HARDIBACKER INSTALLATION PDF

It is mold resistant and approved for wet areas. If fact most building codes are now requiring some kind of backerboard in bathrooms, kitchens are not too far behind. One thing to keep in mind is that Hardibacker is not a structural element. If your floor flexes due to undersized joists, it will not help you until you strengthen the underlying structural issues. These types of boards only provide a way to bridge the gap between plywood and the tile, as plywood is not the best underlayment for tile. Please read the installation instructions as I am human and may forget some things.

It is mold resistant and approved for wet areas. If fact most building codes are now requiring some kind of backerboard in bathrooms, kitchens are not too far behind. One thing to keep in mind is that Hardibacker is not a structural element.

If your floor flexes due to undersized joists, it will not help you until you strengthen the underlying structural issues.

These types of boards only provide a way to bridge the gap between plywood and the tile, as plywood is not the best underlayment for tile.

Please read the installation instructions as I am human and may forget some things. Consider this an overview and not a guide. First of all hardibacker is not hard to cut. To cut this board you simply score a line with a straight edge and snap it. To cut more difficult shapes you can use any power saw. Please keep in mind that power saws make a lot of dust and proper respiratory care must be taken, such as a wearing the proper mask and cutting outdoors.

In fact you may want to invest in a good carbide scoring tool designed just for backerboards. I have gone directly over studs, as well as over sound wall coverings, be sure to follow the manufactures instructions as some require direct to stud application.

Just be sure you use the proper screws, and screw directly into the studs. Countertops must use shorter screws. Make sure you use approved screws, these screws need a special coating to resist rust. These are both sold in the same aisle as the backerboard. That is pretty much the skinny on hardibacker board for he walls. Floor and Countertop Installation: The floor and countertop are both the same when it comes to installation. When installing the backerboard on the floor and countertop there is an extra crucial step.

That step is to set the backerboard on thinset. The boards must be set and screwed into the thinset to eliminate any possibility of the backerboard moving and flexing under the weight of a person. Even if there is a minute amount of movement it will not be good for your tile floor, it will pop and the tiles will come up. This ensures the floor is one unit and will move as one. Installing hardibacker is not difficult at all, if you follow the installation guidelines outlined by the manufacturer.

Just take your time and everything will turn out good and the next step will be tile.

HardieBacker Boards Characteristics HardieBacker cement boards present a perfect substitution for traditional plywood and plasterboard substrates, due to the increased dimensional stability, strength and overall improved moisture and mould resistance. They include a patented Mouldblock Technology which only expands their application to even the wettest areas such as kitchens and bathrooms which is not the case with the available alternatives. Namely, while traditional tiles and internal finishes substrates cannot fight the mould growth or moisture expansion , thus causing cracking of the tiles, timber wrapping and only increasing maintenance costs, these boards are gypsum free, meaning that they will not disintegrate when exposed to high levels of moisture. The boards are available in two sizes, 6mm and 12mm , and differ in application and installation process.
