cement board

The 1/4" cement board is typically used for horizontal surfaces (couters, etc), and it is fully adhered to a stiff substrate.

For tiled walls in a bath, use the half-inch cement board screwed to the studs, with a tar paper barrier stapled to the studs behind it.

What was the source of the water? Was it a damaged tile (hopefully) that compromised the wall? Or did it come from elsewhere? Hunt down the source of the water and kill it.
