About Us

Congratulations!

“Building your dream home may have always been on your wish list but it’s time to make it a reality and start a new chapter in your life. You’ve taken the first step by contacting us and would love to see how we can help you”.

Hi, I am Adam O’Gram, owner of SIKA Homes Ltd.

We are passionate about the building industry and specialise in architectural new builds, renovations, alterations and reclads. SIKA Homes have been building beautiful homes for over 10 years with a focus on delivering outstanding quality. Please take some time out to get to know a little more about us and how we work with you.

I hope this inspires and excites you to get in touch and join our journey!

AFTER BEING INVOLVED IN THE BUILDING INDUSTRY FOR MANY YEARS, BOTH IN THE UK AND NEW ZEALAND, IT BECAME VERY APPARENT THAT HOMEOWNERS WERE WARY OF THE TYPICAL TRADESMAN.

Countless stories of unreliable and untrustworthy builders made us realise that there was an opportunity to make a difference.

That’s why SIKA Homes is built on reliability and trust. We think that our clients deserve to be treated like our Mother (see attached for more on our ‘Mother’ policy).
Communication with a dedicated project manager liaising directly with you throughout the duration of your project you’ll be regularly updated and informed. Weekly site meetings and email updates complete with photos are all part of this service.

We have built up a solid base of reliable and efficient sub-contractors and suppliers. All the companies that we work with uphold our high standards of quality.

SIKA Homes Vision: Become a building company that delivers high quality builds and every client is happy to refer us to their friends. Each build is worthy of a Master Builders Award. To achieve this, we need every client to not only return, but to refer friends and family.

SIKA Homes Team Culture: Positive, supportive working environment. A family culture were everyone has a voice. Everyone mucks in!
So you can be sure that we will be out to impress each and every time.

Bedroom/Ensuite Extension
The Sika Homes team completed our bedroom/ensuite extension in June-August 2012 and they were hands down the best builders we have ever worked with. The project was completed in record time and 100% within budget- we were and still are so happy. From the first meeting with the team, we could tell he was a decent, honest guy and that went a long way in making the decision to choose Sika Homes to build our extension. Throughout the building process, the team was open, honest and a very easy to get along with- so important during a build. During the build, the team contacted us weekly with a breakdown of how costs were going so we were always aware of how the budget was looking. For us, on a very limited budget, this was a great help. The guys working onsite were hugely efficient- they were onsite each morning at the same time (early!) and worked solidly all day long. Communication was great, if they were ever not going to be onsite, or going to be late, they let us know the day before. Every single person working onsite was polite and friendly which was lovely. The site was tidy and organised at all times, something that was important to us with our 12 month old wandering about. Whenever the guys need to access the build from inside the house, it was always shoes off and very minimal mess was ever made. This was a breath of fresh air. In fact, we were not onsite for much of the build but had no concerns about this. In fact, returning home from work each day, we were staggered at what they’d managed to achieve each day. All their work was well thought out and impeccably finished. A year on from the build and we have had absolutely no reason to call the team back- not a single issue with any of the work they completed. Brilliant. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sika Homes to others looking to build. We are hoping to extend again in the next few years and Adam and Kai will be our first port of call.

Went out of their way.

"It was obvious from the start that Sika took pride in what they did and they went out of their way to assist in any way possible. The feedback from the open homes and other contractors was that everyone was very impressed with the quality of the finished product."
J&H Booth

No stress or surprises

"We are so impressed by the difference. Felt like we moved into a brand new home, a much better one at that! The team at SIKA Homes were so friendly and we were happy to have them around the kids, no stress or surprises. Best decision we’ve ever made."
Frances & Andy Jones

Everything we wanted and more...

"The team at Sika Homes are extremely open, honest and decent guys. They are also hugely efficient- we were staggered at what they’d managed to achieve each day. All their work is very well thought out and impeccably finished. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sika Homes to others looking to build. We are hoping to extend again in the next few years and Sika Homes will be our first port of call."
