In response to Re: wonder board
: We are remodelling our bathroom. Currently there is vinyl flooring with pressed board underneath.
: We will be installing tile on the floor and are wondering if we can just put pressed board down again or
: do we need to put down wonder board. Is the wonder board necessary to spend the extra money vs the
: pressed board? Also, what are your thoughts on wonder board vs. green board for the walls common to
: the shower which will be tiled. Thanks for your help.

Tile can be installed over the vinyl, or you can use ACX plywood or wonderboard, but not pressed board. Particle board will expand when wet and pop the tile.

For the walls, go with the wonderboard.
