is it truly 1/2"? If I were to line up 1/2" sheetrock next to it would they be the same thickness? I want to build a room in my garage and have the lower part of the wall near the floor be cement board then tie into sheetrock above that. I sometimes get snow melt in the garage.

Can this be screwed directly over existing drywall or do i need to pull the drywall and clean up studs prior to fixing directly onto the wood ? Additionally is it recommended to insulate behind with glass wool or similar. ???
Asked by: Gordo
Gordo Thank you for your question. If you are using the Durock Cement board in a shower or tub enclosure we recommend removing any drywall first. Check your local code requirements regarding insulation. Hope this helps.
