Our Ryan home was built with Patriot brand windows. The windows are "thin," don't fit the openings properly, and have no edge insulation. Wind came in around most of the windows and we could not keep the house cool in the summer or warm in the winter. Also the house was VERY NOISY.
Ryan would do nothing. We were actually told that we don't understand how windows are supposed to work.
When we replaced the windows (after 2 years) the installer clearly thought we were deluded and were spending our money stupidly. Until they removed only ONE window. It was covered in mold around the edges and the insulation in the wall under the window was wet.
We have new properly fitting properly insulated windows now. There are no water leaks on the basement walls (which were caused by improperly fitting windows that leaked). The house is no longer noisy.
No matter what builder you use, do NOT let them use Patriot brand windows on your house.
