Meet Mark Hands, a qualified carpenter with a vast amount of experience in the building and roofing industry. Mark has always had a passion for business and wanted to earn his stripes by working hard and learning as much as he could from the building industry. His journey started in Ireland where he worked as an apprentice carpenter framing roofs and then tiling or slating them. Sadly, the recession hit, and after four years of hard work Mark travelled to Australia on his OE where he spent his time building and roofing in Perth.

Now a decade later he is a New Zealand citizen and his passion has evolved into reality. Mark’s desire to provide the very best for all his clients, combined with his vast experience and strong knowledge of construction means that you can be assured that your project is in expert hands. He understands that you have worked hard to reach the stage of owning your own home – more than likely it will be the single biggest investment decision you will ever have made and he prides himself on ensuring that all work is carried out as if it was his own home, keeping the client fully informed throughout the process.

When Mark is not working on Element Roofing he loves to get involved in community work. He also enjoys spending time with his partner, participating in sports together, as well as challenging himself with triathlons and boxing training.

Meet Kelly Elwood. Kelly is originally from Liverpool, England which we do not hold against her. She is the Element Roofing rock and keeps everyone who works here in line. She has a fantastic eye for detail and scans every booking that is made to find any missing pieces, to ensure a smooth process from start to finish. Kelly handles everything money related and her numerical literacy surpasses all. We imagine it is like the Matrix inside her head; lots of ones and zeros. When Kelly is not at Element Roofing she is a busy mother of four who loves to brew beer & make cheese!

Meet Melia Blackwood. Once upon a time from Auckland, Melia graced our team in early 2018 adding a spark of energy and positive vibes.

She has a degree in the Earth Sciences and has an inquiring nature that allows her to gather an understanding of the ‘why’ and not just the how. This gives her the ability to select and recommend the perfect product for each of our clients.

Melia previously worked as a consultant for HRV, and as a result has a deep understanding of healthy home environments. She is very passionate about providing all Element Roofing clients with the best possible solution. When she is not working at Element she is a busy mother to boys, together they all enjoy hunting, fishing, skiing and travelling the great outdoors.
