To see a roof in your dream, symbolizes a barrier between two states of consciousness. It represents a protection of your consciousness, mentality, and beliefs. It is an overview of how you see yourself and who you think you are. To dream that you are on a roof, symbolizes boundless success. If you fall off the roof, suggests that you do not have a firm grip and solid foundation on your advanced position. To dream that the roof is leaking, represents distractions, annoyances, and unwanted influences in your life. It may also indicate that new information will dawn on you.
