Can this be used on shower walls?

Asked by: Chris
Only if there's a solid substrate being applied to.. if open framing, then use at least 1/2" thick to eliminate bows and strength

I am preparing to tile a park model floor w an existing OSB 3/4 inch floor covered with linoleum....

I am preparing to tile a park model floor w an existing OSB 3/4 inch floor covered with linoleum. I plan to remove the linoleum and lay backerboard in preparation for the tile to follow. Will 1/4 inch backerboard be sufficient or should we be using the heavier thickness backerboard???
Asked by: Felipe
It will work. But I would recommend the 1/2”. Also consider the transition between rooms. If 1/4” puts you too low, use 1/2”. If 1/2” puts you too high, use 1/4”. But either will Work as long as Your subfloor is in good shape and not bouncy.

Can i use wonderboard over hardwood flooring and install vinyl planks over the wonderboard

Asked by: Anita
Yes it's possible. But would use either bardo backer board - which is smoother. Or use a 1/4 ply underlayment, pending application preferred.

Removed old ceramic tile to refinish 30 sq. ft. bathroom floor with new, plank-style ceramic tile...

Removed old ceramic tile to refinish 30 sq. ft. bathroom floor with new, plank-style ceramic tile. Remaining subsurface is old mortar over thick concrete layer over metal mesh over plywood sub-floor. Since I don't want to remove old mortar and concrete layers, can I use Wonderboard Lite to create smooth, sturdy surface for laying new tiles? (If so, should I use thinset mortar or another product to affix Wonderboard to subsurface? And, what size trowel notch is best for this?)
Asked by: DIYDoug
Would recommend applying a sled leveling product to achieve flat smooth surface. You can do as described and use a thin set to adhere wonder board.

WonderBoard Lite 5 ft. x 3 ft. x 1/4 in. Backer Board is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 22.

Considering the amount of work and expense involved in doing tile, do yourself a favor and buy a better quality product such as Ultrabacker or HardieBacker. It is full of air voids and falls apart easily. Difficult to make clean cuts due to the crumbly nature of the product and screws tend to pull thru rather than pull the panel securely to the substrate. Thicker than other 1/4 products as well, probably due to the air voids. I had 50 sheets delivered when the supplier ran out of Ultrabacker, but returned 48 of them and sent an expediter to another store to get more Ultrabacker.

It is crumbly and of inconsistent density. It will leave crumbled, crunchy bits between the board and your subfloor. Doesn't hold screws worth a darn. Some won't seat and some pull all the way through. Some will just push right through the board before you even trigger your screw gun. I've had decent luck with the old style, but this stuff is garbage.

The seams are rolled on the edges so when you put 2 edges together there is a hump in the boards. Every where you put a screw in, there is a bump that has to be pounded down or sanded down to allow tile to sit flat. Cut edges allow the cement to fall apart.
