I am just getting into the trade and I have a job of installing a shower.

The client has already removed the tiles so the surface is very uneven, so I was intending to use some type of board to cover the area before retiring.

The choices I am looking at are:
- Hardie backer board
- Aquapanal
- Marmox
- Plaster board (moisture resistant)
