What to Do If Your Home was Hit by Hail:

Get a roof inspection from a reputable, local roofing company.

Many homeowners call their insurance company first, however, your roof may not have damage. In this case you may have this “claim” count against you anyway. Start with a free, no-obligation roof inspection and get a detailed inspection report.

If you have damage, make a claim with your insurance.

With your inspection report in hand you can file your claim on your homeowner’s policy with confidence. Your insurance company will likely ask you if your roof has already been inspected and if you have selected a contractor. Keep in mind, you can work with any roofing company you wish. It is entirely your choice.

Have your insurance adjuster and your roofer inspect your roof together.

When they inspect the roof together, they are more likely to be on the same page about what will be covered by insurance. This will save you a lot of back and forth phone calls. And you will be able to get the project started more quickly.


This damage may be covered under your warranty with Premier Roofing, but be sure not have another roofing company do any work on your roof as it will void your warranty.

Please schedule a roof inspection with us and we will send out a roofing specialist to inspect your roof and let you know if you have damage that can be repaired under warranty. If it is bad enough to need a new insurance claim, we can help you through this process again.
