When I remodel the kitchen, I would like to have a tile back splash. Do I
need to put in the cement backer board or would drywall work? If dry wall
will work does it need to be the green board or regular drywall?
Depends upon the trim that's available for your tile choice. Most
standard tile has both surface bullnose and radius bullnose edge trim
Surface bullnose is used when there is no substrate built out from the
wall. "thinset' application.
Radius bullnose is made to wrap over a 1/2" substrate such as mortar or
backerboard. doubling up the drywall is sometimes done as well so that
radius bullnose can be used, giving the install the appearance of a
floated job. 'conventional' application.
