Questions & Answers

I am installing a back splash in a bathroom along a vanity, the drywall is currently painted but the wall is very nice, no dings, scratches, etc. Do I need to use backer board or would sanding the paint to rough it up be enough for the thinset to bond to? I will be using a glass/marble mosaic tile that is 8mm thick.
Asked by: Sandra
You do not have to install cement board if the drywall is decent and currently intact. I would suggest using Omnigrip 3 adhesive rather than regular thinset. It is more expensive but the tile will adhere much better for you. Best of luck!

if used above shower stall could you just paint it and it be alright

Asked by: gabee
You can, is the short answer. However, to make it look good you still must tape the seams and corners, and add texture to hide the fiber in the product.

Can this be used on shower walls?

Asked by: Chris
Yes, just make sure you waterproof it with a product like Redgard or something similar.

Is the strong odor normal? Bought 3 WonderBoard Lite from local store and stored them in the garage. After one night, the garage is full of odor smell. I am wondering if the smell will persist after the board covered by the tile. Is that normal, or it's the qualify control problem?
Asked by: jiosec
Yes it is normal, but once the mortar, tile and grout go down, you won't notice the smell.

WonderBoard Lite 5 ft. x 3 ft. x 1/4 in. Backer Board is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for curved surfaces I recommend this for curved surfaces, or when you need thin strips for window sill or shower alcove. For flat surfaces, I prefer the hardi backer, it will give better strength. First thing I learned, is this is extremely easy to score and snap. You can accurately cut this into 2" strips. If you try to do this with hardi backer, it will not snap along the line. The second thing I learned, is that the 1/4" wonder board is very flexible and bends into a smooth curve. It will make cracking noises, but it maintains its strength. I had a difficult tile job, I framed the shower ceiling as a groin vault. This is like a barrel vault, but in two directions. I typically use hardi backer, but it is not flexible. I thought my only alternative was a Kerdi or Wedi board that costs about $200 per sheet. Luckily I went to Home Depot and tested out the flexibility of the wonder board and was quite surprised. It will bend just as well as the alternatives and is much less expensive.
