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 Moncks Corner, 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.

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 Moncks Corner, 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.

With fewer than two dozen confirmed cases of monkeypox in South Carolina, the state is trying to reach out to those at risk to get them vaccinated before the disease becomes more widespread.
The Department of Health and Environmental Control said there are 23 confirmed cases in South Carolina: 10 in the Midlands, seven in the Lowcountry and six in the Upstate, with none so far in the Pee Dee public health region.
The state has ordered and received 1,547 doses of the vaccine but was allocated an additional 5,220 doses as of July 29, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The state is in the process of ordering those additional doses “as we speak,” said Dr. Linda Bell, the state epidemiologist.
“We do have plans to make sure that we get all of the doses available to us in the state as quickly as possible,” she said.
So far, there has been a “relatively slow rollout here,” Bell said, with appointments available now, unlike some neighboring states that have waiting lists.
The infections are primarily spread through close “skin-to-skin” contact, including sexual contact, but it is not a sexually transmitted disease, Bell said. Nonetheless, the epidemic currently is mostly among men who have sex with men. That is the group the state is targeting to get them to sign up for vaccination appointments at one of 14 clinics across the state.
There is less risk of spread from infected clothing or linens, and little risk from casual contact such as touching handrails or doorknobs, Bell said.
“It is unlikely that someone could get (monkeypox) through routine community activities such as going to grocery stores or restaurants or something like being in an elevator with someone,” she said. “The risk to the general public is low and the likelihood of widespread disease is low because the virus is not easily spread.”
DHEC has also acquired several courses of the antiviral treatment tecovirimat, or TPOXX, a treatment for the similar smallpox infection. The Food and Drug Administration is allowing states and clinicians to access the treatment for severe cases through an expanded access investigational New Drug application held by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The state has helped with getting the drug to patients with severe disease in at least a couple of cases, and some South Carolina patients have been hospitalized for pain control.
“We do believe this has great potential to be an effective therapy against the severe complications of monkeypox infections,” Bell said.
Because the virus is believed to have spread from animals to people, it is also possible for it to affect companion animals, she said.
“Pets in the home are a concern,” Bell said, and those infected are advised to not only isolate from people but from their animals, as well.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCSC) - Parents and students in Berkeley County could see some bus delays during the first week back to school.
The Berkeley County School District says these delays could be 15-20 minutes for some bus routes. However, they say that is nothing unusual for the first week of school.
Katie Tanner, the chief communications officer for the district, says they have 37,000 students and about 22,000 of them use bus transportation. She also says some parents decide to drive their kids to school during the first week that normally would not, creating a different routine for travel time.
“When you have those, that many buses on roads that have traffic on a daily basis, much less when school starts back, there’s going to be potentially some delays as everyone gets used to buses and being on buses and that our drivers get used to their routes,” Tanner said
Tanner says the head of transportation for the district hired 40 new bus drivers over the summer for this school year. She says they hope to still get at least 10 more and encourages everyone to apply.
In the last week, Tanner says more and more parents are requesting transportation information for their assigned buses. She says bus drivers have been practicing their routes this weekend to accommodate these last-minute requests and to prepare for this week.
“Our commitment is to safely transport children to and from school,” Tanner said. “Timeliness is second to safety. We have to make sure that our students are safe, that they have all the things that they need and then as you get going through the week, timeliness gets better as traffic patterns work themselves out.”
For those parents making those last-minute requests, Tanner asks them to try to transport their kids Monday and Tuesday this week, if able, to keep the bus routes running smoothly.
She says delays might be more common in more populated areas like the 52 corridor and 17A corridor.
Tanner says bus delay information will be updated every morning for all schools in different Google Docs.

In an effort to quell homeowners along the southern terminus of Vanihayn Drive in Moncks Corner, Charleston-based developer Wofford Stribling recently agreed to close off access from a portion of his Kitfield development project to ward off increased congestion for the concerned residents in question.
Those intentions were communicated during an Aug. 23 Moncks Corner Planning and Zoning meeting at the local Town Hall venue at 118 W. Carolina Ave.
