Thaey CUT my UTILITIES

If Ryan homes is building next to you, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!!! They will CUT your utility lines multiple times and offer little more than a "sorry for the inconvenience..." This has happened 3 times within 2 months and I can't wait for the day they are gone...

A new build in progress

19 hours before my wife and I, settlement the building project manger contacted me and stated we can’t close due to improper submitting of inspection paper work to the county. I, understand your company builds a lot of hoises in this county so I don’t see this happening. Also we were not notified of any inspection paper work you were waiting on at the time of our final walkthrough. Also when asked, your building project manager was aware of this situation he advised that he knew about a whole day prior to telling us. We have to move out of the house being sold in 5 days this won’t be resolved. And I took of for the closing and the move, now this being pushed back I won’t be able to take off. I like some help in housing and to move my personal belongings.

Stay away from the big builders.

Home buyers need to understand that Ryan Homes as well as other large builders can supply the most square footage and bang for the buck. They do this by being power buyers on materials and with the labor as well. They will tell the sub-contractor that they will give them all the work they can handle but at a cut rate that may be 25%-50% less than the going rate. The only way the sub-contractor can make money like this is to get the work done as quickly as possible. When that happens you get sub-par workmanship. Home buyers need to understand that before buying a home. No smaller builder can give the square footage for the money as these large builders. If you want quality, you HAVE to stay away from these guys. With a smaller builder you will get better quality, have more control and get better service but the downsize is that you will get less house for the money and it may take longer to build. As you may be able to tell, I am a contractor. Without defending Ryan or any other builder, why would you expect to get the most square footage, the most little bells and whistles and get a house built quickly, all while paying less money. My motto is, good, fast and cheap, pick any two. Buying/building a home is a large investment, do your homework. There have never been many good reviews about these guys, that should tell you something. No one is going to protect you against yourself. Most of us are the same, we want to complain about the "Walmart's" but we all want to get the best prices.

The mistake that you make on your assessment of Ryan homes and their poor quality as giving the home buyer the biggest bang for his buck is incorrect. Did you ever stop and think that Ryan is out to give their stockholders the biggest bang for their buck at the expense of the home buyers.

In 2012, NVR/Ryan stock was $700 dollars per share.

It closed on Friday, July 12, 2019 at $ 3849.63 per share! That is the reason that they purchase all of the materials and labor, both substandard and it's not for giving the home buyer anything but rather fleecing him on a brand new handyman special.

Never ceases to amaze me that people continue to buy these poorly constructed Ryan shanties and are then surprised by the lousy quality. There is so much info out there, that minimal research would scare away all but the most profoundly thick consumer.

They built an eyesore in Jefferson, MD, and the siding was buckling within 2 months. They ended up changing it before they began selling, but only because it was so obvious and the first thing one notices. I feel sorry for the people buying in this lemon orchard and I’m sorry that the land is defaced by this cheap mess of inelegantly designed, human storage sheds for.

They pay decent money for these places, but they get low quality plywood and vinyl slapped, up quickly by immigrant labor. Caveat Emptor!

Cheap material

I had a home built four years ago and the upstairs floor is squeaking when you walk and progressively getting worse. Had to pay a electrician to come over and connect the wires in the basement, so that my outdoor electrical outlet would work. Someone just folded them up and closed the cover, without connecting them and I did not discover until a year later and Ryan Home said it was passed the date for them to send someone out. I have water leaking under my kitchen sink, because they did not properly seal. They was supposed to have fixed, but they did not.

Upstairs flooring squeaks (loudly) like the house is 30 years old.

Ryan Homes came by to apply break-away screws to the upstairs flooring of our 6 month old house. It didn't work at all. Now we're told we will have to tear up carpet and remove base boards in order to correct the problem. Will that work? Will the problem re-occur? Will the problem develop elsewhere on the floor? Who knows. Told by a Ryan rep that this occurs in one or two homes out of ten and that other builders experience the same problem. If his estimate is anything close then that is a whole lot of homes and the incompetence is apparently industry wide. So, I'm one of many. That makes me feel so much better. The fact that homeowners have to put up with this kind of disruption in their lives because the Ryan Homes of the world have a build it and pray attitude is absolutely INEXCUSABLE. If I had known such a high percentage of 2 story homes has this problem, I would have gotten a ranch. My complaint may help individuals who haven't decided between a 1 or 2 story.

We built what we thought was going to be our dream house by Ryan Homes in Columbia, SC. We are sick to the point of misery due to the poor workmanship, cheap materials, etc. We cannot enjoy our new home and really have lost interest in trying to make the yard look nice...

Literally the poorest construction of any builder around. The left holes in the walls, placed missed walls in the bathroom 2 weeks before final walk through. Put plaster over damaged doorways. Painted walls and didn't even take off the wall switches ( just painted over them)! I even found dead rats when walking through! Stay away from them they are awful! I complained and they still didn't give me my deposit back!

Our backyard is a total disaster zone. After re-sodding "some" of the property, the majority was left unkempt and had clay lines everywhere. They even left a major portion of the yard untouched and just left clay, weeds and *** in the top right hand corner. Drainage is a major issue now. Due to the lack of grading, we now have to deal with mud pits everywhere. Noone will respond to my customer service requests.

We are in Richmond, VA and only been in our house 9 months. We have the same exact issue! Our sod is beyond repair and I feel like the whole yard needs to be dug up to be fixed.

Good for you!! I am glad that you and your neighbors took a stand against a greedy company. Others should follow your lead and take their issues to the news and make the public aware of the shoddy practices this company takes.Especially since they refuse to address the issues.

I had the same situation when I had owned a Ryan home. Unlike this homeowner.

Ryan did reach out to me with suggestions when I has complained about the inadequate size heating unit for my home. Here were some of their suggestions. 1. Keep the clothes dryer door open while drying your clothes.

2. Keep the oven door open while baking and cooking your meals. 3. Put sternos underneath the chairs of your gusets and yourself for added heat.

4. Spend time in a friend's home that isn't a Ryan home during the winter. 5. If the hot water tank heater hasn't failed then spend time in the hot shower.

6. Spend time in your car with the heater on but remember to keep the garage door open. 7. Bodit's also give off heat so Ryan suggests inviting as many strangers as you can over to your home to gather this heat.

Post a free pizza party at your address in the local paper on a cold night. Ryan also wants it's customers to be aware of the good beneficial savings that have come from their customers in their cold homes. Ryan homeowner Mary Higgins has not spent any electricity on her refrigerator to keep its contents cold. She just keeps the doors open and the unit off.

Another Ryan Customer Paul Henshaw had open up a Cryogenic facility at his home, charging people with terminal illnesses to be frozen.

They will be unfrozen several years later when the heating system is fixed. By that time they may find a cure for the disease.
