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 Isle of Palms, 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 Isle of Palms.
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.

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 Isle of Palms, 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. For more information about our company and what we can do for your home or business, contact our office in Isle of Palms. Our customer service reps have the knowledge and information to answer your questions and get the ball rolling on your roofing project in South Carolina today.Contact Us

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCSC) - A volunteer organization is encouraging others to help with litter removal on Isle of Palms.
The Isle of Palms Cleanup Crew will be holding its first of six litter cleanups, the Spring Litter Sweep series, on Monday and they’re encouraging others in the community to participate.
Co-founder Susan Hill Smith said volunteers collected 60,000 pieces of litter during cleanups last year. That’s a 130% increase over 2021.
She says common litter items found on the beach and commercial areas are plastics such as bottle caps, food wrappers, lids, and straw wrappers.
Smith said one litter item remains at the top of the list even though it is prohibited and that is cigarettes.
Organizers say 44% of litter items collected on the beach, streets, sidewalks, and parking lots last year were smoking-related litter items.
“Cigarette litter is our number one both on the beach and on the streetscape even though on the beach the city council passed and adopted in 2020 a law against smoking on the beach,” Smith said. “We’ve seen a decrease in cigarette litter as far as our totals. But that’s still cigarette litter is still our number one and that has both toxic chemicals and plastic threads in it.”
The group has entered a partnership with the South Carolina Aquarium to document their litter data through the aquarium’s Citizen Science app. The app allows citizen scientists to document observations in the area. They said the aquarium reports at the turtle hospital showed a remarkable increase in the amount of plastic they’re seeing ingested by their patients.
Smith said the crew was founded in 2018 after concerns about litter and pollution problems on the beach and how that was affecting both the beach and ocean ecosystems as well as public health and really just wanted to help keep their islands beautiful and protect the area.
Smith encourages avoiding bringing disposable items to the beach and keeping track of beach ordinances prohibiting single-use items.
If you are interested in joining the clean-up crew the first meeting is 5:30 p.m. Monday at 1100 Ocean Boulevard.
More information on the group and future cleanup dates can be found on their Facebook page.

Immersive excursions on the Rappahannock River, also known as “the oyster capital of the Chesapeake Bay,” offer guests a delicious dash of science at Virginia’s Tides Inn resort. Before taking part in one of the guided trips, many people relate to oysters only as a food source, says Will Smiley, the inn’s staff ecologist. “All leave with a better understanding of oysters’ ecological importance and their ability to filter water.” Afterwards, visitors slurp the roasted bivalves at the oyster education dock, which overlooks the bay and resort. On the crabbing jaunt, guests bait a pot, pull up a full one, and enjoy the Old Bay–enhanced fruits of their labor.

Broadfield, the nearby sporting club and lodge, offers 5,800 acres of woods and a bass-rich lake along with a sporting clays course, quail hunting, and falconry.
Isle of Palms, South Carolina
Set amid 1,600 acres of barrier islands northeast of Charleston, this Atlantic oceanfront resort tempts you to explore waves and beaches by pedal and paddle. Try kayaking with dolphins, ocean fishing, paddle boarding, or taking a naturalist-guided boat tour to an undeveloped island. Your artsy side can dip into painting classes, sweetgrass basket weaving, or just studying nature’s majesty beneath the live oaks.
This newly opened resort just twenty miles north of Nashville emphasizes the 325-acre site’s farming roots with wellness and adventure offerings. Traverse their trails on mountain and e-bikes or get a birds’ eye view during your workout on the aerial obstacle course that winds through the woods. Deepen your bee knowhow by hiking hillsides with a honeybee keeper, or trace your food’s journey from seed to plate with both a farmer and a chef. David Mishkin, the executive property manager, recommends trying one of the falconry experiences, too. “The birds are flying free above your head,” he says. “It almost takes you back in time.”

