Best way to remove cement backer board?


Screw heads are stuffed with caulking and cannot unscrew. What is the best approach to take down backer boards?

No matter what kind of caulk it is you should be able to drive a bit into the screw head. Or try to remove the caulk with a razor knife. It will save alot of time.

I'm confused by the issue. Why was caulking put on this? Are you sure it's not thinset?
As previously stated, a metal bit should be able to be inserted into phillips head screw.
Why do you need to remove the board?
