mr mojo - re rubberoid

thank you for your response............i have a flat roof...plywood deck...looks like maybe 4 sheets tar paper over it..then originally hot tat...some gravel over it.............had developed a leak....have removed the tar and gravel (and paper) from a 4 ft section (ready to cut the 4 ft sq of plywood out......replace plywood........

am thinking...just tuck tar paper (4 layers i guess) under edges of existing roof...cover with fibered roof cement and/or tar...some new gravel.......however..had heard of this rubberoid stuff...........can you melt that with a small propane torch...or would that not provide enough heat?.....or just use the tar paper as above...

thanks again for your insight....
