What is the recommended amount of screws to use for flooring applications. I am attaching the backer board to a plywood sub-floor and will put porcelain tile on top.
Asked by: mikes
Hardie Backer suggest 8" on center and on 2" from the corners. The screw should be placed about 3/4" from any other edge

Can this screw be used to attach 1/4 inch backer board to 3/4 inch subfloor?

Can this screw be used to attach 1/4 inch backer board to 3/4 inch subfloor?
Asked by: Kat
Yes. You do not want a long screw to penetrate into any floor joists. You only want the screw to penetrate the cement board and the sub floor.

Are these screws safe for treated lumber?

Just wondering if these screws are safe for installation into pressure treated lumber? The screws would go through the backer board, subfloor and into a pressure treated joist. Thanks.
Asked by: JonJ
Thank you for your question. Backer-On screws are safe to install in pressure treated wood. They can easily fasten through the cement board, subfloor, and then into a pressure treated joist. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact Customer Support at 877-489-2726 from 8:00 - 5:00 CT Monday - Friday.

What length screw should I use to attach 1/4 inch HardiBacker to a wood subfloor comprised of 3/4 inch plywood underlayment on top of 1.5 inch car decking (total wood beneath backer board equals 2.25 inches, plus more over joists).
Asked by: ToolmanTim
As long as the plywood is securely screwed to the decking, you're good to go with these 1 1/4 in. screws. The installations specs fpr HardieBacker do not call for it to be screwed through to the joists.of any floor it is installed over. If you have any questions about the attachment of the 3/4-in. plywood to the decking, drive coated deck screws (not cheaper drywall screws!) through the plywood it at regular intervals before you begin combing out the mortar bed for the Hardie. Good luck!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Points to watch for I have used these Backer-On screws for multiple floor and wall backerboard installations. My opinion of them is not terribly complimentary. An irritating point that I'd like to mention having seen again and again in reviews is that the manufacturer of these screws is often misidentified as James Hardie Building Products, the same people who make HardieBacker. This is not true. These screws are produced by Buildex, a well-known and well-respected fastener manufacturer. The same company also produced Rock-On, designed for use with Durock cement board. HD stocks these fasteners right next to cement board piles, for obvious reasons, but while the Backer-On screws were designed for use with HardieBacker, they really don't do as good a job with this unusual cement board as you might think. For starters, these screws claim to have self-drilling points. This encourages casual DIYers and contractors in a hurry to put them in without, well, drilling holes for them (with masonry bits). HardieBacker is temperamental stuff. If you drive one of these screws through it with a standard driver, a bump of cracked material usually forms on the back side of the board, pulling the HardieBacker off the floor. The coarse threads on these screws will then often cause the board to travel up the length of the screw to the cutting head, which will then overcut the board as the screw drives down. All in all, putting in these screws can be a tricky mess, and the notion that you can put them in with a standard driver and no drilling and reliably achieve a high-quality application is unrealistic. As always with all things Hardiebacker, the problems are less obvious on the 1/4" HardieBacker than on the thicker .41" Hardiebacker 500. To ensure a flatter back to your cement boards, it's best to drill 3/16" holes with a masonry bit in your Hardiebacker before putting it down or on a wall. I also follow that up with a creating a hollowed-out cup on the beginning of the drill hole with a 3/8" masonry drill bit. So why use these screws at all instead of any zinc-plated corrosion-resistant screws? I still like the big heads, and when prepared properly, a board will lay very evenly with these in it. But especially if you're planning on laying really nice tile or stone floor tile on 1/4" HardieBacker for a lasting application, or if you're using the thicker HardieBacker 500 for wet wall applications,, drill those holes, form those cups, don't rely on the screws to perform as implied in this heavy and dense fiber cement board. HardieBacker is frankly awesome stuff, butt it takes work and practice to get used to working with it and getting it to perform at its best.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from HardiBacker Screws not so good I have experienced exactly what others on the boards have; the screws separate from the board and are not always flush. I just removed some screws from a tile job done a couple of years ago in a bathroom and to my dismay the screws were already rusted on the outside badly. So back to the drawing board for Hardi, because I am not convinced that they wont rust. Best-Stainless steel

Rated 3 out of 5 by from just ok screws like others have said, these hardi screws are very difficult to drive flush. I have used 500 or so on the 1/2 hardi board and will go ahead and finish the box. However, the next box I buy will be 1+1/4 decking screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hardie Backer on screws I have used these on several jobs and have had nothing but good results. With an impact driver I have found that they do indeed pull the backer board flush with either floor joists or wall studs. In my uses the bit tends to last about 1200 screws before it breaks. The floors I have re-done (due to the "pros" using roofing nails instead of screws) no longer have that "crunching" noise when walked on.
Date published: 2014-11-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from decent screws Using an impact driver makes putting these screws in go much easier than a regular drill. Some of the heads were deformed on these and had to trash them, but all in all they were a great buy. Have only had the tile in for about 6 months now, so not sure how they will do over time but so far so good.
