    "No use (hardie backer) or similar as any water ingress and plasterboards turn to mush."

    "I would personally use aqua board but if you want to use plasterboard then use the green one as this is moisture resistant"

    "Hi John
    Yes you can use plasterboard for a wet room as long as it's only the walls and not the floor that's plasterboard and that its tiled afterwards
    Hope that helps if you need a quote please contact Stow Maintenance through the website and I'll be happy to provide that.

    "Yes but for wet room you need to use green moisture board as a minimum. Cement Board is best and then tape all joins"

    "I would always prefer to use cement board with taped joints to be sure that any moisture will not get through and will ensure a trouble free wet room for years to come."
