Read what you want to from that gobble-dee-gook. There is NO-WAY 1/4" cement board will be substantial enough to carry a tile installation on a wall. God help you if you lean on it!

Read closer...Even the information in that link is contradictory. Those guys just want to sell product, Damn the consequences - Full speed ahead.

I would be curious to know how one can fasten the boards to studs every eight inches in both directions when the studs are spaced 16" apart? How's that going to work?

Dawg I appreciate your extensive experience in working on your own place over the years but all you seem to know about is your own home improvements and you seem to have been very lucky more than a few times. To come here and promote ridiculous and unproven techniques that others unaware may follow thinking you know something is irresponsible in my opinion.

You won't find the use of 1/4" cement board being recommended anywhere in the installation industry.

I'm not promoting it. But Hardibacker said it was ok...so I did it. But you need to understand that in my case, all my studs in that one shower are less than 16" OC...much less. The longest span between studs is about 12"....ok, maybe 12.5".

I remember when I did the hot mop and every one basically did a WTF.

It's been over a year now since I installed the hardibacker...and with luck I'll get around to actually putting up tile in the next week or so. But, if time is any indicator...everything is still very straight and flat.

But since I'm going to use RTV to attach the tiles, I figure it will have enough 'give' so that everything will be fine.
