Painting Hardi Board

Kevin asked 7 years ago

I have a damp closet below ground level. Instead of installing sheet rock I will be installing 3×5 sheets of 1/2″ Hardi Backer Board on the walls.

Can I tape and paint the Hardi board? I am using it instead of sheet rock so it wont retain dampness and I will not be installing tile only paint. Also, do you think taping compound would work?
