I installed a new bathroom vanity and in place of the medicine cabinet
that was recessed I am going to use a flat mirror. The vanity is 36"
and an off the shelf 36" X 30" frameless mirror from HD is what I plan
on installing. The only problem is that the hole from the old cabinet
extends about one inch to the left of the vanity, and I want the mirror
directly centered, so I will have to repair the drywall. I've got some
hardibacker board laying around already. Would there be an issue using
this instead of green board for the repair? I was going to install a
frame inside the opening from 2X2s to mound the board to, then tape and
finish the right side. Any problems with this cracking later with the
hardibacker to greenboard transition?
I just repaired the wall behind the washing machine
using hadibacker. It looks just fine.
I repaired the wall because the drain overflowed and
damged the wall. When I got the drain replaced I
decided to use the hardibacker I had because if it ever
overflows again it will standup to the water.
