How to Install Tile Backer Boards

May 10, 2024 Paul

To start with, you must ensure that the surface is clean and dry. You then need to plan where your boards are going to and how they are going to be laid out. Be sure to follow any manufacturers guidelines when installing the boards.

Installing onto floors and bricks

Check the surface to make sure it is clean, dry and free of any damage. Once the check is satisfactory, and your floor is solid and secure, prime the boards with the necessary primer (this will depend on what the final use will be). You’ll then need to put a layer of flexible adhesive down and lay the boards on top using a brick pattern, making sure that no corners touch each other. You’ll then need to secure the boards using 40mm galvanised washers & 25mm screws. You’ll then need to use sealant to fill all the gaps between the walls and floors and finally, reinforce the joints with joint tape and cover with flexible adhesive.

Installing onto studwork

This is a much simpler and more straightforward process than installing onto floors. To start with, make sure the surface is clean, dry, and sound. Fix the boards to the studwork using 40mm galvanised washers & 25mm screws and then reinforce the joints with joint tape and cover the tile backer boards with flexible adhesive.
