Aquaboard or plasterboard?

Aquaboard or plasterboard?

When it comes to wet rooms, it’s important to use materials that are resistant to water and moisture to prevent damage and mold growth. While both aquaboards and plasterboards can be used in wet rooms, aquaboards are specifically designed for wet areas and are a better choice.

Aquaboards, also known as cementitious boards or tilebacker boards, are made of a cement and fiberglass mesh composite material that is highly water-resistant and durable. They are designed to be used in wet areas, such as bathrooms and wet rooms, and are an ideal substrate for tiling.

Plasterboards, on the other hand, are made of gypsum plaster and paper and are not suitable for use in wet areas. While they can be used in dry areas of a bathroom, they are not recommended for use in wet rooms or areas that are regularly exposed to moisture.

In summary, if you are planning to create a wet room, it is recommended to use aquaboards rather than plasterboards as they are specifically designed for use in wet areas and provide better resistance to water and moisture.
