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.

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.

POOLER, Ga. (WTOC) - The Greater Pooler Area Chamber of Commerce is once again offering people the best of both worlds this St. Patrick’s Day.
Providing a space for some family fun, and a way to get down to Savannah without the hassle of driving.
After a successful first year in 2022 the Pooler St. Patrick’s Day Festival will be back at Tanger Outlets this year.
“We have a DJ, I think we have almost 40 vendors, we have food trucks, a kid’s zone. It’s just going to be a really good time and we’re happy to do it for the community,” says Greater Pooler Area Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Courtney Rawlins.
A big win for families and the vendors who get to take part in it.
“It gives our vendors a chance to be public facing, not a lot of them have brick and mortars. It’s all about creating commerce and opportunity for our members. So, the festival, we just had to do it,” says Rawlins.
As they have for years, they’ll again offer you a way to get down to Savannah too.
“The shuttles are back. We’re happy to bring those back. Parking downtown can be a bit of a hassle so we’re happy to make it easy. We have shuttles running from 6:30 am to midnight from Tanger Outlets all day St. Patrick’s Day,” Rawlins explains.
The shuttle does cost, but your ticket gets you access to them all day long.
Just another way the Chamber is encouraging folks to come spend at least part of this St. Patrick’s Day with them in Pooler.
“Pooler’s out here! We’re one of the fastest growing cities in Georgia. We’re happy to do it, a lot of people come here from Savannah. We love everybody so y’all come out to Pooler we’ll show you what we got and have a good time doing it,” Rawlins says.

Savannah State University (SSU) will host its Annual Scholarship Gala on Saturday, April 1 at the Savannah Convention Center. This special event celebrates the rich history of the institution, while providing meaningful opportunities for the community at large to directly impact student success by contributing financial support to the university’s scholarship fund via Gala sponsorships, ticket purchases, and additional monetary gifts.
“More than 60 percent of our students come from families where household income is usually less than $25,000 a year,” said Dr. Shalonda Mullgrav, Interim Vice President for University Advancement. “Couple that with the continued economic impact of the Pandemic on many families, and many of our students need more assistance than ever before.”
Because the need is often greater than the resources available, the Division of University Advancement is offer- ing nine corporate sponsorship opportunities ranging from $1,500 to $50,000, and requesting commitment by March 15. Organizations who share the heart and mission of the university, and would like to have a meaningful and immediate impact on the next generation of Tigers, are encouraged to step up and be a part of this mission-critical work.
In addition to a formal dinner and dancing this year, University President, Kimberly Ballard-Washington, will present deserving members of the Savannah State University community with Awards of Excellence in the following categories:
• Excellence in Arts & Entertainment: Shannon Sharpe• Excellence in Entrepreneurship: Michael Roberson(Savannah Sauce Company,
Inc.)• Excellence in Leadership:Melvin Williams• Excellence in Philanthropy:Frank & Patricia Kabela• Excellence in Scholarship:Beauty Baldwin
The University is excited to have Senator Derek Mallow and Ms. Jenn Darsey serve as the Gala Co-Chairs. Senator Mallow is the current representative for Georgia’s Senate, District 2, and is an SSU alumnus, class of 2020. Ms. Darsey is the Executive Director of the Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless. Both have a deep commitment to the Savannah community.

Donations may also be hand-delivered to the Division of University Advancement located at 5000 Jasmine Ave., Savannah, Ga. 31404.

