Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA 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.

board was easy to work with and cut but I felt like it crumbled a little too easy

It's lighter weight, I've been laying tile for 20 years and it's never failed me

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.

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.

Purchased for the use of a foundation for a tiled-shower install. If creating a tiled shower, this is the product you need... period.

I find this is more water resistant than the others brands, this isn't thirsty like Hardie bord or hardiebacker.
