7 Yr roof. Fiberglass is seen on edges, gouges/impact areas. Only on the small portion of the roof around satellite dish.Shingles still look intact.
Absolutely mechanical damage. Hail never gets that concentrated and intense in such a small area.
Way too concentrated for hail. Looks like either that dish or the one before it fell and messed up the shingles.
Some of the marks almost look like foot prints.
Bigfoot was there. You have to walk like a cat on a roof
Workboots, asphalt shingles, and a scorching hot day don’t mix!!
Damned dish installers always find a way to 'eff up something!! Any inspector worth a shit would throw his ass under the bus!!
I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that thought that! Pics were hard to see on my phone but I thought some of the marks looked like boot treads…

# Shingle Damage Evaluation – Other Damages That May Be Mistaken for Hail Damage – Part 6c
Maurice Langsev, CPI, Central Oregon
We had a tornado with hail, go through our little town, we had a chance to look at a lot of hail damage. Hail damage would be consistent over the entire side exposed to the storm. Hail knocks off the granuals where you can see the substrate, at the bottom edge of the shingle it broke the body of the shingle off so you could see fiberglass.
The damage in your pictures is from an unconscious dish installer on a hot day.
Welcome to the forum Maurice, have fun and enjoy.
Yes, welcome to our forum, Maurice!..
Absolutely not hail damage
Yup, …what Jonas and Langsev said. Not hail.
Hail no!..mechanical damage.
Let’s keep this going maybe the Hulk was there?
Terry, InterNachi offers 2 excellent courses that will help you in the future determining cause of roof damage. One is “Wind and Hail Inspection and Roof Replacement” and “Inspecting Asphalt Shingle Roofs”
Wear to shingle butts is commonly caused by foot traffic.
