I just went to my local HD store in Rocky Mount, NC and discovered that they
do not carry chair rail backer board. I'm talking about the 5" wide board
that you mount chair rail on. They had chair rail but no backer board. I
just thought it was weird. Has anybody else run into this or is just this
one store? Just curious.
I can't seem to locate a good picture of it right now, but what I am talking
about is a flat 5" wide board that has a bead routed along the top and
bottom edge. It is probably a little thinner than 3/4" though. It's common
in this area for this to be installed first and then the more decorative
chair rail is installed on this backer board. In my bedrooms, the backer
board is installed without any chair rail. Hope this helps.
