Company: Hard as Rocks
Hard as Rocks are the exclusive New Zealand agents for the world’s best-selling man-made stone veneer – Eldorado Stone. Whether it is a golf course, hotel or winery, lodge or residential project or even the entrance pillars or fireplace at your home, Hard as Rocks can offer a truly authentic stone look to suit individual tastes.
Eldorado Stone is the only man-made stone in NZ to have a BRANZ Appraisal. BRANZ thoroughly tested the Hard as Rocks application to prove it to be both durable and watertight, but also tested it using the earthquake racking test to prove the system will stand up to seismic events.
Because Eldorado stone is lighter than real stone it does not require a concrete footing or expensive steel lintels so it can be installed up to 8m high in most applications over standard timber framing. It can also be installed over some existing claddings or easily applied as part of a renovation inside and outside to give your home the ‘wow’ factor.
The finished product looks and feels just like the real thing for about half the price. Choosing Eldorado Stone gives you a wide selection of both New Zealand and overseas stone profiles such as Lava rock, Hillstone, Country Rubble, Riverstone or Schist.
Hard as Rocks is installed nationwide by our own Licensed Hard as Rocks Franchisees and applicators visit the web-site www.hardasrocks.co.nz to see our extensive range of stone profiles and photos of completed work as well as to download all the technical information you will need for your architect, designer or council building consent.
