    Hi, just a quick question. What screws should I use/you use on new cement boards in the bathroom before tiling? The Hardie screws are not that great I'm told, do you have any links to screws good for mounting the panels to the wall.

    Dry wall screws are no good! Stick to the turbo gold

    4.5 heads and 25mm for 6mm boards on floor.
    4.5 heads by 35mm+ for walls if going into studs

    Also now only use turbo gold from scrwfix. Originally used drywall screws but they are so hard to countersink compared to the turbo gold screws
