Can I tile directly on Hardiebacker board?
Yes. Once you’ve successfully installed the Hardiebacker board to your chosen wall or floor, you’re ready to start tiling. No priming is required, although we do recommend wiping the board to remove any dust caused by drilling and create a clean surface for tiling.
