HardieBacker® cement board from James Haride Building Products was chosen as part of refurbishment works at Shifnal Golf Club. When Ace Kind Ltd was asked to refurbish and re-tile the
shower and changing facilities at the prestigious Shifnal Golf Club, they were expecting a fairly straightforward job. However, Adrian Holt, a director of the Staffordshire-based building contractors, had no idea that the original plasterboard had started to disintegrate behind the tiles.
Nick Symons of Ace Kind commented; "HardieBacker was easy to cut and the tiles went on really easily and stuck fast. The installation process was exactly the same as ordinary plasterboard so there were no problems there. In fact we used a specialised tiling contractor and he liked it so much he is now specifying it on his own jobs."
Adrian concludes, ‘I’m really pleased that we decided to use HardieBacker cement board on this job. When the benefits were explained the client was more than happy to pay a little bit extra because they knew it guaranteed a quality finish. Similarly, we have peace of mind that the tiles are mounted onto a backerboard which has been specifically designed for wet areas and that it will not decay even if exposed to water".
