Wedi replaces green board and cement backer?

Oak_Orchard | Posted in General Questions on

Any thoughts on the use of the Wedi or Fundo systems? Looks like puting it over drywall will make a bathroom stand up better to bulk water, spray, and condensation. Also seems a better substrate for tiles than green board, cement backer, etc. My thinking is to use it on the walls and celing of a mechanically vented bathroom.

    Wedi tile backerboard has been around for years. To learn more about tile backerboard options, including Wedi backerboard, see Tile Backerboard Options.
