023 Fall Rally will take place from Oct. 2 to 8.

The city is looking to do away with the dual roles of lifeguards, which includes watching the beaches while also renting out beach gear.
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Lifeguard duties in the Grand Strand may be different in the coming summer months.
Previously, Myrtle Beach city leaders talked about changing the dual roles of lifeguards. Now they’re one step closer to a decision when it comes to beach safety.
During Tuesday’s city council meeting, members got a first look at what it would mean to change the structure of lifeguarding.
“This amendment would allow the lifeguard companies to have lifeguard-only people,” said Mark Kruea, Spokesperson for the city. “In other words, people who only did the lifeguards and then they had a separate person or people that would do the beach chair and umbrella rentals.”
The city currently uses two private beach service companies to provide lifeguards for the 60 miles of beach.
These men and women are currently responsible for monitoring the beaches and renting out beach gear like umbrellas and chairs to beachgoers. Kruea said the city has adopted methods from other municipalities for decades, which is why the potential new change is something he said the city feels is necessary, along with recommendations from the United States Lifesaving Association.
“It recommends that you have lifeguard only and then if there’s a retail component that a separate person other than the lifeguards do that retail component and that’s the direction we’re moving towards with today’s vote,” said Kruea.
All council members were in unison with making a change.
“This is a huge improvement for public safety in the city of Myrtle Beach,” said Myrtle Beach City Councilman John Krajc. “And I would definitely like to say thank you to both franchisees for being willing and open to increase public safety on our beach.”
Kruea shared the same sentiments.
“I think the franchises realized that this was the direction that they needed to move it certainly the direction that the City Council has indicated we need to move in so that we provide you know good safety on the beaches through lifeguards who have no other job but to watch the water.”
Myrtle Beach City Council will take a second look at future plans for lifeguards before making a decision at the next council meeting on March 28.

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Freedom Boat Club has members of all experience levels, but according to vice president of operations Karen Berry, most are newcomers.
“For the most part, it’s people who have never boated a day in their life,” said Berry.
Those who join the club must go through an extensive training process, including online and in-person courses and one-on-one training with a licensed captain on the water.
“That’s our number one priority, is showing our new members the safety stuff on the boat,” said Captain Cody Massey. “We don’t want them to get out there and be able to drive a boat good, but then if something does happen, not be able to protect themselves or others.”
Although boat safety training is required at Freedom Boat Club, it is not required everywhere. Freedom Boat Club leadership says they often see people on the water without proper training.
“They either just get a boat or try to rent a boat from somewhere, and they don’t know any rules of the road for the water or anything you should probably learn,” said Massey. “So when they get out there, they’re a hazard to others.”
In a statement to WMBF News, a spokesperson from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources said the organization has “always emphasized to the boating public the importance of boating safety and the personal responsibility of individuals enrolling in boating safety courses.”
The North Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad just announced it will be offering boating safety courses for organizations who request them. They say their goal is always to educate the public.
“We’re just a group of citizens that love to serve our fellow citizens,” said rescue squad spokesperson Greg Richardson at a public safety meeting Monday night.
SCDNR added that “informed and experienced boaters are always better boaters.”
“Whenever you drive a car, you don’t get behind the wheel without taking a driver’s ed class and having to pass a test and things like that,” said Berry. “So why would they allow people to get behind the wheel of a boat without taking some kind of boater safety course?”
Organizations interested in receiving training from the NMB Rescue Squad can reach out on the website, or Facebook or call (843)-272-3144.
