durock on studs, durock screws


Does cement board go right on the wood studs in a bathroom? Or does it require some sort of backing/underlayment? Is there any sort of vapor barrier used for the walls/floor?


Everyone says to use special durock scews, I've never seen them (never really looked hard)... Can I get them anywhere?

Cement board over a 6 mil vapor barrier directly into the studs. The screws are in the same aisle(HD) as the sheetrock, durock, corner bead, etc... You can also use roofing nails.

They are often in the Tile materials/tools area of the BIG HOME stores.
Also try tile suppliers.
