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 Tulsa, OK.

Whether you own a small, secluded ranch-style home or a sprawling mansion in the suburbs, we have the expertise and tools to accommodate any job. Do you need a small leak fixed on your asphalt roof?

We will build you a new roof from scratch, using high-quality materials. If you have a vision, we can make it a reality.

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 Tulsa.
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 Tulsa, 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 Tulsa, OK, 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
TULSA, Okla. - Countless tires along the Arkansas River in Tulsa have been dug up and are standing up, leading to a lot of people asking questions.News On 6 tracked down the man who has been working hard to send a message. ...
TULSA, Okla. -
News On 6 tracked down the man who has been working hard to send a message. Zane Bettis has been digging the last five days, but he is not tired. The 26-year-old Tulsan said he has always wanted to do something to help the environment, and now the rubber finally meets the road. He has walked at least half a mile through the river, rotating the tires and standing them up.
"It's ready for somebody to roll it on out and take it where it needs to go," said Bettis.
He said he did not do it for attention, but the topic has inflated.
"Standing them up has been a way that if I do get people to help, it's much easier for people to see the tires as to where to go and grab it and bring it back," explained Bettis.
Bettis also said he was pumped when he saw more tires standing up after a mysterious person helped. He hopes others feel the pressure to do their part to protect wildlife. The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality told News On 6 that it has a tire recycling program but not enough staff to spare for tire dumps.
"That's not something we have the resources for, so we'd certainly love to get any help we can from the public if they see a tire dump or they know of one, then we can figure out how to get out there and do something about it," explained Erin Hatfield with Oklahoma DEQ.
Bettis said he will not tread lightly, promising to continue getting fresh air and rolling with whoever wants to stand up against flat-out tire dumping.
"I would hope that if people like what they see, then they would be inspired to try and go and instill in their community an example to follow," said Bettis.
If you know of any illegal dumping, you are asked to contact your local authorities.

Monkeypox is a reportable disease in Oklahoma as an unusual condition. Monkeypox is a rash that can look like pimples or blisters on the face, the inside of the mouth, hands, feet, chest, genitals, or anus. Monkeypox infections are typically not severe; symptoms are usually similar to the flu with a rash and resolve within 2-4 weeks.
The general population is currently at low risk for contracting monkeypox, but careful surveillance of the outbreak by the public health and health care sectors is needed. Medical providers should be on alert for any patient who is experiencing a rash that is characteristic of monkeypox and follow CDC guidelines on next steps, including infection control, testing, and reporting.
According to CDC and other public health laboratory officials, current U.S. testing capacity is sufficient, but capacity is being added in commercial and public health laboratories in case it is needed.
Monkeypox spreads in different ways. The virus can spread from person-to-person through:
Any person, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, can acquire and spread monkeypox. Currently, a large proportion of the known monkeypox cases are among men who have sex with men.
Traveling to a country currently experiencing an outbreak could increase your risk of contracting monkeypox. If you are planning international travel, check that country’s infection rate on the WHO website. If necessary, consult your doctor about getting a monkeypox vaccination before traveling, or if you have been exposed.
The spread of monkeypox is different than the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic:
Symptoms of monkeypox can include:
A rash that can look like pimples or blisters that appears on the face, inside the mouth, and on other parts of the body, like the hands, feet, chest, genitals or anus.
The rash goes through different stages before healing completely. The illness typically lasts 2-4 weeks. Sometimes, people get a rash first, followed by other symptoms. Others only experience a rash.
If you are concerned about having monkeypox symptoms or exposure, please contact the THD Epi-on-Call, 918-595-4399 or your healthcare provider for advice, testing and medical care. Recommendations for testing &/or vaccination will be provided based on the screening and assessment by THD epidemiologists. Self-isolate away from others to protect them from infection. Cover all possible blisters.
If you have been exposed, monitor yourself for symptoms for 21 days from exposure. If symptoms develop, self-isolate away from others and contact the THD Epi-on-Call or your healthcare provider for advice and testing.

