About Us

Central Roofing Company

In 2008 a couple of guys from Taranaki decided to start a Roofing business and thus Central Roofing Company was born. Starting off with a few people on wages, who we are happy to say are still with us and getting in Fiona to handle the books, we started out just doing Re-Roofs. Not too long after, we took over the Gerard distributorship for Gerard Tiles and got to work with some local builders to provide Tiles for new Roofs. In 2012 the regulations changed, and it was made compulsory to include Scaffold when Roofing, so we decided to have our own Scaffold department to supply and install Scaffold on our jobs. With steady growth throughout the years and recently, in 2018 we moved into our new premises at 9 Craig Place, Waiwhakaiho, New Plymouth.

Today at Central Roofing Company we stand for quality and service within the Roofing industry. Working with our trusted partners to provide you with the best option, designed to suit your style and budget from Scaffold to finish.

Duncan Corlett

The Boss

Duncan is the boss here at Central Roofing and he has been since he helped start the business way back in 2008. A few things have changed since then and he now has a lot more people to look after, all while managing the day to day running of the business. He does enjoy the odd game of Rugby and baking in his spare time. He is a licensed building practitioner, although I have never seen him use any tools.


Lenny Erickson

Contract Manager

Lenny is one of our contract managers who looks after new housing and spouting. He is one of the nicest guys you will meet, and I have heard God only lets things grow until they are perfect... well Lenny didn’t take as long as others. But don’t let his stature fool you, because he used to be a volunteer fire fighter who enjoys the odd fishing trip. And while he is used to looking up, he does enjoy watching those big metal birds in the sky. He is however, very reliable and knowledgeable, and has been in the building industry for 27 years, and he must like it here because he has spent the last 10 years at Central Roofing.


Eddie Scott

Contract Manager

Eddie is a contract manager who looks after the re-roof department. He always comes to work with a smile, and he smells nice too. He was thrown into his role as a contract manager for our re-roof department when a snowboarding accident took him off the tools. He now likes to ride the waves and go for drives along the beach in his Central Roofing car... just don’t ask about the time he got stuck in the sand with the tide rolling in. I will say he has the busiest department to look after and are pleased he has been with us at Central Roofing for 5 years! Eddie is also a licensed building practitioner.


Phill Marfell

Waterproofing Manager

Phil is our Waterproofing Manager and is an expert working on flat areas using Vikings vast array of products. He is an all-rounder and can also work on pitched roofs. Although Phil is quiet when he speaks, he can go for a 100km pedal on his push bike after work like it’s nothing, and his legs are usually smoother than most of the ladies in the office. You will know that it's Phil on the bike when you see his long dreads flowing in the wind. He is a licensed building practitioner and he has been in the industry for 16 years. We have been lucky to have him at Central Roofing for the last 6 years.


Tim Youngman

Scaffold Department Manager

Tim is our Scaffold department manager who looks after an array of individuals who, like himself, enjoyed playing with Meccano when they were little. He looks after all scaffold requirements for our new roofs, re-roofs and some of our commercial jobs. Tim comes from a varied background and used to work in Oil and Gas, and food catering... which I am sure he ate more than he catered for, as he's like a seagull - he knows when there is food in the kitchen! He holds tickets in scaffolding and has been with us at Central Roofing for 7 wonderful years.


Fiona Smith

Accounts Manager

Fiona is our lovely Accounts manager who oversees all the money that comes and goes. ...I hear she may not be so lovely if you don’t pay your bill on time. She looks after accounts payable, accounts receivable and financial reporting. Fiona also knows a bargain when she sees one - and she will quite often buy a plane ticket to anywhere and then tell the boss she won’t be in! She is living her best life and mine. An avid rugby supporter and a real team player. Central Roofing is fortunate Fiona has been part of the team for 9 years and she holds a Diploma in Business and Accountancy.


Diane Hoeta

Health and Safety Coordinator

Diane is our Health and Safety Coordinator and likes to make sure we are doing our best to not hurt ourselves. She is responsible for creating a safe working environment for our employees and subcontractors. You can sometimes hear her lovely singing voice in the office, and I am sure she lets loose when she is in the car. Di is a crack shot at shooting and enjoys crocheting in her spare time. She has a level 4 diploma in Occupational Health and Safety and has been us at Central Roofing for 1 and a half years.


Rachel Castle

Contracts Administrator

Rachel is the Contracts Administrator for the re-roof department. She makes a good coffee and that makes others in the office very happy. I hear that she is not fond of cats, but has two of them at home - what you do for your kids aye?! Rachel is the newest member of the office team and is learning the ropes quickly, and thankfully we haven’t scared her away!


Tara Stephens

HR Coordinator

Tara is the HR Coordinator at Central Roofing who works part time for us and her family business. If she wasn’t in HR, she could get a job as a party planner because she is great at getting people together and organizing work functions. She is kept busy hiring our ever-growing team and keeping the boss on his toes. Tara has been in HR for 16 years and has been working part time at Central Roofing for 3 years.
