May be considered 'critical services' and you may want to ask about a reasonable reduction until the repairs are completed. Are the services down for a prolonged period of time, or intermittently during construction?

I would suggest you ask your landlord to review the roof for it may cause them long term damage and may not understand of the problem.

You may want to ask your landlord to reduce your monthly rent and have you be responsible for the water if you are the only tenant.
