Installed a new Styrene tub, getting ready to tile above. Durock, or hardibacker?
Going to use roofing felt vapor barrier, then CBU,then tile. With all the different types of backerboards out there, I'm wondering which I should use. Wonderboard, Durock, hardibacker? If it makes a difference, the backer board will mate up with drywall where the common wall goes from wet area to non wet area. I'd rather keep the cost as low as I can while still doing the job right.
Thanks guys... I hadn't mentioned waterproofing because I had read not to do it if I was going with a vapor barrier, as you suggest I shouldn't... but I also had read that the barrier was better than waterproofing, I'm glad to see you suggest hardi and guard, that was kinda the way I wanted to do it.
