Durock® Brand Cement Board

Durock® cement board offers architects, builders and tile contractors a strong, water-durable tile base for tub and shower areas. Board is readily applied over wood or steel framing spaced 16" o.c. with corrosion-resistant wood or steel screws or hot-dipped galvanized roofing nails. After joints are treated, ceramic wall or floor tile is applied using latex fortified mortar or Type I organic adhesive.

Durock cement board is preferred by many applicators as a base for directly applied finishes, tile, stone and thin-brick used in building exteriors.
