If the shingles are installed in cooler weather they will still "self seal", ( the black
strips,) on a mild sunny day
Expert:  Machinc replied 8 months ago.
The nailing pattern is the same for all locations and does not increase as any area may be subject to violent and sudden gusts of wind.
Expert:  Machinc replied 8 months ago.
