Backer board, also known as cement board or tile backer board, is a flat panel made of cement and fibreglass used as a substrate for tile installations. It provides a stable surface for the tiles and helps prevent moisture from penetrating into the underlying structure. Backer board is typically installed over wooden or concrete subfloors, as well as on walls and ceilings in wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens. It's secured with screws or nails and then seams are taped and mudded for added strength and waterproofing.

Sealant, often silicone-based, is used to create a watertight barrier around areas prone to water exposure, such as joints, corners, and edges. Before applying sealant, it's important to ensure that the surface is clean and dry to promote adhesion. Sealant prevents water from seeping into gaps between tiles, which can cause damage over time, such as mould growth or deterioration of the substrate. It's commonly used around tubs, showers, countertops, and backsplashes.

Grout is a cementitious or epoxy-based material used to fill the gaps between tiles and provide structural support. It comes in various colours to match or contrast with the tiles and can be sanded or unsanded depending on the width of the grout lines. After the tiles are set in place and the adhesive has cured, grout is applied using a rubber float, forcing it into the joints to ensure full coverage. Excess grout is then wiped away with a damp sponge before it dries. Once cured, grout seals the gaps between tiles, preventing water and debris from accumulating and compromising the integrity of the installation.

In summary, backer board provides a stable substrate for tile installations, sealant creates a waterproof barrier around vulnerable areas, and grout fills the gaps between tiles for structural support and aesthetic cohesion. Together, these components ensure a durable and long-lasting tile installation that can withstand moisture and daily use.
