How to Begin Cement Board Installation in a Bathroom
As some of you know I've been documenting a bathroom remodel project we're doing at my brother-in-law's house. Today I wanted to share how we began the installation of the cement board in the bathtub recess.
It's a pretty straight forward project but requires some patience. It begins by purchasing the cement board in the correct dimensions for your project (either 5 ft x 3ft or 5 ft x 32 inches). You'll need to then get alkali-resistant screws and joint tape as well as thin-set mortar to embed the tape.
I highly recommend buying or borrowing a impact driver for this project. You'll thank yourself later for doing this.
Make sure to have a friend help you with the placement of the boards since they're somewhat heavy.
