How far to HardieBoard up a 10 foot shower wall?
First, I tried to do a search but it did not produce a result I was looking for.
I currently ripped out an old, crusty cultured marble stand up shower that was positioned in a 4 foot by 4 foot space with the cultured marble walls running up about 6 feet high. Overall, the walls go up 10 feet to the ceiling.
Given the height of the walls, how far up the wall would I be required to HardieBacker (or other cement board) with associated vapor barrier if I am going to tile the shower stall?
Also, do I need a special cement board with an additional membrane for the ceiling?
Thanks in advance!
