Grout joints aligned with hardibacker joints

Have hardibacker down in kitchen, and our preferred tile layout has the grout joints lining up over the hardibacker joints. Is this a problem? Should we adjust our tile layout to avoid this?

It's not a problem provided you installed the Hardibacker in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, and your subfloor and joists are up to specs.

Remember to tape and mud the backerboard joints as you tile, if you haven't already done so.

Hey NeedHelp!

I just want to say "Welcome Back!" After an eight year absence you return. That has to be some sort of record. We would appreciate you adding your first name to your signature line...you may be close to being a charter member!

If that doesn't work, I'll always think it should have.
