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 Savannah, GA.

We would rather invest that money into the best tools and most knowledgeable roofing experts available. That way, we can better serve our customers.
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.
Hixon's Roofing will provide quality roofing repairs for homes and businesses with all types of roofs. Whether you have a small, single-story home with a minor leak or a sprawling estate with multiple roofing issues, Hixon's will get your roof back to new in no time. 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 Savannah.
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 Savannah, 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 Savannah, GA, 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.

Our customer service reps have the knowledge and information to answer your questions and get the ball rolling on your roofing project in South Carolina today.Contact Us

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Savannah City Council has unanimously approved a new Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) distribution offer.
The new offer is now being sent to Chatham County Commission for consideration.
If approved, the County’s portion of LOST proceeds would go up from 24 percent in the first year (2023) to 31 percent by the fifth year (2027) in the proposed 10 year agreement.
“I applaud the City Council for understanding the importance of making a formal, fair offer to the Chatham County Commission for LOST distribution,” said Mayor Van Johnson. “We understood the needs the County is facing with regard to countywide services and this offer exemplifies the willingness of the municipalities to be good partners while allowing time for municipalities to adjust to a significant change in LOST distribution.”
LOST is a one percent sales tax that you pay in Chatham County, whether you’re in the unincorporated part or in a city.
Negotiations have dragged-on between Chatham County and the eight cities within it for several weeks, with both sides of the deal pushing for more money.
“We began LOST negotiations six months ago 430 total percentage points away from one another and today we stand only 7 percentage points apart,” said Savannah City Manager Joseph Melder. “We’ve made a tremendous amount of progress, and with today’s unanimous vote by City Council, we are hopeful that our partners at Chatham County will recognize this as a fair and reasonable agreement that will allow all municipalities and the county to meet our service delivery needs and keep property taxes as low as possible. Time is running out and we must reach an agreement as soon as possible.”
The distribution offer is as follows:
|YEAR||COUNTY SHARE||MUNICIPAL SHARE|
We’ll keep you updated as the process continues.

For Do Savannah
Since its founding, Savannah has been closely tied to the river that bears its name.
And for more than two decades, that river has played a special part in illuminating the holiday spirit for residents and visitors of the Hostess City.
On Saturday, the 21st Annual Savannah Boat Parade of Lights will kick off the Christmas season, a near and dear festivity for Savannahian families.
The boat parade will set sail from The Park at the Eastern Wharf docks at 7 p.m. as it snakes its way along the Savannah River. The Park will add to the festivities with food trucks, holiday music, a 30-ft. Christmas tree and The Thompson Savannah's mobile bar, offering a few festive libations.

But this event is about more than just pretty light displays and trails of boats; the parade has lived the "spirit of giving" each year, raising funds for a variety of local charities.
This year’s chosen charity is the Greenbriar Children's Center, a local charity which has been helping and supporting local children and their families for more than 70 years.
Greenbriar was established in 1949 by members of the Gamma Sigma Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., serving as emergency housing for abused, neglected, runaway and homeless children and young adults.
Its creation was made possible by funds left by local philanthropist, Adeline Graham, and through the support of Rev. Ralph Mark Gilbert of the First African Baptist Church. The boat parade is a special event for a special cause, one that continues to warm the hearts of area families well into the new year.
Delylah Thompson, 2022 Savannah Boat Parade of Lights Chair, says the Savannah Boat Parade has been loved by generations of locals, businesses, and visitors alike for its illuminated displays and festive atmosphere.
"It's fun, it's festive, and it's great comradery featuring creative talents by the participants," Thompson said. "But mostly, it's a lot of pride, knowing that we are raising funds for the Greenbriar children and their families."
Over 30 boats are registered for this year's parade, featuring a range of sizes and models, adorned with the lights and sounds of the holiday season. Per tradition, the parade will be led by the historic Georgia Queen Riverboat, which hosts guests with hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment, and drinks; a special way to view and participate in the parade.
Thompson says for more than 20 years, the boat parade has marked the start of the Christmas calendar for Savannah families and visitors.
"This is the official kick-off of the holiday season for many families and businesses in Savannah and the surrounding areas," Thompson added.
Spectators and participants can purchase parade memorabilia directly from the Savannah Boat Parade of Lights website, and at the parade itself. And it wouldn't be possible without the support of many local businesses and groups. Specialty Sports is donating all of the boat captain's and volunteer's T-shirts, and is also selling commemorative Boat Parade shirts to the public.
Creative Conspiracy Co. is selling commemorative tumblers featuring several designs which can be personalized with participant's names, boat names and more, with all proceeds benefitting Greenbriar Children's Center.
The Thompson Savannah Hotel has also provided 25 free rooms and breakfast for the parade's Captains and crews, while Plant Riverside District will be providing overnight stays at the JW Marriott Hotel to each of the five "judges choice winners" in the parade.
With so many fantastical illuminated boats on display, Thompson said it's hard to pick just one that is her favorite.
"Some are simple, while some are more intricate and include lights, costumes, props, decorations, and music...some even include moving parts," Thompson shared.

