Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid as a rock, a very hard rock I've used these product extensively for my bathroom, and the fire proof wall on my living room, and fireplace surround. This is a very hard product to work with, and is a testiment to the kind of abuse it can handle and its durability. Its a muscle building exercise if you plan to do a large wall. Lots of scoring, and strategic cutting. I do [X] cuts for rectangular cutout and knock it through with a hammer. Drilling and using a razor to clean up the edges also works. I bought a large pack of razor for the job. Is it hard to work with at 1/2"? Heck Yes. Is the result worth it? Unquestionably yes. This wall will outlast many home owners, and probably the house. I feel sorry for the next person who wants to demolish this wall. Boy are they in for a devistating surprise when they take a sledge hammer to it and nothing happens.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money If you do not have to cut this cement board it would receive 5 stars. The problem is that it is almost impossible to cut. I followed the instructions provided and also bought the special scoring tool. 2/3 of all boards I scored and then attempted to snap broke in places other than the score mark. I would run the scoring tool up to 20 times on my mark to try to create a deep enough score mark.Some of my boards required only 1 inch removed. I had to resort to using a chisel on the scored line to remove it. I watched numerous YouTube videos and read a bunch of blogs to see if I was doing something wrong. It appears that this is a common problem. I would recommend trying another manufacturers product.

Can this cement board be used as on a exterior deck

Asked by: jim88
Yes I would think so because it’s waterproof. Maybe not for floor part. But for wall type project.

I want to build a pesudo shed for my BBQ so I can use it through the winter, will these sufficiently insulate the walls so I don't have to worry about fire or would they still need a ceramic fiber lining?

Asked by: Frost

I want to use as a non combustible material around a new fireplace install.  How do I fill screw holes and match to standard drywall?