Exhibit presents New Work from AK Hardeman and Bethany Mabee opening August 18th
TULSA, OK, USA, August 18, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- AK Hardeman & Bethany Mabee | New Work3524B S. Peoria Ave. , Tulsa, OKAugust 12th through October 1st, 2022
Exhibit is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by artists, AK Hardeman and Bethany Mabee. The show debuts August 18th via abersonexhibits.com. Exhibit by Aberson is located at 3524B S Peoria Avenue, Tulsa OK 74105.
AK was born and raised in Alabama. As an artist, AK is interested in the interaction of color and how the arrangements of color create a work of art. Her focus is on colors that express her emotions and feelings in an image that leaves the viewers room to interpret and unravel their own meaning. ??To Hardeman, color is expressed in all of our surroundings, especially in nature and science. She focuses on colors that express my emotions and feelings in an image that leaves the viewer room to interpret. AK enjoys working with various mediums from oil paint to markers to create her works on canvas and paper.
There is rarely a point I try to get across, a statement I try to make, or a system of signs I wish to give a message or meaning. I am simply interested in the use of color and aesthetic freedom. I try to create the semblance of an object that gives rise to the viewer’s own emotions and feelings. My goal is for viewers to invent and unravel their own meaning.
Bethany is an abstract painter based in Peoria IL. She loves using my time in the studio to explore the truest versions of herself and hopes that doing so will spark a connection for her viewers. Mabee is fascinated by the ever-changing, yet cyclical nature of being human. She enjoys the improvisational roller-coaster of abstract painting. It has strengthened her ability to make choices that are guided by her intuition and create from a place of her own. Mabee loves that artwork offers the viewer a similar experience of reacting from a place of their own and adding elements of those reflections in their home through a piece that they connect with. She is amazed by the layers we have, the pasts that have conditioned us and the cyclical lenses that we see ourselves and the world through.
We are all like little onions, constantly discovering and revealing new layers of ourselves over time. It excites me to find parallels to this in my painting process. My paintings reveal themselves to me, layer by layer, with so many opportunities for happy mistakes, surprise reactions, or, in some cases, wrong turns to recover from.

Years from now, only a few will remember offhand who won the 2022 Little League World Series. But Tulsa’s Isaiah Jarvis will never be forgotten.
Jarvis showed the world a side of humanity we all needed to see. He gave everyone a most talked-about moment of kindness and sportsmanship.
While at bat at the Little League World Series Southwest Regional tournament in Waco recently for the Tulsa Nationals team, Jarvis was hit by a pitch that went wild. It wasn’t purposeful; the throw obviously just got away from the pitcher.
Jarvis went down hard, helmet flying off as the ball hit the side of his head. Almost immediately, the pitcher from the Pearland, Texas, team became visibly upset.
After Jarvis was declared good to go and made his way to first base, the pitcher had trouble regaining his composure, tears still flowing.
That’s when Jarvis walked to the pitcher’s mound to give his opponent a hug and reassurance, as if it were the most natural thing to do.
“If I was in that position and just hit a kid in the head and almost gave him a concussion, I would be (crying), too. So I was just going over to make sure that he knows I’m OK and he doesn’t need to be crying because I’m just fine,” Jarvis told the Tulsa World’s John Tranchina.
What a reassuring demonstration of empathy. It brought tears to many who watched the scene as it circulated online.
“I was crying like a baby. It was one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen,” said the Tulsa coach, Sean Kouplen.
He isn’t alone, and he’s right. Jarvis reminded everyone that some things transcend competition and all the trappings that go with it.
Too often youth sports emphasizes winning by besting your opponent at all costs. That ignores some greater lessons to be learned. That one-sided focus could continue through life, adding to what seems an ever-divided country of us versus them.
The more cynical among us will see that act of compassion and wonder why Jarvis didn’t act tougher or exact retaliation. That’s corrosive thinking.
Jarvis acted honorably, admirably representing Tulsa and Oklahoma. We are well-served to remember that it’s possible to be competitors and friends.
When youth sports is done well, everyone benefits. And everyone can learn from Isaiah Jarvis.

