Have you found the source of the leak???

remember, the leak or origin is far up the roof than where you see the stain. Go in the attic and with a flashlight look for a dark brown or black stain running down a roof rafter on one side or the other.

I usually have luck finding the spot where it leaked into the ceiling and work backwards from that spot up the inside of the roof.

Normally it will be around a roof stack, skylight, or fire place.
