CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PermaBase Cement Board I used PermaBase for a shower stall remodel and used HardiBacker for the bathroom floor and sink back splash. The advantage of the PermaBase is that it scores more quickly and comes in smaller sheets that are not as heavy. I'm not a weight-lifter but I was able to maneuver the PermaBase sheets pretty well on my own. Working on a ladder and applying this to the shower ceiling, I was glad to able to lift a 3 x 2.5 panel fairly easily. The draw back, oddly, also involves the scoring. It scores quicker, but a little "rough" and you have to cut through the mesh that holds all the components in place which takes some getting used to. It's fairly solid material, but crumbles a bit when you're making a tight fit. It went into the studs very easily with the correct backer board screws. It took stone 4" tiles and mosiac with no problem (even on the shower ceiling). I may switch to HardiBacker on the next shower stall, only because the larger sheets could help me avoid a horizontal seam or two. But the lighter weight of the PermaBase is still appealing. Kinda on the fence as to which I like better. I'd definitely go with HardiBacker for floor or counter top applications, though. It seems tougher, more solid and I believe it's recommended for these applications. April 29, 2009
Rated 3 out of 5 by Almost as good I like Permabase because it looks nice compared to Durock or Wonderboard. I would rate it 2nd behind SelectCrete, but I can't find SelectCrete in the Midwest. That board is the easiest and cleanest to score and snap, lighter weight, and has the best edge. But since I can't get that in Ohio, I've been using Permabase and it's almost as good. August 12, 2009
