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 Ladson, 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.

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 Ladson.
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 Ladson, 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 new frozen custard and burger restaurant soon will welcome customers in Ladson, and a home decor store is opening in a new shopping center in North Charleston.
Culver’s plans to open at 10 a.m. Aug. 29 at 3848 Ladson Road next to Gilligan’s Seafood Restaurant, according to Marilyn Knox, the franchise owner who opened the first Charleston-area Culver’s in 2019 on U.S. Highway 17A in Berkeley County.
The location also includes a drive-thru and patio, where live music will be available on opening evening and possibly once a week, Knox said. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 10 a.m. opening day.
Culver’s specializes in its signature ButterBurgers and frozen custard. It also offers other meat sandwiches along with sides and salads.
The planned Culver’s is a few miles north of competitor Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, which opened last fall at 4540 Ladson Road near Stars and Strikes bowling and arcade center on the edge of Summerville.
Another new retailer is ready to open its doors in a North Charleston retail center.
HomeGoods plans to host a grand opening Aug. 18, starting at 8 a.m., in the new Cedar Grove Shopping Center at 8821 Dorchester Road.
The 22,000-square-foot home decor shop is the latest merchant to join the new retail center. Already open are Ross Dress for Less, discount shop Five Below and cosmetics purveyor Ulta.
A 16,000-square-foot PetSmart pet supply shop is expected to open in September, and other shops are on the way to a newly constructed outparcel building closer to Dorchester Road.
Shopping center plans call for three more retail structures on the south side where land is currently being cleared next to Riverbluff Parkway in front of Cedar Grove Apartments.
A new restaurant is ready to welcome customers at the site of a recently closed dining spot in Mount Pleasant.
Pasture & Grain will officially open at 11 a.m. Aug. 19 at 1701 Shoremeade Road in Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17.
It’s in the same retail center where national sporting goods retailer REI is upfitting the former Publix GreenWise Market grocery store space for an opening in the fall.
The restaurant is taking over the space vacated in May by Blaze Pizza, which closed after three years.
Pasture & Grain owner and operator Ira Hill said the 2,800-square-foot venue will serve American fare priced from $8 to $18.
Meats, vegetables, grains, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and toast with spreads are on the menu. Sous chef is Brandon Brown. The new restaurant will be open until 9 p.m. daily.
A Florida-based grocery chain with several stores in the Charleston area has rolled out curbside prescription pickup in four states. Publix Pharmacy started offering the service Aug. 10 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Virginia. South Carolina and North Carolina locations will be added in the future as the company expands the program throughout its entire operations in the Southeast.
A new tanning salon has opened in Mount Pleasant.
City Tan can be found at 1167 Basketweave Drive in the Cirque Salon Studios off U.S. Highway 17 near Six Mile Road. The owner is Liz Bailey, who also owns Bikini Bronze Charleston at 10 Exchange St. on the peninsula.
A group boxing workout studio plans to make its South Carolina debut with three new sites.
Rumble Boxing plans to open in Charleston and Hilton Head Island. Locations have not been announced.
Rumble President Shaun Grove said boxing workouts are geared to all fitness levels and abilities and the company plans to continue its expansion across the nation.
The boxing-inspired studio delivers 45-minute, 10-round strength and conditioning group workouts crafted around teardrop-style aqua boxing bags and high-intensity strength-training circuits. Rumble is designed to build strength and relieve stress.
The New York City-based company has 25 franchise locations open across the U.S. Others are in development.
LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — For the last two years, the trucking industry has struggl...
LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — For the last two years, the trucking industry has struggled with an all-time high in truck driver shortages. Amid this crisis, a Charleston trucking company is looking to change the narrative right here in the Lowcountry.
In exactly four months’ time, the Coastal Carolina Fairgrounds will be full of truck service companies, operators and vendors taking part in the first-ever trucking expo in the Lowcountry and South Carolina.
The expo is hosted by the trucking agency CM Transportation. The event will serve two main purposes:
One is to connect prospective drivers with current operators, vendors or agencies to provide the first step into entry in the trucking industry and open doors to those who haven’t had the opportunity before. It also looks to connect these prospective drivers with resources on how to get certified and obtain a commercial driver’s license.
The second is to connect operators with vendors in an attempt to improve supply chain management and look at ways to increase revenue.
With the current driver shortage totaling nearly 80,000 drivers nationwide, according to the American Trucker Association, leaders with CM Transportation say they felt the need to step in to try and make a change.
“With there being so many changes, like the cost of diesel fuel right now increasing the rates, we have a lot of people who are interested in entering into our industry,” CM Transportation owner and operator Carisa Carter said. “The lack of knowledge is why we peril. So, they don't really have the information that a lot of people don't have. The information that they need when they begin their journey in trucking. So, I think that this will change the face, because now they'll see that there is a support system.”
Carter said another focus of hers is to increase the female presence in the trucking industry. She hopes to use her connections within female-owned small businesses to help connect truck drivers with big players in the industry.
Truck drivers are in high demand, but there are many more factors that contribute to some of the struggles within the trucking industry.
One is the hike in diesel fuel prices over the last few months. Mix that with supply chain delays, and trucking companies like CM Transportation say it has completely changed the cost analysis for many companies and even caused many financial struggles.
Entry into the industry has also become harder over the last few months. New federal laws passed in February increased prices to obtain a CDL, which is required to be able to become a truck driver, by thousands of dollars.
To combat this, trucking officials say they have seen the highest salaries for drivers in almost 23 years, and with Charleston’s roots in shipping and ports, CM Transportation leaders hope this expo will drive more people into the industry.
“From East Coast to West Coast, there's just not enough truck drivers to deliver the amount of cargo that came in after the world opened back up after COVID,” Carter said. “That is one of the foundations, the biggest industries, that we have here locally, and so we're, you know, with this being a port city, the value is increased nationwide, which has allowed us to increase the value of our drivers here.”
The official date of the expo is set for Sept. 17 at the Coastal Carolina Fairgrounds. There will also be food, a DJ and a raffle for an estimated $6,000 set of tractor tires.
Tickets officially go on sale Tuesday for the first-of-its-kind expo. General admission starts at $25, with a professional package with more amenities starting at around $50.

