I showed my inspector 5' of Green EBoard (taped and set) that had been around the entire bath tub surround. At 5' I switched to regular drywall and taped this seam as well. With 2 coats of Hydro Ban this bath tub shower surround is Good To Go!
Nice But Sorry ...... Why ..... Green Board Is For Basic Homes - pros use only gib board in bathrooms tapers union suggest gypsum boards on hang tape in all moist ares ..... GREEN BOARD....... if an owner was smart --- dont use green or whit ...... green is int any better then white .... my personal over views ... not knocking bro just given the Dwall business more insight ... lol

I either see greenboard all around or Densheild covered in that orange Shluter membrane.

...and by see I mean see through the door-way as I walk past the bathroom as I rarely pay much attention.

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


The product I used was Green EBoard not the gypsum based Green Board.

This is an eco friendly product that is much like cement board. Code approved. Stronger than cement board and does no harm to the enviroment when simply buried in the dirt.

Nice stuff. I found it installed a hair faster and with less dust. We scored our cuts outside with the angle grinder and diamond blade and noticed we cut cut say 60% through our mark and then just snap it like cutting glass. Nice not to have and plastic off the garden and lawn.

Until I use green eboard, I cannot say a negative word about it. Every stat I've read about it is impressive. I'm awaiting a distributor list to see it in person.

Now what kind of tile setter would I be if I didn't specify what I want my tile to set on.

If you're talking about the green eboard the warranty says 20 years.

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


The price is about the same or cheaper by a buck a sheet in my town compared to Hardie or Wonder.

I notice no difference in weight and like the fact that I can choose between a smooth face or rough face out. Cuts fast and light. I started trying to just score it and snap it and had good success when I scored just past half way.

I have contacted the company for a distribution list but still have not heard back from them. Here in Vancouver you can buy it at Centani Tile or Standard Lumber to my knowledge.

I like it. Harder than cement board and no harm to the planet. It is not gypsum based but some other type of material. I showed it to my local building inspector and they passed it as long as I install it as per Green EBoard's specs.

I did. And then some...

Edit-after reviewing your past posts, I am restraining myself to not impose a 30 day ban on your attitude alone.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt for now. One more smart arse comment and you are GONE!

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


Green IS better than White for what its DESIGNED for! And when I say GREEN I mean Green,Purple,Blue,Neon Whatever in COLOR and "Mold/Moisture Resistant" printed somewhere on the sheet. ALL jobs where the Tile guy had any control were done in WonderBoard/Concrete Board up to the shower head OR to the ceiling and the surrounding area,or entire bathroom,in "Green" board. I've only been hanging since '86 and the most expensive home I hung in was only 2.5 Mil so I could have alot to learn yet. I imagine there are new products that would suffice but I speak only of what I've taken part of.

John, I have to ask......What's with the lip on that tub in the picture. Am I missing something or is that tile stopping at the top of it?

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


Green drywall, as in standard gypsum with a green paper face, is totally useless. It was removed from any specs in the IRC in 2006. It was a joke when it was regularly used and using it now is simply a waste of money.

Green Eboard is a totally different product. It is similar to CBU, not drywall.

IMO, nothing with a paper face should be used in a bathroom. as I have said many, many times, using DensArmor should be a minimum. CBU is fine in wet areas but needs to be waterproofed.

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


in my 4 four year stint of working for a commercial building company, they always used dens armor( the framing contractor called it densglass) as exterior shething? then it was wrapped lathed and stuco'ed i never knew it could be used for interior applications... i guess you learn something new everyday!

we always put cement board in the wet areas except for a few builders that want densshield instead.
