 Paint Protection Goose Creek, SC

In today's hectic, always-on-the-go world, having a car is essential for transportation around the city. It's hard to imagine life without a car. Without them, you wouldn't be able to make it to work, the grocery store, the laundromat, or important events like your children's sports events. Having a vehicle is a necessity these days because we use them so much, but many car owners don't make strides to protect their investment or what might be inside that investment.

Aside from purchasing an extended warranty for your car, one of the best ways to protect your car is with professional vehicle window tinting in Goose Creek, SC. What a warranty won't do, however, is boost curb appeal, reduce sun glare, block harmful radiation, protect your valuables, and provide privacy 24-hours a day.

Meet Your Certified Vehicle Window Tinting Installer

Stephon and his wife, both originally from the chilly state of Pennsylvania, moved to Goose Creek, SC, for the warm beach weather and friendly Lowcountry residents.

Though Stephon now has many years of car window tinting under his belt, his training was completed under one of the best car window tint installers in the United States. Installing window tints, paint protection films, and ceramic coatings alongside during this time helped Stephon learn all the techniques and tricks needed to succeed. After training up north, Stephon continued to learn in Texas, where he became a certified paint protection and window tint installer. Since that time, Stephon has mastered even more car protection techniques to offer his customers a comprehensive list of services.

Car Window Tinting
in Goose Creek, SC

Here is a simple truth: not all vehicle window tinting services are equal. Sure, you could spend a few bucks on a DIY window tinting kit, but going this route almost guarantees trouble. From unsightly fading to film bubbles, these offer the bare minimum in protection. With subpar quality, these kits also peel very quickly, causing you to spend more money to re-apply or have your tint professionally installed.

Speaking of window tinting services, few companies in South Carolina combine professional applications with the highest quality window tint film available. That's what sets Troop Films apart from other window tinting businesses - quality film, expert application, meticulous attention to detail, and the best customer service available.

Unlike some of our competitors, we use SunTek ceramic window tinting film, which is among the best in the industry. This technologically advanced product line provides outstanding, top-of-the-line films. With ceramic technology, infrared rejection and solar performance are enhanced, resulting in a non-metal construction that doesn't cause interference with portable or onboard electronic devices.

Our SunTek ceramic tint options come in a range of nine darkness levels. Each shade of tint has an ultra-attractive appearance, is non-reflective, and helps prevent color changes. With this fantastic film, you, your passengers, and your vehicle's interior are protected from 99% of UV rays from the sun. With outstanding infrared and heat rejection properties, your vehicle's interior comfort remains cooler and more comfortable all year long.

Most Common Reasons to Tint
Your Vehicle's Windows

Here are just a few of the most common reasons why South Carolina vehicle owners choose Troop Films for window tinting:

Privacy

Privacy

When we ask our customers why they want to tint their windows, privacy is often first on their list. When you begin to think about it, it makes sense. Why allow other drivers to invade your privacy when you can keep prying eyes off of your identity and personal belongings? It's not unreasonable to want privacy for you and your family while you're driving. You never know who you will pull up next to at a red light, and with our vehicle window tinting services in Goose Creek, SC, they don't have to know you either.

Style

Style

There's something inherently cool about having your windows tinted. Even if you're not trying to impress anyone with your car, having your windows tinted helps give it a refined, modern look, which enhances curb appeal. If you're getting tired of the way your car or truck's exterior looks, spice it up a little and bring it into Troop Films for professional window tinting. We think you will be happy with the results.

Comfort

Comfort

Have you ever sat down in your vehicle in the middle of summer, after it's been sitting outside all day? It feels like your car has turned into an oven. Sometimes, it can get so hot in your car that it's hard to grip the steering wheel. As you probably already know, summers in South Carolina can be brutal. When the temperatures heat up in the Lowcountry, your vehicle traps most of that heat, causing interior temperatures to reach unsafe levels. But when you have your windows tinted with Troop Films, your car will stay cooler in the spring and summer. With ceramic film, glare from headlights and streetlights is also reduced, meaning you can see easier without having to strain your eyes. More comfort and more safety - what's not to love?

Health and Safety

Health and Safety

When you think about car window tinting, most folks don't think about the health and safety benefits involved. But when it comes to you and your passengers, safety should be top of your list. High temps in your vehicle, usually caused by UV rays, are a safety concern not only for your skin and eyes but for your car's safety mechanisms. This is especially true for your airbags, which can be damaged and left inoperable when interior temperatures are high enough. Obviously, that's a huge safety risk.