The South Carolina Department of Transportation is asking residents to weigh in on a preferred concept for the Isle of Palms Connector restriping project. At the transportation committee meeting on Feb. 6, Mount Pleasant council members discussed a new alternative concept presented by town staff that includes a larger multiuse path compared to SCDOT’s concepts.
The Town’s concept includes a 14-foot multiuse path on the south side of the bridge (left shoulder when facing Mount Pleasant) with designated bike and pedestrian lanes, a four-foot buffer between the path and traffic and two 11-foot vehicle lanes with an 11-foot median in the middle. The median provides space for emergency vehicles to pass through, and it could be used as an additional westbound lane off of the island for planned special events or evacuations.
“The main change that was proposed as part of that concept was actually to provide a wider pedestrian lane and a wider bicycle lane, separating those uses,” said James Aton, the deputy director for capital projects and transportation for the Town.
At the base of the connector on the Mount Pleasant side, there’s an option to restripe the road to include two westbound lanes leaving the island.
The Town’s concept is similar to SCDOT’s Concept 3, except SCDOT proposes a 10-foot multiuse path with a six-foot buffer and the median between the two travel lanes is 10 feet. SCDOT’s Concept 4 is a mirror of Concept 3 with the bike and pedestrian lane on the other side of the roadway. However, both municipalities favor the bike and pedestrian lane on the south side of the bridge – in Mount Pleasant it allows cyclists and pedestrians to easily access shopping, restaurants and nearby apartments and the Isle of Palms has infrastructure in place to gather pedestrians on that side.
SCDOT presented five concepts in front of the Isle of Palms city council on Dec. 13 and the Mount Pleasant transportation committee on Jan. 3.
SCDOT’s Concept 1 includes a 10-foot bike and pedestrian lane on the south side of the connector, a six-foot buffer, two 11-foot travel lanes with a four-foot paved median in the center and a 10-foot shoulder on the north side of the bridge. Concept 2 is a mirror of Concept 1.
The first four concepts presented by SCDOT do not add capacity to the connector. On a typical travel day, the center median lane or shoulder lane would be used in emergency situations, whether its drivers pulling over for an emergency vehicle or first responders moving an accident out of the way. It would not be used for travel except for planned special events.
Concept 5 presented by SCDOT creates two westbound travel lanes leaving the island to help reduce travel time on the bridge, especially during the busy summer months. This concept includes the 10-foot multiuse path with a five-foot buffer area on the south side of the bridge.
Another option is to leave the current configuration as is. The Isle of Palms Connector was restriped early 2021 to provide more safety for cyclists and pedestrians. The existing configuration includes bike and pedestrian paths on each side of the bridge in a single direction with a 3.5-foot buffer on each side. There are two 11-foot travel lanes with a 4-foot paved median in the center. Additionally, the speed limit went from 55 to 45 mph.
“The benefits of that [configuration] is you’re separating direction of travel for bikes and pedestrians, sort of improving the overall safety of the interaction of those users,” said Aton.
The main goal for revisiting the restriping, initiated by the City of the Isle of Palms, was to assess emergency vehicle response times and find a solution for traffic leaving the island. Police and fire chiefs for both Mount Pleasant and the Isle of Palms said there have not been any issues getting emergency vehicles through the connector and there have not been any delays in response times.
“It’s not something we’ve seen as an issue,” said Mount Pleasant Fire Chief Mike Mixon, “but [a median lane] would keep the cars from having to move to the side.”
The SCDOT survey opened Jan. 17 and closes after 30 days. To provide input on SCDOT’s five concepts, visit http://bit.ly/3YJMtOZ.
Seven Lucy Beckham High School student athletes signed letters of intent to play their sport at the collegiate level.
“I have the privilege to be around these student athletes who have worked hard at all those practices,” said Athletic Director Scott McInnes at the signing ceremony on Feb. 9. He acknowledged the sacrifices the parents of student athletes make throughout the four years.
Each coach shared a few words about the athletes, plus the athletes had an opportunity to thank family and friends for helping them reach this goal.

