I have no issue with someone commenting on an old thread, just don't address anyone in the thread after 7 years.

Who is that?

Does it matter? He's dead, Jim.

Dead Jim? Never heard of him.

No, he's dead, Jim.

May be an old thread, but still relevant as any current ones.

Yes and no...It's 8 years old. A lot has changed in 8 years so it's relevance is diminished quite a bit.

Occasionally, the screws do lift up the board, at least for me. I just back them out a bit, then screw 'em down. Impact gun gets them flush better.

Re: Better Screws For Hardibacker?


I'd this post really about how to screw backer to the wall??
Use newer format backer-on screws 1-5/8". The ones with the torx head.
Use impact driver.
Could run a bead of powergrab on the studs and set the board on that to help eliminate liftoff.
Or use roofing nails like your smart friend.

Re: Better Screws For Hardibacker?


So here is my major issue with the screws sold for Hardie backing they do not make them shorter than 1,1/4 , so here me out the product is less than 1/2 inch thick and when you attach it to a exterior wall with furring strips the screws bottom out on the block.

In order for me to install Hardie I have to drive a screw back it out, then install a screw I have cut the first couple of threads off, they should offer screws in 1,1/16 I can buy course 1,1/8 drywall screws for ext block walls.
