Keep in mind it's always wise to keep some extra product, such as a roll of tape or some membrane for future repairs or replacement. If at the end of your job you have extra materials, consider giving them as a charitable donation to such organizations as Habitat for Humanity, or use the tape to fix jackets, shoes or other items.
