We signed a contract with Ryan homes under that impression that as long as we did everything in "good faith" to get a loan, then we were in compliance with our contract. Well "good faith" is a very broad statement which Ryan homes used against us to keep our money. ...

Ryan Homes-Shoddy work

We bought a Ryan Home as a spec home in 2007. The original owners backed out at the last second. We thought this was great, we got a new home for a decent price. They were smart, because we have had issues ever since. When you buy a brand new home you don't expect to have to start fixing things right out of the gate. We have had several cracks in our basement walls allowing water to get into the basement. We are told this is from the house "settling". However, my parents built a house 20 years ago (not a Ryan Home) and have never had this issue. Also, our AC is already leaking which we found out is from a damaged coil, which we're told is most likely from when it was installed, so someone had damaged it putting in it! The drain in the basement that the washer uses to dispose of water was blocked because someone had backed into the PVC pipe in the driveway, cracked it, allowing pieces of pipe to clog the drain. This also resulted in a basement full of water. The windows are drafty and things in general are just falling apart!!

Same as everyone else who have bought a Ryan home. After the one year warranty has expired they want nothing to do with you!

I have owned my new home for a year and a half and had a water leak in my morning room I called ryan they told me to call the company that installed the roof. After the issue was fixed by the roofing company they sent me a bill for $180.00 for a brand new home and roof?

Like I said same old story with Ryan they suck you in and after the year is up they want nothing, I mean nothing to do with you ever again. Very sad!!!!!

the people they use to roof the houses NAIL into the roof with support runners and don't seal them afterwards..... you notice the leaks AFTER they are out of the neighborhood, and someone will get back to you......

Ryan Homes - Elkridge Crossing in Elkridge Maryland, So Many Lawsuits in One Community!

Our community is watching a residential community being developed by Ryan Homes and Brantly Development. The problem is that the community is slow to go up and there are so many lawsuits against the developer and home builder it is scary to buy. The lawsuits make buyers very weary about buying the community. Since Ryan Homes and Brantly development won't assist a consumer to find the lawsuits - we started www.elkridgecrossing.com to explain how to find the lawsuits in the state of Maryland. It is a sad day when we make the biggest investment of our lives and so many people are unhappy. Of course, you can't fight the mighty companies - some times you just need to post on websites like this!

I am surprised by this site, it seems a little insane that all of these homes have issues. In our city builders must meet building codes and follow similar methods for building their homes. It seems like some people are never happy no matter what companies do. I live...

I built my home in 2003. My windows are leaking and my front door needs to be replaced because of rotting wood.

Buying this home was the biggest mistake we ever made. All the ten year warranties are worthless.

I have been in a Ryan home for 5 years and I have had MAJOR leaks every year - front door, bay window, roof in 4 places, etc. I've had the same leak around 2 separate windows "fixed" seven, yes seven times. It still leaks and they won't return my calls any...

I can sympathize with Ryan customers who got stuck with these ***-boxes, but my advice to most people would be to simply steer clear of new houses. Since buyers have almost no recourse in many states and builders can always just put all their money in the mattress and declare bankruptcy (as the builder of my parent's house did), it's better to buy a house that's been around long enough for the repairable problems to have been fixed and for the un-repairable ones to become obvious.

I hear of many problems with vinyl siding, OSB and caulking, exactly the things I associate with shoddy construction. A properly flashed window shouldn't need any caulking to avoid water leaks (caulk should only be needed to stop air leaks); OSB can be protected, but if it gets wet, it quickly becomes "vertical mulch". Vinyl siding is so ugly it's hard to imagine a builder with any pride using the stuff; if you see a neighborhood that is slathered with it, you don't want to live there; it's also a fire hazard unless it's put up over exterior gypsum board.

My condo was originally built as a rental unit. No one would call it "high end", but the exterior walls are solid masonry, the bathrooms are fully ceramic tiled and nothing leaks :) .

Stay away from Ryan homes!

Wow! I just read a post below that their windows were changed due to a wind shear rating! We were told the same thing...we live in Cecil Co & Ryan homes pulled out & didn't even finish our development. Have had some minor issues with the house, including the whole basement flooding due to the sump pump being wired wrong. This happened 7 months after we moved in. The only reason Ryan fixed it is because we live right across from the model home & threatened to put a sign in our yard saying "Don't buy a Ryan home". Someone from higher up called us real quick. Overall, they lie like crazy & I wouldn't buy a Ryan home again. Buyer beware!

Ryan Homes in Williamsburg, Virginia - Misled me on amenities

I bought a Ryan Home near Williamsburg, Va. summer of 2006, to be built by August, 2007. They made their deadline....barely. My complaint is that to "trigger" the sale of the home, the Ryan Homes sales person told us not to build a 3 car garage because,"We have a place to park boats". It's 2011 and there certainly is no place to park boats. Other lame promises: "We will have a swimming pool and a swim team". We FINALLY got a pool in 2010, but it's not configured for a swim team. They also told me the pond in front of our home would "have a fountain in it with nice landscaping around it." It was ALWAYS designated as a "dry pond" we found out later.

Ryan Homes will destroy and lower the value of good neighborhoods. Our community had vacant lots amongst custom homes so Ryan purchased them.

Ryan then proceeded to build very cheap houses. They put homes which are mainly comprised of vinyl siding (brick front) amongst homes that are entirely brick.

The interior of the Ryan homes have no trim work, cheap carpet/cabinets/counters, and no landscaping. The ethical values at Ryan Homes are truly lacking...it's all about the almighty dollar in their pockets and is at the expense of others.

Ryan Homes in Washington, District Of Columbia - Poor workmanship and no quality control

Will just state the facts: House not centered on foundation. Every wall had at least four major flaws. Driveway had to be replaced. Spacing issue's with wood floors. Upgraded cabinets are of same quality of stock items. Project Manager had no knowledge of construction. 75% of the windows had to the drywall removed and replace because of curves. Tapping and mudding is the worst I've seen. You can see every tape line in the ceilings. Lighting fixture had very large hole behind them, I guess if you don't see it's not a mistake. All the walls bow. Have been the house a year and 2 months and still finding issue. Ryan has so called fixed some issue, but will quickly bring out the housing code's to say, well in with in 1/2 in. I would recommend, if you are going to have a house build don't. Find one that is a least 25 years old and fix it up. At least when you paint a wall the line will straight between the wall and ceiling.

Being a Ruan Home owner since 2007, I would have to agree with pretty much everything the anonymous home owner mentioned above. I have had to have my entire bay window replaced due to excessive leaking; the electric/gas fireplace stopping working within 6 months of the house being built; there doesn't appear to be a straight wall or angle in the entire house; the finish work is terrible.

The fact Ryan went through several on-site project managers within months of my moving is, in my opinion, not coincidental!

Would never buy another Ryan home and would never recommend one. Unskilled labor and ineffective site management is ultimately the likely root cause here.
