GoBoard vs. Cement Board
GoBoard is up to 80-85% lighter than traditional boards. Overall tile installation prep time is reduced because waterproofing is built-in, eliminating extra steps since only board joints and fastener locations need to be sealed.
Pro SealantSeal the GapsUse GoBoard Pro Sealant to waterproof GoBoard joints and fastener penetrations and adhere GoBoard to itself and other building materials.
FastenersSecure to Wood or Metal StudsThese corrosion-resistant fasteners have larger diameter heads for more holding power and the smooth underside of the head helps mitigate over-driving the screw.
WashersIncrease Fastener SpacingTake advantage of increased allowable spacing when used in combination with GoBoard Fasteners, or fortify your installation for heavier or larger format tile.

Remodeled my restroom and decided to use GoBoard after seeing positive relics from other people that have used this product. To my surprise GoBoard was extremely easy to work with and cut down the install time by at least half.

About time someone came out with a good quality backer board for tile showers. Goes up twice as fast as cement board, no mess, no dust. Only requires waterproofing at fasteners and joints, unlike cement board. A little pricey, but 1/2 the cost of Schluter waterproof board.
