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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston.
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.
It all starts when you call our office for a free estimate. We'll take all the time you need to go over your new roof installation options to customize the structure and style to your needs. Once we have defined the project's details, our roof installation professionals will get to work on your home or business. Unlike some roofing companies in North Charleston, Hixon's is transparent about every step of the installation process. 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 North Charleston, 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.

South Carolina is home to three of the nation’s best places to get coffee, new rankings show.
Each of the shops landed on a list of the top 100 coffee shops in the United States. The review website Yelp said it created the rankings after looking at coffee-related businesses and studying “a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews” over time, according to results published Friday, Sept. 2.
The Palmetto State locations that received recognition:
With all of the ranked coffee shops boasting more than four out of five stars on Yelp, the list might not be surprising.
Among the high-scoring South Carolina shops was Lodi Coffee. The business, on Ashley Phosphate Road near the tourist destination of Charleston, bills itself as a place that’s “always trying something new.”
On Yelp, customers have raved that the shop serves a variety of drinks from a convenient drive-thru window. Several were fans of the cold brews, which come in flavors ranging from maple cream to hazelnut, according to the shop’s website.
Also landing a spot on Yelp’s list was Burr & Berry Coffee. While the business has a Charlotte location, its shop across the state line in Indian Land earned the praise.
On its Facebook page, the business said it offers drive-thru and walk-up service to customers at its South Carolina location. Many Yelp users couldn’t get enough of the quaintness of the shop on Transformation Lane, which serves cups that some said rival those made in the coffee hot spot of Seattle.
The last of the coffee shops that earned an honor from Yelp was Java Burrito Company on Hilton Head Island. Though the business also operates out of Savannah, the South Carolina location has received recognition time and time again.
The William Hilton Parkway shop — which focuses on the “unlikely pair” of burritos and coffee — has gotten statewide acclaim for those two menu items and even margaritas, according to McClatchy News and The Island Packet. This time around, the cafe made Yelp’s national list after customers went online to praise its lattes, iced coffee and other drinks.
Overall, the nation’s highest-ranking coffee place was Yaw Farm Coffee Roaster in Las Vegas. Rounding out the top five were shops in Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - So many people know the feeling of sliding on your first pair of glasses and finally being able to see a lot more clearly.
A new law is designed to bring that special moment to more children across South Carolina.
The legislation allows mobile optometry clinics to visit Title 1 schools, offering free screenings and eye exams and fitting and providing students with glasses, with parental consent.
“This will see that our children across the state — and I hope this spreads like wildfire — that they all are able to reach their full potential,” Gov. Henry McMaster said.
McMaster officially signed the new law earlier this year, but he commemorated it Wednesday at North Charleston Elementary School, where he was joined by other elected officials, Charleston County School District leaders and students, and representatives from the national nonprofit Vision to Learn.
The organization lobbied South Carolina’s legislature for the change in law, as its previous language had prohibited Vision to Learn from operating free mobile optometry clinics in South Carolina as it does in other states.
The General Assembly allowed Vision to Learn to operate on a trial basis over the last year before approving the permanent change in law. In that year, the nonprofit reports it provided more than 2,000 students from 17 schools in the Charleston County School District with eye exams, and 1,700 of those kids received free eyeglasses.
“Our program has found that the best way to solve this problem is by bringing access to students right here on campus,” Vision to Learn National Director Damian Carroll said.
District Director of Nursing Ellen Nitz said the new law removes barriers that may be keeping kids from reaching their full potential in the classroom.
“Many of our families will face either financial burdens, transportation issues, parents having to leave work to get to appointments, and then just not even realizing that you need glasses,” Nitz said.
During Wednesday’s event, four CCSD elementary school students received their first pair of glasses, including second grader Taila Sanders, who had selected frames in her favorite color, pink.
“Everything is like so different. It’s like not blurry anymore,” Sanders said.
With the change in law now in effect, Vision to Learn said its next goal is to bring this clinic to more districts across the state and help more South Carolina kids see.
“Our young students experienced unprecedented hardships during the recent pandemic, and now going forward, having access to quality eyecare and prescription glasses will not be one more thing that they or their parents have to worry about,” Rep. William Cogswell, R – Charleston, said.

In addition to offering a wide range of craft spirits, Firefly Distillery has become a go-to venue for concerts and events since its 2020 opening.
In September, the distillery will welcome food trucks and barbecue sauce makers to the sprawling North Charleston space (4201 Spruill Ave.) for two separate events.
More than 20 food trucks, including Roti Rolls, James Brown’s Famous Boiled Peanuts and Foxes Fried, will set up at the distillery from noon-5 p.m. Sept. 10. The free event, organized by the Lowcountry Food Truck Festival, returns for a third time following a successful 15-truck event in February.
Two weeks later, the inaugural Getting Saucy BBQ Sauce Competition will roll into the North Charleston distillery from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sept. 24.
Brandon Close of Chipper Dog BBQ and Bernard Johnson of charity The Arc of the Low Country are the organizers behind the event.
The group says the charity “promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.”
Competitors will compete in five sauce categories: Mild red, hot red, mustard, vinegar and specialty. Top sauce makers will be crowned in each category, with one overall winner earning the moniker of “South Carolina BBQ Sauce Grand Champion” by the end of the afternoon.
“Each sauce vendor we’re going to provide with pulled pork,” Close said. “It’s going to stay the same across the board and then our judges will taste it along with a fan favorite voting.”
Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg and KJ Kearney of Black Food Fridays are among the judges at the event, which costs $40 per person ($45 at the gate).
While viewing the action, attendees can enjoy bites from local food trucks, compete in a cornhole competition, and listen to live music from Lauren Hall and other entertainers.

