Asphalt Shingle

I JUST INSTALLED A ROOF ON M Y GARAGE, ASPHALT SHINGLE.
AFTER MUCH SPECULATION, I INSTALLED THE NEW SHINGLES AFTER REMOVING THE CELOPHANE FROM THE SEALING STRIP ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THE SHINGLE. I JUST FOUND OUT I WAS SUPPOSED TOO LEAVE THIS ON. AM I IN TROUBLE?

No, the strip helps facilitate installation in hot weather by protecting the sticky surface from bonding while be moved about. It will bond anyway from the heat, whenever it gets hot again in your location.

Hope this helps.

Holy Mackeral!
What a time-consuming task!

You did not hurt anything. The strip is only there to keep the shingles from sticking together in the bundles.

Once on the roof, the celophane serves no purpose.
