Depending on what kind of shape your roof is in and how coats it has had, you may have the option of putting a membrane roof on it.

If it is hot-mopped tarpaper, unless it is significantly bubbled or peeling or has many layers already, you should be able to recoat it with another hot-mop asphalt layer.

You need a roofer specializing in flat roofs Search the List (in the green banner bar above) for local contractors and reviews - you will have to select a few highly rated ones, then call to find out how experienced they are with flat roofs. Unless you are in an area with a lot of flat roofs on houses, you may have to go with a commercial building roofer - they tend to be flat roofs.