This post represents the first installment in a DawgNation series this spring featuring the “Next Generation” of Georgia football players from the 2023 signing class. 5-star Monroe Freeling ranks as the nation’s No. 5 OT and the No. 33 overall prospect for 2023 on the 247Sports Composite ratings and the On3 Industry Ranking.
It is a fall Friday night in coastal South Carolina. The palms in the Palmetto State are swaying. There’s a blissful breeze drifting inland.
Oceanside Collegiate Academy is coming out for the second half. We fix our eyes on a Bunyanesque offensive tackle walking out.
Monroe Freeling offers a unique visual. His weight ranged between 290 and 295 pounds for his senior season.
South Carolina measured Freeling at 6 feet, 7 inches with no socks on. The Gamecocks offered him before he played his first varsity game as a sophomore.
He’s big and long and lean. Like a walking parenthesis in size-16 cleats. Freeling will not take up a lot of space. But he’ll eclipse everything in front of him.
With that second half about to follow, we keep our eyes on Freeling.
The rest of the team is getting warm. Running in place. He had to hang back a bit from the rest of the team. Probably needed more tape. That’s what head coach Chad Wilkes thinks.
Those two have a quick word.
“Alright Monroe,” Wilkes says. “Go stretch.”
“Do you mind if I just do yoga?” Freeling replies.
Wilkes did not. His 4-star OT can indeed do yoga if that’s what he needs. As long as he goes back out and physically dominates opponents and finishes every block with domination on his mind.
It was no random request. Freeling’s mother, Brandy, had established a tradition of doing yoga with the team on Fridays in the season. She started Monroe on yoga after his freshman season.
“It is all about knowing your body coach,” Monroe Freeling said to Wilkes at the moment.
Freeling takes that discipline very seriously.
“It helps a lot,” Freeling said this past season. “Even if you don’t really do it that often. Even if you just kind of get in a little rhythm of it. You can know exactly where your body hurts and how to fix it. That’s the biggest thing because a lot of players will hurt and go to a trainer and will say they are hurting. This way, a lot of the time I can just go ‘Hmm I know where I hurt. I know the way I hurt my body. I know how to fix it and I can stretch it out’ and then coordination-wise and obviously flexibility wise it helps a great deal, too.”
“But for me, the biggest thing was body awareness and knowing where I hurt and how I can stay healthy for a long time.”
Get you a Left Tackle that can lead a yoga session after a long road trip!!! pic.twitter.com/CuOhv21y4L— Chad Wilkes (@CoachChadWilkes) November 25, 2022
It’s a tool for him to succeed.

‘Southern Charm’ Drama: Austen Kroll Hooks Up with Shep’s Ex Taylor Ann Green
Southern Charm stars, Taylor Ann Green and Austen Kroll, hooked up “at the start” of filming Season 9.
“Taylor has almost gone through the whole cast, minus Craig,” one source dished to Page Six.
Insiders told the outlet that Austen and Taylor are going to “try and say they only made out,” but as the season unfolds the steamy encounter will be “revealed to be more than that.”
Austen dated Taylor’s close friend, Olivia Flowers, for about six months, and fans know that Taylor, 28, was involved in an exclusive relationship with Austen’s buddy and co-star, Shep Rose, for two years.
“[Season 9] is gonna be about her,” the snitch dished.
The source alleged that Taylor was “screaming and crying and yelling in front of all the guests” during one cast gathering.
Shep, 43, is reportedly “fine” with Taylor hooking up with his best pal and is even “defending” his ex amid the Charleston chatter. Taylor and Shep’s relationship ended at the conclusion of Season 8 filming season, after Shep refused to let go of his bachelor lifestyle.
“[He] refused to commit to Taylor, telling her that he doesn’t want to be with just one person and change his lifestyle,” an insider told People, last summer.
Olivia, 30, who shares a close relationship with Taylor, is “aware [of the situation], but she’s had bigger issues to deal with,” the source said, making reference to the tragic death of her brother, Connor Flowers, last month.
Flowers, 32, passed away on January 30, at his Isle of Palms residence, outside Charleston, SC. Olivia appeared to share a close relationship with her brother, as each shared photos of the other on their respective Instagram pages.
The outlet’s sources hinted that the other women on the cast are trying to distance themselves from the drama surrounding Taylor, as filming season rolls on.
“The girls don’t f–k with her because they know she’s crazy and will do anything to climb the ladder,” an insider claimed.
There are other circulating rumors alleging that Taylor also hooked up with Southern Charm creator and cast member, Whitney Sudler-Smith.
Austen, Taylor, Whitney, Olivia, Craig and Venita Aspen recently took off for Jamaica—but it appears that Shep stayed behind. Olivia shared a video of Austen, Whitney and Craig on train during the cast getaway.
Austen was asked if he would ever consider dating Shep’s ex, in an October interview with Us Weekly.
“I mean, I love Taylor to pieces, and I cherish her friendship, and we’ve gotten very close,” he said at the time. “She’s an important person in my life, and I wanna keep it that way.”
“I just think that would be crossing a whole bunch of lines, and a bunch of friendships would really be affected by that. I’m telling you that would be a fricking [sic] bomb to drop, that is for sure,” he added.
