Can backer board be used to replace the brick panels inside a Regency gas fireplace?

Asked by: adon
Absolutely not!!

Is this board flexible, can we install it on the arch?

Asked by: Roger12340
Definately not.  You would have to create bending cuts on one side much like regular drywall to do so.  Flexibility is between green board and concrete board

Can the 1/4" be used for Wall Tile when screwed into a wood framing (also screwed - very sturdy/strong) or must the 1/2" HD 500 be used?

Is Hardie Board a non combustible material?  If not, could you recommend an interior wall covering that is non combustible?

Asked by: Stretch79
Yes, HardieBacker® 1/4" Cement Board is deemed noncombustible when tested to ASTM E 136 and can be used in conjunction with other noncombustible materials around a fireplace. This does not mean that clearances to combustible building materials can be reduced by using HardieBacker 1/4".

Is hardiebacker a good choice for a shower and does it have to be waterproofed with something like redgard or other membrane?

Asked by: dana89
I wouldn't hesitate to use it for a shower but I would still tape the joints and apply Redgard as a precaution because it's a wet area.

Can you use PL Premium to stick this product to metal studs?

Asked by: The Sweitz
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately using any kind of adhesive on it's own to secure Hardie Backer Board is not recommended. It must be fastened mechanically. Screws would be the recommended option.

"EZ-GRID" Cement Backerboard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 183.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from wouldn't tile without it As with all projects, having the proper tools is a must. Not sure what tools everyone is using to drive the screws in and are having issues with them sitting flush, but I have zero problems. I use my Makita impact driver and it counter sinks the screws slightly for a snug fit. The mortar used in between the subfloor and the backerboard is really only used to fill the voids. This product will not level your floor. If you are worried about that, level the floor first. Make sure you seam the gaps with the backer board tape before tiling. There is a good instruction sheet on the hardieboard website on how to install this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product!! I did some research first for cement boards. This one is PERFECT. It cuts without making a mess and is of high quality. I had the floors removed down to the subfloor. The guys screwed down really well the plywood with proper screws (I've bought a 5 lb box). Applied a QUALITY brand thin-set over the subfloor + leveled. Installed these cement boards. Screwed them down with proper screws (BACKER-ON 1 5/8" - qty 575/bucket). No more squeaking/movement. Applied a layer of thin-set over it and set the marble tiles. My DR, Kitchen and 1/2 have now a sturdy floor as none of the previous owners got to enjoy (for being cheap and cutting corners).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Subsurface for Tile I have used this product in four bathrooms for walls and floors. It is very tough stuff and you need to be prepared for the task of fastening it down. Once down it is an excellent subsurface for tile. I have had zero problems with my tile that has been laid down on top of it. Do use the screws that are designed for use with the backer board. They will countersink themselves if you do it right. I have used a jig saw with a tile cutting blade to cut straight lines as well as curves. Not a problem, just be sure to wear a breathing apparatus to keep the dust out of your lungs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I had thought about just putting tile down on the subfloor but I am glad I did not. This product made the floor seem more solid and stable. With the gridlines, it made it easy to measure and score. Had little to no problems screwing it down, if you put the screws where they were designed to go. You basically have to be on top of the screw to have it flush. Even at a slight angle, it will not be flush. But that could be a product of the screw and not the board. Did have an issue for cutting around registers and corners but did not have the proper tools I assume. Wear a mask if you are uncomfortable with any dust that might arise. Overall, I was very satisfied with this product and will use it again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyone from DIY to Professional This is a great product for tile. With proper attention paid to the sub floor this will create a very solid floor. Some people have issues with cutting and screwing so hopefully this will help. Cutting- make sure you always keep a sharp edge on your knife and use a straight edge for accuracy. If you decide to use a saw wear a mask. This cuts a lot easier than other cement board on the market. Screwing- Use an impact driver, most screw heads get stripped because the screw was not level. Plus with a strong sub floor and a cement board it takes some good torque to get the screws to countersink. Using an impact driver takes all the effort and frustration away. I hope this helps for anyone looking to take on a tiling job themselves and remember, do your homework and prepare it will avoid many unnecessary headaches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, strong I've read several reviews saying this was hard to cut and it crumbled..But I did not have any problems with it. It was easily scored with a razor blade and cut just like sheet rock. Didn't have any problems at all with this stuff and it was easy to install. Thin set and hardie backer screws and this made my floor solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond easy to use The last time I used this I did use a circular saw with a masonry blade. Cut through it just fine, but made a cloud of dust. This time I used the score and snap method after buying heavy duty utility knife blades. You do have to do a heavy score about 10 - 15 times to get it where it will fold, but it was worth it not having to deal with the dust. It was leaving a little bit of a edge on the cut side that was easily cleaned up by running the blade across it. I used Phillips cement board screws that I had left over from a previous job with a new drive bit in my old 19.2 v craftsman drill/driver on the high torque setting (low speed, more power). Every screw went in and countersunk just fine even when I couldn't put them in the designated spots. Cleanup was a breeze. I didn't even have a coating in the dustpan after doing about a dozen cuts. If you're going to use this board I recommend buying the heavy duty utility knife blades and use a decent driver to put the screws in with. I was also able to use a spade bit to cut holes in it for shower head pipe to come through and used a set of tile nippers to create the square opening for the shower controls. This is good stuff and if you follow the directions and think about what you're doing you should have no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use Easy to use, Highly recommend that you use James Hardie's screws to fasten down, a little more money than dry wall screws but will save you a lot of time and headache.
