Worrying about nylon tie-wraps exposed to UV is always a worry. In mission
critical applications, I cover them with tape.
As for the purpose of the zip tie, methinks its purpose is to prevent
the upward-facing end strands from unraveling when ice comes sliding down the
Phillystran. You live in Louisiana, I wouldn't worry about it.
