fastening wire mesh to hardibacker


Are 1" crown staples driven pneumatically OK for attaching chicken wire to hardibacker? We have decided to float the backsplash because the framing is so wavy. My tile guy says he can't staple to hardibacker with his regular T50 staple gun.

Yow-well he's right about that!!!
A T-50 isn't a staple "gun" to begin with. And it wouldn't be anywhere near capable of using the correct staples.

Not sure what that* was supposed to have been but a 7/16" crown X 1-1/2" leg would be the staple to use, assuming the Hardi isn't over drywall. The thing is...the Hardi probably won't hold the staple anyway unless you were hitting a stud with every shot. That's what I would strive for.

I'm not sure how that's going to to work if the mesh is going to cause the mud to stand proud of the adjacent wall. Guess I don't know enough about what you are trying to do.

straighten the wall first with some hot mud then screw the backer on and tile. actually if you straighten the wall with compound you wont need the hardibacker, it is ok to stick the backsplash tile to the drywall isnt it tile pros?

Yup! That's what I would do.
Use Durabond 90 and a straightedge.
No Hardi, no wire, no mud, no staples, no problem.
