How to Install Cement Board on Concrete Floor?
In order to make installing cement board on concrete floor easier, it is recommended that you follow these steps:
1) You need to have some kind of leveling device. If you don’t have any, then you could try using a shovel or something similar.
However, if your floor isn’t very smooth and uneven, then you might not get the job done properly without such a tool.
2) After you have chosen a spot where you want to put cement board, then you will need to lay down some kind of backing material first. For example, you can use wood shavings or even sand.
3) Then, after the backing material is laid out well enough so that there are no gaps between the pieces of cement board, then you can start putting the pieces together.
4) Once the cement board is installed, you will need to check its level regularly. You can do that by laying a piece of paper over the surface and then sliding it back and forth across the surface until you see whether or not it moves up or down.
If it does move up or down, then you know that your cement board is at least level.
4) When you are ready to put the last piece into place, then you just need to push the cement board firmly onto the backing material.
5) Once the cement board is firmly glued onto its backing material, then you can let it dry overnight before proceeding with installation.
