Treat them just like regular slates Ted. They have pre-drilled holes for fastening and you can use copper nails.

Has anyone actually come across any installation instructions, either from a manufacturer or other entity, for asbestos fiber cement roof tiles? I am coming up short.

In particular, I am looking for info about what type of fasteners to use, head size, diameter, penetration, and where to locate them within the shingle (i.e. how far upslope above top edge of shingle below).
