Does this backer needs to be mortared before screwing or nailing?

Asked by: Newwoman
depends on the installation, however I found that since the fibers on the back of the board are somewhat loose the whole thing separated from the thinset rendering the whole system pretty much useless

Is DensShield drywall better to use for shower or ToughRock drywall? Or does ToughRock drywall have a version for shower installation?

Asked by: Roger87
I've been trying to answer this question myself for a few days now. Sounds to me like it's one of those "make your own judgement call" kind of things. Some love it, some hate it. Personally, I've decided to use it. I'm also going to use a roll/paint/trowel-on membrane for seams, screws, and corners, because why bother doing all this "water proofing" if you're just going to put thinset over the joints...right?

Is this fire rated? Suitable to face a gas fireplace?

Asked by: BigAl13

Does this need to be sealed with a membrane in a shower enclosure, or is sealing up seams all that's required?

DensShield Tile backer - 1/2" x 32" x 60" is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tile backer available This is by far the most ideal product for backing tile. It's much harder than cement board, but easier to cut. It does have fiberglass on the edges and bottom, so wear gloves while handling. Use thinset to fill screw holes and fill joints. Unfortunately, Lowes doesn't carry it, so you'll have to go to Menards as of now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backer around This is the best backer board in the store and one of the best you can use. It cuts like drywall score and snap, literally the same as drywall. Gray side out when installing and its waterproof in itself. Caulk between the joints and mud the seams and your good to go. I actually used Aquaguard from Lowes and painted the joints and screws to be safe after caulking. It lighter then the hardi or cement board, all around very happy i used it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not that great Disappointing material to work with. The fibers on the back are somewhat loose so using thinset under this board (as per product installation instructions) does nothing, it wont stick since the fibers separate and you have to relay on mechanical fastening to hold together not bonded layers of materials and waste a bunch of thinset which has no purpose at all in this condition. Plus those fibers have gone everywhere, they will be still stinging days after installation, its worse than fiberglass insulation. That doesnt happen with other brands that use fibers in the mix, this one instead is disaster. I went with this product because its supposed to be lighter than others but was wasted money.