LADSON, S.C. (WCBD)- The annual Coastal Carolina Fair is underway at Exchange Park in Ladson.
Most fairgoers have their eyes and stomachs on fair food for the first day.
“They always have good food and it’s just a good time to spend with family. They have a little arts and crafts center where you can see the students’ local talents,” said Jasmine Kelly.
“Sausage dogs and French fries. Walk around and look and see what’s going on,” said Woody Barsha.
One of the new food items on the menu is an Oreo cookie crusted turkey leg.
“No I don’t think so I’ll stick to French fries,” said Barsha.
“I can’t eat that much, but I will have an elephant ear,” said Kelly.
There are 10 new rides this year as well. One of them is a Ferris Wheel that’s 12 stories tall and comes from The Netherlands.
Fair organizers say that those new attraction and food items are great additions, but having a full-scale fair is also something to celebrate.
“We’re really excited about opening up because this is the first really big open fair we’ve had since COVID-19 has happened. We say ‘New in 22,’ and that’s what we’re doing because we have brand new rides, we have many new food vendors so we’re really excited about starting the year off right,” said Gary Leonard from the office of Media and Publicity Relations at the Coastal Carolina Fair.
Most families make the fair a tradition, but it’s even more special for Dan Caskey.
“Today’s my birthday. Every year I have a party and bring this to town to share with everybody else. It’s a great tradition. We love coming out here and having a fun time with the family,” said Caskey.

LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) — It's that time of year again! The annual Coastal Carolina Fair kicks off this week in Ladson with some brand new rides and foods.
The fair opens this Thursday and Friday from 3 to 9 p.m.
This year's fair will run from Thursday, Oct. 27 to Sunday, Nov. 6.
There will be around 65 rides in total this year, including some new ones.
Thrill seekers will be excited to see the largest rollercoaster AND Ferris wheel they've had yet. The Ferris wheel is over 100-ft tall.
“We’ve got a brand-new carnival. It’s a big deal for us. We had a very long relationship with the last one, and this one had some opportunities to bring some new coasters, rollercoasters in. Some great rides, and we just couldn’t pass it up,” said Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson, Jay Wallace.
A wide variety of tasty treats are on the menus: barbeque sandwiches, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, funnel cakes, deep fried brownies- and the list goes on and gets more creative.
Some other options will include funnel cakes, elephant ears, and award-winning jalapeno corndogs.
Be sure to look out for the Oreo-encrusted turkey leg!
In addition to rides and food, fairgoers will find lots of other entertainment.
Coastal Carolina Fair officials suspended online ticket sales until further notice after fraudulent activity was detected Wednesday.
Tickets can be purchased at Circle K stores or at the fair gates for the time being.
Credit and cash are accepted at the gate ticket booths, but only credit is accepted at the kiosks located at each entry gate.
Fair officials said do not buy tickets from people that approach you or posted online.
Check the fair's calendar for special discount days for seniors and more.

TICKET PRICES BEGINNING OCTOBER 27TH:
The use of metal detectors and a clear plastic bag policy will continue for this season, and that there will be plenty of security. Some of it will be around the clock during the fair’s two-week run.
“The No. 1 rule we have around here that tells us if we’ve had a good fair is if we’ve had a safe fair," said Coastal Carolina Fair’s media relations spokesperson Jay Wallace.
All rides are inspected by multiple agencies, Grimm said.
