Score and snap is fastest. I use a Dremel with carbide bit for holes.

is the 7/16 thickness better for tile flooring than the 1/4 thickness?

Asked by: newbs
depends on the use if your doing walls the 7/16 will match the width of the drywall better so you have a smooth transition on floors its a matter of thickness 1 1/2 inches is the recommended floor thickness for tile it has less deflection so tile wont break

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, light enough for one person to install Used this as the drywall for a bathtub/shower enclosure walls with great results. It is very easy to cut and shape using a standard utility knife and light enough for one person to hang. The blade on the utility knife was dull after cutting about 5 sheets but that is to be expected. A couple of tips I discovered while doing this job may be helpful to other users: 1. I used a cordless hammer drill on low speed to set the cement board screws. The hammer drill made the screws bite more easily into the backer board particularly around the edges where the backer board material is harder. 2. I used an oscillating saw with a Dremel 1/16" grout removal blade to cut the square hole I needed for the shower niche. Very little dust and the carbide blade made cutting the backer board with a clean, straight edge very easy. 3. For the cut outs around the shower control and faucet/shower head, I used a Rotozip tile cutting bit which had no trouble plunge cutting the backer board and giving me tidy holes that fit straight over the shower fittings first time. We stapled a plastic vapor barrier underneath the backer board for extra protection before installing the backer board and we plan to finish the job off with Red Gard to waterproof the backer board before tiling.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight makes it easy to handle and install Wonderboard Lite was so easy to install. I never saw it used before and was surprised what a great product it was. So easy to score it and snap off what isn't needed to fit any spot.

It is smooth on both sides and apparently relies on chemicals, acrylics, something that has a very strong odor for bonding to mortar. I have been using Durock for years, it has a rough side which provides a mechanical bond for mortar and a smooth side for mastic. No chemical smell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lite board is not better The lighter board is easier to handle only because of the weight. It works, but as you lift it and move it around it bends, flexes, and you can hear the concrete crunching into pieces inside the mesh. When you put screws through it, the board is less solid and the screw has less to grab, very unforgiving of too much screw torque, more likely to punch a hole with the screw head. This board flexes after you get it up on the stud wall. More importantly, you are probably matching 5/8 inch sheetrock at the borders, so thinner 7/16 inch wonder board does not match, creating an elevation difference. I will never use the lite stuff again, strongly recommend to use the heavier original wonder board.

I can easily carry/lift one around and into place. I score them with a utility knife and get pretty good cuts. Compared to Durock, these boards are not as messy as the cement is not that "powdery" when scored. The longest spacing between studs I had was 19" (due to plumbing) and it was still a solid surface. I taped and bedded the joints with a modified thinset. I applied RegGard over them before tile. The only thing I do not like about these boards is the tape they put across them; it has the barcode and some information on it but is a pain to remove. If you can remove it, just turn the board around, you can tile either side.

The only complaint I have is when the screws push through the top meshfiber layer there's nothing stopping it from going right on through. Getting the screws flush can be difficult.

It was sized correctly and light enough for one person to carry at a time. It was secured to the studs and stayed together as it was designed to. The tile held firmly to the board while providing the necessary strength for the shower walls. It is definitely water proof and I fully expect the installation to last as long as this house stands. I was even able to cut small pieces to fill in holes where moisture had permeated the sheet rock. Thanks for an excellent product at a price that is affordable.

"Lite" is a relative term but it does give you a firm backing for the tile. It goes on like drywall but use the alkalai resistant seam tape.

If you're putting tile somewhere , without a decoupler, put this as your backer board. Thinset and tile just hold better than to any other substrate like drywall (BAD idea) or plywood.
