A roof symbolizes protection, security, shelter in general, or the family home under which you find shelter and comfort. Consider the state of your roof—is it in good condition, weatherproof and complete, or is it in need of repair? If the latter, do you need to think something through more carefully? In architecture, particularly in churches and temples, the roof symbolizes the dome of heaven, so if a leaky roof features in your dream, one interpretation might be that an awareness of your unconscious is slowly making itself known to you. Typically, leaky roofs in dreams warn that the very structure of your life is on the verge of collapsing on top of you unless changes are made in your waking life. To see a roof is also an overview of how you see yourself and who you think you are.
