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.

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 Nexton.
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 Nexton, 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.

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.

There’s been no shortage of news over the past 30 months about office vacancies. In large gateway cities, office occupancies fell dramatically during the pandemic as staffs found they could work from home. Moreover, occupancies have remained stubbornly low, as employers and staff faced off over remote work.
Though the weeks since Labor Day have seen a number of firms’ employees return to in-office mode, many corporate tenants in the nation’s biggest office markets are downsizing to considerably less space.
But let’s pause before assuming the well-reported empty office is the ubiquitous norm. In an assortment of cities in the Southeast U.S., the opposite trend has taken hold. Developers and communities in Alabama and South Carolina, for instance, have noted growing tenant interest in office space, particularly in high-end office buildings.
The Jasper, a luxury 12-story, mixed-use structure in the historic downtown district of Charleston, S.C., features 75,000 square feet of AAA office space, as well as 25,000 square feet of first-floor retail space and 219 luxury multifamily units. All spaces in The Beach Company building, which touts its riverside geography, are currently filled.
The Range, situated within a designated Opportunity Zone in the western end of downtown Huntsville, Ala., not far from acclaimed restaurants, museums and parks, is a commercial office development offering three floors and 49,000 square feet of Class A commercial office space. Walking a fine line between big-city office environments and those with a small-town vibe, The Range offers pedestrian-friendly access to a variety of the Rocket City’s most popular dining, retail and entertainment options. That may be why it recently welcomed two new corporate tenants, Eyecare Partners and Bridgeworth Financial Services.
“People are leaving western and northeastern markets for small and mid-sized Southern cities like Huntsville,” says J.C. Darby, development manager at The Beach Company. “In the past decade Huntsville has become Alabama’s No. 1 city with the addition of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in investment from companies like Mazda, Toyota, The Boeing Company and Remington, all things The Beach Company looks for when scouting development sites.
“The Range is equidistant to the Interstate and all of Huntsville’s economic drivers, including the medical district, Cummings Research Park, NASA’s Space Flight Center and Redstone Arsenal. And we are predicting occupancy growth as a result of this, its walkability and the structure’s distinctive modern design.”
Near job hubs
Meanwhile, demand for office space sparked the development of two new office buildings in Nexton, a master-planned Summerville, S.C. community situated near the region’s top employers, including Volvo and Boeing. One, Atelier Downtown Nexton, offers two-story buildings featuring 2,500 to 18,000-square-foot spaces in a campus like setting where office structures are connected by walking trails.
Developed by Sharbell Development Corp. of New Jersey, the development is the latest within the live-work-play milieu of Downtown Nexton. “The Southeastern U.S. has appealed to Sharbell for years, especially South Carolina, due to its population and job growth, as well as its burgeoning diversity,” says the company’s Thomas Troy.
“Many companies are relocating to the South in search of lower costs and higher quality of life for employees, and our developments reflect that shift.”
Not to be outdone, Workplace at Nexton, a Class A office park within the community, offers 3,000 to 20,000-square-foot spaces, and connectivity to Nexton’s residential side. Residents can walk to Nexton Square’s shopping, hotel and other commercial businesses. Workplace at Nexton’s office spaces had all been claimed before construction was completed, and there’s been no attrition.
“Garden office space with minimal shared common spaces, private entrances and outdoor parks have become the gold standard for commercial leasing in the Charleston, S.C. region,” says Cassie Cataline, Nexton director of marketing.
“Leasing interest for Workplace at Nexton was so great we are developing additional commercial campuses, such as The Hub, to provide office, retail and medical space to address this demand.”

