Durock Edges on Outdoor Kitchen


I'm building an outdoor kitchen. The framing is done and I'm hanging durock backerboard to put tile over. I plan to use the tile you see sometimes on modern fireplaces without grout. My questions is do I need to do anything to the cut edges of the durock? For example I'm installing a stainless steel cabinet door, so I'm cutting a hole in one of the pieces of durock for this to go into. Does anything need to be done to that cut edge of backerboard to seal it? Same question along the top where it will meet the concrete counter I plan to add later.

Second issue, one of the outside corners will have the stainless steel door cover all the way over the framing, but not enough to cover all the backerboard and thickness of tile. How is that edge typically finished?


Thanks,
Richard

Re: Durock Edges on Outdoor Kitchen


I did buy some J channel for the corner while I was at my local big box today so the corner issues is taken care of. I haven't hung the backerboard so I don't yet have any pictures.

My concern is I know I need to tape and thinset the seams and I'm not sure if that is just to protect whatever is behind said seam, or if it also protects the cut edge of the backerboard. The first question was more durability than looks wise. If there is some exposed cut edge of durock that can't be seen but isn't sealed or waterproofed in any way will this be an issue, or is this typical?

Thanks,
Richard

Re: Durock Edges on Outdoor Kitchen


You tape durok to mitigate water transmision to whatever is underneath... not to protect its edge.

Also to a limited degree to give a solid plane for your tile to set.

Is your framing wood or metal stud and is it likely to be exposed to much rain / moisture intrusion.

I guess regardless of the circumstances, I'd tape it. Relatively no cost and maybe 1/2 hour for a barbecue pit.

Good goin..

Re: Durock Edges on Outdoor Kitchen


You may find the drywall corner j channel will fit perfectly. Not sure whether the j channel you bought was for drywall or for vinyl siding, but these seem to work great on exposed edges of 1/2" material. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Phillips-...YL-8/203116180
