Durock in the bathroom,

I was told you should leave a 1/4" gap between sheets, is this true

Not in my experience--butt them tight . Where did you hear that?

Durock in the bathroom,

No gap needed when butting sheets or pieces together (to eachother).

A 1/4" gap is suggested between floor perimeters and walls.

Refer to Durock Installation Instructions (Specifically See the information and Diagram on Page 4) here:
