Backerboards are still one of the most popular underlayments for tile or natural stone floor installation.  However, cutting, fitting, gluing, and fastening backerboard to a floor can be a time-consuming process.

Now, the hassle of working with traditional backerboards has been eliminated to create a faster and easier installation. Ardex, a leader in the development and manufacture of high-performing mortars, thinsets and grouts, has developed an amazing self-leveling underlayment called Liquid BackerBoard ®. Ardex’s Liquid Backerboard® can be used in place of regular backerboard underlayments.
