Kerdi Board

Hi Everyone,
We are in a situtation! our skins are not re-usable. We were advised by a small locally owned home design store(also a good friend to us) to use Kerdi board for our skins as well as partition walls etc. Has anyone used this? The more I read on it I think it may be a very good way to go. It is waterproof, temp resistant, lightweight, thermally insulating can be tiled painted whatever you like. IF anyone has used this please let me know your thoughts.
Thank You in advance

I would only use it for interior partitions, and in that situation moisture proofing and insulation are not the primary requirements.

and very heavy from what I recall from my home reno...I recommend continuing looking for ideas that are much lighter. Maybe use the kerdi in the shower wall area though.

I have used a product called alupanel as a fix in one of my trailers (google search it). is a thin aluminum skin overlaid on a coroplast core, and in another trailer I went to a specialty plywood store and bought nice double sided ply and fished with a Watco's clear brushable laquer

We used it for our bathroom. It is very light and strong.
I'm not sure how I'd feel about it as an interior skin. Maybe if it was covered with .25 inch natural wool felt. That is what we replaced our wall carpeting with. I think the seams would not look so good painted. Also its surface is not very strong. So your interior cabinetry would not have good mount points except on beams. And those cabinets would be very hard on the Kerdi board. I don't think it would last.

Thank you all! We will not be using kerdi board. The whole idea of a shell of was to get everything sound, stable and right! I am still upset about the original skins�� But it looks like we will go back to the drawing board(forums) and figure out what will be best

I used it just for surfaces in my bathroom that were getting ceramic tile. It is a WONDERFUL product. I have been in the commercial flooring business for 30 years and would NOT recommend it for your skin. It has a 'fabric-like' surface and will not paint well at all. I have no idea why anyone would tell you otherwise. It is designed to be a sub-surface, not a finish surface. Because it is essentially a dense Styrofoam it will NOT hold screws or rivets, so you will not be able to attach your screen frames, built-ins, etc.
