In response to Re: concrete backer or green sheet rock?
: : : I am replacing a tub enclosure with ceramic tile. Should I use the concrete backer or the green type sheetrock. I have two layers of sheetrock now. thanks for the help.

: : Two layers now? Is this in a condo or townhouse?

: : I like to use concrete backer board with vapor barrier on the wood studs, and open space between the studs. Concrete board will wick moisture to the back. Terry

: :This is a 35 year old house. What exactly is a vapor barrier? Plastic or roofing felt or do you just ask for it. Thanks so much for you help so fast. I love your site.

Plastic bisqueen will do. Thanks, Terry