Local engineer Chris Wood's presentation of SCDOT's $179 million-plus structural undertaking comprising the widening of I-26 and new SC 27 Interchange was no mundane nuts-and-bolts rundown.
During his appearance at the Rotary Club of Summerville's Nov. 2 meeting at the Nexton Hilton Garden Inn, organization members peppered the keynote speaker with doubts and concerns about two forthcoming roundabouts along the interchange site area near the Walmart Distribution Center in Ridgeville.
Wood, a construction services project manager for the HDR design firm of North Charleston, led off the PowerPoint overview by describing the multilayered roadwork as a "substantial" and "challenging" project aimed at expanding seven miles of the I-26 from mile marker 187 to mile marker 193. Further, the one-time Naval officer walked the audience through a summary of an interchange construction — in the form of a 192-foot bridge — at Ridgeville Road to promote better traffic flow.
The mere mention of the soon-to-be-built interchange set off a series of questions from multiple club members in attendance, with one Rotarian pointedly asking Wood to list the advantages— if any — of two roundabouts and/or traffic signal/signage alternatives near the Walmart storage facility.
The civil engineer offered that the tight circular roundabout structures serve the purpose of adding a constant flow of traffic that — he estimated — works well with mid-level conditions of highway car travel.
"In other words, this isn't high volume yet, so it keeps traffic moving under mid-level volumes of traffic," detailed Wood, who reminded listeners that he is neither the design engineer nor a DOT authority who selected the roundabout method.
A fellow PE in the room questioned the functionality and purpose of roundabouts and the difficulties that they would present to regular drivers in light of the preponderance of large trucks that would traversing the make-shift, circular junction.
Wood explained that the roundabouts would be large enough to handle trucks coming from the Walmart site. He also mentioned how the curving of the circling structures would allow the trucks to navigate the roundabouts, while pointing out that the surrounding concrete would be sturdy enough to withstand the weight of the large vehicles.
Roundabouts are nothing new and have, in fact, been in existence for over 100 years, according to reports. However, their usage hasn't always garnered public support due to instances where cars entering the traffic circle wind up frequently having the right-of-way over cars that are already in that same circle.
Other traditional cons concerning the viability of roundabouts stem from driver uncertainty about yielding, the overabundance of merge points, driver speed, motorists who try to cut the roundabout and cyclist/pedestrian shoulder lanes that are sometimes deemed as too narrow, potentially endangering those parties.
Wood's description of the work continued with his narration of project elements regarding the construction of the S-32 Cypress Campground Road Bridge and the new I-26 bridge over Cypress Swamp.
The most formidable challenge of the DOT venture, he observed, is the installation of six box culverts (i.e. structural drainage that spans from one side of the road to the other).
"They're substantial in size. You're talking about this one here is a 287-foot, triple-barrel, 10' x 9' box culvert across the highway, so I mean, I hope it would be adequate to prevent situations like what you're talking about," said Wood in response to a Rotarian's recollection of the addition of the 1-26 negatively impacting and/or impeding the backflow of area waterways.
"I would think that the new systems would be larger than the existing [ones] to handle these larger rain events. You make me want to check that when I go back, but rarely do you ever go smaller for a box culvert or any drainage component," replied Wood.
In closing, the presenter maintained that the DOT is doing a fine job of planning ahead in reference to three future bill packages impacting the I-26, U.S. Highway 176 and South Carolina Highway 187.
Other details communicated by Wood pertaining the 1-26 widening and new interchange/bridge construction included a Nov. 30, 2026 contract completion date, as Banks Construction of North Charleston has been hired to handle the labor-and-materials aspect of the project.
"In summary, I'd just like to say that the I-26, mile marker 187 is a major component to the South Carolina transportation planning, which supports the local growth by improving the essential freight corridor essentially out of Charleston with all the port activities and with Walmart, Volvo and other companies moving in," concluded the married father of three, who has previously managed over $200 million of construction in the Lowcountry.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. – At Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Berkeley County Board of Education, officials announced an agreement with Brookfield Properties that will bring a new K-8 school to the Nexton area in Berkeley County.
The agreement to acquire property includes the land donation for the K-8 school, approximately 35 acres, and a commitment by the developer to pay voluntary impact fees of $1850 per unit. The new K-8 school is slated to open in the fall of 2025.
“We are very excited to announce this agreement with Brookfield Properties which will result in building a much needed school in the Nexton area,” said Berkeley County School District Superintendent Deon Jackson. “This agreement is important because, in addition to the land donation for the school, the District will also receive funding per unit to support continued growth in our county. This agreement is a win for the students and taxpayers of Berkeley County.”
BCSD said it continues to experience exponential growth, welcoming nearly 1000 new students each school year. The majority of the growth is dominated by large residential developments in the 17A and Hwy 52 corridors, to include the Nexton Community Development in Summerville. Neighboring Cane Bay Elementary and Cane Bay Middle currently operate under an attendance cap and manage waitlists as both schools’ utilization rates are over 100 percent.
Nexton Elementary, a K-5 school that opened in 2015 with a design capacity of 945 students, currently houses 1046 students. While utilization at Nexton is expected to drop to 85 percent when the new Carolyn Lewis School opens in the Carnes area in the fall of 2023, without other interventions, Nexton Elementary would be back at nearly 100 percent utilization by 2025.
“Not only will Nexton’s new K-8 school provide a high-quality facility for students, but it will allow parents the opportunity and convenience of a more proximal option,” said Brent Gibadlo, Senior Vice President, Development, at Nexton. “This land donation further solidifies our partnership with the Berkeley County School District and illustrates Nexton’s commitment to education and smart growth.”
The plan to build a K-8 school, as opposed to a traditional elementary or middle school, is based largely on the ability to expeditiously and efficiently add capacity at both the elementary and middle school levels. Additionally, a K-8 model provides the District with more flexibility for conversion into a stand-alone elementary or middle school, if needed in the future as growth in the area is expected to continue.
“It is important that we continue to cultivate positive relationships with developers and builders to ensure that construction, expansion, and updates of schools remain at the forefront of all planning,” said Jackson. “When growth helps pay for growth, it will no longer be perceived as an unwelcome challenge, but rather as an opportunity to improve the quality of life for our students and their families.”

