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

Ok so the rating was not about me as an expert but the delay in the time it took for an expert to be assigned the question. Please note the ratings only get reported against experts, rather than fed back around overall service. Should you use the service again appreciate if you take that into account before rating.
