  • View 1

    • Backerboard:

      Backerboard is used to provide a dimensionally stable and/or a moisture & mold resistant substrate for various tile installations.

    • Why HardieBacker:

      HardieBacker is the original fiber cement backer board.
      It is made of cement. Cement is incredibly strong and a perfect substrate material to combat damage from moisture and mold.
      - strongest cement board
      - easy to work with because it cuts cleanly and easily
      - one of the lightest cement boards

    • Superior Durability:

      Made of cement. By the original fiber cement manufacturer.

      It is the lightest cement board on the market making it easy to work with. Look for HardieBacker in the building materials aisle in the store.

    • Greater Flexural Strength:

      Flexural strength is defined as a material's ability to resist deformation under load.

      HardieBacker cement board is going to help your walls and floors stay strong over time, making the investment worthwhile.

    • Compressive Strength:

      More than twice that of competitor cement boards and more than 10 times greater than glass mat gypsum board.

    • Free of Harmful Substances:

      Contains no asbestos, gypsum, fiberglass, formaldehyde or fly ash.

    • Free of Abrasive Aggregate:

      Unlike glass mesh cement boards, HardieBacker contains no abrasive aggregate that can scratch porcelain and enamel surfaces.

    • Moisture Resistant:

      Provides superior resistance against water damage and is industry recognized for use in wet areas including tub and shower surrounds.

    • Mold Resistant:

      Exclusive MOLDBLOCK™ Technology helps safeguard against mold growth. HardieBacker 500 and ¼” pass both industry mold tests- ASTM G21 and ASTM D3273- with a perfect score.

    • Multiple Applications:

       HardieBacker can be used in bathrooms, basements, kitchens and any other room that comes in contact with water.
      - Can be applied over wood and vinyl
      - Can be used behind walls, in showers and under floors and counter tops

    Secure boards to studs using approved fasteners.

  • Step 4

    Minimum of 1 ½ ” long corrosive resistant roofing nails.
    Minimum of 1 ½ ” long No. 8x.0375”HD self-drilling corrosion-resistant ribbed wafer-head screws.
    Minimum of 1” penetration into studs.

  • Step 5

    1/8 “ gap between boards.

  • Step 6

    Fill all joints with mortar.

  • Step 7

    Embed 2” wide high-strength alkali-resistant glass fiber mesh in the mortar and level.

  • Step 8
