When it comes to protection, few features are as important as the roof above your head. Your roof is much more than just a hat for your house - it keeps outside elements like rain, sleet, snow, and wind outside so you and your family can stay comfortable and dry inside. A properly maintained roof also helps protect your home's structural integrity, keeps critters out, and insulates your home during cold months. With all that said, it's easy to see why your roof plays such a crucial role in your everyday life. That's why, when your roof needs maintenance or replacement, you need to work with experienced, trustworthy roofers in Aiken, SC.

We would rather invest that money into the best tools and most knowledgeable roofing experts available. That way, we can better serve our customers.
Because, at the end of the day, your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
Your home's roof is exposed to the elements 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. As a homeowner, you probably do your best to keep your roof in good condition with regular maintenance and inspections. However, even properly maintained roofs can be damaged without notice. Mother Nature has her own set of rules, and when she chooses to unleash her power on your roof, there isn't too much you can do.
If your roof is leaking, growing moss, or your shingles are cracked, it's time to call the pros. You need contractors that are efficient, effective, and on-time. That's where Hixon's Roofing comes in.
Hixon's Roofing will provide quality roofing repairs for homes and businesses with all types of roofs. Whether you have a small, single-story home with a minor leak or a sprawling estate with multiple roofing issues, Hixon's will get your roof back to new in no time. It doesn't matter if we installed your roof or not, Hixon's will provide top-notch customer service and the highest quality roofing repairs in Aiken.
While some situations like downed trees require obvious roof repair, it's not always clear when your roof needs some TLC. Keep these common signs in mind the next time you do a visual inspection of your roof:
If the shingles on your roof are cracked or curling, you can safely assume that they are nearing the end of their lifespan. If you notice shingles missing, it's an obvious sign that your roof needs some repair.
Asphalt and composite shingles will shed granules over time, especially when they're starting to wear out. Often, these granules find their way into your gutter system. When you're cleaning your gutters this quarter, keep an eye out for this course, black grit. It's a telltale sign that your roof may need attention or repair.
It's a good idea for every homeowner to check their attics for signs of leaks and general disrepair. While you're up there, look at the ceiling in your attic. If you notice the rafters or decking is sagging towards the ground, you could have a serious problem on your hands caused by a leak. If your roof deck is sagging, call Hixon's as soon as possible for an inspection. If the damage is localized, you can often avoid a full roof replacement.
As a full-service roofing company, our team of expert roofers has installed hundreds of new roofs in South Carolina. Whether you need a metal roof for your secluded home in the woods or a new roof for your commercial business, we're here to make the installation process easy and streamlined.

We keep our clients informed at all times and are happy to provide updates as we make progress on your new roof. While we are installing your new roof, we treat your home or business like our own. You can always count on friendly interactions and a clean and tidy work area. After your new roof is installed, we'll clean up behind ourselves so it's like we were never there.
When you hire Hixon's Roofing to install a roof on your home or business, know that we only use the highest-quality materials and the best construction techniques available.

On top of our unmatched workmanship, clients also receive a 10-year labor warranty on architectural shingles and a 5-year labor warranty on three-tab and metal roofs.
Residential and commercial roofing are similar in that they both require experienced contractors to perform quality work. However, unlike residential roofing (a more straightforward process), commercial roofing projects can be complicated and lengthy. In our experience, there can be dozens of factors to be considered to complete the job correctly. Commercial roofing contractors in Aiken, SC, must account for rooftop HVAC systems, external piping, external utilities, and more. Because commercial roofing structures typically have many layers, it's more difficult to find and remediate leaks. As such, our commercial roofing contractors have different skillsets than residential roofing pros.
Like the residential side of our business, we have completed hundreds of commercial roofing projects in South Carolina. We know exactly what it takes to repair, install, or inspect a commercial roof. When businesses in South Carolina need roofing work, they come to Hixon's Roofing because they know that we will get the job done right the first time. They know that our team is dependable, friendly, and highly qualified to accomplish any commercial roofing project. We're talking roof repairs for small offices to new roof installations on huge, multi-building industrial complexes.
If you're starting a commercial roofing project, don't settle for mediocre roofing contractors. After all, a commercial roofing project can be a huge investment, and you need to get your money's worth. Hixon's is here to exceed your expectations and take on any commercial roofing needs you may have, whether they're minor fixes or major roofing replacements.
At Hixon's Roofing, we make it difficult for any other roofing company to compete with our helpful and professional services.

