We have two different control handle configurations on our new showers and both need to have Hardie backer applied to the walls.
The master shower has a double control for the shower head and the spray with a triangular plastic piece covering the pipes.
The conservatory shower has a more typical round black plastic covering.
Charlie asked our contractor how to deal with the Hardie backer in these two instances.
He said the black plastic pieces are just place holders for the actual mechanism so remove them and cut holes to accommodate what remains.
I hope this will work.
What are you looking forward to this summer?
