start by laying the tar on the roof at the front then stick the Felt down then put another layer aside it with a lap and continue layer after layer of the slope if you have one until the job is complete that will make it a water tight

If your looking to flat roof yourself I would advise maybe a firestone epdm rubber cover they come taylored to your roof with most suppliers even with out a trade account. with it being a one peice material with no joins you will have a far higher chance of creating a leak free diy flat roof. Easy step by step guides with the water based adhesive and contact adhesive are easy to use even for a keen diy'er
All the best
