Is there anyone in Tauranga Papamoa area that can be recommended for repairing leaking colour steel iron roof. 20 years old now and just noticed a couple of brown stains in kitchen. Textured ceiling and when I touched with back of hand the stained areas are damp indicating a roof leak.  No pipes are in the roof as all pipes are in the concrete floor. Then I need to find how to remove the stains.
 My days of climbing on the roof are over now so cant get up and check myself

You need to be careful of textured ceilings, as it could be asbestos, so you don't want to really touch it.

Does it have lead flashings?, Becuase they can crack, causing leaker I have found. A popped screw, and blocked gutters/valley a can be another cause.

this ceiling is not asbestos.  I know that with 100 % certainty.  The house was built new in 1993 and personally knew the builder who now has passed on.  The roof doesnt have any lead flashings and under the apex it had a heavy duty plastic liner and then looks like silicon sealer.  Of course that might have let go now