MONCKS CORNER — Voters approved two separate 1 percent sales taxes to pay for infrastructure and school construction projects in rapidly developing Berkeley County.
The infrastructure tax, which will be collected by the county, passed with 74 percent of the vote. The education capital improvements tax, which will be collected by the Berkeley County School District, passed with 71 percent of the vote.
The infrastructure tax is a continuation of a seven-year tax voters first approved in 2008 to pay for road improvements throughout the county. Officials have touted the completion of projects like Phase 1 of the widening on Clements Ferry Road as proof of the tax’s success.
The referendum also asked voters to approve $89 million in obligation bonds to pay for initial projects while the tax is first being collected. It will be repaid with money from the tax. Voters passed it with 71 percent of the vote.
The infrastructure tax will pay for a $74 million second phase of widening Clements Ferry on Daniel Island; two phases, each about $30.4 million, of widening Henry Brown Boulevard in Goose Creek; $58 million worth of widening and intersection improvements along Interstate 26 in the Jedburg area; and a $61 million widening project of U.S. Highway 176 between U.S. 17A and Nexton Parkway.
Ten percent of the money collected from the tax will go to preserve green space throughout the county. It received support from several conservation groups, including the Coastal Conservation League and the Conservation Voters of South Carolina.
“In poll after poll, voters say Berkeley County is growing too fast, leading to record losses of open space and wildlife habitat, polluting our rivers and lakes, and threatening our quality of life,” John Tynan, executive director of CVSC, said in a statement. “With today’s overwhelming YES vote on the transportation and greenspace referendum, Berkeley County voters sent a resounding message that they value their quality of life and the environment.”
The education capital projects is a new seven-year tax that will pay for three new schools, additions to four more and improvements to each of the high schools’ athletic facilities.
The district is growing by as many as 1,000 students a year as more people move into developments like Nexton, Carnes Crossroads and Cane Bay.
District officials have said they will look into other ways to fund the capital projects if the referendum does not pass.

Tatum here. Did you know there’s a new Viva Chicken location in Nexton? If you love chicken, Peruvian food, or exploring Nexton’s restaurant scene, this spot should be on your radar.
Viva Chicken is a Peruvian rotisserie chicken joint whose co-founder is from Peru. The menu includes bowls, salads, sandwiches, and rotisserie chicken or pollo a la brasa.

I tried the quarter chicken with yuca + plantains ($9.55), the maracuya juice ($3.25), and a churro ($3.50). My pollo a la brasa was crisped to perfection + I got the huacatay sauce for a bit of a kick.
When I bit into the yuca (which is like a potato) I thought I’d fried + gone to heaven. Pro tip: Dip the yuca in the huancaina cheese sauce or pair it with maracuya for a sweet and tangy complement.
If you’re craving pollo, order the quarter, half, or whole chicken with sides like cilantro rice, green beans, and plantains. The chicken is charcoal-fired + marinated in spices.
The eatery has plenty of healthy options like the Andina Power Food or the Inca Wrap. Plus, the menu is 70% vegetarian with the option to add a protein.
Choose from three sauces (all made in-house daily):
And wet your whistle with one of three signature juices:
What we’re still talking about: I learned that Viva Chicken partnered with No Kid Hungry and donates 50 cents for every churro sold. Talk about a win-win.
Also, the outdoor patio was the perfect spot to eat. If it’s a nice day, order on the app ahead of time + enjoy your food in the sunshine. ??
There are several ways to get your fix — order through the Viva Chicken App, online, curbside, in-store, or over the phone. Pro tip: Download the app, make an account + start earning VivaPoints.
