Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skirting I read all the reviews at this site before I bought this product so I knew what to expect. Some crumbling around the edges, needs to be cut with a masonry saw blade for a clean edge. Will need to use some fill where slightly beveled edges come together. Sheets were square and of a better quality than the previous design - the next generation material. I took this into account in reading the reviews. Only complaint is in the store and the on-line ordering, I picked this order up the same day I ordered it but it is still listed on my account as "ready for pick up". For use as skirting we used a 12" center for better support, and will cover it most of the way to the concrete pad with the concrete siding that is on the double wide. June 24, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Durock Rocks! Customer Service is typically friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The floor associates at the Merritt Island Home Depot have become my DIY "go-to" experts! We used Durock in my renovated bathroom when we pulled out the old rusted tub and installed a gleaming new shower stall. April 8, 2014
