I am an old timer on some of these things,

In reply to Backerboard for tile shower by Dana M on July 16th, 2002 04:14 PM [Go to top of thread]

green board has been used for many many years, yes, it is not as good by far as that new cementious board. I AM NOT SAYING AT ALL THAT GREEN BOARD IS OK TO USE, i am only saying it was used many many years before backer board was ever thought of and did its job.

I installed a new shower pan in my shower five years ago and I used green board and I have not had any problems.

I will not advise one way or another. I will catch enough flak on this answer anyway.
