hardibacker under cabinet overhang


Hello, I am installing, well at least attempting to install a ceramic tile floor in my kitchen, I am putting hardibacker over the subflooring but I have a problem, The kitchen cabinets overhang the floor about 4 inches and I don't know how to put any screws under the overhang. I thought of putting the screws in on an angle but it is hard enough to sink the screws flush. Any ideas?

or try a nail gun under the toe kick. The angle of the gun should fit under the over hang

good luck

So what's the problem? You nail or screw the board right to the edge of the toe-kick. Open the doors so you can get a bit closer. Don't forget the thin set mortar under the Hardie.

Be sure all of your Hardi panels are of a sufficient size so that you don't have to put a fastener under a toe-kick. Do as Jaz suggested. Use modified thinset and you'll be fine.

Follow the advice of Bud and Jaz. They are gods in my book!
