Ryan Homes no basement door only an escape window

I, received a brochure on a house for adults 55+ at the Ryan Homes Legacy Signature Club at Manning Village Accokeek Maryland. The brochure show a entrance door in the basement rear wall. I visited the model and the basement door was replaced with an escape window. I asked the sales person why was the door replaced with a cheap escape window, she said that the elevation dictates the door vs the escape window. I asked her which of the home sites will have a door and she said that all of the sites will have escape windows. Ryan homes should not advertise the homes for adults 55+ when the basement egress do not meet the Building Codes for Amercian with Disabilities Act. I really like the house style but my decision not to buy is that I have limited use of my hands and it would be very difficult for me if i had to exit the basement by the egress window and climb a ladder to the surface.

I do not see a way to delete this post, but I would like to make it known that I WAS contacted by the VP of Ryan Homes, who went way out of his way to accommodate me after he received my letter. Needless to say, not everything was fixable but they did do everything...

I certainly with that for every thousand complaints posted online, I could see a contract ALL OF IT. I am an attorney not an architect.

It amazes me that so many people would invest in what would likely be the biggest investment of their lives and not seek counsel with a lawyer - not merely a real estate broker who takes some courses in property but an attorney admitted to the bar in the state where they intend to purchase. not one example contract is online despite everyone's questions regarding their rights and responsibilities in these agreements. Primarily, the language of the contract controls the bargain. There are rules of contract interpretation if there is conflicting language.

Ryan Homes has attorneys I assure you.

As a potential buyer I would just like to see the documents? Any suggestions?

We have NEVER owned a RYAN home, THANK GOD, but we came SO close to purchasing until we saw the home being built, they used some form of sheathing on the outside instead of plywood or fiberboard, we were shocked when our fist went clear through this stuff, then the...

Our home is leaking like a sieve. We just had our Insurance adjuster out and thought it may have been from the hail damage. He took one look at our siding job and said it's the worst he has seen. We have a front door rotting, smells of mold. The kitchen window leaks...

Water leaks, can you remove the manhole type cover and check the water meter? Make sure nothing is running from the house and check the meter.

If the meter is still moving, you can be sure you have a leak. You can cut off the main water supply from inside the house, and check the meter again. If stopped, definitely something from the house is leaking. If it's still moving it means someone damaged or cut the buried supply pipe while installing it.

I've seen this before, and yes, the water company will act like it's no big deal because they don't care.

In my case they had actually cut open the line on my side of the meter while fixing the meter. They wouldn't check into it claiming the extreme water use was normal, until I dig into it and found a *** leak in the ground.

We bought a Ryan Homes and were so upset about the products used in the home. They used the lowest priced prodeucts and generic windows, air conditioners, lumber, etc... The models look great but after living in home for 6 months you see warped walls, shaky floors...

Sounds like you saved a lot money when you purchased the home. Now take some of that savings a replace the products with what you want. Sounds like a Win-Win to me.

All I can say is Ryan homes sucks. They allow no consideration for exisitng home owners, undercut and kill market value with their cheaply built "low priced" homes. They shove big houses on little lots with no consdieration for neighboring home ownners. No...

Your local zoning departments dictate the distance a home sits from the property lines, if it is allowed the builders will build. Wood comes from trees, trees grow outside, decay takes longer than a month, and the felt paper that the shingles are laid over protects the roof sheathing, the water will evaporate,at least the roofers were making an attempt to work instead of going home for the day. Give them some credit.

Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY A RYAN HOME. Ryan uses the cheapest materials and labor that money can buy and it shows. On the surface, a Ryan home looks great, but when you actually start living in one, you will be shocked to discover how poorly built the home actually...

thanks for penning down everything.. snatched my feelings..you and I (in the fact most of Ryan Home owners) are sailing in the same junk boats built by one builder RYAN.

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...

If you really go to church ask your spiritual leader about your conviction of "let it be done unto others, as long as it's not me then I don't care." Myself, I don't deal with people who have knowingly caused great harm for profit, even when taking a morally higher road brings on great loss to myself.
