There are different
kinds of materials available for your wallboards.
Among them gypsum wallboard and concrete backer board
are well-admired materials for bathroom walls.
Wallboards are easy to make and provides soft and easy
to paint surface. Following are some useful
particulars regarding drywall and backer board.
Dry walling your bathroom is a
good design to have the perfect water resistant finish. Water
resistant dry wall is made out of gypsum, which is preferred on
the shower stall ceilings and around the area of bathtubs. Drywall
is called Greenboard, generally. Green board is slightly on the
costlier side but better than any other waterproof finish.
Another best resolution for your bathroom is concrete backer
board. Concrete backer board has a solid concrete hub and is
armored with fiberglass mesh. It's ideal for wet areas like
whirlpool decks, shower walls and bathtub surrounds. Backer board
is generally tough to cut than wallboard. Use a straightedge guide
and score a line a few times using a carbide-blade cutter or a
short-bladed utility knife. Crack the board along the score line
and cut any remaining mesh. If the backer board doesn't quite meet
flush with a drywall surface, fur out behind the backer board with
felt strips, or for wider gaps use wood furring strips.
