Can this product be painted and finished like regular drywall? For example, in a tub surround, can I use this product for the entire surround (up to the ceiling), while tiling up to the shower head and painting the remainder above the tile?
Asked by: ray
In non-tile areas as you describe, apply a 2" wide fiberglass mesh tape to any joints and skim the surface with a setting type compound to achieve a smooth and paintable finish. Consult the paint department for their recommended paint finish in this type of area.

Can I order this at my local Home Depot?

Asked by: Delmount
Hi Delmont, it looks like that this backer board is a store exclusive item and only able to be bought in a Home Depot store. Unfortunately we do not sell it with online stock for purchase. If you are unable to see the store inventory or price it is most likely either not a stocked item in your area or no longer available for purchase from Homedepot.com. I would advise you visit or contact your local Home Depot store for pricing and availability. Please follow the steps below to localize your Homedepot.com: 1.
