Hail Damaged Slate?


Does this look like hail damage or routine wear and tear? The area was hit pretty hard a few years ago so the copper valleys are dented up pretty bad. Some of the damage is obviously hail, e.g. where two pieces have semi circle damage next to each other, but I was curious if all the missing corners were likely caused by hail as well (or if that was likely just age).

It is curious that it is mostly right corners that are broken off.

Re: Hail Damaged Slate?


From the pic. it looks like most of the damage is in one area to me. With hail the damage would be more uniform I would think. Kind of looks like someone was up there walking around in that one area. Maybe it's just the picture angle or something though.
