Ryan uses low bid contractors, you can tell by the workmanship and the number of problems they have. Major issues, and they don't resolve the issues until you write letters to the president. Worst mistake I've ever made, after nine months, issues like siding has to be...

While modern technology through the discovery and use of new materials has improved the insulation and comfort of a home. The modern greed of trying to earn a buck the fastest way by hiring cheap labor ruins all of that.

It's one of lifes costly lessons which I have also gone through with this company. A home, especially a brand new one, should be a source of pride and security. Security, say in being cozy and in from a thunder storm occurring outside. My security in my Ryan home was worrying about how many shingles would blow off the roof or siding becoming loose.

This happened often to me, costing me money after my warranty ended. My HVAC system broke down 7 times in the short time that I kept that house. Besides my learning that new homes, or the contruction and profit made by cheap labor is something to avoid. I also learned that many amenities such as tennis courts and walking paths, promised, shown on community plans in that model by the developer and Ryan may never ever get built.

Another mistake is buying anything in an HOA. Here's another lesson learned. When the community pool needed a resurfacing job. The pool was closed for 3 months.

The clubhouse bathroom which was closed due to a leaky pipe was also closed for months. Exercise equipment that was reported as requiring repairs also sit idle for months. Your stuck with the landscaper they use who loves to do continual wheelies around and around your trees on your lawn. This causes tire imprints and dead sod.

Avoid an HOA. You either maintain your own lawn and have the ability to hire or fire whoever you want. You can join a gym or club with a pool. If they choose to take their time repairing it.

You no longer stay as a paid customer. The good thing about buying that older resale that Ryan will tout as a less efficient home. One that isn't in an HOA with all of these supposed amenities that are shown in the community plans is this. That home is built better built and regarding the surroundings of that older home.


There are no hidden surprises. Stores, lake, trails and greenery are already there.

After 11 years, the stone siding is cracking terribly, air vent inside a coset by the door, wood floors cracking and wearing away, windows broke, and a siding on my home was put on even though it is the wrong color. More serious though, the ground the home and homes...

They overlooked the radon issue in my house as well. I will be out $1,500 to install a mitigation system in order to sell the house.

I lived in the home with my newborn daughter and had no idea what radon has even was! I am now in the process of selling, and had a radon test done for the new buyers. It came back well above normal and since it's such a huge health concern I am now having to come out of pocket before I can sell it. More importantly, I am beyond terrified at the potential health risk that my little girl has incurred.

I also had a large sink hole in my back yard that they refused to come fill in. Not to mention roof damage, water damage, poor windows, foundation wrap that is separating from the house, a driveway and walkway that are tripping hazards, and not enough backfill around the entire house to promote water drainage away from it. All this and the house isn't even 4 years old!

I will never recommend them to any potential home buyer and do everything in my power to get the word out to people thinking of building with them. Incredibly displeased.

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.

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 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 understand completely especially when the litigation is causing other problems in Elkridge!! Extremely overcrowded schools.

No community center yes!! Come to GECA meetings and get involved to fight the Liparinis of the world!!


I would suggest spell check on your web page. It's hard for an individual to take you seriously. Just saying......

Absolutely the worst home I have ever owned. Cheap fixtures, poor trim, barely acceptable construction methods, I can go on and on. My house is poorly insulated (bare minimum)my gas bill is crazy in the winter. No wall is straight they had to redo everything. The...

ESB, if you are still out there... I am currently having a new townhome constructed and am unable to be there to view the work in process on a daily basis.

However, I plan to get to the site at least weekly. Based upon your experience, do you think I would be able to catch any project flaws visiting at that level of frequency?