Cullowhee, N.C. – Western Carolina travels down I-26 to the South Carolina Lowcountry this weekend for its much-anticipated 2022 season opener as the Catamounts visit the Charleston Southern Buccaneers. Kickoff of WCU's first of back-to-back road games to open the schedule is set for Noon.
Saturday's game will be broadcast on ESPN+ (paid subscription required) and will also be broadcast on the Catamount Sports Network with airtime of the Pepsi Tailgate Show at 11:00 am. Fans across western North Carolina can hear the game locally on eight CSN affiliates: in Sylva, 105.7 FM and 540 AM WRGC "The River"; 104.9 FM and 1050 AM WFSC in Franklin; WISE Sports Radio 1310 AM and 102.9 FM in Asheville; 970 AM WYSE in Canton; and Cullowhee on 95.3 WWCU-FM, with live streaming audio online at CatamountSports.com.
Fans can also follow the game with live stats accessible online at CatamountSports.com with timely in-game updates on Twitter using @Catamounts and @CatamountsFB.
Picked fifth in the preseason polls back at the end of July, optimism is high in Catamount Country as memories of the strong finish in 2021 that saw WCU win four of its final five games and post a fourth-place finish in the league. WCU's four victories last year were the most for the Purple & Gold since winning seven in 2017 – and the four SoCon wins were its most in five years after winning five league games back in 2017. That strong finish is coupled with an infusion of talent that bolsters the Catamount roster, spurring expectations across the Cullowhee Valley.
WCU is expected to turn the "Play Fast, Score Faster" offense under second-year coordinator Kade Bell over to QB Carlos Davis who is in his third season in Cullowhee. Davis has played in seven games over the past two years with a pair of starts including leading WCU to its first victory under Kerwin Bell in the 45-31 road win at The Citadel in Charleston. Davis threw for a career-high 401 yards in earning SoCon Offensive Player of the Week accolades while returning tailback TJ Jones amassed 205 total yards including 132 on the ground with a pair of scores and 73 yards and a touchdown through the air in the victory.
Defensively, Chazmon Scales took over as WCU's defensive coordinator during the offseason after serving as a co-coordinator with Justin Hinds – who was hired by the Chicago Bears as an assistant defensive line coach – a year ago. Much like his counterpart Kade Bell, Scales is a high-energy coach that inherits a veteran secondary, a bigger defensive line, but a question mark entering the year at linebacker. WCU graduated its top four LB's from a season ago with just Giovanni Ricciardi and Skylin Thomas representing the lone returners. A talented group of newcomers including four transfers and one freshman grace the opening weekend two-deep including EJ Porter, Va Lealaimatafao, Ed Jones IV, Nick Louis, and freshman Hayward McQueen.
First-year special teams coordinator Chris Norris has among the most veteran group with a pair of accomplished placekickers in Richard McCollum and Paxton Robertson, two game-proven punters on the two-deep in Robertson and starter Brandon Dickerson, and a pair of long-snappers in Kevin Thompson and Colby Cross. WCU must replace dependable punt returner Daquan Patten who graduated after last season and will miss preseason All-American kick returner, Calvin Jones after he suffered an injury in the spring – but, the Catamounts have several capable skill players to fill the return portion of special teams.
Western Carolina and Charleston Southern meet for the first time on the football gridiron in the anticipated frontend of a nonconference home-and-home as the Buccaneers are slated to come to Cullowhee next fall.
The Catamounts seek their first season-opening victory since 2018 when it downed Newberry in Cullowhee in its first game of the year. WCU must look back to the 2002 Kent Briggs-led squad for the last time it scored a road victory in its season-opening game – a 23-3 victory at Liberty while the Flames were still an NCAA FCS program. WCU closed 2021 with three-consecutive victories away from Cullowhee, looking for a fourth as it tangles with the Buccaneers on Saturday.
Coming off a third-place finish in the Big South Conference a season ago, Charleston Southern was tabbed in a tie for third with Gardner-Webb in the six-team league's preseason poll this year. The Bucs landed three players on the preseason All-Big South squad – leading wide receiver Cayden Jordan, leading tackler LB Garrett Sayegh, and safety Hombre Kennedy. Defensive end Anton Williams was an honorable mention for third-year head coach Autry Denson's squad.
Charleston Southern returns just four players on an offense that averaged 369.7 yards and 24.5 points per game a year ago, while seven starters return on defense. The Buc defense limited opponents to 366.7 yards per game and surrendered 28.9 points per game in 2021.
The Bucs have a very tough schedule in 2022, hitting the road for games at North Carolina State (Sept. 10) and Eastern Kentucky (Sept. 17) following Saturday's opener. CSU also hosts fellow SoCon for Furman on Sept. 24 before opening its five-game league schedule, visiting former Big South member Kennesaw State in late October.
