Questions & Answers

Can i screw 1/4 hardie onto 3/4 plywood subfloor ? (No mortar)

Asked by: Carpitonto
No! Read the installation Guide. Thinset Mortar is absolutely needed to prevent unwanted movement between the subfloor and Cement Board. This helps prevent the tile and grout from cracking prematurely.

Under "Underlayment Instructions", they say "Lightly butt the board joints. Do not leave a gap". We're putting down 3 layers of this over 3/4" OSB, followed by 1/2" engineered wood flooring. We're using the Backer screws to secure it to the subfloor. Can someone confirm that we in fact do not need the gap between the joints, in any of the layers? Thank you
Asked by: JRHolt888
RyanSEA, this sounds like an interesting off-label use for cement backerboard. They say HardieBacker is dimensionally stable, so I would follow the other advice here and lightly butt them; touching, but not pressed together. Have you heard of other builders using backerboard as soundproofing, or is this an idea of your own that you are trying out? I'd be interested to know what the results are.

So studs are 16" on center, and this board only comes in 3x5 - so we're supposed to waste the overlap???? WHY I THIS NOT IN MULTIPLES OF 16"???? Apparently they can get 32" x 60" Hardiebacker in Canada (at Home Depot) but not in the states. And yes, I know this is the 1/4". I'm putting it up over 3/4" plaster (60 year old wallboard that was plastered over because 60 years ago the paper coating on wallboard was Not Suitable for Painting, and it shortened the plastering time by a LOT). Why am I doing that? Because I don't want to tear off all that plaster. The studs are on 16" centers. I will have to cut EVERY SINGLE SHEET, and the stuff is already a pain to cut, plus the waste. Am I REALLY supposed to cut every single sheet to install on a wall?
Asked by: Pye
You are thinking it needs to be screwed into the floor joints. That's NOT the case. If you already screwed 3/4" plywood onto the joists, then you can screw Backerboard into the plywood with a screw of each dimple. About 50 per sheet. Do them all. Read the instructions here: https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/df/dfb67def-3f68-48c4-b88b-3da5d35dbb75.pdf

I'm installing backsplash in the kitchen with HardieBacker as the base. Can I adhere wallpaper to the Hardiebacker? Can I adhere a contact type paper to it?
Asked by: Pammi
Wallpaper will show every blemish in the HardieBacker. You will need a thin layer of Thinset or other filler such as spackling. Check your coating material for wallpaper adherence.
