This is meant for tile on walls. You would remove drywall use this instead of drywall, add RedGuard to protect from moisture and then install tile on it.

can hardie backer board be used outside on exterior wall.
Asked by: jaz
I've used it on a dog house and a small shed. I then used Redgusrd on the outside and siding. It's been about 2 yrs now under snow, sun, rain, hail, heat, freezing temps and is standing up great. The structures are somewhat insulated form temps as well. Worked for me.

I have used this product to make outdoor chalkboards and concrete countertops. The chalkboards have held up to the elements so far. The boards have also held up to the weight of concrete on them for our counters. I was able to cut them with a saw pretty easily but not by scoring and snapping as suggested. I will continue to use this product in projects around my house, especially those in wet areas.
