What material should you use to repair a flat roof?

I want to make sure rain cannot come in.

Talk to a roofing contractor 1st. Not a trivial smear with tar situation most times. You need to seal all the cracks after checking for rot and termites, and making a decision if the existing membrane is sound. Some roofs after many repairs need to be removed and started over. The weight of more material would collapse the roof.

I would use roofing cement, some patching fabric, possibly some sheathing, and some tools. The tools you will need include some old rags you have and a heavy duty razor.

A roofing hand roller tool, some EPDM rubber glue and peel and stick roofing tape, as well as a paint brush to help spread the glue.
