We find the veneer most often specified for construction on the islands
of Oahu, Maui, Moloka’i, and Kauai is our Moss Rock.
Many of the stone walls and foundations of the older Hawaiian homes were built using the natural Moss Rock.
As Big Rock’s Moss Rock Veneer is incredibly
natural in appearance, it's the obvious choice, for new construction or renovations where harmonizing the stone is important.
veneer can be color-enhanced with the use of stains, to match the hue Mother Nature has given the real stone
in the area, so whether you're adding to an existing natural wall, or starting from scratch, you can be sure that
no one will be sure if it is real, of if it’s Big Rock!.

Average thickness is +/- 2 inches, and weighs about 4 to 5 lbs. per square foot.
Installed with 3/4 inch mortar bed, the veneer will add apporximately 2.5
inches to wall.

Above: Moss Rock was installed over a cement-board
surface to create this column, located at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Waikiki.
No surface preparation was required as it was going on a cementitious
surface - only a scratch coat, the mortar and the veneer. After installation the Moss Rock was lightly highlighted with
acid stains, to enhance the color.
