How to Know if Your Tulsa Roof Has Hail Damage
If hail just rolled through northeast Oklahoma, it’s always a good idea to give your roof a visual inspection.
You might have hail damage to your roof!
Experts say on average hail as small as 1″ in diameter can damage asphalt roof shingles.
If you don’t know the size of hail that hit your roof, you can check local weather reports.
You can also check out StormerSite.com for past reports and maps of hail that has been reported in the area.

If you are performing a visual inspection yourself, practice safety first.
Wait for storms to pass before going outside for a visual roof inspection.
Before looking at your roof…
You might get clues that point to roof hail damage by first looking at other areas of your property.
Look at your gutters and downspouts. Are they dented?
Look for damage to siding, window screens, landscaping, etc.
You might see light spots on fencing or your deck, where hail strikes scraped at those structures.
Look at your HVAC unit. After hail, you might see condenser fins bent.
If you see any of these things, there’s a good chance, you might have hail damage on your roof too.
While on the ground, walk around your house and look at your roof from ground level.
You might see dark spots on shingles, or cracked roof tiles.
If you feel comfortable on a ladder…
…you can take a closer look at your shingles over the eaves from various locations around your roof.
Look for punctures or places where granules have been knocked loose.
NOTE: Please don’t climb on your roof, unless you are experienced doing so.