Fading Dashboard

Fading Dashboard

Over time, your vehicle's dashboard will take a beating when your car is left out in the sun. The combo of harmful UV rays and high heat can ruin dashboard materials, leaving them cracked, faded, and in need of repair. Fixing your dashboard can be a costly endeavor. However, doing so can be avoided with high-quality ceramic tints from Troop Films.

The Ultimate Protection: Car
Window Tinting and Paint
Protection Film in Goose Creek, SC

They say the first cut is always the deepest, and that's certainly true when it comes to your vehicle. Few things are as frustrating as getting out of your car, only to realize that a stray rock has dented your favorite car or truck. Dents and scratches from road debris like rocks and even acids from bugs all take their toll on your vehicle's overall appearance and value. Along with UV rays, "road rash" from winter salt, sand, rocks, pebbles, branches, and more will compromise your vehicle's integrity and can mean lower resale value.

If you're looking for total protection from heat and UV rays as well as road debris, we recommend car window tinting in Goose Creek, SC along with our paint protection film application. Paint protection film, also called your vehicle's clear bra, provides a shield of protection from road rash, preserves your car's paint job, increases its longevity, and can increase its resale value. Paint protection film is very useful for everyday use, especially if you're driving on the highway or simply want to protect your favorite car. Clear bras are also helpful for work vehicles, which often receive dents and scratches due to the nature of their work.

At Troop Film, our SunTek paint protection film is among the highest quality films in the industry. Common application areas include:

  • Vehicle Paint
  • Door Handles
  • Headlights
  • Rear Fenders
  • Front Bumpers
  • Mirrors
  • Hoods
 PPF Goose Creek, SC

Our paint protection films are completely reinvented products that merge the hydrophobicity of ceramic with premium, self-healing paint protection film. Common benefits of having your vehicle protected with paint film include:

01

Endurance

Your car's finish will stay flawless and fresh with our car protection films, which shield against salt, rocks, insects, and other debris.

02

Resistance

Our HydroResist top-coat protection boosts your vehicle's stain resistance by limiting dirt and water accumulation on your protection film's surface.

03

Self-Healing

It sounds too good to be true, but our films really do heal themselves by using the heat from the sun or your vehicle's engine.

04

Look Great

Our paint protection films are available in high gloss and matte finishes, leaving your car with outstanding optics and clarity.

Goose Creek NAACP concerned over law that could impact school board

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – The Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP is expressing concerns about a new state law that could impact the Berkeley County School Board.Bill S910 says the Berkeley County School Board should have nine members, of which eight should be elected from single-member districts where they reside, while one member should be elected from the county at large.Board members ...

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – The Goose Creek Chapter of the NAACP is expressing concerns about a new state law that could impact the Berkeley County School Board.

Bill S910 says the Berkeley County School Board should have nine members, of which eight should be elected from single-member districts where they reside, while one member should be elected from the county at large.

Board members previously expressed their concern over the new law. Now, the Goose Creek NAACP said they are planning to hold a public meeting to address the same concerns.

“Bill S910 has been passed through the Senate and House with minimum community input, and we’re concerned that the community that it will affect doesn’t know the ramifications of the bill,” said Sharina Haynes, president, of the Goose Creek NAACP.

One of their main concerns is how the law, which was signed by Governor Henry McMaster this year, changes the makeup of the board.

“Eliminating a minority seat in addition to that will also include adding an at-large member. So we want the community to come out and let them know about what is happening with this bill, the ramifications of it, how we got here, and who got this passed.”

Haynes said the elimination of a minority seat also means two minority members of the board will have to run against each other in November. They are also concerned about how the law cuts in half the four-year term in which several board members were elected in 2020 since the new law required all members to run for re-election this year.

“We have members of the school board who were elected in November 2020 and with this new bill they will have their terms decreased from four years to two years,” said Haynes.

The school board is in the process of filing a lawsuit over the new law, and the Goose Creek NAACP says they believe that step may be needed since the law is already in effect.

That is why they plan to hold a public meeting in a week and a half. “And let everyone know that there are some ramifications that will affect your children with the passing of this S910 bill.”

That meeting will take place on Saturday, July 9.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — Amazing to think, it is ten years later.

