    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
