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.

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.

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 Johns Island, 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.

JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Two fake stop signs have been found in one James Island neighborhood, which the mayor says has caused confusion and controversy between town officials and locals.
A neighbor’s security camera captured the Town of James Island’s public works department removing the illegal stop signs from the corner of Clearview Drive and Tennant Street on Oct. 21.
“You cannot put your own stop signs out. You can always come to the town and make a request, and it will always be merited,” Mayor Bill Woolsey said. “We won’t often be able to put them up, but you can’t put them up yourself, and how we respond is we immediately contact SCDOT. We would have been very surprised if they put a stop sign out there without telling us beforehand.”
A worker could be seen wiggling one of the signs a couple of times before lifting it out of the ground and placing it in the back of a truck.
Not only were the signs put in illegally, according to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, but the ground next to the street was painted with white stop bars, as well.
“It’s the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I hope it doesn’t spread,” Woolsey said. “[I’m surprised] someone would come and paint a line in the road and buy some online stop signs and install them themselves in the middle of the night or early in the morning.”
Deputies said they were patrolling the area the night before and didn’t see any new signs, but when they went back the next day, they said the signs, which were apparently purchased online, had been put in overnight.
The South Carolina Department of Transportation has also confirmed they have not installed any stop signs at the intersection.
Neighbors initially thought the stop signs were put in by DOT to help with speeders and said the fake signs hurts their ability to address the issue.
“I guess somebody duped us, and they were putting in fake stop signs,” neighbor Jim Boyd said. “They looked to all of us legitimate and 100% real. We are just in favor of anything and everything that we can get people to slow down. Yes, we understand first responders need to get here quickly as well, but we want everything and anything.”
However, Woolsey said he believes the signs did not pop up at random.
“If we find out who did it, they will be charged, and we believe that, most likely, it was someone who lives close by,” he said.
Woolsey also said there was a recent incident where an illegal speed bump was found and removed near the intersection. He said the speed bump had black and yellow stripes and was similar to one found in parking lots across the Lowcountry.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) — A piece of history is coming to John’s Island as a new mural honoring Lowcountry civil rights activists is set to be unveiled in a Wells Fargo Wednesday.
Johns Island has a rich history in the civil rights movement with the “mother of the civil rights movement" Septima Clark born and raised on the island. It’s people like Clark and pioneers like Esau Jenkins who this mural is dedicated to.
The mural is a collection of images of Clark and Jenkins during their time on Johns Island, as well as folk singer Guy Carawan, who wrote "We Shall Overcome" and golf pioneer Henry Picard.
Wells Fargo partnered with local historic societies and libraries to get the images pictured in the mural. The company unveils around 10 to 15 murals a year across the country each year.
While the image resides within the walls of the bank, officials said they want to create a common space for residents with a little touch of history.
“Our purpose is to be a gift back to the community, But also to educate the current clientele and future children of current customers about the importance of their community and its contribution to the civil rights movement, “ Cross Enterprise Initiatives Director for Wells Fargo Beth Curry said.
Clark helped developed literacy and citizenship workshops which played a huge role in the drive for voter’s rights among African Americans in the 1900s. Esau Jenkins is one of the most influential people in the history of the Johns Island. He founded many organizations to improve educational and economic wealth of minority’s in the area during the 1900s.
Guy Carawan wrote “We Shall Overcome," which was a staple song during the civil rights movement and Henry Picard who won the 1938 masters and 1939 PGA Championship, becoming the first golfer from the Lowcountry to do so.
Designers said the impacts these natives have had on Johns Island and the Lowcountry is something which needs to be acknowledged more in the area.
“We really want to make sure that these people are renowned for the current generation, so that they know from whence they come, their community is so important. And it is different than Charleston. I mean, obviously, Charleston, it's a suburb of Charleston, but you want it to be known for its own history and legacy," Curry said.
The unveiling was scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. Bill Jenkins, the son of Esau Jenkins, and Nerie Clark, the grandson of Septima Clark, were expected to be in attendance.

