I am just about finished tiling my neighbours En-Suite. I am boxing in the
waste pipes and have used 4" x 1" for the upright bits and I am looking for
something for the top. It measures 1.25 m my 90mm and will not be taking
any weight. Can I use hardboard (rough side up) to tile onto or will the
adhesive cause swelling problems? I am asking because I have some hardboard
in my garage and if is will be OK I do not need to make a trip to Been &
Queued in the morning. Would it be better to use 'No Nails' to fix these
few tiles or is that a no no?
Thanks for the reply but in this situation ( 4 foot long x 3 1/2" wide
strip) I think 1/2" ply or MDF would be overkill. I can go purchase 3 or
4mm ply but I have hardboard in the garage and was trying to save a trip out
in the morning.
If your 4 x 1 uprights cover the whole 4ft length, you'll have 2 edges
to stick the tiles to. You may not need anything across the top, but
it's a nice little ledge for glass bottles and things, which will crack
the tiles if dropped. Hardboard is really no good at all but I suppose
you could glue 3 or 4 pieces together if it's quicker than going to B&Q