2012. A month, that touched a nerve. A time, that transcended sports.

The Goose Creek Gators, in the playoffs, looking to defend their 2011 state championship in football. Pulled from the playoffs, season over, for self-reporting an ineligible player.

That player, Justice Rogers, a transfer from Berkeley High School.

On Monday, Justice Rogers died inside the Berkeley County jail of an apparent medical incident at the age of 27, according to Berkeley County authorities. The county saying, they exhausted all life saving efforts. Rogers was incarcerated for several traffic incidents.

As we look back on that time, we look back at that situation, so much has transpired since. Chuck Reedy, the former Goose Creek head football coach, remembers the situation well.

“The purpose of it was to benefit him. He wasn’t going to benefit our team, because he didn’t have the skill set," Reedy said. "I think he benefitted greatly by being part of the team, and it gave him some identity prior to all his notoriety.”

The original transfer papers from Berkeley to Goose Creek cleared Rogers to play. But, when head basketball coach Blake Hall was going through transcripts for basketball season, he flagged Rogers for inability.

“Thirteen plays all season is what it amounted to. The other kids, they liked him. Easy going. A nice guy," Reedy said. "He had some learning disabilities, they all tried to help him. The games that he got into, he didn’t know what to do a lot of times. It was always at the end of games that we were way ahead. They would encourage him and try to get him lined up right.”

“I like being around the people on the Goose Creek team. Goose Creek is the best school I’ve been to, period.”

Chuck Reedy reflected on the passing Tuesday after reading about it in the morning paper.

“Hated to see it, kind of a strange way, as I read in the paper. I think he benefitted greatly coming from Berkeley. Got a fresh start with us. It was an opportunity to be a part of a really good football team and manager of basketball. Gave him some sort of accomplishment, he did make friends while he was there. It was a tough situation when we went through what we went through- nobody ever blamed him. It wasn’t him, not his fault. He didn’t try to deceive anybody. He was a failure in the system, but I think we offered and gave him something he didn’t have before he came to Goose Creek.”

Goose Creek mayor defends development after resident concerns

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Goose Creek resident Lisa Berry has lived in the West Greenview Acres neighborhood since 2004. She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Goose Creek resident Lisa Berry has lived in the West Greenview Acres neighborhood since 2004. She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.

She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback. To her understanding, a road was going to run adjacent to her home and go to Red Bank Road, and a playground with a parking lot was going to be built on the other side of her property. She said those plans were concerning.

She posted in a Facebook group for Goose Creek residents, trying to inform her neighbors about what was going on. She said she was inspired to speak up; and said there should be no more construction.

“I was driving down Red Bank Road, and by the rural fire department, they have a marquee; it’s a flashing sign that changes,” Berry said. “It said, ‘if not you, then who?”

Berry’s post got the attention of Mayor Greg Habib, who responded in his own post in the group. He said he felt the need to give an explanation about what their processes are, what they are trying to accomplish, and how growth is important.

Berry met with the mayor Wednesday morning, and she discovered that there was an updated plan. She said that now instead of a road next to her house, it is proposed to be a walking trail, and the playground plans have changed as well. Habib said it is going to be a mix of townhomes and single-family homes with a commercial element on Red Bank Road.

One of the concerns that Berry had was that the property floods. Habib said the only way the flooding problems are going to go away is if someone develops the property properly.

“I knew it had a flooding problem,” Habib said. “We told the developer when he first came to us, you have to address flooding in this area if you’re gonna do anything here, and what the developer has proposed is a stormwater plan that actually takes water from off the property onto his own property to mitigate the flooding problems that are there now.”

Now Berry said she is not opposed to development but wants it to be done in a smart way.

“We have to change,” Berry said. “We can’t just stay the same. I just want it to be an informed decision where all citizens understand what’s going on and can voice their concerns, and if we don’t share that information then people are left out.”

It is not the first time that development concerns have been expressed in rapidly growing Goose Creek, or in the Lowcountry. Goose Creek is now the 8th largest city in South Carolina.

“We’re 47,000 people,” Habib said. “We are not a small town in small-town America anymore.”

Habib said he often hears concerns about traffic issues. He said the greatest tool to reduce traffic is economic development and putting people and businesses closer together.

“We got traffic here,” Habib said. “How do you mitigate that? Well, understanding that not building anymore is not an option, so how do you then mitigate it there is your plan for it, you do it right, and you do it in a way that makes sense.”