The story begins with the applicant (Stribling) receiving approval from Town Council in December 2020 to attain rezoning for the addition of 160 new homes at what’s known as the Kitfield Road subdivision.
Subsequently, the builder informed the planning and zoning commission of his plans to annex an additional 16.02-acre tract along Vanihayn Drive, yielding a maximum of 33 units.
Upon hearing of this, one family owning property on each side of Vanihayn Drive opposed the prospect of allowing new residents of Stribling’s development to drive in and out of the proposed residential complex using their private road.
Those sentiments were communicated to Stribling and the commission during a July 26 public session.
During the following meeting on Aug. 23, the speculator confirmed claims that Vanihayn Drive was indeed a private roadway and thus assured affected stakeholders that he would place emergency access gates that could only be unlocked by first-responders during crisis situations. These structures would be installed on Vanihayn Drive and Prospect Drive.
Community Development Director Douglas Polen explained: “No one from this development or this new annexed part will be able to get onto Vanihayn Drive past [a certain point] or onto Prospect.”
Moncks Corner Planning & Zoning Commissioner Connor Salisbury affirmed that outside access to Vanihayn Drive via an existing “through-put” would be terminated by the new gates.
Kitfield community president and resident Riley G. McKelvey asked for further clarification.
“We want to make sure that in our community we’re taken care of ... we want to keep light traffic right now. But we want to make sure we don’t impede anyone else’s property as well because we pay taxes. The last thing I want happening is that someone comes in and says, ‘You know what? We’re going to take this, we’re not going through that — it ain’t happening,’” he stated.
Other community members in attendance asked the planning and zoning commission to properly inform them of new additions/renovations that could affect homeowners in the future. Some of them felt that a sign reporting the July meeting was poorly placed in an area where it wasn’t readily visible to locals.
Area resident Carole Williams, however, expressed her apprehension about all of the traffic from the new development spilling over to the west end of Kitfield Road, as drivers would only be afforded one-way in and one way out on that stretch. Cars traversing that path, she added, would end turning on Broughton Road or California Avenue, while headed toward West Main Street.
Stribling reported that a DOT traffic study had been completed to focus on traffic mitigation for vehicles emanating from the Kitfield development. As a result of conferring with the government agency, the land developer stated that he would install a right-hand turn lane from Kitfield Road onto Broughton Road. In order to facilitate the insertion of that lane, he continued, Broughton Road would be widened. Furthermore, residents also learned that the entire intersection would also be restriped.
Williams countered that she is more distressed about making a left turn from Broughton Road to West Main Street rather than going right.
Salisbury told Williams that issue would be addressed when his group composes their next comprehensive plan.
In the meantime, Stribling communicated his willingness to contribute to the Community Redevelopment Program, whereby all residents of the surrounding Kitfield community would receive between $500-$1,000 per lot for infrastructure improvements.

In what she describes as a comeback outing of sorts, jazz vocalist Alterea Baxter is set to take the stage with Terrance Bryant and Sherlyn “Dee Dee” Johnson on Sept. 10 as part of a music spectacular hosted by the Berkeley County Library System (BCLS) at the Berkeley County Administration Building.
Baxter, 62, plans on emerging from her COVID-fueled hiatus by kicking off the 4 p.m. show with a segment of classic jazz standards and later adding a dash of R&B and sprinkle of soul to the late-summer affair.
The global pandemic combined with two recent corneal transplants temporarily forced the current Goose Creek resident to put her live performances on the shelf, but now the veteran entertainer is declaring herself primed and ready to dazzle audiences with her unmistakable crooning ability.
As an unabashed aficionado of the golden era of jazz, Baxter recommends that the uninitiated to the genre take in a sampling of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and other masters to capture the true essence of the music form that originated in African-American communities of New Orleans, Louisiana.
“Get into those songs because that’s where you’re going to find all your jazz notes. That’s where you’re going to be introduced to that flow that other genres do not carry,” observed the native of Downtown Charleston, who has been singing on a professional level over a period of four decades.
“The golden era ... that’s my favorite because that’s where the meat of jazz is. That’s where the notes are that will give you the feel of loving jazz,” she adds.
