THree tab shingle application

Is it necessary to remove the strip of plastic from the back of the shingle before installing?

No...some people do it..but they are'll never see a Pro doing it. They are there to keep the shingles from sticking together during shipment and storage.

Read the package instructions for correct installation.

When I built my garage a few years ago I had about 4 million of them little suckers blowing around the yard. I thought they had to be off so that the adhesive would work.

Where were you then?
