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 Hanahan, SC.

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 Hanahan.
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.
The flashing around your chimney, skylight, and attic vents is a seal that keeps rain and other elements outside of your home. However, with time, flashing can crack or even break, which will lead to a leak in your home. This is most common in older homes that have flashing made of tar or cement. For many homeowners, the prospect of climbing up on a roof to check flashing isn't an option. In that case, you should call a team of professional roofers to inspect for you.
Moss can add some charming character to your home, but in most cases, if you see moss growth, it means trouble. Moss (like fungi and mold) indicates that there could be moisture trapped in your roof's structure. When left untreated, this moisture can ruin your roof. You can get rid of the moss by using a stiff brush to wipe it away but be sure you address any underlying problems as well.
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.

Once we have defined the project's details, our roof installation professionals will get to work on your home or business. Unlike some roofing companies in Hanahan, Hixon's is transparent about every step of the installation process. 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. That way, you'll have a fantastic-looking roof that will last for decades. 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 Hanahan, 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.

Ken Hilliard and Dawn Verbarg — better known as Blazin’ Bullets Barbeque — scored an impressive fourth place finish in this year’s prestigious Master Barbeque Awards competition sponsored by the South Carolina Barbeque Association (SCBA). The couple is no stranger to SCBA awards, having finished in the top five in 2017 and 2018, and in the top 10 in 2016.
Tail-Gater Hater, a cook team from Lake City fronted by pit master Phillip Miles, won first place — along with the right to be called the 2022 State Barbeque Champion — in the barbeque (butts) category for the second year in a row and for the third time in the last four years. The team also won the ribs category for second consecutive year. Due to COVID and the cancellation of contests, the SCBA did not name winners for 2020.
Rounding out the 2022 winners circle for the top barbeque cook teams were:
Second Place: Monkey Bottom Boys led by pit master George Ray from Scranton;
Third Place: Casual Smokers, led by pit master Jamie Mintz from Spartanburg;
Fifth Place: All Smoked Up, led by pit master Gary Taylor from Lexington.
Each team received a trophy presented by SCBA President Jim Wellman on Saturday, January 28, on the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia. The top three winners also earned a cash award. For the ribs category, only the top finisher is recognized with a trophy, as many contests do not include a ribs category.
To contend for the 2022 title, cook teams had to participate in at least eight barbeque contests. During these contests, most often held in conjunction with local festivals and nonprofits fundraisers, SCBA-certified judges scored the contestants’ meat — prepared overnight and on-site — in five categories: taste, appearance, texture, aroma and overall impression.
Competition is intensely fierce, as top scorers often place within one-hundredths of a percentage point of each other. The 2022 field included 123 different cook teams from throughout the state.
SCBA’s 2023 competition season kicks off in late February and runs through November. Cook teams will have plenty of chances to secure a top spot for this year’s awards, as the SCBA anticipates providing judging for more than 25 events around the state. To vie for the 2023 award, cook teams must enter at least 10 events. Cook teams interested in entering contests should check the SCBA’s website (www.scbarbeque.com) for upcoming events.
Individuals interested in becoming certified SCBA judges should also check the website for upcoming judges’ seminars. The next seminar is planned for February 18 in Columbia. Plans are also underway for one to be help in the Upstate later this year.
Founded in 2004, the South Carolina Barbecue Association is a not-for-profit organization that exists to train the best barbeque judges in the world and to preserve and promote the unique nature of South Carolina barbeque. In 2011, the South Carolina Legislature designated the SCBA as the official organization to name the South Carolina State Barbeque Champion.
Community members gathered at the American Legion Post 166 headquarters on the afternoon of Feb. 5 to commemorate the heroic and selfless acts of a group of men who sacrificed their lives rescuing civilian passengers and military personnel as an American troop ship, the SS Dorchester, sank on February 3, 1943. These four brave individuals will forever be known as the Four Chaplains. The SS Dorchester was used for troop transport in World War II. The large vessel was hit by a German torpedo, prompting its immediate evacuation. The attack is considered the second-worst sea disaster of the Second World War. The Four Chaplains were comprised of George Lansing Fox of Lewistown, Pennsylvania; Rabbi Alexander David Goode of Brooklyn, New York; Clark Vandersall Poling of Columbus, Ohio and John Patrick Washington of Newark, New Jersey.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Sometimes, in the toughest of times, it’s the littlest thing from the most unlikely place.
“My purpose in life has always been to look after kids and their purpose,” North Charleston High School (NCHS) assistant coach and Lowcountry native Ray Mullins said. “Help them grow confidence. Coaching the game, I fell in love with the game. Gave me confidence and I tried to instill confidence in kids who needed places to grow.”
Mullins graduated from Hanahan. Played for Lander. He’s coached in the area for over two decades.

“Coach Ray, I am forever grateful for him,” Summerville native and Pinewood Prep grad Michael Wright said. “There is a short list of coaches. Coach Eidson, my dad, who impact a player, and Ray was one of those guys. The moment I walked into the gym, he took me under his wing and believed in me as a basketball player.”
Their bond is deeply rooted. But, lives move on. Wright went to Pinewood Prep. He played AAU basketball for Mullins as a 15 year old. Wright is now a fifth year graduate student at University of Illinois Springfield. He plans on playing professional basketball overseas. Mullins, now teaching and coaching at NCHS, the place where his life forever changed less than a year ago.
“I was in Mr. Darby’s office at NCHS when I found out - they just told me - stage 4,” he said. “You think about life. You think about how things are going to work out - you hear stage 4. Nowadays, stage 4 isn’t a good thing to hear, but with technology and people wanting to support, there is a plan out there for you.”
Just as cancer spreads, so does word of it. (WCIV)
Just as cancer spreads, so does word of it.
“Terrible,” Wright said. “I remember finding out through Facebook. Something he had gone through. Somebody who cares so much about community and given so much to community through basketball, to have something like that effect their life, never like to see that.”
So, Wright took his emotions into his own hands. Literally. During the “Coaches versus cancer” night - he held up a sign. It simply said, “I suit up for Ray Mullins”.

