Working With Us

SIKA Homes Vision Statement

“To be the preferred contractor of choice. A company that our customers want to work with and employees that our proud to work for”

We let the quality of our workmanship speak for itself, and so far, it’s been screaming GOLD. When we entered our one of our renovation projects (for the first time) into the House of the Year Awards, we took home the Gold award, Category award and Gold Reserve Finalist award. Now we’re one of the top 2 building companies nation-wide for renovations, with the final announcements to be held in November.

Sika Homes utilizes progressive building methods and innovative design methodologies to guarantee your investment is durable, practical and visually appealing.

  • When we build we use only proven construction methods and quality materials sourced and guaranteed by us.
  • We take a genuine interest in our client’s individuality and work with experience to successfully integrate this into each “dream build”. This ensures our end product is a reflection of our clients and works cohesively with their lifestyle requirements and personal character. We do this as trends come and go, a dream home requires the substance to be able to integrate design and individuality, not only for longevity, but for your own personal gratification.
  • Additionally, we work in conjunction with only the best sub-contractors which we have sourced and personally guarantee to ensure our clients are provided with the highest quality end product. Our subbies are forward thinking, likeminded precisionists who share the same vision of excellence and commitment to quality craftsmanship.
  • Lastly, we are passionate about what we do, we are forward thinking and we are living a vision created in 2009 which was to offer something more substantial and long-lasting to the building industry. This, however, does not equate to a more expensive building operation. We are competitive and this is important to us. We believe good design does not have to correspond with excessive expense just as excessive expense does not always correspond with good design.
  • Let us start with your budget, let us hear your vision, develop an understanding of your requirements, and together, let’s build your dream home.

To ensure you know exactly what is going on with your dream build every step of the way we ask that you utilise the help of our easily downloadable app. By jumping online at any time, you will be able to instantly access:

  • The project Schedule
  • What stage the build is up to
  • Keep an eye on how much money has been spent
  • What workers and subcontractors have been on site each day
  • Regular photos of site updates to share with loved ones
  • Plus, much more

Builder Trend also allows you to see when you will be required to make exciting decisions such as paint colours, fittings, fixtures etc. Of course, we will also personally inform you of these timelines in our regular catch ups.

  • We pride ourselves on supporting our clients through the entire build process; from conceptual designs through to the completion.
  • We will be with you at every stage and decision-making process whether that be for support and encouragement on tile selection or designing and selecting the interior for you.
  • We are multi award winning, we are the proud recipients of numerous separate awards. We don’t just talk about quality, we want to actively compete against it and when we do, we win.
  • We ensure our work not only with a Master Builders ten-year guarantee but also with a Sika Homes personal guarantee
  • We use a 280-point checklist over 8 stages to ensure quality at every stage of your build
  • We value transparency. This allows our clients to follow the construction process, on and off site, it keeps you updated and informed. It also enables our clients to see exactly where their money is being spent right down to the last dollar.
  • We have personally sourced and refined a group of likeminded tradesmen we trust and have credible relationships with to ensure our work and your dream build is a priority. This not only ensures quality but also means construction will not be held up waiting around for sub trades.
  • Communication is a vital part of the building process, you will be assigned a dedicated site manager that will liaise with you throughout the build and be available in addition to kai and Adam, to answer any of your questions or concerns.
  • We are hands on. You will not find Adam stuck behind a desk 24/7 – as owner, operator, our company values are at the core of everything kai and Adam does. This means you will see them getting stuck in and walking the walk of what we expect from our hard-working team of carpenters.
  • We are forward thinking and innovative. We have established working relationships with a variety of suppliers across New Zealand to ensure we are at the forefront of the building industry, utilizing and incorporating new building technologies and methods in both design and construction. This benefits us not only in the visual aesthetics and functionality of our builds but it is also reflected in the competiveness of our pricing.
  • We are competitive in our pricing and this is important to us, we believe good design does not have to correspond with excessive expense just as excessive expense does not always correspond with good design.
  • We want to be as transparent as possible during the building process, and we want you to stick to your budget. Nothing hinders the enjoyment of building a dream home like going over budget or being stung with overpriced variation costs. Our progressive building processes means we price the job and any variations or changes made by you are visible to you; including actual invoicing and payment structure.
  • We are honest and stand by our pricing. We are firmly against loading our estimates and quotations with pc sums only to sting you with actual costing one we have secured the build. This does mean that in tenders we are usually not the cheapest option but history speaks volumes. Every single time we have been given the opportunity to sit down and go through tenders in an open book manner Sika Homes has always comes out on top as the most honest and affordable choice.
  • Flexibility, we structure our builds so that you can be as involved or uninvolved as you like. Come and chuck a hammer around or sneak in for a beer on Friday and get to know our crew. Alternatively take an overseas holiday and we will call you when the keys are ready. Both options work and, importantly, both deliver on the same dedication to quality.
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."

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."
