Pellet Impact Damage to Soft Metals

Posted by in Siding, Simple Forensic Methods | January 05, 2015

So, what does pellet impact damage look like in soft metals such as siding or a metal chimney?

See for yourself.

 

Figure PI-1 Pellet impact indentations on a chimney vent.

 

Figure PI-2 Close up of pellet impact indentations on a chimney vent.

 

Figure PI-3 Pellet indentation covered with paint.

 

We weren’t asked, but considering the direction of exposure of the siding and the chimney vent and the shape (direction) of the indentation, it can probably be determined from which property the pellets were fired.  But you probably knew that already. ; )