Habib said there are over 5,000 homes entitled to go up in the city. Habib said some of those are going to create more traffic than others because they are on the outskirts of the city. Until there is commercial development there, those people will have to drive into the main commercial section of the city to get what they need. He said they need to get commercial development out to those areas as fast as they can to mitigate the traffic.

“If we’re gonna build houses, which we know we have to, we’re going to insist developers to build communities,” Habib said.

Habib said they cannot sit by as development happens. Instead, they need to participate in it and make it look like what they want it to be.

There will be a public hearing regarding the aforementioned planned development on July 5 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

SC fines MUSC, other Charleston area health centers for improper medical waste disposal

The Medical University of South Carolina and one of its health centers were two of several Charleston area entities fined by the state for improperly disposing of infectious medical waste.Among the waste, which ended up in multiple landfills throughout the area, were needles and medical equipment still containing blood and other bodily fluids, much of it packaged improperly in containers not sturdy enough to prevent leaks or punctures, according to S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors in reports the agency sh...

The Medical University of South Carolina and one of its health centers were two of several Charleston area entities fined by the state for improperly disposing of infectious medical waste.

Among the waste, which ended up in multiple landfills throughout the area, were needles and medical equipment still containing blood and other bodily fluids, much of it packaged improperly in containers not sturdy enough to prevent leaks or punctures, according to S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control inspectors in reports the agency shared June 29 with The Post and Courier.

MUSC and Ashley River Tower on Courtenay Drive were each fined $58,000, according to documents from DHEC. The Ashley River Tower facility specializes in digestive health, heart and vascular care.

Also named were Trident Medical Center in North Charleston, which was fined $55,000, and Naval Health Clinic Charleston in Goose Creek, which was fined $14,000.

Spokewoman Heather Woolwine confirmed MUSC has been working with DHEC to correct the problems, which the Charleston County Landfill drew attention to last fall.

“We immediately reached out to both our landfill and DHEC partners to determine the scope of the issue and to address it as quickly and as comprehensively as possible,” Woolwine said in a statement. “MUSC took and continues to take extra steps to audit its waste to ensure it is being correctly sorted before sending it for appropriate disposal.”

DHEC began looking into the issue in September, after a site manager for the Charleston County Landfill reported receiving multiple shipments of medical waste, which the landfill wasn’t permitted to receive. During several inspections over the following weeks, authorities found glass medicine vials, IV tubing and other tubing containing blood, pieces of bodily tissue, multiple biohazard specimen bags, needle tips with enclosed blood, a pump containing blood and documents identifying MUSC as generator of the waste.

Oakridge and Berkeley County landfills also improperly received shipments of infectious waste from MUSC.

In total, MUSC was fined $116,000 for the violations, both of which have been paid in full, DHEC reported.

Charleston County Landfill and Republic Services Waste Transfer Station in North Charleston also received multiple shipments of infectious waste from Trident Medical Center last fall.

Like Charleston County Landfill, Republic is not permitted to receive infectious waste, according to the documents DHEC provided to The Post and Courier.

However, state inspectors reported finding bloody surgical trays, clear bags containing solid and infectious waste, needles and glass medicine vials.

Findings at Charleston County Landfill from Trident in October included bloody surgical table drapes, intubation equipment and supersaturated gauze.

“We’re committed to complying with regulations, and we quickly took steps to address the findings,” said Rod Whiting, spokesman for Trident. “Our efforts have been centered around colleague training and education. We want to make sure we are doing all we can to keep our colleagues, patients and community safe.”

And in November, Moncks Corner-based solid waste processor Repower South Berkeley received multiple shipments of barbed dental broaches, glass carpules, dental burrs and needles from Naval Health Clinic in November.

Naval Health Clinic did not respond to requests for comment, but documents provided by DHEC state the clinic conducted additional staff training and internal audits in response to the state health agency’s findings.

Like MUSC, DHEC reported Trident and Naval Health Clinic have corrected the violations and paid their fines in full.

The reports come the month after DHEC leveled Roper St. Francis with a fine for similar violations around the same time.

The Post and Courier reported last month that two of Roper St. Francis’ hospitals, Roper Hospital in Charleston and Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital in West Ashley, repeatedly mishandled medical waste sent to Charleston County landfills in September and October.

A state inspector found bags filled with bloody gauze, gloves, medical vials and papers from Roper that were open and spilling onto the ground on several occasions.

