Roofing/Mansard roofing

Question
My roofer suggested using Owens Corning Duration Arcvhitectural Asphalt Shingles on my Mansards, using a minimum of six nails per full shingle.  Your comments please?

Answer
Hi,

You should have no problem installing 30 yr architectural shingles on your mansard roof. Six nails per shingle is required for a mansard roof due to the pitch. The only issue is that the tar strip or glue strip may not stick or seal down appropriately due to the pitch.
