Here are some things to consider before calling your Insurance company.
Shingle Mineral Deposits
Check all around spouts. Hail damage is when the hail strikes the shingles of a roof with such impact that it degrades the shingle, In most cases, this damage cannot be seen by the untrained eye. If you have standard asphalt shingle only on your house, you will want to check around the downspouts for excessive tile granuals. If evident, there is strong evidence of roof damage due to the hail storm. However, this may simply be due to the age of roofing material.

Check gutters and Downspouts. Inspect all your gutters and downspouts for dings. Some of the newer gutters are thin enough the hail size of a marble will easily dent the metal. Once again, is evident, then the possibility of roof damage exists, learn more.
Inspect for Leaks
Hail damage is not always apparent from the ground or to the untrained professional.All too often,hail damage is not discovered until after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Roof damage does not always cause immediate leaks. As damaged shingles degrade, your roof may begin to leak. Inspect your ceiling after heavy rains for any apparent water damage.
Hail damage may be apparent if you see damage like the this roof vent.
Hail Damage Shingle
Inspect the roof. We do not recommend for you personally to access the roof, the slopes may be to steep for the untrained professional.
Call one of our roofing specialists, we will inspect the vents,,drip edge, fascia and gutters for any signs of damage. We will inspect the roof shingles for circular dimple areas where the shingle mineral is missing. Hail might produce a dent of damage point in the asphalt shingle roof surface, resulting in granule loss and reduce remaining roof life. If your roof has 10 hits or more in a 10ft square, then your roof most likely needs replacing.
