Wonderboard is a concrete based material that is mainly used as a backing for ceramic tile, brick or slate. A backing, also known as a backer board, gives a flat, dry, mortar-like material that is ready to be installed. The concrete based material is designed to hold in moisture, making a rot-free core for structures that are used in bathrooms, floors, countertops, walls, decks, ceilings, and vanities. The moisture and mold resistance makes Wonderboard ideal for interior and exterior uses. Wonderboard can be found in the ceramic tile section of most home improvement stores.
