Blue Diamond 3000 Slates
Blue Diamond 3000 slates are manufactured to the highest industry standards and specifications to withstand the harsh Irish climate while maintaining a superior diamond-hard smooth finish that not only enhances the roof but also the aesthetics of the house or building’s brick, stone, cement, or wood facade.
