    Any thoughts on this kind of campaign? It has 0% appeal to me and I wonder what the take up is. And the assumption is that all tilers like football?

    BAL ran a 'speed tiler' type comp a few years back - again, for me 0% interest. Not sure how much budget is allocated, but I think the money could be better spent on training and education

    Zero appeal to me, fix enough hardi backer, and get paid to do so, have far better things to do in my spare time than go and fix hardi backer for free to see if I'm quicker than someone else.....get a hobby

    Money would be better spent on moving away from Hardi!

    I don't fit hardie myself, have done in the past, but imo there are better options now. Will they make it true to life and have a curve of a shower tray to cut out or a notch here and there, or is it simply a 'look how quick and easy our product is to fit' - in a mock situation.

    Rarely Danny, just as a neccessity for say Victorian floor tiling where I need the cement board to handle the point loading. Marmox or Schluter are my preferred products - ease of installation and less health issues when cutting.

    I suspect it might be that pom/oz rivalry - throw in a Scot and it's like a red rag to a bull for an Englishman!

    Of course dear sir. I used to use loads for floor overlays but thats before I found wedi and kerdi boards. Its arguable if the heavier boards add more strength to a floor. My experience says not. Unless point loading is an issue I stay away. I also had a joke of a reply from a James Hardi rep when I asked about the silicosis risk.
    That aside, I find it expensive, heavy, hard to work with and I've personally taken water damaged walls and floors out where the hb has delaminated and gone very mouldy. Pics too if you like?
    It has its place and I know its huge in the us and oz but its not for me. I think there are better alternatives.

    Did you read Alan Reynolds piece about the headstone? Normally I find the guy very negative as he moans about the market so much but that story was quite humorous.

    No there were far too much other "hype" in there apart from that!
