I am looking to install a backerboard in my new shower. I want one that repels moisture. Can you recommend one? Thanks.

RE: tile backerboard that repels moisture
DensShield by Georgia-Pacific is the only one with a built in moisture barrier. Other products such as cement board will actually hold water like a sponge. Also, it cuts and hangs like sheetrock and is very light and easy to work with.

Here is a link to the GP site with detailed info on DensShield:
