Anyone who performs even the most superficial research on Ryan is well aware of the poor quality materials, workmanship and design of Ryan homes yet they sign up to build with Ryan anyway because they want a big, relatively inexpensive home. They hope their experience will be better than the experiences described in this website. However, the only consumers who are even remotely satisfied with Ryan are those who get lucky and whose homes are not rotting from water damage, leaking pipes, etc. or are to ignorant to realize the issues surrounding them.
Builders like Ryan (and even worse Maronda) make it almost impossible for decent builders to survive and as a result, consumers like me are stuck picking from Ryan or Ryanesque quality homes. My wife and I have been looking for two years for a decent quality, moderate sized home for our family, but with few exceptions the homes where we live have been built by Ryan or "builders" who build to Ryan standards. I've asked the building inspectors in three of the municipalities for the names of good builders and all three said "there are no good builders left".
I hope that every person buying a Ryan Home experiences the issues described in this website – you deserve it! Your unwillingness to buy a slightly smaller home and pay for quality is screwing consumers like me. I hope your roof caves in your head – maybe that will knock some sense into you!
