Questions & Answers
10 questions

Can this be installed on a ceiling?

You can use these on a ceiling installation and just will need the screws with the tab washers when using these boards on the ceiling to maintain a full waterproof install.

Can the boards be purchased in quanity less than 7 ?

Unfortunately at this time a 7 pack is the smallest quantity that we offer on these boards.

Can this product be "wet shimmed"?

Laticrete recommends using the HYDRO BAN Board Tab Washer and Screws to attach to metal or wood framing.

I need 8 pieces...can a single piece be added to the seven or do I have to buy two 7 piece packages?

For shipping purposes, the only quantities that we can ship are 7-packs and a full 60-piece pallet.

We offer any quantity purchase for our walk-in customers at our location in Hamden, Connecticut.

Do I need to use the Laticrete hydro ban waterproofing membrane on top of this? What else would I need to use along with this to tile around the tub? Thank you.

Yes, you need to use HYDRO BAN Waterproofing Membrane on the seams and screws/washers to maintain a fully waterproof installation. The screws and washers are sold separately. You will also need to use the Hydro Ban Seal and Adhesive 10.3 oz tube in between your movement joints (item 9099-0601-2).

Delivery was on time and in good condition. Same cost as at my local tile distributor. Saved the time to pick up the product.