Since her reemergence, many of her go-to performance venues have gone out of business, including a number of restaurants, due to COVID. However, the loving mother and grandmother has designs on continuing her stage work at banquet halls and senior homes in the St. Stephens, Moncks Corner areas and beyond. In the past, she’s toured the southeast in markets, such as Panama City, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia.
When Baxter isn’t putting on a show for her adoring fans, she serves as a vocal coach for those hoping to hone their skills.
“I’m always vocalizing at home. My studio is right here in my living room. I periodically, on Mondays, teach lessons.”
A point of emphasis in her lessons is what she calls “lip trills,” which are prescribed by the voice expert to put the body in proper positioning to ensure both healthy singing and speaking.
“It sounds crazy, but it works,” Baxter assures. “It’s the best thing you can do as far as putting your voice where it needs to be.”
As for tips she dispenses for aspiring acts on the come, Alterea advises folks to hire a reliable booking agent and assembling a quality bio and references. But beyond that, she encourages people who are serious about their craft to simply sing as frequently as possible on stage, in the car or in the shower.
Baxter’s Sept. 10 show promises to be a joyous experience, as she plans to belt out a collection of feel-good tunes, including hits from Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Caldwell and other well-known music icons.
For more information on Baxter’s upcoming schedule or her training availability, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Running back Santory Jones picked up where he left off a week earlier to power the Cross Trojans against Scott’s Branch Sept. 9 at CHS.
Jones rushed for 122 yards and scored on runs of 21 and 39 yards in the first half as the Trojans took control against the visitors en route to a 30-6 victory, their third straight. A week earlier, the senior scored on a 35-yard run, picked off a pass in the end zone and recovered two fumbles in a 14-6 victory over Timberland.
“He’s just a hard worker,” Cross coach Shaun Wright said. “He’s a kid who understands the game of football and his leadership role on this team. He leads by example. He’s a workhorse. He’s one of our top wrestlers, too. That’s helped him in football on both sides of the ball.”
The Trojans (3-1) pulled away in the fourth quarter against Scott’s Branch, with defensive back Caden Ramsey recovering a fumble in the end zone and running back Carmello Montgomery scoring on an 11-yard run. Montgomery added both 2-point conversion runs.
Defensively, linebacker Karmello Jones led the Trojans with 10 total tackles, including four for lost yardage.
The win was Cross’s seventh in the last eight meetings versus Scott’s Branch.
The Trojans travel to rival Lake Marion Sept. 16. The Gators also bring a 3-1 mark into the game. Lake Marion prevailed in a nail-biter, 14-12, last season to even the series at nine games apiece going back to 2004. Cross had won four of the previous five before last year’s loss.
Lake Marion has won three straight since being shut out, 24-0, by Lucy Beckham Aug. 19, including a 28-22 victory at Calhoun County Aug. 26. Cross also played Calhoun County, falling 27-8 on Aug. 20.
Lake Marion's other victories are over Wagener-Salley (35-14) and Manning (27-13).
“Arguably, they’re going to be our toughest game so far,” Wright said. “They are a much-improved football team. We have a mountain to climb but we’re going to try to climb it.”
Cross hosts Buford Sept. 23, when it will honor its 2012 state championship team.
Philip Simmons 31,
Markellis Asbury rushed for 138 yards and a touchdown and Isaac Schimpf added 63 yards and two scores to power Philip Simmons past Timberland.
Iron Horses quarterback Tavien Orellana passed for 147 yards and threw a touchdown pass to receiver Troy Stevenson. Defensively, Devontay McNeil made nine tackles.
Timberland dropped to 0-4.
West Ashley 26,
West Ashley blanked visiting Berkeley Sept. 9, dropping the Stags to 1-3 on the season.
The Wildcats improved to 4-0. They've allowed just 13 points this season. They led 13-0 at halftime against Berkeley.
Thomas Heyward 20,
St. John's Christian 15
St. John's Christian hung with SCISA Class A power Thomas Heyward before falling by five points Sept. 9 in Moncks Corner.
The Cavaliers fell to 2-2.
