If you have homeowners insurance, it is possible that you may have some coverage dedicated to your roof in the event of some damage. Or if you have a home warranty you may be eligible to get repairs or a new roof.
Getting a loan from a bank can be an option. Remember to read through their fine print and look at any interest charges you will put on your account.
