Kerdi Board

As we all know Kedi Board is supposed to be coming out in the next couple of weeks, what i want to know is how often installers will be using the size's as fallows, 3/16", 3/8", 3/4" and 1 1/2", if you can give me some feed back it would be great and what you would use them for.

Probably won't use anything but the 1/2" . I would use a 5/8" if the had it depending on existing drywall I'm trying to meet.

Paul,
Every size. We had a countertop, Gail's boyfreind Tom had a countertop, and he does all his rentals with tile countertops, he called me wanting to know where to buy it. I don't want to tell him the guy down at Bowden has it. tons of showers coming up, know of one that's been waiting for awhile now just north of us. Just get the stuff. Then reorder what's disappearing the fastest.

3/16", 3/8", 3/4" and 1 1/2"


Hmm, I see that you are trying to figure out what application these would actually be used for and if they will move thru inventory. Good question..

I have no answer, but I see the dilemma you suppliers are being put in. So exactly how many pieces for these non-traditional thicness boards are youbeing asked to accept?


"Rammed down our throats" like the health care reform act, lol.

I'd say that most of the sales are going to be in the traditional thicknesses of 1/4" and 1/2". Installers will stick with what they know rather than experiment or get creative, UNLESS you present them with the repeated opportunities to challenge their imaginations. Tiled bulkheads, soffits and counter-tops are a pretty easy sell, but how about using the V-board to make complex vaulted ceilings?
"Familiarity invites innovation", you can quote me on that.

I think I would use 1/2 the most, but 3/4 could work good in areas with less studs than you would like or a tub that is too far off the wall. Wouldn't need shims, i guess just backcut it a little to get it over the tub lip.

Got a price list from a distributor today. They are not planning on stocking but say they will let contractors can place orders.

1/2" board 48" x 64" each panel is $77.71 retail, have to purchase in prepackaged bundles of 6 sheets. That works out to $3.64 per sqft.

I think what will be disappearing the fastest would be the 1/2" and the 1 1/2", hold off on the 3/4" and invest in a few of the counter trim profiles.

I don't see a market for floors for the thinner panels. We have Ditra for that.

I definitely see a market for 1/2 and either 2-inch or 1-1/2 inch. The thicker panels are structural. I've done some pretty unusual things with a combination of 1/2 in. and 2 in. board (interior structures).

I haven't worked with 3/4 and 1 inch, but there will be structural uses for them, too. It'll take a while for installers to start innovating, but the possibilities are limitless.
