How is wonder board lite cut? Is a grinder necessary, or is it score and snap?

How is wonder board lite cut? Is a grinder necessary, or is it score and snap?
Asked by: sam
You can cut it with the score and snap method . Also umyou can use a skill saw and a regular blade, just remember it will probably need a new blade before you go back to wood. For a cleaner cut if you have issues try lightly scoring both sides . Keep the razor sharp. Wondervoard will drop little cement nuggets , make sure you don’t lay on top of those if going on the floor. hardibacker will also snap and cut. 1/2” is hard to snap though!

Can Wonderboard be used as a filler for a pre-cast concrete countertop mold that will be 1 1/2" thick? After concrete cast in mold, (about one inch thick) a final layer would be applying the 7/16 thick Wonderboard - gently pressed into/onto the poured concrete to equal the height of 1-1/2" thick countertop slab - with 2 by 4's attached with screws on the melamine mold sides to keep the board in place until concrete is set?
Asked by: Shasay
I don't see any reason why it could not be used as a filler, but I would not use it as a top. Every video I have seen, uses a board or a leveler. Also you would need to get the bubbles or air pockets out of concrete before it set I assume you don't want a smooth finish on the top if you want to use wonderboard

can this be cut and used as a frame for a raised garden?...will it hold back weight of soil?

can this be cut and used as a frame for a raised garden?...will it hold back weight of soil?
Asked by: Barry
2 x 12 would work alot better, bracing will be dependent on length the wonderboard not even a half inch thick also not meant for that kind of lateral load and even though its made for bathrooms you still have to put waterproofing over it in a bathroom shower/ tub area, would also require more bracing to minimize bowing. theres many other things you could probably use instead of the wonderboard, if you dont like the 2 x 12 idea theres always cmu blocks you can build it to any l x w x h and as long as it is built correctly will last a lifetime.

I am using a tile that looks like rock and putting it around the skirting of my deck. Would this product hold up for that or should I use exterior grade plywood?
Asked by: Mike
Hi Mike, Our tile guy used this over the wood subfloor in our entry and really screwed it down (mud the screws) so that it would remain stable under onyx. I don't know why it couldn't be used, but keep in mind how much wood swells and shrinks. I'd recommend gluing and screwing everywhere. Our tile guy sank a screw about every 6-8 inches. Good luck! Hope it works out. Murleen

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't use it. You'll be sorry I am a "semi-professional" tile installer. Have completed over 25 jobs of varying size and difficulty. Many requiring backer boards. I just completed my first installation using Wonderboard. Previously only used Hardie backer board. Wonderboard is garbage in comparison. Must be cut with angle grinder with masonry blade due to fiber that binds the whole mess together. Crumbles when cut and makes a horrible mess. Joints between boards are not level next to each other. Screws often bore completely through the board. Don't use it!! Pay the extra dollar or two for Hardie backer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for the DIYers I recently renovated a basement bathroom. I removed an old fiberglass shower stall and move a few doors and a few walls... an almost total redesign and renovation. I have used backerboard before but not Wonderboard and not this light weight product. Let me tell you, cutting and shaping is definitely a Wonder. This stuff is very forgiving for the novice and easily manipulated by the expert (I fall somewhere in between). A good product for a good price.
