You need much more information for an intelligent answer.
I suspect that you have a flat or low pitch roof. I doubt that it
is a concrete roof. It is probably wood framed, plywood sheathed,
and roofed with a 3 or 5 layer asphalt roof. It probably has
stone or cinder ballast.
If you cannot understand any of this conversation, you need to
contact a local roofing company for advice. Talk to more than one
company to see if they both see a similar project. There are many
solutions, too varied to address here.
