When hail damage assaults your commercial roof, you should seriously consider filing an insurance claim and have the damage addressed.
Do I Need to File a Claim?
Whether you need to file a roof insurance claim for hail damage depends largely on the type of roof you have and the severity of the damage.
First and foremost, a qualified commercial roofer should be brought in to inspect your roof following a hailstorm and to assess the damage with an expert eye. The roofer can determine the severity of the damage and advise you regarding what needs to be done to address it.
Certain types of commercial roofs withstand hail better than others. Thus, if you have a heartier roof type, you may be able to pass through a hailstorm relatively unscathed and not need repairs or to file an insurance claim.
For instance, metal roofing will typically get dented by hail, but it’s often just cosmetic damage and won’t impair the functionality of your roof. A thermoplastic roof, on the other hand, can be quite susceptible to damage from even small hailstones if the membrane is older and has begun to deteriorate.

Unfortunately, the industry is full of roofers who are not experienced, cut corners and don’t follow correct procedures in repairing roofs. So, always remember that “cheap” isn’t what matters when hiring a roofer. An inexperienced roofing contractor who charges less than a more established roofer may save you money in the moment—but a failed roof and much bigger expenses down the road due to shoddy workmanship is often the consequence.
The bottom line: It’s best to do things right the first time and to hire a roofer who is vetted, licensed and has a good track record.
