Cathy in Newfoundland asked: 

I’m building a shed style house with 2:12 slope. Would asphalt singles be a good option? Considering metal but twice the cost unfortunately.

John Kenney of Cotney Consulting Group says:

Hi Cathy,
 

You can. 2:12 is the minimum pitch that shingles can be installed on. It does require installing a 2-ply underlayment of felt or one-ply of self-adhering underlayment. I recommend that in your climate, you use the self-adhering membrane along with the self-sealing shingles.
