Its fragile, so it will not withstand big wind.... but if you living in not windy place, yes, I guess you can.

Can and should this be used as a backer to attach stone?
Asked by: Thomas
Cement board makes an excellent substrate for stone. Be certain that the mortar / adhesive is compatible for both the cement board backer and the stone you are attaching.

Can ceramic tile be put on this and used on the wall behind a wood burning stove?

We would use a spacer between the board and a log wall. Is this material strong enough to support tile and be mounted upright. Thanks
Asked by: KNL
The Durock can be used as a tile backer over a stud assembly.

Next Gen 1/2 in. x 3 ft. x 5 ft. Cement Board is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.

I have used them all. They all cut pretty much the same, and have the same pros and cons. One thing I see many people fail to do is install the stuff correctly. You do need to use thinset to set the sheets in place on subflooring. You do need to tape and mud all joints and fill screw holes with thinset when planning to waterproof. Cement board is not water proof and needs to waterproofed when used to enclose a shower area. If you remember these things, you should do well with your project.

Durock has proven itself in every project, commercial or residential that I've used it on. My latest use is somewhat unconventional but I have confidence it will work. I used it to expand an outdoor patio area at my residence. It was placed directly on the ground and covered with a "recycled rubber paver" system which I also acquired through Home Depot. I had experimented with the Duroc and the rubber pavers for 4 years prior to this renovation/expansion and am happy with the results and totally confident in its longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tiling surface Used this for a shower surround. I cut it with a scorer and it is very messy to cut; powder and small chunks of cement everywhere. I used a dremel to cut a hole for the shower valve. I secured it to the studs with 1-5/8" cement board screws and to furring strips (exterior wall) with 1" cement board screws. I tape the seams and coated them lightly with thinset. I applied RedGard to the whole surround. The cement board has little dimples all over its surface so its critical to use a thick roller and at least two coats of RedGard to make sure you get in every little crevice. Afterwards, I had a solid surface to tile on. I like Durock better than its main competitor because I believe its more solid and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! Purchased for the use of a foundation for a tiled-shower install. If creating a tiled shower, this is the product you need... period.
