A rockin’ style in the great outdoors

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BackyardDecorExterior

HR-052916-Big-Rock-2Stone has a way of completely transforming interior or exterior living spaces. Now you can do this quickly and easily with cast stone veneer made by Big Rock, Hawaii’s only source for beautiful Hawaiian stone.

Big Rock is exceptional. It manufactures and sells all sor ts of things that are unavailable anywhere else in the world. That’s because Big Rock specializes in making copies of its Hawaiian stones, and has been doing so since 1983.

You can cover any wall with stone veneer. Use it in the living room, on a fireplace wall, or even in the bathroom on the shower and tub enclosure for a tropical air. Big Rock also makes its exclusive “Pot Rocks” to install among the wall stone for planting to add a touch of greenery, or Bromeliads and Orchids for a splash of color.

Outdoors, the veneer also can be installed anywhere: as a wainscot on the bottom 3-foot area of the home, on the entry, the chimney, and to cover un-sightly cement walls. A fun idea is to create a simple mailbox base, simply by stacking CMU blocks to the desired height and then cover it all with veneer. This is an easy practice to learn and install yourself.

Big Rock specializes in Hawaiian stones such as Moss Rock, Coral, Lava and more. The company also is a distributor for Coronado Stone for those who prefer a more contemporary look. It is sold by the square foot, and is identical in appearance to natural stone, but weighs very little. It easily installs onto any existing surface — wood, cement, drywall, even metal and more. It goes up with a simple mixture of mortar and sand, and Big Rock sells its custom dyes to add to the mix for matching mortar.

If you are interested in a hands-on experience creating this stonewall transformation, Big Rock owners Brian Joy and Bonnie Cooper, will happily guide you through the easy process. All you will need to know, for the cost of your dream project, are the dimensions. Just call, drop by the showroom or email Bonnie at bcooper@bigrockhawaii.com and you will receive a materials quote.

Big Rock Stone Veneer is permanent, requires no maintenance and has a 50-year warranty. As the stone is locally manufactured on Oahu, stock is readily available and costly shipping charges are not an issue. Big rock ships to all outer islands weekly, and also to the Mainland.

Big Rock has an incredible variety of garden landscape items, too; moss rock pavers, boulders, waterfalls and all sorts of garden goodies. So, if you’re looking for something to improve your property and beautify the garden, star with a visit to Big Rock’s showroom in Mapunpuna. It’s a company that takes pride in offering quality products, backed by more than three decades of customer satisfaction.