Eye-grabbing costumes should make downtown Tulsa extra photogenic this week.
Tokyo, OK — formerly known as Tokyo in Tulsa — is an established pop culture convention with a flavor all its own. It’s a fan-based convention with a focus on Japanese anime, Japanese culture and Japanese pop culture. Mission: Educate and build community through entertainment.
Tokyo, OK 2022 will take place Friday through Sunday with programming at multiple downtown venues, including the Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place, 17West, Courtyard by Marriott and Aloft Tulsa Downtown. For tickets, go to tokyointulsa.com.
Con activities will launch with a themed charity ball (Magical Girls vs. the Horde of the Undead) 8 p.m. Thursday, July 28, at the Promenade Ballroom inside the Hyatt Regency. Entry is $10 to the ball, which benefits Art4orms.
A homegrown success story, Tokyo in Tulsa started as a Halloween block party for a local anime store. The block party drew about 500 people — enough to start the wheels turning for the creation of a convention. The con experienced attendance jumps of 30 and 40 percent in some years. By the time the event celebrated a 10th anniversary at Cox Business Convention Center in 2017, attendance was near 10,000.
Tokyo in Tulsa became Tokyo in Broken Arrow (in geography if not in name) in 2019. The con relocated to Broken Arrow and shuttles were used to transport attendees to and from venues.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no Tokyo in Tulsa in 2020. The convention returned to downtown Tulsa in 2021 with the Hyatt Regency serving as the con’s HQ. Show organizers remain vigilant in the fight against the pandemic. Read more about the con’s COVID-19 policy at tokyointulsa.com.
Amber Lee Connors, Cole Feuchter, Barry Yandell, John Swasey, Kent Williams, Kiba Walker and Wendy Powell will be voice actor guests at the con, which will feature more than 300 hours of programming related to anime, gaming (console, arcade, PC, LARP, CCG, laser tag, tabletop), Japanese culture, Tulsa culture, art, writing and music.
Tokyo, OK is partnering with local businesses like Warguts E-sports and Dice Addiction for electronic and tabletop gaming.
Zac Murphy, Tokyo OK’s director of public relations, partner services and technology, said Warguts will be providing prize-based tournaments, all of which will be live-streamed, as well as free play and pop-up matches. Murphy said Dice Addiction will provide demonstrations of tabletop games, pop-up matches and an event-wide Pokemon match, with gyms at most event locations for battles with willing challengers.
One of Tokyo, OK’s most popular attractions is a shopping bazaar, a vendor room with merchants from all over the country. The shopping bazaar is open 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
The opening ceremony is 2 p.m. Friday with events throughout the remainder of the day. Programming includes a Pokemon panel (4 p.m.), a K-pop Olympics (5 p.m.), a blast to the past panel on fandom culture (6 p.m.) and an age-18-and-up panel on con horror stories (9:30 p.m.). For a complete list of Friday programming, go here.
Programming and panel topics on Saturday will include figure collecting (1:30 p.m.), What Video Game Tune is That? (2 p.m.), cosplay for beginners (3:30 p.m.), 18-up anime Family Feud (6 p.m.) and an Avengers dating game (9 p.m.). For a complete list of Saturday programming, go here.
Sunday programming will begin with fandom lip sync battles at 11 a.m. For a complete list of Sunday programming, go here.
Contests are part of Tokyo, OK. Video contest entries will be viewable in the Oklahoma Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. In addition to an amateur art contest and a Gundam modeling contest, there will be cosplay contests. Awards for the cosplay contests will be awarded at the cosplay stage show, scheduled 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency.
In addition to a main cosplay contest and a skit cosplay contest (where participants are judged based on performance), Tokyo, OK is offering a hall cosplay contest judged solely on photos taken at the cosplay registration booth located in the artist and vendor area. Participants will be judged on how they and their costume photographs, so they’ll need to “strike a pose” for the best presentation possible. One entry per day is allowed.
Tokyo, OK is great for photos and photo shoots, according to cosplayer Nikki Moriarty. Be aware of this: Though costumes are photogenic, a cardinal rule of cosplay etiquette is to ask permission before snapping a photo of a cosplayer.
Some attendees invest significant time in plotting and creating the costumes — plural — they are going to wear at Tokyo, OK.
Moriarty, who is from the Shawnee area, prepared five cosplays for the convention, and she has been planning them for almost a year. She will be Swimsuit Mitsuri and Idol Misturi on Friday, Paladin Pidge and Casual Pidge on Saturday, Blue Bunny Sonico on Saturday night and My Melody on Sunday.
Moriarty said it took her two to three weeks to get everything together for Swimsuit Mitsuri (the wig takes her 8-10 hours to style), and Idol Mitsuri took two or three months.
“It was a lot of trying to figure things out and constantly redesigning to it both the idol and original vibes,” said Moriarty, who also took time to memorize a dance she will be performing.
Paladin Pidge took the shortest amount of prep time for Moriarty because the costume was borrowed. Casual Pidge, made primarily from different items assembled and fixed up to fit the character, took three weeks. Blue Bunny Sonico also took three weeks. The headset is hand made. Moriarty spent about two weeks working on My Melody. She designed the outfit herself.
“I love Tokyo, OK because it’s a fun place for nerds to gather,” Moriarty said. “You can easily find people who like the same fandom.”
Moriarty likes that she can buy anime merchandise there “without waiting forever” to buy similar merch from another seller. And then there’s this: “Tokyo, OK is the only con my cousin is able to go to, so it’s a place to have family time.”
