Question:

Cement Board and Green Board?

We are remodeling our Bath and have put cement board around the shower which we will tile. My question is, do I continue to use cement board around the remainder of the bath or put up green board. The cement board in only 1/4 inch. Can I get greenboard that is 1/4 in. thick? I don't want a ridge between were the two meet. The tile will run half way up the wall and the other half painted in the remaining part of the bath.

Answer:

THEY MAKE HARDI-BACKER BOARD OR CEMENT BOARD IN 1/2 . THIS IS WHAT U SHOULD HAVE USED, THEN IF U WANTED U COULD HAVE USED GREEN BOARD IN THE REST OF THE BATHROOM, THAT WAY EVERY THING IS EVEN AND YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS TILING

if the cement board is 1/4 inch think then add 1/4 inch backer board under the cement board to bring out the finished wall to 1/2 inch....all wall should be 1/2 or better.... walls that have 1/4 drywall are not stronge enough and will sag...

If you are installing ceramic tile then you definitely need to use cement board in the shower/tub area. Green board with ceramic tile would be okay for other parts of the bathroom walls, but not in the shower/tub. Green board is water resistant, but it is not really waterproof and should not be used in a shower. Cement board is not affected at all by water so it is great to use in shower.
