To be used if you can have steady winds at 40 mph or gusts of up to 60 mph. NOTE:Some manufacturers do not have an approved 5-nail pattern for their shingles. Be sure to consult your shingle manufacturer's literature regarding nail patterns. It will be free on their website.

6 NAILS PER SHINGLE

To be used in manufacturer designated high wind areas, but if you regularly have winds or gusts of 60 mph or more, then this nailing pattern is highly recommended.

 

Remember that you need several days of warm, sunny weather for the shingles to seal properly. If you have high winds before the shingles seal, they may blow off, or dirt and debris can contaminate the sealant in which case the shingles will have to be sealed manually. Not a fun task.

Please note that the manufacturer's nail placement requirements may differ slightly.
