Roofing Shingles

The flat roof on a rental properties carport had a bad section of wood. It was rotten. I cut out, removed, and replaced a 48″ x 32″ piece of rotten plywood with a piece of good wood. I cut the roll roofing a couple of inches beyond the cut of the wood. Now I need to put any sort of asphalt roofing back on to replace the rectangular piece of roll roofing that I removed. I have a bundle of plain white 3 tab shingles and a plenty of roofing felt, but no roll roofing. Could I cut the tabs off the plain white shingles and use the remaining pieces along with any lap compound to cover the wood in the hole that I fixed? Or should I break down and buy a full roll of roll roofing even though I’ll probably never use it all. What I found out was – I would buy the roll roofing as it is designed for this purpose. You could, depending on code, coat it with tar and do your own asphalt job on it. That would probably be cheaper and last longer. But the shingles are a bad way to go, unfortunately.