This commentary is written by Darragh O'Brien, Ireland's minister for housing, local government and heritage. He will represent his country at this week's Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade.
I am honoured to travel to Savannah to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I can think of no better place to celebrate the strength and endurance of Ireland’s ties in the United States. Each year St. Patrick’s Day offers us an opportunity to reconnect with our diaspora and the 70 million people worldwide of Irish background, tens of millions of whom call America home.
Centuries ago Irish emigrants found a welcoming community in Savannah, one that was built on the values of hospitality, cooperation and hard work. They helped to build this city into the thriving port that it is today.
Today, those same values continue to drive the relationship between Ireland and Savannah. We have built strong partnerships in academia, trade, and tourism and we are committed to continuing to deepen and strengthen those partnerships in the years to come.
The relationship between Wexford and Savannah is something truly special. At the height of Irish migration to Savannah, almost 60% of Irish arrivals in Savannah came from Wexford and this historic bond has been nourished and further developed in recent years.
Last year, the signing of the Wexford-Savannah Partnership Agreement by the Chair of Wexford County Council, Barbara-Anne Murphy, and Mayor Van Johnson marked a significant milestone in this relationship. In addition, the Wexford campus of Georgia Southern University welcomed its first students last summer with another cohort due this year. This makes Georgia Southern the first public university in the United States to open a bricks-and-mortar campus in Ireland. A landmark achievement.
These successes, amongst others, are testament to the continued benefits of our collaboration, and evidence of the commitment on both sides of the Atlantic to driving this partnership forward.
This year, we are proud to mark a particularly special St. Patrick’s Day. Ireland is celebrating three major anniversaries that go to the heart of our identity as a country. We mark the centenary of Ireland’s joining of the League of Nations; the 50th anniversary of our accession to the then European Economic Community; and the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. All along the path of our development as an independent nation, our U.S. friends and partners have stood by us and provided support when we needed it.
As we approach the anniversary of the transformational Good Friday agreement, signed in April 1998, we recall in particular the momentous role of the U.S. in helping to bring about peace and an end to the Troubles, as well as their efforts to maintain and nourish that peace in the years that have followed.
As we celebrate 100 years of Ireland in the world, and a century of our country’s engagement as an independent and active member of the international community in the promotion of democracy, peace and security, I want to thank our U.S. partners and our diaspora for being with us on that road.
Looking back on the progress we have made as a country gives us confidence to look forward with hope. The story of Ireland’s bond with Savannah, with Georgia and with the American South is no different – we are rooted in a shared history but looking to the future with optimism for what we can achieve together.
A chairde, in celebration of the road we have travelled together, I wish you all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh go léi.

After recording the second-busiest February in its history, the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) says it now handles one out of every 8.8 loaded twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) container units in the U.S., marking its highest national market share ever.
The Port of Savannah moved 11.4% of the nation’s loaded international containers for fiscal year 2023 through December, with more than 2 million TEUs. That means the GPA’s share of the U.S. container trade showed an increase of 0.7%, the facility said.
Those numbers echo similar results showing that the top 10 North American ports by volume from largest to smallest are Los Angeles, Long Beach, New York/New Jersey, Savannah, Houston, Virginia, Northwest Seaport Alliance, Charleston, Oakland, and Jacksonville. That ranking reflects mid-year 2022 total container volumes (both imports and exports), as recorded by the industrial real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield.
According to Cushman & Wakefield, Savannah had 5.3% more TEUs at mid-year 2022 than 2021, gaining ground on ports that posted losses over that same period, such as Los Angeles, Northwest Seaport Alliance, Oakland, and Jacksonville.
Georgia’s expansion comes as freight flows have shifted from long-standing patterns due to pressures like the pandemic and to sustained port congestion last year off the U.S. West Coast. In addition, retailers are currently ordering less new inventory as they keep a wary eye on consumer spending levels amid high inflation and interest rates, the National Retail Federal says. Together, those forces pushed import cargo volume at the nation’s major container ports to sink near a three-year low point in February.
Against that backdrop, Georgia Ports boosted its portion of U.S. container exports to 12.3% over the period spanning July through December 2022 – up 0.4% compared to the same period in the previous year. On the other side of the ledger, Savannah’s share of the import market rose nearly three-quarters of a point to 11.1% for the fiscal year to date through December.
“Our global economy is facing headwinds, but Georgia’s deepwater ports continue to deliver dependable performance to keep business thriving,” GPA Executive Director Griff Lynch said in a release. “As the nation’s top gateway for American farm and factory exports, the Port of Savannah serves as a hub for global commerce, linking every major ocean carrier calling the U.S. East Coast with superior connections to road and rail.”
