Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


I won't use anything but cement board. Used to be nothing but Permbase, but now Durock finally woke up and they make their product easy to cut now. I'll buy either one.

If the tile guy wants anything else I tell the owner/builder to let them install it themselves.

It's densglass here and I have only used it exterior as a sub for efis....

Then I'll gladly install my own. If I'm waterproofing the wet location, I don't need overkill when my sheet membrane will not allow moisture or even vapor to penetrate it.

Have fun installing what you don't need to

Re: Correct Board Type In Shower


Angus, I think your system sounds like the best,however it is not widely used here. I will tell you i'm going to look into it.

Material for a standard tub(8'ceiling) with cement board is around maybe 80 bucks and to hang it is around 15 to 25 bucks(whole house getting hung). Lets say $150 to get to tile. Bath only remodel would be more of course.

Whats the ballpark to get to tile with your system? Just curious.

Hard to say. DensArmor is about 3x more expensive then standard gypsum board. Yet, it's not finished any different.

Regardless of wallboard, it gets waterproofed. The time savings by only having to use 1 kind of material for the walls helps offset the additional cost of the material itself. Only need to visit 1 supply house to get wallboard. No extra framing needed for seams as you would with multiple materials

So if everything more or less equals out between material & labor, you have to realize that the way I build a bathroom is an upgrade and should be charged accordingly...and it's waterproof!