Three years ago, James Island had a mediocre football program.
The Trojans finished the season 5-5 and were searching for an identity under first-year head coach Jamar McKoy.
In three short seasons, McKoy, who came to the James Island from Hunter Huss High School in Gastonia, N.C., has built the Trojans into one of the best programs in the Lowcountry.
Liam Nixon threw for 187 yards and Amor Scott scored two touchdowns to lead James Island past York, 32-14, on Nov. 4 before a raucous crowd at The Backyard at James Island Charter School.
The Trojans (10-1) will face Irmo, a 14-7 winner over North Myrtle Beach, at home on Nov. 11 in the second round of the Class AAAA playoffs.
“To win this time of year, you’ve got to play great football and win all three phases of the game,” McKoy said. “I thought we played a complete game in all three phases. Offense was able to move the ball, the defense bent a little bit, but didn’t break and the kicking game connected on some big field goals.
“It takes that kind of effort to win this time of year. We made some plays on both sides of the ball when we needed it the most.”
A week ago, the Trojans won their first region title since 1995. James Island’s playoff win was its first postseason victory since a 56-55 victory against Wren in 2009.
“This is a huge win for us, for the program and for James Island,” said James Island linebacker Walker Woodall, who finished with eight tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss. “We’ve been working toward this all season, especially the seniors.
“We were 5-5 my first season and to be where we are now is crazy. The players have put in the work, watched a lot of film and now all the hard work is paying off.”
The Trojans hadn’t played many close games during the regular season. Coming into the game, James Island had outscored its first 10 opponents, 402-62.
And while the Trojans jumped out to a 22-0 lead — on two short TD runs by Scott and another by Tykell Maxwell in the first half — the Cougars made things interesting in the second half.
Tristan Barnett came off the bench and threw for 193 yards to get the Cougars back into the game.
“You have to give (York) a lot of credit,” McKoy said. “They used another quarterback and we didn’t expect that. He threw some good balls and they didn’t quit.”
York’s Aiden Davis closed the gap to 22-7 on the first play of the fourth quarter with a 1-yard TD run.
But James Island answered when Gray Dangerfield connected on a 48-yard field goal with 9:13 to play in the game to give the Trojans a 25-7 advantage.
“That was a big field goal for us,” McKoy said. “Gray has a strong leg. We were confident he could make it from there.”
Barnett scored on a 10-yard run to narrow the Trojans’ lead to 25-14 with 7:42 to play.
The Trojans put the game away when Cam’Ron Williams recovered a Barnett fumble in the end zone for the final margin of victory.
“We want to play games in December, that’s the goal,” McKoy said. “Right now, we’re not worried about records of milestones. We want to play for state championships.”

NORTH CHARLESTON — A man provided Charleston County deputies with a different name before he took off running across several lanes of a major road and jumping from an overpass.
Kelvin Cole, 56, died Oct. 28 after being struck by multiple cars on Interstate 26. Investigators later determined he had active arrest warrants from Charleston County’s Family Court and the S.C. Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services.
Cole, who lived and worked as a welder in Johns Island, was riding in the passenger seat of a car when a deputy stopped it for alleged traffic violations. The car’s 31-year-old driver was ultimately given a warning.
Attempts to reach Cole’s family Nov. 2 were unsuccessful.
The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office released an incident report Nov. 2, several days after Cole’s death. It provides new details on what preceded the moment he ran from the deputy.
Deputy Tanner Buller was patrolling around 10:30 p.m. near Stall and Mazyck roads in North Charleston when he noticed a white SUV swerve several times from its lane, the report states. The driver also failed to use a turn signal when changing lanes.
Buller, who has worked in law enforcement for five years, had a deputy-in-training with him during the stop. He flipped on his blue lights and the SUV pulled over onto the Ashley Phosphate Road overpass, which sits atop I-26.
Buller spoke with the car’s driver through the passenger-side window. The driver denied he had been drinking, but Buller wrote he could smell marijuana and alcohol coming from the vehicle’s passenger side. The car’s passenger, later identified as Cole, told the deputy his name was Raymond Brown.
Buller had both men get out of their car so he could search them. The driver admitted he’d smoked marijuana earlier in the day, the report states.
When Cole exited the car, Buller saw a beer can near the passenger seat. Buller found Cole’s driver’s license and noticed it did not match the name he’d provided the deputy.
Buller tried to detain Cole “but he pulled away and fled on foot” across Ashley Phosphate Road, the report states. The deputy chased Cole while trying to avoid traffic.
He repeatedly asked Cole to stop but the man “eventually jumped over the guardrail,” the report states. Buller saw Cole’s hands “grabbing the rail for a brief period” before he appeared to let go and fall onto I-26, the report states.
Buller never drew his weapon, said Andrew Knapp, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman. The deputy remains on duty. In addition to conducting its own internal review, the Sheriff’s Office also requested State Law Enforcement Division investigate the incident, Knapp said.
Investigators searched Cole’s name in a federal database and found he had an active warrant with the probation department, as well as three bench warrants with Charleston County’s Family Court.
Cole was the defendant in an ongoing child support case filed in 2016, court records show.
He was placed on a year of probation in February 2020 after pleading guilty in Charleston County to a forgery charge. Cole’s probation sentence would not be terminated until he paid all associated fees, said Anita Dantzler, a department spokeswoman.
Cole owed nearly $2,500 to the department, records show.
