How To Install Tile Board

Tile board is great, and should be used whenever you’re installing tile on either wall, floors and yup you guessed it, ceilings. When tile board gets wet that’s all it gets, is wet. When sheetrock gets wet. Well, that’s a whole different story. The sheetrock will just fall apart and not ever to mention the mold.

Cutting is easy. You have a few choices here. You can score it with a scoring tool or use a special saw blade like I do in this video. But wow, talk about dust. However, it makes a much nicer cut.

Use screws to secure the tile board. They do make special screws and they’re well worth it. Yes, they cost a few bucks more. Some installers will use a construction glue as well as screws. Do I ? not really. It really depends on the framing, the span between the studs or whatever. But as long as you use good screws and lots of them you’ll be fine.

  3. Dominick,

    I noticed that you did not put up a vapor barrier between your studs and the Wonder Board. Any particular reason for that?
