Hardie Backer Board

We have removed a tub and have started a shower--very small. We measured and everything is level accordingly; however, mid-wall-between two hardie boards is a space about 1/4 ". If we redo the hardie board align the space, then we have a space somewhere else. We have the fibre tape and water proofing stuff to put up. What can we do for the space before finishing? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Hardie Backer Board

You can fill it with thin set, put the fiber tape and cover it with more thin set. Flatten with a mud knife.

Make sure you have moisture barrier behind the cement board.

Go to YouTube and watch the excellent vids from tilemasterga - you'll learn a thing or two that will help you.

Depending on the 'waterproofing stuff' you may not need to do anything.

You'll fare better by heading on over to the John Bridge Tile Forum and starting a thread there.
