There is unquestionably a lot to be said for “experience.” Buying from a reputable local establishment that has been operating for many years is the smartest and safest way to go. An established company will be backed by its longstanding reputation, excellent warranty and quality workmanship. When you are spending money on home improvements or new home construction, you want to be assured that you are buying only the best, as you want it to last forever.

It’s often tempting to go with a cheaper product, but the most important thing to consider is whether it is a quality product, and whether it’s going to last and look beautiful for years. If a business has been manufacturing something for many years and is still operating, it obviously is doing something right so even if it costs a little bit more, that company’s product would be the wiser choice.

Only one local Oahu business has been manufacturing the highest quality cast stone veneer and garden products for nearly 35 years, and it is called Big Rock and its slogan is “We’re not your average rock group!” The fact that it is a highly regarded long-standing local company is shown by the way its customers spread the word, and refer their friends and neighbors. Big Rock is located on a one-acre property in Mapunapuna, where you will find the Big Rock factory, offices and unique outdoor and indoor showrooms.


Since all of the company’s Hawaiian cast stone veneer, stepping stones and garden products are manufactured right there, Big Rock is available to do custom work to make your dreams a reality, or to make special stones if necessary for your Moss Rock, Coral or Lava stone veneer.

The owners of the company are Brian Joy and Bonnie Cooper. They will work with you on your projects, calculating exactly what you need if it’s a stone veneer wall you’ve decided to do, or assist with suggestions for your landscape garden design.

All a person needs — so they know right to the penny what it will cost to create a stonewall on their property, clad some CMU or wooden columns or interior walls with rock — are the correct dimensions of your project. Bonnie, Brian or Lori (Garcia, office manager) will take this information over the phone, and get back to you with a materials quote.

Big Rock offers a 50-year warranty on its stone veneer, but in more than 30 years it has never had to replace any veneer. So, if you’re looking for something to improve your property and make your garden a pleasant place to relax, shop at a company with years of experience, and that takes pride in offering the public the quality that they pay for. You’ll be glad that you did. Stop by, call, or email for more information and to turn your dreams into reality.


Big Rock is an established Hawaiian company that started in 1983, and is a long-standing member of the Building Association of Hawaii, the Better Business Bureau and the National Federation of Independent Business. Since its inception, more than 6 million square feet of walls have been covered with Big Rock stone veneer, and countless thousands of its Moss Rock pavers, which Big Rock invented in the early ’80s. You quite simply cannot tell the difference between Big Rock and the real thing.
