I would not use this in what seems to be an outdoor application. What you have been told is the right way to do it and will result in a finished product that will last as opposed to this scenario which will undoubtedly have to be torn out and the original suggestion done at higher cost.

Could you use this for an outdoor skateboard mini ramp?

Asked by Dadva February 7, 2021

Answers

I don't think so. Its brittle enough that it doesn't lend itself to focused pressures inherent to skateboard wheels. Also, it will NOT bend enough to accommodate any sort of curve normally associated with skate ramps

Can I use this over a damaged tile wall in the bathroom

Asked by DIYmom January 25, 2021

Answers

I would not suggest this. Depending on the damage, you need to be sure there isn’t something underneath that you are sealing in and would regret later on. You can remove the damaged tile and then use this product with a fiber seam tape and a product like Redguard to ensure lasting and safe results in a bathroom scenario.

Is this what I use to make the wall smooth when I'm putting up board and batten?

Asked by Elle January 17, 2021

Answers

Backer board is moisture resistant so it's used to support tile installations, for walls or flooring. Unlike drywall which we see everyday, backer board is never seen. Backer board is ideal for "wet areas" because it resists moisture and swelling. I used it under tile in utility room floor.

Cement Backer Board
Worked perfectly for hanging large tiles for a backsplash - it was pretty easy to cut with a razorknife - the directions on the board were helpful for cutting it correctly - not too different from cutting sheetrock. These attached well to the wall and are holding the tiles firm!

solid backer board
Highly reccomended backer board to ensure there is no flex in your tile floor and prevent cracking. It is important to follow the manufacturers specifications for installation by using the appropriate mortar, screws and alkali mesh tape for a successful install.

Used to secure tile to a tabletop. Laid down easy and provided a good surface to secure the tiles.

WonderBoard Lite Bad Quality!
Wonder board used to be a great product but not any more in my opinion. Numerous panels are missing concrete in the corners, the edge thickness is inconsistent (mostly too thick to match up with the adjacent panel) and although it says it meets ANSI standards, I believe there’s been some sacrifice of quality when going to the “Lite” formulation - the product is very brittle. As a contractor I will no longer use this product.
