Q: What type of fastener do you recommend for floor and wall applications of Hardibacker?
A: In compliance with the tile industry, James Hardie recommends 1-1/4" long galvanized or stainless steel roofing nails (0.121" shank x 3/8" HD) or 1-1/4" long corrosion resistant ribbed waferhead screws (No. 8-18 x 3/8" HD).
