Can this be used outside ( under tile) on a front porch?

Can this be used outside ( under tile) on a front porch?
Asked by: Marla
I would use a fiberboard or cement backer board for this purpose. Sheetrock...which this is... would not be durable enough for foot traffic.

Can this be used in bathubs and shower walls with red gaurd ?

Asked by: Miguel
I would say yes. The red guard will waterproof this moisture resistant product for bath/shower walls.

What if I put the wrong side down when it is installed, would that be a problem with the mortar and tile bondind

Asked by: Robbie
Big mistake. The waterproofing is now on the wrong side. The Tile may stick but the wall board on that side was not designed. Unfortunately it will need to removed and replaced. Use exterior screws.

Customer Reviews

Gypsum Backer Board 1/2 in. x 2.7 ft. x 5 ft. Tile Backer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend for countertops and floors Have used Durock and DensShield in the past. Durock is very heavy, hard to cut, sharp and we were not able to find it in thinner pieces. Used Durock on our first project over 10 years ago on an entry floor as we didn't know about DensShield. Had to use thicker piece and even after raising door up as far as possible and trimming still not enough clearance for a rug. Had we been able to use DensShield we wouldn't have had to trim and could fit a rug. Have used DensShield on a kitchen floor, bathroom floor and two bathroom countertops, age of projects from about 3 years ago to nearly 10 years ago, under ceramic, porcelain and travertine and no issues at all about wear, adhesion, etc. Easy to transport, cut, screw into, etc. No dust issues when cutting. Revisited options including Hardie as we prepare for another large kitchen project and have chosen to use DensShield again. Don't know if this is recommended for wet applications like shower/tub walls though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the greatest products I have ever... This is one of the greatest products I have ever used. We have used it on floors, shoer and tub walls.Cuts with a utility knife with ease Used other types but harder to cut, not water proof as this product. Has many other great uses. Once you use it you will never go back to the other. Sad that you dropped the 4x8 sheets.
