Re: Durock


Screw it, just go ahead and put it on. Make sure to run the arrows in the same direction and silicone the joints. Durabond the seems with some mesh, skip trowel some mortor on and call it a day. Seal with some good grout sealer after 2 weeks.

That should last long enough for the wall framing to start rotting before any problems show up.

Then you can call some that knows where the durock should be installed at.

Have a good day.

Re: Durock


Tile for your exterior walls? May I suggest 3x6 subway tiles? Takes longer but provides a FANTASTIC exterior finish. Please post finish pics.

I almost choked on a piece of banana bread when I read Warners response.

I can actually picture some idiot hanging Drock outside.

Re: Durock


I don't get it?Is he wanting to put sand and mortar on the durock?
Why not just put some lath on and stucco it?

Suggested in post#5.

I felt bad, so in #6 or #7, I straightened him out. He should be fine.

I hope he does not look too long for the arrows though.
