Unless you have a section of the roof which is covered by some sort of radio wave friendly plastic or glass fibre, you will have no luck. Signals at 10Ghz plus will not travel well through slate or tile, people have managed it through glass and plastic, but you would also require a lot of luck to have a roof with a surface pointing in generally the right direction.
