        A:  The product itself only comes in white. However, as a water-based paint, it should be easy to add color. I suggest you select a suitable shade and then check with the people in the paint department.

                Q:You indicated that backer boards may not need waterproofing. Hardie board indicates the board is moisture resistant, but not waterproof. If moisture penetrates tile, grout and thin-set bed, it reaches the board. Do you disagree with the Hardie board?

                  A:  Hi my, thanks for your question. Our Dry Plus Masonry Waterproofer can be used on joints and screw heads.

                      A:  You may not need to use any product. polystyrene Tile Backer Boards are perfect for wet rooms as they create a waterproof barrier behind the tiles. The cement boards are made from rigid extruded polystyrene with a bonded cementitious coating to both sides so you don't ever have to worry about rotting, deformation or weakening

                        A:  This comes from the description of the paint: It is designed for porous masonry surfaces and withstands up to 12 psi of hydrostatic pressure and 98 mph wind-driven rain. If you use, you must use two coats. Durability – Hardieboard unique blend of concrete and other composite materials makes it impervious to elements like rain, high winds, and humidity. It also is highly resistant to hail and flying debris. My son's house is all Hardieboard and the painters used a regular outdoor paint. For me, I would not use this Behr paint. I used it for my basement and I believe that is the best place to use it. I would use one of Behr's best rated outdoor paints for Hardieboard. .
