Or you can try it yourself, simple solution is:

  • Identify the metal that the roof is made of, and get a piece of the same metal to make a patch.
  • Clean the damaged area with all-purpose cleaner and let it dry, then go over it with a wire brush to remove debris.
  • Cut a patch at least 2 inches larger than the damaged area.
  • Use tin snips to cut the corners off the patch.
  • Fold the edges under about 1/2 inch, and sand the folded parts until they’re shinier than the rest of the patch.Put flux both on the surface to be patched and along the folded edges of the patch.
  • Put the patch into place and weight it with a cinder block or brick.
  • Hold solder to the seam, and use a soldering iron to heat it until it melts and runs under the patch.
  • Follow the patch all the way around with the solder and soldering iron. Try not to leave any open spaces, or the patch will be ineffective.
  • Cut a pair of patches larger than the hole.
  • Coat the roof area with roofing cement.
  • Press one patch over the area and apply another coat of cement.
  • Repeat with the last patch and a final coat of roofing cement.
