can this be cut and used as a frame for a raised garden?...will it hold back weight of soil?

can this be cut and used as a frame for a raised garden?...will it hold back weight of soil?
Asked by: Barry
2 x 12 would work alot better, bracing will be dependent on length the wonderboard not even a half inch thick also not meant for that kind of lateral load and even though its made for bathrooms you still have to put waterproofing over it in a bathroom shower/ tub area, would also require more bracing to minimize bowing. theres many other things you could probably use instead of the wonderboard, if you dont like the 2 x 12 idea theres always cmu blocks you can build it to any l x w x h and as long as it is built correctly will last a lifetime.

Does wonder board lite need to be water proofed with Red Guard before applying tile in a shower area?
Asked by: Tyler
I have never needed to do that. I have built more than 20 showers (baths) using wonderboard with tile over. I have usually just caulked the joint lines with a 25 yr multipurpose caulk. I have never had a leak on any shower or bath that I have built using this method and material. Keep it simple. Be sure and tar paper (waterproof) behind the wonderboard before. Be sure you have a good waterproof base (hot mop or tub). Good luck.

What is used on the subfloor before wonderboard is put down..??? w

Asked by: Sonny
Nothing. It is recommended that you use an adhesive such as pl400 before screwing the wonder board to wooden subflooring

WonderBoard Lite 5 ft. x 3 ft. x 7/16 in. Backer Board is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good So far so good. Easy to work with and cut. First time installing tile/ backer board. Installed in our basement shower and I did it all by myself didn't need help. Did leave a mess but what doesn't when your doing construction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't use it. You'll be sorry I am a "semi-professional" tile installer. Have completed over 25 jobs of varying size and difficulty. Many requiring backer boards. I just completed my first installation using Wonderboard. Previously only used Hardie backer board. Wonderboard is garbage in comparison. Must be cut with angle grinder with masonry blade due to fiber that binds the whole mess together. Crumbles when cut and makes a horrible mess. Joints between boards are not level next to each other. Screws often bore completely through the board. Don't use it!! Pay the extra dollar or two for Hardie backer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for the DIYers I recently renovated a basement bathroom. I removed an old fiberglass shower stall and move a few doors and a few walls... an almost total redesign and renovation. I have used backerboard before but not Wonderboard and not this light weight product. Let me tell you, cutting and shaping is definitely a Wonder. This stuff is very forgiving for the novice and easily manipulated by the expert (I fall somewhere in between). A good product for a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, light enough for one person to install Used this as the drywall for a bathtub/shower enclosure walls with great results. It is very easy to cut and shape using a standard utility knife and light enough for one person to hang. The blade on the utility knife was dull after cutting about 5 sheets but that is to be expected. A couple of tips I discovered while doing this job may be helpful to other users: 1. I used a cordless hammer drill on low speed to set the cement board screws. The hammer drill made the screws bite more easily into the backer board particularly around the edges where the backer board material is harder. 2. I used an oscillating saw with a Dremel 1/16" grout removal blade to cut the square hole I needed for the shower niche. Very little dust and the carbide blade made cutting the backer board with a clean, straight edge very easy. 3. For the cut outs around the shower control and faucet/shower head, I used a Rotozip tile cutting bit which had no trouble plunge cutting the backer board and giving me tidy holes that fit straight over the shower fittings first time. We stapled a plastic vapor barrier underneath the backer board for extra protection before installing the backer board and we plan to finish the job off with Red Gard to waterproof the backer board before tiling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight makes it easy to handle and install Wonderboard Lite was so easy to install. I never saw it used before and was surprised what a great product it was. So easy to score it and snap off what isn't needed to fit any spot.
