TPO Roof Hail Damage

Any one have experience with a TPO roof that has been exposed to severe hail (golf ball sized)? We had horrible storms last night which damaged both our cars including breaking one of the rear view mirrors. Not sure how tough I can expect it to be and how to tell if it is damaged.

I had this happen during the fall and found the roof survived with no problem. The slide toppers were damaged and needed to be replaced.

I would check the plastic vent covers. I would think the TPO roof would be fine.

Generally hail dents metal parts like bay doors.

Good news is they were fine as well. I don't know for sure but it looks like the hail was not the golf ball sized hail we had here at the house. My 4Runner looks like someone took a ball peen hammer to it for about 30 mins. We certainly had some wild weather here in East TN that is for sure. But compared to Alabama and some other places we got off easy.
