Installing Hardi board


firreal---------Be careful with such long nails!!!!

If your house was built before 1970 you may have electric conduit under the sub floor.

Check with hardi I believe they suggest 1 1/4 " roofing nails.

With hardi the firmset is a must. I prefer durock myself.-MIKE-

The cheapest unmodified thinset you can find will be fine under the Hardie, next time use Ditra, lighter, faster, easier, better product.
