Tips for installing hardibacker?
I swear this project has been going on FOREVER! The husband finally agreed to let me hire someone to lay the tile and he is doing all the prepwork. Tile guy will be here Monday! Yay!
We have screwed down the second sheet of plywood to the original subfloor and now just have to get the hardibacker down.
Bill has already assured me that it is necessary to put the hardibacker in a bed of mortar, so we are planning to do that.
Here are the questions...
-is it OK to screw the hadibacker down while the mortar is still wet?
-when is it OK to walk on?
-any tips on cutting the stuff? I already vetoed the idea of buying $250 shears for just this one job and got him a carbide tipped knife. There are a lot of cuts, so there will be much swearing. :)
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
