Cedar Shingles Installation


I'm looking for advise or technique used to install cedar shingles to a mansard style. The roof is only 7 linear feet long. The trick is it has a curve in it. The customer is requesting 18" x 1/2" cedar shingle.

Steam them and install them tight. Or just bend them in. How sharp is the bend?
