If you know how to fix the leak....fix it. If you don't know how.....take pictures and post it here.

Then....if we tell you to call a roofer.....most likely a good idea....if we explain how to fix it....go fix it.

How steep is the roof?
One story?
Got a picture?
Any idea what to look for as to why it's leaking?

How are people on a forum suppose to know your skill level when it comes to roof repair?

This thread has to be a joke.

This is the same guy from Pakistan who posted basically the identical thing in another thread last week. He has never responded to either post.
