Revolutionizing Tile Installation: Discover the Game-Changing GoBoard

In the ever-evolving landscape of construction and remodeling, the materials we choose are pivotal in defining the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and quality of our projects. GoBoard by Johns Manville, a cutting-edge tile backer board, is quickly becoming the go-to choice for professionals. Available at Rubble Tile, GoBoard is not just a product; it’s a revolutionary approach to tile installation for builders, installers, and remodelers.


Why Choose GoBoard Over Traditional Options

The construction industry has long relied on cement tile backer boards for their reliability and durability. However, the waiting game associated with these traditional boards due to their curing time can significantly delay projects. GoBoard addresses this inefficiency by allowing for same-day tile installation. This innovation is particularly beneficial in fast-paced construction environments where time is a critical factor.




The Efficiency of Same-Day Tile Installation

The ability to install tiles on the same day as the backer board is laid is a significant advancement. It enables professionals to streamline their workflow, reducing project timelines and allowing for quicker turnovers. This efficiency is not just a boon for installers but also a great advantage for homeowners and project managers who are eager to see completed results without unnecessary delays.


Strength, Durability, and Ease of Use

Despite its lightweight nature, GoBoard doesn’t compromise on strength and durability. It is designed to withstand the demands of both commercial and residential tile installations. This durability ensures that the aesthetic appeal of a tiled surface is maintained over the long term, withstanding daily wear and tear.

The user-friendly nature of GoBoard is another aspect that professionals appreciate. Its ability to be cut easily with a standard utility knife reduces the time and labor typically associated with tile backer board installation. This user-friendliness extends to various project scales, from small bathroom renovations to large commercial installations.

Frequently Asked Questions about GoBoard

Here’s a sampling of some of the questions we hear most about GoBoard:

Is GoBoard Good for Shower Walls?

Yes, GoBoard is excellent for shower walls. Its waterproof and mold-resistant properties make it an ideal choice for wet areas. The board’s composition prevents water infiltration, protecting the wall structure from moisture damage – a critical factor in bathrooms.

Can You Use GoBoard Instead of Drywall?

GoBoard is a superior alternative to drywall in tile installations, especially in moisture-prone areas like bathrooms and kitchens. While drywall can be susceptible to water damage and mold growth, GoBoard’s waterproof composition offers lasting protection, making it a smarter choice for areas where durability and moisture resistance are essential.

Can You Use GoBoard on a Shower Floor?

GoBoard Tile Backer Boards are designed for walls and ceilings and are not recommended for use on shower floors. Going with a shower pan kit option is best for the floor.

How Strong is GoBoard?

GoBoard’s strength is a standout feature. It is engineered to support the weight and adherence of tiles, ensuring a secure and lasting installation. This strength does not come at the cost of maneuverability, as its lightweight nature allows for easy handling and cutting.
