Can you put Hardie board over drywall?
Similarly one may ask, how do you install Hardiebacker on drywall?
For most shower walls, the drywall installed in the home during the building phase is cut off at the edge of the shower opening, and then backer board is installed in place of the drywall in the wet areas. The backer boards are usually around a one-half-inch thick in both cases.
Besides, can you put stacked stone on drywall?
Regular stone requires backer board, but you can apply stone veneer directly to most surfaces, including drywall, concrete or brick. The stone veneer stacks tightly so you can't see the surface underneath. It also comes in various lengths, which allows for natural-looking offset seams.
Sheetrock, or drywall, is no different for tiling over than wood, plaster, cement, or other wall materials. If you are tiling an area that is not in a bathroom, tiles can be applied directly to the sheetrock simply and easily. The wall has to simply be prepared in order to complete this task properly.
