    Hi folks,

    ive been having great fun clearing off a bathroom wall.

    I want to stick some backerboard up. The walls are still dusty (it was gypsum) as hell despite multiple brushdowns and some spraying.

    as it stands will the backerboard stick? If not, any tips for further wall prep?

    cheers

    Cheers, it’s “Qboard” BandQ sell the stuff. Manufacturers say to dnd and fix with anchors. It’s up and it’s sticking anyway!
