Texture backer board?


Hi, I've been dealing with a problem lately that's been bugging me. I have a window ac and since the heatwave I've been running it a lot. The drywall around the windows is starting to fall apart. I have always made sure that there were no leaks and that the wall was always dry. But twice now I've had to cut away the bad drywall and replace it(using water resistant drywall). I'm at the point of just using backer board around the area. But my question is if I do that can I texture the backer board to match the drywall? I only plan on using one sheet.

Re: Texture backer board?


Cement board should texture ok although you'd need to skim coat it first. Cement board only comes in 3'x5' sheets.

Drywall mud an tape will both stick to backer board.
