1968 Dbl wide how much cost clean roof dried out tar patches & apply plastic cement

live Ogden utah. Husband ran away in march after 18 yrs. Here I am, winter here trying to repair roof and everything else he has neglected for 10 yrs. There is black tar patches everywhere. I stepped back after shrink wrapping swamp cooler and heard CRACK, looked down one those tar spots cracked. (like 2 feet). I will post a picture 2morrow for u guys. I think leaking along the peak down the middle.Ceiling is falling and I can see water marks down the wall running into my breaker box. NOT GOOD HUH? Master bath directly opposite side of house ceiling almost completely down. he didnt want to fix small water leak 5 yrs ago so shut off master bath just opened door 1st time since then. Realized leak from top worse than one from bottom. I am so screwed. mom in law will help pay to get roof fixed this week. Snow comin quick! I have windows with water dripping from frame? Thanks I just feel it I know I came to the right place for help and answers. I get that piture on here in the morning.

Welcome Tuesday----You will need to get on the phone and start calling local roofers---

The cost must be determined by an experienced roofer who has walked your roof.

If the place has had leaks for a while there will be some rotted wood under the tar paper.

Also local labor and insurance rates will affect the cost----So --ask a few friends if they know a roofer --look in the papers---and start making calls---this time of year is crazy busy for roofers--so be prepared for that.---Mike---

Some pictures would be helpful.
Why are there tar patches everywhere?
Metal roofs don't usually require spot patching that I know of.
