quick question, which backer board is your preference for walls and floors
Ie marmox, hardie, no more ply, wedi etc

Wedi style boards are my favourite due to ease of use although I guess it may come down to who has stock locally, for me hardie is available over the counter just 2mins from home. Not the cheapest but for smallish areas not a concern. If a larger quantity needed I get a delivery from a cheaper supplier

Hardiebacker, Aquapanel and Pro Ply for floors. Orbry for walls or as an insulation board for floors.

Kerdi if I can sell it to the customer (and find somewhere to buy it)
PCS Delta board for everything else.

Hardi 6mm for floor overlay if I absolutely have no other choice. (hate the stuff)