Roper Hospital in Charleston was fined $50,000 and Bon Secours in West Ashley was fined $54,000, which has been paid in full, according to spokesman Andy Lyons.

Roper and Bon Secours both responded to DHEC’s violations with corrective actions including a waste management plan that cost the hospital system $114,000.

3 new restaurants on the way to Charleston area in Mount Pleasant, Cainhoy and Goose Creek

A Mount Pleasant retail center where a new outdoor gear store plans to open will soon see a new restaurant. Two other new dining spots are in the works across the Charleston region as well.

Pasture & Grain plans to open in July at 1701 Shoremeade Road in the Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17 where national sporting goods retailer REI announced this week plans to open in the fall in the former GreenWise Market grocery store space.

The restaurant is taking over the space vacated in May by Blaze Pizza, which closed after three years. A sign on the door says Blaze is relocating, but the new site is not mentioned, and a company representative did not respond for comment.

Pasture & Grain owner and chef Ira Hill said the 2,800-square-foot venue will serve American fare priced from $8 to $18. Meats, vegetables, grains, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and toast with spreads are on the menu. Sous chef will be Brandon Brown.

The shopping center also saw the recent departure of gastro pub Bull & Finch, which closed in May after nine months.

What’s cooking?

Two other restaurants also are on the way to the Charleston area.

In Cainhoy, a new venue by Florie’s Dining Group is planned for 1937 Clements Ferry Road, Unit B, beside Dog & Duck restaurant and bar.

“My concept has changed since I purchased the place in January,” said Brannon Florie. “Honestly, I’m still between two concepts. The space is small, so I am trying to make the best use of the space and still capitalize on what we are missing out here. I’ve lived on Clements Ferry for about eight years now.”

He’s leaning toward calling it Po Boy — Southern Refuge and Bar.

Florie doesn’t have an opening date, but he is eyeing the end of summer for a launch.

Florie’s Dining Group includes Pier 41 and The Basement in northern Mount Pleasant and Florie’s at Commonhouse Aleworks in North Charleston.

Florie said he’s considering a couple of other concepts for the northern side of the Charleston area but has nothing to announce.

Also on the way is a new restaurant in a former Pizza Hut in Goose Creek.

Pho Bowl LLC recently applied for a beer and wine license at 142 St. James Ave., Suite D, beside Food Lion supermarket. An opening date has not been announced.

Driving costs

South Carolina drivers can count on doling out even more more for the already-exorbitant cost of gasoline, starting in July.

The state’s gas tax will rise by 2 cents a gallon next month, the last of six annual increases passed by the General Assembly in 2017 to help pay for road, bridge and infrastructure construction.

The 2-cent tack-on will boost the tax to 28 cents per gallon.

Drivers in the Palmetto State are paying an average of $4.54 a gallon as of June 8, according to online fuel information provider GasBuddy. That’s up $1.76 from last year at this time. The national average is $4.97 per gallon, up $1.90 from one year ago.

The higher price of fuel is partially the result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Prices were already rising before the war.

Now serving

Toast! All Day is now open with a second location in downtown Charleston.

Charleston Hospitality Group recently opened the sixth Toast location in the Lowcountry at 453 King St. in the former Monza pizzeria, which closed in February after a 13-year run.

Along with Southern comfort food offerings, the restaurant has incorporated the original wood-fired ovens to offer pizza as well. The menu also features seafood baskets, salads and sandwiches, as well as drink specials and artisan coffee selections.

The other downtown Toast is at 155 Meeting St. Two others are in Mount Pleasant, with one each in Summerville and West Ashley.

The restaurant group also includes Eli’s Table, Queology, John King Bar & Grill, all in Charleston, and Honky Tonk Saloon in Ladson.

Relocated

Skatell’s Manufacturing Jewelers of West Ashley has moved to a new location.

The jewelry store is now at 821 Orleans Road after moving from 1798 Ashley River Road, according to owners Nan Butler and husband Jason, who also own the store in Mount Pleasant.

The scoop

Ye Ole Fashioned Cafe & Ice Cream Parlor will host the grand opening of its new location in West Ashley on June 10 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an ice cream special all day.

Officials will snip the ribbon at 11 a.m., and small cups of ice cream in 32 flavors will be offered all day for 99 cents at the new restaurant at 1319 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in Ashley Landing Shopping Center.
