hardibacker, can you nail to it?
i am installing hardibacker 4 ft around the non shower areas in the bathroom, i would like to install beadboard, CAN YOU NAIL TO BEADBOARD TO HARDIBACKER?
***just thinking i'd rather install this now,and if i want tile later i can do that nas well,in the non-shower area.
I'm adding thinset behind the hardiboard, it's old mortor, can someone let me know do i just use hardiscrews, ment for hardiboard/cement board or do i use a masonry screw/nail.
No joy---brads will not penetrate the hardi board--
Yes, what "oh'mike" says! - however -
We've done this (What fun!) -
Made sure we had adequate nailing everywhere in the wall (Everywhere!!!)
Pre-drilled all the places where trim nails would go ... including the
places where the trim on the beadboard would go through the
backer board -
Used a "Hardened" trim nail to mark the backer board -
Used a "Tapcon", drill bit to pre-drill the backer board -
Installed bead board and trim -
Results? - Excellent! :)
Time consuming? - Yes! :)
Did we make any money on it? - Not! :)
Live and learn!!
(The reason you see smiles above - got a whole lot of work from
We did this about 5 years ago, and we're still doing minor/major
remodeling projects for this person (Historic Dist. - W. side - Aurora, Ill.)
Have fun!! :)
