5 Best Practices to Install Long Tile Backer Boards

by Sarah B. Marketing Writer | Thinker | Environmentalist

The most interesting part of using long tile backer boards is fewer cuts and overlaps and joints. These single board provides a wider cover and more durable floor and wall installation.

In addition, long-size tile backer boards are easier to use, and they can be installed in a comparatively shorter period.

You can buy lengthened tile backer boards at online and offline tile shops and tilling accessories suppliers. And if you are wondering including them in your project, do follow these best practices -  

  1. Ensure that backer boards are installed at a tolerance of minimum +/- 3mm when the length of each board is 2 meters.
  2. If you are going to tile a plastered surface, make certain that plaster is in good condition. It should be flat, smooth (not perfectly smooth) and free from loose debris. If you suspect about the condition of the surface, fix it before installing long-sized backer boards.
  3. To install long backer boards on brick or block walls, you will need to stick to the tolerance mentioned above.
  4. Use the right quality glue, nails, screws, and tools to fix the boards on the surface. If required, hire a pro to get the job done the right way.
  5. If installing backer boards in bathroom or other wet areas of your home, consider waterproof material for best results.

There you have it. These were some of the important considerations to follow to get your tile project right.
