First of all check your roof and spot the leaking point. Clean that place nicely. Don’t stand near the damaged place. Stand at a safe distance from it or it will get more damage to your leaky point. If you have shingles roof then remove the damaged shingle by taking out the nails. After that place a new shingle and nail each upper corner of it. Then cover every site of it with roof cement. Roof cement is the basic product for repairing leaky roofs.
In the case of damaged shake roofing remove the shake by using hammer and chisel. If the shake is in a good figure for reuse, then just cutoff the old nails and use it like a new one or just cut a new shake. Place it, nail it and then seal it with cement or other caulking material. Most of the trouble starts from jointing area like chimney and vent pipe. So check them regularly.
