Durock cement board next generation for Bathroom Remodeling

Greetings everyone!

Has anyone considered using Durock cement board next generation for your bathroom remodeling project?

Durock cement board next generation is USG’s improved version of traditional Durock. It is the lightest cement board on the market, making it easier to lift, carry, and install. Next Gen is also easier to cut and fasten, providing 20% faster installation. The board also protects against moisture and mold.

Full disclosure: I am affiliated with USG, but this seems like a good addition to the forum. I’d love to hear any comments.

any idea as to when it would be available in florida? I do work on a regular basis for Paul Davis restoration, so it would be something of real interest

P.S. what is the cost differential?

Havanagranite- the nationwide roll out of Durock cement board Next Gen is November 30th, so you should see the product in Florida in early December.

Also, the price is the same as traditional Durock.
