Loving the solid, all-natural look
Here are some great ideas for your home and garden upgrades.
Big Rock suggests using a Hawaiian stone finish to cover any bare, interior or exterior walls, whether they are property walls, cement planters, a bathroom or a fireplace. A lot of people use it for the bottom 36 inches of the house, to give a firm stone foundation appearance.
Big Rock is made here on Oahu, so it’s readily available and is shipped to all outer islands or the mainland when needed. Moss Rock, Lava, and Coral are the oldest and most popular types of its stone veneer, but there’s also a newer line including Blue Rock and Ulupalakua, which were cast from natural Maui lava.
Big Rock has a special “recipe” to follow for a flawless installation.
The veneer comes in “flats” and “corner-pieces,” plus you can buy any amount since it is not pre-boxed. The “corner pieces” are made to wrap around a 90-degree corner of a wall or the top edge and end on a planter or fireplace hearth, for example.
Although Big Rock has always specialized in manufacturing “Hawaiian” cast stone products for walls and gardens, the company also sells a line of stone veneer called Coronado Stone for those who do not want a Hawaiian look. This must be ordered from the mainland, but shipping takes only two to three weeks.
Big Rock is an established Hawaiian company that started in 1983. It is a long-standing member of the Building Association of Hawaii, the Better Business Bureau and the National Federation of Independent Businesses. Since its inception 35 years ago, more than six million square feet of walls have been covered with Big Rock stone veneer.
You simply cannot tell the difference between Big Rock and the real thing! It’s easy and inexpensive to do, has a 50-year product warranty and the Hawaiian stone quite simply, transforms your home’s appearance.
