Can I use this on sides of my bar its covered with osb board wanna add this as a protection ?

Asked by: Nettie
Why not just cover the OSB with plywood? It would be cheaper and easier. Of course, cement board could be used if that's you desire.

What type of glue do you use when applying cement board over wood subfloor?

Asked by: Doug
Use a type 1 organic adhesive. While the adhesive is still wet. fasten every 8" around the perimeter and in the field of the panel with either 1 1/2" hot dipped galvanized roofing nails or 1 1/2" or 1 1/4" Durock tile backer screws.

1/4 cement board over 1/2 sheetrock in tub area

I saw your answer for using 1/4 inch for tub areas but how about if this product is applied directly over 1/2 sheet rock and then tiled over it. Will it then be strong enough not to flex?
Asked by: Hogs
This would give you a very strong, stable surface for tiling. Couple of suggestions though. Even though you would be putting the cement board over the sheetrock, I would recommend that you use the moisture/mold resistant sheetrock, also known as green board just for added protection. Also, be sure that the cement board is screwed THROUGH the green board and into the framing. The combined weight of the cement board and tile requires a mechanical connection to the wall framing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Score it, snap it and install it. Easy as pie. Always works for me and I do this for a living. Better then pouring the cement yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from way better than hardybacker side by side shoot out: easer to cut, easer to attach with screws, with a rougher surface for the tile actually stick greater bond, lighter & cheaper

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite of the backer boards I've used Hardy board and I found that it didn't score very easily. I had to use a circular saw with a carbide blade. It was very messy and a pain in the rear. After that job, I switched over to Durock and I'll never look back. Very easy to score and snap. It almost cuts as easy as gypsum board. It doesn't have alignment lines but I've decided those are fairly worthless anyway, seeing that once you get thinset on the board, you can't see the lines in the immediate area that you are working on anyway. Just run a laser line across your floor and get after it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product easy to use Read multiple reviews and wasn't sure which brand to buy. This product received the best reviews and lived up to them. It's easy to score and cut and would definitely buy again for my next project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as it was intended. First time I used this product. First time I've tiled a floor. Scribed it, broke it, installed it and tiled over it. It worked.. What more can I say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product It's a very durable product, easy to cut and holds up. I would recommend it to anyone as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheap but not worth a penny more I was told by everyone that durock is the best product. It did the job but it was messy, not an easy cut, and the corners break so easily. I will not be buying this product ever again. It is cheap but you get what you pay for, this says it all.