One boat in particular, manned by Captain Art Wright and his crew, have been known to amaze crowds with their amazing creations, building all year in anticipation of the parade. "Their pelican with large flapping wings from last year will be hard to beat, but I'm sure this year's presentation will not disappoint us," she added.
What new surprises will be passing crowds down the Savannah River this year?
You'll just have to see for yourself, in this fun and uniquely Savannahian way to welcome the Christmas season.

Pooler residents could soon be practicing their golf swings at a driving range off the city's main thoroughfare.
BigShots Golf, a TopGolf competitor, is looking to locate to the Mosaic Town Center development near the intersection of Interstate 16 and Pooler Parkway, which already features popular businesses such as Costco and Chick-fil-A. The “eatertainment” model combines the game of golf with food and drink for all skill levels and ages.
BigShots, which is owned by ClubCorp, the largest owner and operator of private golf and country clubs in the U.S., has several locations across the country, including their original in Vero Beach, Florida, as well as one in the United Kingdom.
The company dials in on smaller or secondary markets, according to reporting from Golf Inc. Magazine, an industry publication for golf course developers, owners and operators.
“We’re very similar to the Top Golf product,” said BigShots Golfs' corporate and civil engineer, Devin Birch, at a Dec. 19 Pooler council meeting. “However, I believe we substantially differentiate ourselves by offering a few more amenities.”
According to Birch, BigShots is a more tech-driven company, offering virtual or video game-like golf options alongside their putting courses. Other amenities that BigShots traditionally offers at its existing locations include yard games, fire pits, live music and their Anthem Kitchen and bar.
Plans for the Pooler location are modeled after BigShots' "Generation Four" design, which puts the putting course and a kids' play area indoors rather than outdoors. Current plans also feature a multi-use space that includes a large screen for golf games, corporate presentations or movies, said Birch.
A few more steps are needed before plans are finalized for the BigShots Pooler location. While the council unanimously passed a height variance that would allow their golf ball nets to reach 175 feet during a Dec. 19, 2022 meeting, the petitioner will have to return to council for the full site plan review.
Birch clarified that the height variance, increased from the PUD maximum of 125 feet, will apply to poles supporting the netting. Pooler’s Fire Chief Wade Simmons added that the department has the equipment and training to address any potential incidents at the requested height variance.
Current plans for the building max out at around 56 feet, according to a BigShots representative and the rest of the development will consist of a typical two-story building. The full buildout on the property will total approximately 12 acres.
BigShots Gold will have to return to council for an official site plan approval at a future date.

On Monday, January 23, 2023 at 7:00 PM, the internationally acclaimed African Children’s Choir will perform a full concert at the First Baptist Church Savannah located on Chippewa Square at 223 Bull Street, Savannah. Coastal Youth Choirs (CYC) is sponsoring the concert featuring children from all over Africa. The young singers ages 9-11 will melt the hearts of audiences with their charming smiles, beautiful voices and lively African songs and dances.
The concert is free and open to all. A free-will offering will be taken at the performance to support the education, care and relief, and development programs of the African Children’s Choir.
Music for Life (MFL), the parent organization for the African Children’s Choir, invites children from the countries of Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana, and South Africa to audition for the ACC. MFL has educated over 52,000 children and impacted the lives of over 100,000 people through its relief and development programs during its history. By focusing on providing education, MFL helps Africa’s most vulnerable children today, so they can help Africa tomorrow.
The African Children’s Choir has had the privilege to perform before presidents, heads of state and most recently Queen Elizabeth II, for her diamond jubilee. The Choir has also had the honor of singing alongside artists Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Michael W. Smith, and other inspirational performers!
“I have been a big fan of the African Children’s Choir ever since I found them on YouTube in 2019,” shares Rebecca Flaherty, CYC Board Member and Music Teacher at Marshpoint Elementary. “When I learned that they were touring the eastern coast of the U.S, I wrote to ask if they would make a stop in Savannah. My fellow CYC Board members and I are thrilled that they have graciously agreed, and furthermore delighted that the African Children’s Choir has invited singers from Coastal Youth Choirs and Marshpoint Elementary Chorus to join them onstage for one song. What an incredible experience this will be for our choristers and all those in attendance!”
“We are pleased to offer this concert as a part of our international choir exchange program. The concert attendees will fall in love with the African Children’s Choir and their mission for the children of Africa.” explains executive and artistic director Gif Lockley. “We are also pleased the Desoto Hotel, Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, and First Baptist Church Savannah have agreed to offer assistance and sponsorship of the concert.”
Mark your calendars now for an evening of celebration through song and dance. For up-to-date information about the concert, visit the concert’s Facebook event page: fb.me/e/416B0xAnC.