A lawsuit filed over road maintenance fees collected by the city of Aiken and Aiken County has been dismissed.
William Keesley, a circuit court judge in South Carolina’s 11th Judicial Circuit, issued orders on Aug. 5 and Aug. 8 dismissing the suit filed by Jane Page Thompson and her husband, Mark, on Nov. 2, 2021.
The 11th Judicial Circuit includes Edgefield, Lexington, Saluda and McCormick counties.
Aiken County enacted a road maintenance fee in 1992 and charged $25 per vehicle during the 2020-2021 fiscal year. The city of Aiken enacted a road maintenance fee in 2017 and collected $20 per vehicle during the 2020-2021 fiscal year. Annually, the fees net the county millions of dollars; the city, hundreds of thousands.
The Thompsons filed the suit as individuals shortly after the South Carolina Supreme Court issued its decision in Burns v. Greenville County against Aiken County Administrator Clay Killian, Aiken County Treasurer Jason Goings, Aiken County, the city of Aiken and City Manager Stuart Bedenbaugh.
In Burns, the court determined that the road maintenance fee collected by Greenville County was a tax that violated state law requiring taxes to be value-based property taxes or specifically authorized by the South Carolina General Assembly.
The Thompsons argued in their suit that the road maintenance fees collected by the county and the city were also illegal taxes and that the city and county should have to return the fees they collected and pay penalties for collecting the illegal fees.
In April, the Thompsons conceded to the dismissal of Killian and Bedenbaugh from the suit.
Keesley said in his order dismissing the city defendants the Thompsons conceded that their request to declare the city’s fee illegal was made moot when the city council voted to rescind the fee as of July and to refund any monies collected since.
Bedenbaugh said the city believed it had always acted in good faith regarding the road maintenance fees.
In his order dismissing the county defendants, Keesley said contrary to the plaintiff’s argument that all road maintenance fees were illegal because of Burns, a fee can be legal if set up properly.
Aiken County Council Chairman Gary Bunker said the council always felt the county had a strong case and that they were not surprised by the dismissal.
Also, an act of the South Carolina General Assembly specifically gives cities and counties the ability to collect road maintenance fees. The act was approved by the South Carolina House of Representatives and South Carolina Senate on June 15. Gov. Henry McMaster signed it into law on June 22.
With the issue of whether the taxes were legal settled, Keesley said the court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to litigate disputes over tax refunds.
Subject matter jurisdiction is the authority of a court to hear disputes.
Keesley said disputes over tax refunds are to be decided in administrative court pursuant to the Revenue Procedures Act.
The Thompsons also asked the court to certify a class of all people who paid either the city or county fee.
A class action suit allows many plaintiffs with similar claims against the same defendant or defendants to litigate their claims in one setting. The first step of a class action lawsuit for the court is to determine that a class of people with similar claims exists.
Keesley said in his orders dismissing the case that a class cannot be certified because of a provision in state law, specifically S.C. Code Ann. § 12-60-80(C), that prevents class certification in suits over tax refunds and generally prohibits class action suits against governmental defendants over tax refunds.
The Thompsons have filed motions asking Keesley to reconsider his decision dismissing the cases and to clarify if he meant to dismiss the Thompsons’ individual claims, too.
The judge has not yet ruled on the motions to reconsider.
The Thompsons are also among the plaintiffs named in a suit filed at the Supreme Court challenging the act legalizing road maintenance fees. The city of Aiken has asked to join as a defendant.

At least two current or former members of the South Carolina General Assembly are connected to the litigation over Aiken’s Project Pascalis redevelopment project.
Filings on the S.C. Judicial Department’s website provide information about the attorneys representing the nine people and entities that are plaintiffs in the lawsuit and 40 people and entities named as defendants in the suit.
Project Pascalis is the city’s name for an estimated $75 million redevelopment project focused on the block bounded by Laurens Street, Richland Avenue, Newberry Street and Park Avenue in downtown Aiken.
Current plans call for the demolition of the vacant Hotel Aiken and a building next to it on Laurens Street and the construction of a 100-room hotel in their place. The Holley House and several buildings located between it and Newberry Street would be demolished to make way for an apartment complex and a parking garage. The city’s former municipal building would be expanded into a conference center.
A lawsuit challenging the actions of the Aiken City Council, Aiken Municipal Development Commission, Aiken Design Review Board, RPM Development Partners, Raines Company, Aiken Economic Development Director Tim O’Briant and Aiken City Attorney Gary Smith on the project was filed on July 5.
The plaintiffs in the suit are David Blake, Luis Rinaldini, former City Councilman Dick Dewar, Jenne Stoker, Beatrice McGhee, Gail King, the Historic Aiken Foundation, the Green Boundary Foundation and the South Carolina Public Interest Foundation.
Charleston attorney Andrew Gowder, Summerville attorney Michael Rose and Greenville attorney James Carpenter are listed as attorneys for the plaintiffs.

Carpenter is a sole practitioner.
Daniel Plyler accepted service of the lawsuit on behalf of the city of Aiken, Rick Osbon as mayor and a member of the city council and council members Kay Brohl, Gail Diggs, Ed Girardeau, Andrea Gregory, Lessie B. Price and Ed Woltz on July 15.
Plyler is an attorney in the Columbia office of the Smith Robinson law firm.
South Carolina House Speaker Murrell Smith is a partner in the firm. He works out of the firm’s Sumter offices, according to the firm’s website.
Plyler does not acknowledge that he’s representing the city or the city council in the acceptance of service.
However, Rule 4(j) of the South Carolina Rules of Civil Procedure only allows people or companies that have been sued or their attorneys to submit an acceptance of service.

