This is typically the moment of realisation that you just sent a dirty text message to a close member of family, typically your mother, rather than the intended recipient.
Message: "i'm free this afternoon so come over and fuck me senseless, my parents will be out all day"
Recipient: Mum

The roof represents the limitations that loom over us all. "Raise the roof" begs we work together to increase our mutual potential rather than oppressing competition.
Let's raise the roof, my enemy; the glass ceiling is keeping us all down.

See the Glass Ceiling Act, as part of Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 199l.
