Cement backerboard has become an essential material for bathroom remodels. Instead of applying cement manually to the wall and floors, cement-based backerboard is much easier to install and has more consistent results. It is great for creating a flat surface to install bathroom tile and flooring. It is also effective for preventing water from leaking into the subfloor which is likely made of plywood. This is also effective for keeping moisture out of the walls, which could lead to problems with mold and water damage.
