Customer Question

A couple questions using backer boards.....1. Do I glue or screw them to a plaster wall.(no batten)2. I intend laying a stone shower tray onto existing plywood.
Can I sandwich the backer board between the ply and tray.
As you say if it does not need sealing, can I glue together with flexible adhesive cement.Regards,John
