(You can use a 'real name' w/us now. We're all friends here!) Terry is right. I've heard of asphalt roofs being installed w/o paper. And, they don't have any more of a problem (should there be one) than a roof that does have paper. 30lb paper will 'take more wind' than 15lb paper until the shingles are installed. In short, a properly installed roof shouldn't have to be papered.
