Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. Durock can be used in a vertical application outside (such as a wall). We do not recommend using Durock on a deck or on the ground outside. Thanks for choosing USG.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. USG Durock must be laminated and mechanically fastened to the subfloor. You can use either latex modified thinset mortar or Type I Organic adhesive to laminate it. Then use alkalai resistant tile backer screws to mechanically fasten it every 8" in either direction. Thanks for choosing USG.

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?

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 Read More

Answer: 
Before I started my project I watched a lot of youtube video's. I am pretty sure I saw a video where a guy said that CODE requires 1/2 inch cement board in a shower. I'm sure you could get away with using 1/4 inch and it may be fine. BUT You may have a real head ache later. I go by the rule better to it right the first time and not have to worry about possible problems later.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 March 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product It's a very durable product, easy to cut and holds up. I would recommend it to anyone as well. February 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 29, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 12, 2012
