Worked great for my bathroom remodel.
I was planning on using hardybacker on my project, but my local store did not have enough in stocks. I read the reviews for this product in the store, and was honestly worried based on some of the negative feedback. I don't know if those reviewers got boards from a bad batch, that were mishandled, or didn't read the instructions on how to use this product. I however, had great success with this product. I used a square and a good box knife with a fisher blade to score the sheets about 5 times, put them on the edge of the floor and snapped to a 90 degree angle, then cut the other side. I used an old chisel and a hammer to make the round hole for my toilet, and rectangular hole for my vent. Used the cement board tape and thin set to fill in the gaps after installation. I HIGHLY recommend using the Backer-On fasteners. They went right through and held snug. I just finished putting up the last piece of 7/16" wonderboard on the shower walls, and that worked good as well. If you can't use hardybacker, give wonderboard a try, it's a good product.

    It's a nice solid backer board at just 1/4" thick when mortared and screwed down

    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.

        Great product. Goes down easy. Edges need to be a little more sturdy but it made floor base level...
        Great product. Goes down easy. Edges need to be a little more sturdy but it made floor base level for our vinyl wood floors.