Aiken, SC (WJBF)- A recurring actor on Netflix’s “Stranger Things” recently garnered a lot of attention locally, when someone noticed he was wearing a vintage South Aiken High School Thoroughbreds t-shirt on the show.
Now, he has turned that attention into an opportunity to give back to Aiken.
Starting Thursday night with a community meet and greet at South Aiken High School, to a nearly sold out Comedy show Friday night, folks have several opportunities to meet comedian, Adam Murray.
NewsChannel 6’s Kim Vickers spoke with him recently and he said the commotion over the t-shirt has been a wild ride.
“I mean, it’s been crazy, because you’d never think a wardrobe decision would lead to all of this.”
When Murray went to be fitted for his costume for his appearance on “Stranger Things” he had no idea what was coming.
He took a photo of himself in front of the TV when Netflix dropped Season 4 of the show and posted it to Reddit. He said it all snowballed from there.
“My friend messaged me and he was like ‘Dude, I wasn’t expecting to be just scrolling along and see your face.’ And I was like ‘Oh, cool. Where did you see me?’ And he was like ‘It was on reddit.’ And I was like ‘Oh, that’s cool man,'” recounted Murray. “And he was like, ‘I’m not even in that sub reddit.’ And I was like ‘Hold on! You mean I made the front page of Reddit?'”
Murray began to get requests for autographs which turned into requests for him to make an appearance in Aiken.
“I originally volunteered to come to Aiken to do a fundraiser for the school. And I had a bunch of people asking for me to do, like when they found out I was a comedian, they wanted me to do a stand up gig. There’s no comedy club in Aiken. So I reached out to the theater.”
South Aiken High School had replicas of the shirt made and began to sell them as a fundraiser to benefit the athletic department. Murray said he wanted to take it a step further.
“I wanted to give to the drama department. Because personally when I was a kid,– I know all the t-shirt stuff was going to the athletic department and they’ve already said they’ve got enough for years to come. I know these programs are typically under funded and so I wanted to try to do a few things like that to help out,” he explained.
He said he is overwhelmed by the excitement and response to his upcoming show.
“The mayor and his friends bought the whole balcony. So they’re gonna be up there. Which, I mean historically I feel like balconies haven’t been so great to public officials.”
Murray’s Thursday night appearance will be at South Aiken High School from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. They will be selling replica t-shirts and watching episodes of “Stranger Things.” Murray will be signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. The event is open to the public.
The comedy show will be at the Amentum Center for Performing Arts Friday night. Ticket’s are $30. The show is nearly sold out. CLICK HERE for tickets.
Saturday afternoon, Murray will make an appearance at South on Whiskey in Aiken for mini golf and a low country boil. CLICK HERE to find out how to get tickets.
GRANITEVILLE, S.C.

GRANITEVILLE, S.C. (WJBF) — The former Graniteville Company mining site is now a golf course for Aiken County kids, teens, and college students.
“This game’s amazing,” USC Aiken Pacer Golf player Gage Weeks told NewsChannel 6’s Aiken Bureau Chief Shawn Cabbagestalk. “You’ll learn a lot, and golf has a lot to do with life as well. It’s not just a game,” he added.
The “Chalk Mine 9” golf facility will be the home of the Pacer Golf program and First Tee – Aiken.
“Our coaches, our volunteers, working with the young people, having opportunities to work with mentors, volunteers who maybe they wouldn’t have had exposure to, otherwise,” First Tee – Aiken Executive Director Heidi Hoffman said.
Graniteville Company’s old mining site was turned into a golf course by three local developers — collectively known as the “Three Amigos.
“We jumped in head first, and it was seven days a week from February of 2021 all the way until November,” designer/developer Gary Frazier said.
“We designed all the greens and built all the bunkers. We grassed it, and we grew it in. So it was a turnkey operation,” he recalled. “I get goosebumps really just being out here today. It’s been great to watch it come to life,” Hoffman added.
The nearly 40 acres include a nine-hole short course, putting greens, a driving range, and a temporary classroom.
“We would normally practice out to Palmetto and after class we would all go out there and practice,” Weeks said.
“This provides us with an amazing opportunity to expand our community programs. So we partner with local church groups, YMCA, and elementary schools to really introduce the game of golf to young people,” Hoffman shared.
A fund-raising campaign raised more than one million dollars for the project.
“I don’t want to get emotional, but what we’ve left behind when we’re long gone long gone is an incredible facility that will only get better with time,” Frazier said.
“It’s really nice to allow, have all these people here that give us this opportunity to have this amazing practice facility. I’m just thankful for everyone that has donated to us and allowed us to have this opportunity,” Weeks said.