“It’s humbling to me, brings me hope, great things in humanity,” Mullins said. “He did surprise me with the salute at the game the other night - super proud of him and what he’s become as a man. Just super proud. Gives me hope, doesn’t allow me to quit- didn’t know what quitting was until I started this chemo thing. They say not to quit, stay strong.”
“I got too much to pay it forward for, it’s not just about me,” he continued. “About kids I’m coaching. Kids that are fighting the same fight against cancer.”
In basketball terms, impact, is a “give and go”.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Hanahan has their new head football coach.
The school announced on Tuesday afternoon that Georgia Southern staff member Milan Turner has been named the new head man for the Hawks.
Turner replaces Art Craig who was placed on leave in the middle of last season. Earlier on Tuesday a Berkeley County School District Spokesperson said Craig has now retired from BCSD.
Turner had been working as the Director of High School Relations at Georgia Southern but has a great deal of experience as a head coach as well.
In 28 years of coaching, Turner has coached in six state championship games for five different high schools around Georgia. Among his accolades are North/South All-Star Head Coach, Region Coach of the Year, Atlanta Touchdown Club Class A Coach of the Year, GACA Class A State Coach of the Year, and was selected to coach in the 2008 Under Armour national all-star game.
“First, I would like to thank Coach Clay Helton and Georgia Southern University for the incredible opportunity I had to serve this year on the football staff,” Turner said in a statement released by the school. “I want to also thank Principal Tom Gallus, Athletic Director Kim Joseph, the search committee, and the Berkeley County Board of Education for this incredible opportunity to be a teacher and head football coach at Hanahan High School. I am extremely excited for the future of our school and athletic program. I cannot wait to get to work with our team and to meet the Hanahan community. Wendi and I feel extremely blessed!”
“We are elated to welcome Coach Turner to the Hawk family,” Hanahan Principal Tom Gallus said. “Our community is very fortunate to have a coach of this caliber to lead and develop our student-athletes on and off the field. Coach Turner is a proven educator and leader. He knows what it takes to build a successful high school football program and to ensure that each student is prepared for their next steps after high school. I look forward to serving alongside Coach Turner and seeing our Hawks shine under the Friday night lights.”
Hanahan becomes the 3rd school in the Lowcountry to hire a new head coach this offseason joining Northwood Academy and Colleton County. First Baptist, North Charleston, Berkeley and Ft. Dorchester are still looking for replacements.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCSC) - After being reelected for another term on Tuesday, Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater is already preparing for the next four years.
In this year’s election, no opponents ran against Rainwater, which she says was a relief to not sit on the edge of her seat and worry about winning or not.
“I feel like the residents of the city have seen the work I’ve put in, and they want that to keep going,” she says. “They want the momentum to continue, and no one ran against me. I’m able to really continue keeping that momentum going.”
The Hanahan City Council and school board members were all reelected on Tuesday, and the mayor says will continue as a strong partnership because of the established relationships.
Similar to the rest of the Lowcountry, Hanahan continues to grow. Rainwater focused on building economic development and recreation in the area by adding two new parks over the last four years.
“Really bringing this quality of life to the residents is what we’ve been doing over the past four years and will continue to do over the next four,” she says.
As for the upcoming four years, the mayor really wants to focus on flooding concerns, more economic growth and additional housing for the community. She also mentioned that the Lowcountry Rapid Transit plans include four stops that will positively impact Hanahan.
“We are really looking at our specifically downtown area and how can we allow for housing that will work for everyone,” Rainwater says. “We have changed the ordinances over the past few years that will allow for us to build up a little higher and bring that in.”
The mayor also expressed that Hanahan has a small-town feel despite being the seventeenth-largest city in South Carolina.
“I like to say I bleed blue and orange,” she says. “Hanahan is the heart of the Lowcountry. When you look at its location, you’ve got downtown Charleston, Summerville, Mount Pleasant, West Ashley, and right in the heart, you’ll find Hanahan. The truth is, it’s not just because of its location; the people in Hanahan are so special.”

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – The owner of a fitness training company in Hanahan that has been working with kids and adults for a few years is calling on the community to help keep his business open.
Kendrick Robinson opened The Factory Sports and Fitness Training in Hanahan a year before the coronavirus pandemic hit the United States to help train people in basketball, football, and other athletics.
“It was something that God brought to me. He gave me a vision,” said Robinson. “I wanted to have a facility where the youth in our community could (better) selves and have a safe place where they can come and train.”
“He always helps out. He helps out with kids like schoolwork and stuff like that before training,” said Christian Gray, who has been coming to the program for four years.
Robinson said working with the youth is his passion. But things have been tough financially, he said.
“Our rates are really not expensive, but if they’re not able to do training, we try to do charitable giving would give out free sessions,” explained Robinson.
He went on to say, “We kind of gotten [sic] to a rough patch since Covid. We had a business plan, and it kind of altered all of that, and we’ve been playing catch-up ever since.”
Robinson decided Sunday to let the public know they might have to close next month and started a GoFundMe in hopes of finding some assistance.
“Not something I wanted to go public with, but closed mouths don’t get fed. God revealed that to me, he told me to make sure I keep this place open and get the help that we needed from the community. The response has been, man amazing.”
More than $2,500 has already come in from the community, of the $10,000 they need.
“It’s been amazing to get all the feedback and support from the supporters we’ve had over the years and knowing that we’re doing the right thing just by being transparent with the community and letting them know that it hasn’t always been easy.”
