The action and other elements of this dream should also be considered to get an accurate interpretation, but as a general guide: A tiled roof signifies swift success; and a thatched roof is a warning of danger through repeating idle gossip. To climb or stand on a roof predicts an impressive improvement in your circumstances; to see a roof on fire suggests that the things you worry about most will never happen. A dream of repairing a roof prophesies new sources of income; a shingled roof is a sign of emotional security; and a leaky roof indicates emotional and/or sexual problems. To dream of falling off or climbing down from a roof signifies a flash in the pan temporary success, which will be pleasant while it lasts, but you should try for something less spectacular next time.
