About Us - Protect IT



Managing Director, Mark Richardson.

Qualified builder with over 10 years of experience in the building & construction industry.

After seeing avoidable scratches and damage to his clients homes, Mark decided to create a business specialising in temporary surface protection, and in early 2015 PROTECTiT was born.

Mark only employs fully-qualified technicians that have the required experience, workmanship & core values that PROTECTiT represents. All of our staff go through extensive training and are all site safe approved




Created in New Zealand, to Protect New Zealand Homes

Born through experience and knowledge of the building industry, PROTECTiT was inspired by Mark’s decade of experience in the building and construction industry, dealing with preventable cost and time wastage on numerous projects that could have been spared with a product like ProtectIt.


After extensive research, development and experimentation, the final product was crafted in all its temporary, eco-friendly, easy-to-use glory. With the beauty of PROTECTiT lying in its simple application and well-developed formula.

Together with his business partner and father, Lance, Mark purposed the PROTECTiT product to conserve homeowner’s investments and contractor’s time and money. Joining the mission with over 17 years of experience in property, Lance brought an appreciation of the importance of home presentation and the crucial responsibility to provide new homeowners with a great experience.

When builders rely on PROTECTiT for their projects, they aren’t just rewarded with time and money saved, but with the satisfaction that comes through passing over a home to its new owners, after a job well-done.

PROTECTiT has protected nearly 1000 houses in New Zealand and continues to grow rapidly.
